4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Small pour thanks to Lushawn and his woman winnning a bottle and sharing it on the spot! Appearance is a dark golden color and the nose is light fruit, floral, some yeast and subtle funk. Taste is a refreshing mix of white wine--gewurztraminer and sauv blanc--, lemon, pear, and grass with a touch of sour. Medium body with medium carbonation. Finish on the dryer side. Reminded me a bit of Avery’s Sui Generis in some regards.
