COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Nephilium (1453) - Ohio, USA - JUL 5, 2007
Poured into a goblet. Pours a clear straw, with a big fluffy white head that fades down to about an eighth of an inch. The aroma is sour apples, a touch of lemon, and a back end of dust. Nice sour flavor, with apples and lemons being the most noticeable. Moderately long finish, very crisp mouthfeel. Definitely something I want to pick up some more of, and see how it ages.

cpetrone84 (1588) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 28, 2015
Pour is slightly hazed golden yellow with a tight white head. Nose has a light saltiness, moderate mineral presence, faint lime juice and lemon. Flavor is very minerally up front bordering on sulfur, juicy lemon and citric acid, fairly acidic finish. Moderate to soft carb, light delicate body.

tfredvik (1277) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 20, 2015
Pours a slightly hazy pale amber to golden body. The white head is long-lived and never gets smaller than a thin layer. Crisp, dry, slightly funky and strong aroma of sparkling (white) wine, tart fruits, apples and hints of oak and fermented fruits in the back. Quite strong flavour of sparkling wine and acidic and tart fruits, with wood, fermented apples, citrus and faint barnyard in the back. Light, very dry and lively carbonated. Very nice.
[37.5 cl bottle, enjoyed 3.5 years after bottling, from Vinmonopolet Vika, Oslo]

sonotono (55) - torino, ITALY - MAR 19, 2015
COlore dorato torbido, schiuma esagerata. Odore acido, fruttatissimo, pungente, ricorda lo spumante. Sapore acido, molto frizzante, tipo spumante, secco, fruttato. Non è il mio genere preferito.
