3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
January 12, 2016. Bottle at home.
Clear golden with a small fizzy and quickly dissipating white head. Aroma is light sweet juicy apples, some tart green apples, sulphur, a touch of barnyard and wood. Taste is tart, dry and light sweet. Finish is quite dry with a light woody note, quite tart with a prominent apple skin astringency. Light bodied, fizzy small bubble carbonation, dry finish.
Once it breaths the sulphur fades away and the tart and juicy apples with a touch of funk takes over. Very nice.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle bought @ Systembolaget. Pours sparkling golden with a fizzy white head that quickly dissipates without leaving any trace in the glass. Smell is fruity and tiny funky with tar apples, pineapple, star fruit, codweb, hay, dry soil, barnyard, paper and lemon peal. Taste is tiny sweet, sour, fruity and tiny funky. Mouthfeel is sparkling, dry, tart, slightly fruit skin astringent and light bodied. Finish is sour with tart apples, peaches, star fruit, dry soil, minerals, paper and lemon peal. Quite liked this one. Heavy tropical fruits and of course apples. Only some slight paper smell and taste that drags it down slightly but that gets better after some aerating.
