750ml bottle pours a murky yellow with some soft, white head. Nose has a lot of lime and ginger, some straw, some wood, a little buttery oak, some white grape, lemongrass. Flavor has more of the ginger, but itís not biting or harsh, lemongrass, straw, lime, white grape, mild hints of vanilla, some yogurt. Medium bodied, refreshing finish. Very nice.

Bottle at De Garde. Pours a bright yellow color with a medium white head. A big fruity nose, funky, oak. Lots of citrus elements that are really ginger. The flavor is an oaky sour base with robust ginger, something seemed smoky to me almost. Quite interesting.
