Tap at Blind Tiger for the SN event. Others were hatin’ but I thought this was a very solid wit. It’s a tough style to make but I feel like they nailed it. Had a very pleasant, smooth vanilla kind of character to it, a rich body with no sharp notes, and a definite watermelon note throughout that drove both the complexity and flavor of this badboy home. Went down easy, despite a fairly significant body. The biggest issue with this was that it was rather ugly, being mostly filtered and having little head. Still, one of my favorite wits to date. Sierra Nevada really nails these low grav styles.
