Draft at Russian River. Pours clear honey-gold; thin white head, fantastic lacing. Nose is persimmon, cream, baking poweder biscuits, so lifted, so pretty, lots of grapefruit coming through here as well, obviously. Flavours of creamed grapefruit, rosewater, tropical fruit, mineral, cream, and quine. Very dry, and staggeringly pretty. No complaints here!
