Member Ratings and Notes
Fuji
 

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.
