Member Ratings and Notes

Nose:  Very nice nose, a corn syrupy sweetness with dried fruit, followed by just a touch of spice (rye?)
Palate:  Gentle spice (again, tastes like rye), picks up sweetness as it goes down.  Nicely balanced.
Finish:  Fruity and spicy.

I was floored that this was a wheater.  I detected a fair amoung of rye-like spiciness.  Interesting and well balanced.

N: Slightly sharp, soft grains. Slightly sweet. Light hints of marshmallow. Slightly tannic.

 

P: Medium thick, sweet but not overly so. Heavy maple syrup, light toffee. Faint cherries in the background. Some gentle grains.

 

F: Black tea, apples, gentle grains and light wood. A mild red wine quantity as the finish holds.

 

Unremarkable. Easy drining and gentle but nothing special.
