Finn (4402) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 28, 2014
Flaske 0,33l fra Vinmonopolet, bestillingsutvalget. Batch 1. Delt med Rune under rateseanse på Nerstranda 27 Mai 14. Skittengul. 0 skum. God aroma - som nok er alkoholsødmen. Smaken er tørre epler. Skarpt syrlig. Alkoholen kommer igjen som mandler. En innholdsrik drikk - om enn noe uvant.
