3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Wine Authorities in Durham. Pours a rich, deep hazy golden with an Alka-Seltzer carbonation and a soda-like palate, though fuller and richer. Nose of funky apples, some cheese and Band-Aids. A bit of barnyard hay. Taste is sweet and closer to straight apple juice at first with some Band-Aids and hay and a slight lemony acidity coming in and out.
