3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Bottle, 2009 vintage) Golden colour with foamy, off-white head. Lots of sediment at the bottom of the bottle. Fruity, malty nose with apricots, orange, honey, flowers (jasmine, carnation) and a touch of yeast. Fruity, malty taste with notes of bread, honey, orange, apricots and a gentle spicy/floral bitterness in the finish. Medium body, mainly dry, but with some sweetness coming through towards the end. Well balanced and tasty. Excellent example of the style. Very nice.
