clear white grape juice appearance. clean pear / apple-focused nose with light touches of banana bubble gum. slick, oily, medium-light body. lingering warmth from alcohol with medium-low acid. slightly truffle-like as it breathes.
Full sweet rice aroma. Appearance is clear, slightly yellow. The taste was underwhelming at first, but then I picked up some subtle sweetness here. Quite smooth. Ernest (7747) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 22, 2012
Bottle. No head (still). Body is nearly colorless (faint hint of yellow). Aroma is notes of honeydew melon, oak, cedar, orange flowers, lemon zest, honey, grain/rice, alcohol. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly to moderately acidic. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Medium body, watery/silky texture, no carbonation, lightly to moderately alcoholic, lightly astringent.
Ok, now this I like. The aroma is alive with floral and fruity notes, quite attractive. Pretty clean and well balanced in the mouth...a bit on the sweet side but plenty of acidity. Quite good, especially in the nose. ChainGangGuy (4908) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - JAN 12, 2012
Appearance: Nearly colorless, but there is a small, small hint of yellow.
Smell: Huh. This one smells like those powder packets from those cheap, store-brand macaroni and cheese boxes but with some ethanol wafts.
Taste: Nil sweetness with an instant twinge of alcoholic heat and that underlying cheese powder taste.
Mouthfeel: Body remains light.
Overall: Do I have bats in the belfry? Is it just me on this cheese thing??
