3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a red hued gold with a slight haze. Moderately strong aromas of cotton candy, toffee, bubblegum and hints of a farmhouse/blue cheese character to ground it. Flavours bring the blue cheese notes to the fore with freshly picked apples, honey, and wisps of smoke playing strong support. Full bodied with a carbonation that makes a strong first impression before withering away.
