Fuji
 

N: Baby powder, dried fruit, kiwi, pineapple, green apple skin, lime, fudge, purple flowers, biscuits and sour grapes. There's a slight metallic tinge to the nose.

 

P: Nice consistency and good maltiness. A mixed fruit bowl (brown and sour tangy fruits).

 

F: Spicy cracked white pepper and licorice.

 

It mellows out with water but losses the vibrant edgey notes I enjoy so much.  I prefer it w/o water.
