3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared, thanks Raul. Champagne yeast is always a tricky twist, quite liked that one early one with its dry grape edge but spiciness and alcohol heat slowly took over. Interesting one but to be enjoyed in small pouring.

Thanks to jinroh for sharing the bottle!
Poured into a taster showing a finger of clena white foam with well filtered golden honey.

The palate is well carbonated and medium bodied with clean lime and pine notes throughout. Light bitterness on the finish. Nothing out of place but a bit simple.
