23/V/21 - 37.5cl bottle @ De Gebrande Winning (St. Truiden), BB: n/a, no mention of batch either. I have no clue how people determine which batch they’ve had... (2021-426) Thanks to ElManana for sharing today’s beers!
Clear dark purple to deep ruby mead, very adhesive, leaving some tears in the glass. Aroma: lots of black currants, berries, some blueberries, nice stuff! MF: medium to full body. Taste: sourish, lots of berries, lovely, some jam, more acidic as well, red currants, alcohol. Aftertaste: lovely, alcohol, nice sweet/sour balance, lots of black currants.
Mmmmmore of this yummmmyness. Deep purple, without smoke. Big smell of blackcurrant jelly. Soft, smooth, velvety mouthfeel with just a hint of tartness at the tip of your tongue. Taste is a ridiculous richness of honey and currants. Amazing balance.
Very dark purple, near black. Great viscosity, of course. Smell is straight blackcurrant concentrate, with a hint of honey. Taste is typical Schramms super rich jammyness with Suezloads of fruit. Blackcurrant in its purest, with just enough honey. Great. Maybe not my favorite fruit, but 5 because it's just the most intense fruityness I've had from them so far. Perfect tart-sweet balance.
0,33l from bottle at home shard by me. Batch 11. dark brown color, no head. smells black currants, honey, spices, bit peppery, very nice smell. full body, no carbonation. tastes of black currant juice, honey, spices, berry notes, bit earthy. finishes medium sweet with notes of black currants, honey and spicey notes. very nice one, not super complex but very good sipper. 8, 4, 8, 4, 17
