3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
No dead supermarket fizz this: pops with a distinctly ’conditioned’ gush onto the kitchen tiles. Pours clear bronze with a narrow white collar. Mellow gelatinous Haribo aroma suggesting orange, blackcurrant and strawberry. Soft, slightly saline mellow fruit flavour with hints of grenadine, strawberry and orange chew. Gently smoked nut afters with a wisp of chocolate. Good.
