3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Satsuma Red pours blood red with a pink head of foam. The aroma has a fruity wine like character coupled with the sugary spice component I associate with sweet potatoes.
Medium bodied with a rich silky mouthfeel. The flavor is Sweet somewhat artificial seeming sweet potato, fruity, some diacetyl but it is weirdly well integrated And my big takeaway is fruity cotton candyish. It’s alright but the discontinued purple was the real winner.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Initial aroma is fruity, red wine, rich and some sweet potato. Taste is fruity to start with, quite low carb. Sweet potato at the end. Quite different and quite nice, but it’s quite heavy going.
