ALLOVATE (2476) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 25, 2014
Cellar temperature and into a shallow chalice. Brilliant, burnished amber with what was honestky a single bubble to rise to atmosphere. Head is lofty off the pour but fades rapidly to a thin sheet of white with good lace. Aroma is floral, perfumy, zesty and full of fruity, vinous notes with a heated, boozy kick. Similar to the aroma is the palate. Dominantly floral with a pronounced rose water note. Quite heated with medicinal notes in the warming finish. Lasting perfume. Light, straw malts, a hint of lemon and honey. Easily quaffable but plain weird to the palate. Not seriously bad, not good!! (50cL, no date stamp, The Liquor Shed, Jandakot)
