2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Visual: Simple and effect clean-looking label, I like it. Pours deep golden yellow with zero head and zero activity, rather unappealing.
Nose: oaked-woody and tangy apples (7/10-aromatic strength)
Attack: sharp crispness
Mid-palate: rich tangy, 7/10-sweetness (MAIN) oak, woodiness, red apples, (HINT) barnyard, green apple
Finish: medium tartness, fruity sweet, mild saliva thickness, crisp apple finish.
Summary: Major woodness balanced with clean tart, sweet and tangy apple flavour. Very nice although I wish it was more carbonated.
