Overall: Smoked sausage in a bottle. In desperate need of a strong food pairing. I’d have it again with a Polish or German meal. Might go well with Pizza. Not a favorite for me, but the style is one of my lesser picks. It’s down there with Lambics. Seems well crafted, but somewhat weaker than expected. 16 out of 20.
