Unusual bottle in shape (long-neck wine type), color (dark olive green) and volume (375 mL).
My first venture into the American Wild style and I got pretty much exactly what I expected. A sort of cross between a Flanders/Flemish Red, a Lambic and a traditional Somerset or Devonshire scrumpy (cider to all of you in the USA).
Attractive dark orange pour with a decent head but very little lacing. Slightly cloudy, that looks a lot like chill haze but isn’t really.
Apple sourness in the nose and in the taste. The more I drink the more this reminds me of a classic framhouse scrumpy, but this is definitely more refined, more drinkable and smoother than the classic English country drink.
Thanks to BeerBeing for the trade.
