Member Ratings and Notes
Sku
 

Nose:  Malt, hay, water brings out oolong tea note.

 

Palate:  Sweet and malty with some white wine.

 

Finish:  Syrupy and malty.

 

This one takes water well, bringing out both sweet and funky notes.

Fuji
 

N: Sweetness from stewed grape, nectarine, white wine, raisin and vanilla. There are floral qualities as well. Some weirder chalky and metallic notes linger.


P: Crisp on the palate. Fresh cut fruit: grape, white nectarine, kiwi, tangerine and kumquat. Good texture. Dry woodiness and hints of sherry sweetness.

 

F: Green limes and fudge

Pretty much exactly what you'd expect, but in a great way, from a crotch-kicking lowlander. Moderately-sweet with a burst of honey and mixed mild spices, long fade. Holds up sip after sip and takes water well. Really excels at what it does.
Ries
 

n: floral malt and red jam/cherry nose. Light cinnamon and vanilla and more of the dried red fruits.

 

t: very bright and sweet fruit forward. Green grapes, heavy oak, and fresh cinnamon, quite malty and hot. Hints of citrus.

 

With water it become more sugary sweet (powdered sugar). 

A bit too refined and light for my palatte.
