4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
75 cl bottle, ’bbe’ May 10. Light brassy with fine yet thick cloudiness and a vivid head and lace which are still there after an hour (literally). A rich fruit explosion in the nose; it’s hard to say what comes first, grapes or raisins or avocado or banana or fresh fruit cake with oranges... It’s easy to dream on. The taste is based on a mellow, unassertive yet clearly present a kind of honey toffee, upgraded by that rich plethora of fruit and finishing on an uncompromising bitterness that lingers on confidently in the aftertaste. A nice surprise!
