Member Ratings and Notes
Ries
 

n: bit-o-honey bar, toffee, fresh printed cardboard. Spiced frosting animal crackers, and waxy lemon polish. Full of cereal malt and heather with a tease of faint smoke.

 

t: hay and wet green grass with a light sweet side (simple syrup). Bright and brassy with nutmeg spice and a hot finish that goes a little flat after a few sips. Still honeysuckle sweet and grassy with a bit of mouth drying cedar-wood ash at the very end. Monochromatic.

 

low B-. 

 
Fuji
 

N: Bourbon cask sweetness (vanilla, toffee) with rusty metal and eucalyptus wood notes.

 

P: Starts off salty with mixed fruit and used tea leaves.  Herbal grassy stuff.  The hot finish is dry and astringent

 
Sku
 

Nose:  Herbal, mint, floral

Palate: Herbal, vegetal, some sweetness

Finish: Peppery

 
Dan
 
Solid amber. The nose is a little haggard and musty, with plenty of weeds and grass. Very fresh with some lemon. The palate is a little more chalky. Satisfying finish. [7/25/14] 
Adam
 

Sweet, floral, hay, grass, gets mineraly as it opens up. Some unusual but nicely rounded flavors in here. Finish is hot and fairly lengthy.

 

Nice stuff, but something in the finish pushes me away a little more than I'd like. B-/B 

 
Andy
 

n:  Meh.

 

p:  Bit hot and indistinct.  Decent but not special.
