n:  Mead, plant stalks

 

p: hotter than usual for a Rosebank.  Less sweet than usual. Black pepper, floral.  Finish is stingy rather than flavorful.

 
Fuji
 

N:Light, sweet and tart nose.  Dominated by corn and maltiness followed by cut hay and vegetation.

P: Light and dry.  This starts off very tangy with lots of green fruits.  A nutty component emerges (walnuts and almonds) with white pepper.  But alot of the alcohol spirit overshadows the lighter delicate fruit.

F: Medium finish with bitter greens and a bit of crushed mint

 

This is very tasty and had alot of good things.  But the balance was poor due to the spirity alcohol.  The lighter notes didnt stand a chance against the high abv.  

 

With water:  Green apple jolly ranchers! Nose is much better but the water also highlights the bitter notes which become more grassy and waxy.
