UPDATED: AUG 15, 2017 Flot rødbrun farve. Aroma af rosinsødme. Sur og sød på tungen. Lidt kvalm i længden. Savner mere fad i smagen.

IslandHaole (1291) - Misawa, JAPAN - JUL 28, 2017
Dark brown with ruby highlights, beige head. Nice aroma, hints of sour cherries, balsamic vinegar, shoyu, cola. Tart, acidic, not as sweet or as complex as the aroma. I’m getting more of the oak as it warms, Leaves a lightly sweet residue on the lips. A bit thin bodied. Interesting but not one I’d be in a rush to have again.

Bottle from World Market in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is mild banana peppers, oak, balsamic vinegar. Taste is mild with some acid and oak showing through. Mild vinegar. Pretty good but not super complex.
