3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Extreme earthy strawberry nose.
Colored like cloudy cherry juice, low head.
Strawberries and other berry notes - slightly sour.
Is it a fault or is it from the deep cellars? Either way i like it.
Relatively light body, mellow moutfeel.
