2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
355ml bottle (Stones, Helsinki)
Peach, lychee, and alas carbonic acid aroma, sweet, supersweet even, sticky sugariness, meringue. Just way too freaking sweet. Caramel. Palate way too fizzy. After swirling the fizz out a bit, it’s way too watery. Simple sweet grains, nothing particularly exciting. Way too much carbonic acid. Decentish, but meh.
