3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Lovely! Very cloudy, almost dirty looking, modest carbonation. A big whack of peach to start with on the nose and not much more at first. Not too bitter, slightly spicy, perfectly balanced, with a delicious aroma and taste of peach melba with a whiff of vodka. Donít drink it too cold.
