Member Ratings and Notes
Nose:  Sweet and again with that soy sauce note.
Palate:  Corn sweetness with plenty of oak.
Finish:  Clean and dry.

Nicely balanced.

N: Sweet spice, cherries, oak. Light toffee underneath it as a bed with soft grains. Slight cinnamon and nutmeg. Some grain on the nose after a while.


P: Moderate mouthfeel, slightly bitter, warm with pepper and oak, faint sweetness - a trace of maple syrup. Wheat is quite clear after a while on the initial palate. Some cherry as well.
F: Warm, slightly must and dusty. A little earthy. Some apple and cherry faintly present; wood as well.
A little strong and harsh, the bitterness and dustiness kind of knock this one out of enjoyability for me.
