Pours a murky amber with a small beige head that leaves some decent lacing.
Aroma is sweet with a combination of fruity esters, apricots, caramelized sugar and Grand Marnier. There is a little bit of orange zest and other citrus notes.
The taste has a citrus zing up front but gives way to the alcohol burn and sugar coated fruits. The finish actually has a bit of yeasty spiciness that I didn’t get in the nose.
