adster (510) - HUNGARY - SEP 14, 2014
Mézhez hasonló küllemű ital, amely vastag, krémes, tejfehér habkoronával büszkélkedhet. Ez a krémesség aztán az egész története során nyomon követhető mind aromái, mind íze tekintetében. Gyantás trópusi gyümölcsök, tejszínes desszert illata töltik be a teret laboratóriumi tisztasággal, étvágygerjesztő kompozíció. Dzsúzszerű jellegében remekül egyesül a grapefruitos gyümölcsösség üde karaktere és a tejszínesen édes, a nyelvünkön szirupszerűen szétterjedő, fenyővel teletűzdelt kesernyés komlódesszert ízhatása. A teste majdhogynem tökéletes, minden kortynak mondanivalója van, elő-és utóélete teli tartalommal. Kifinomult elegancia és kiadós, harapható ízek, csemege a javából.
