les premières notes: fruitée (sucre) et alcool. Amertume en fin de bouche. A l’aveugle et sans le savoir, c’est difficile de trouver le côté résineux/sapin.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle at Churchkey, tasted side by side with the Noix. This one had maybe a bit of pine aroma if I use my imagination, but the taste is green apple skins. Interesting.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sweet malty nose, some caramel and a definite citrus/resinous note which I guess is fir mandrin. Lightly tart, lightly sweet taste, light acetic acid, but it’s very mild. Finishes with a good dose of citrus. Quite nice. Glad I didn’t get a bottle from the prior batch.
