Member Ratings and Notes

N: Crushed mints, talcum powder, white peppers, citrus and gummy bears


P: Bursts of sour green jolly ranchers, tangerines and nice malt.  Starts of sticky and viscous but dries out


F: Dark chocolate and lime finish


This runs a tad hot and a little water helped.  Lemon custard, grass and earthy notes emerged with water.  But a slight metallic dusty note  was not welcome.  Theres a good amount happening with this.  B+/A-


Nose:  Light nose with some nice fruit notes.

Palate:  Black cherry soda including the carbonated mouthfeel, malty notes emerge as the fruit recedes.  Water brings out the maltiness.

Finish:  Sweet and a bit tangy - craisins.



Super fruity nose, peachy, with coconut and other tropical stuff. Palate is initially an amaing burst of peach and floral aspects -- I wrote "awesomeness." But then it kinda falls off, I'm not sure if that's a fast oxidation or palate acclimation, but it's still great and something I'd want to own.


n: faintly springtime


p:  Condensed flower.  Really good.  Spearmint syrup.  Not a profile that is done well very often. Kudos.
