2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sampled from a 0.75l bottle @ RBNG 2014. Quite a cloudy thing this. Dark amber almost a little brown in the glass and it has a small islandy beige sidesticking top. Sweet concentrated fruits on the nose. Some yeast, red berries, lots of date sweetness. Almost a little sticky. Not to amazing honestly. It has some quite grainy flavors. Not as strong or sticky as I had hoped for or was expecting in the taste. Almost a bit watery perhaps? Prickling on the bubbles. A faint sourness also detected here. Not a worthy finisher IMO. 15.02.2014
