Rubber and apple nose. Crystal clear yellow.. Dry and lightly tart apple. Just a slight hint of barnyard. Apple core finish. Tartness builds from start to finish. Dry but flavorful, somewhat one dimensional, but flavorful. Well executed.

Last one from the Richmond 17th, which turned out to be a pretty cool little gathering. Pours a clear very light straw color. Aroma is lightly of apples. Flavor is a match, just a very straightforward and enjoyable clean apple flavor. Just a touch of residual sweetness. Quite quenching.
