degbert (1169) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 14, 2014
Bottle. Pours reddish-orange with a light haze. Nose is honey, lime, berry, and a gentle floral note. Flavor is...amazing. Just amazing. Primal and essential, rather than sanitized and filtered; its so Nordic one glass makes me want to go sack a monastery. Finish is long and aromatic. Brilliant.
