Member Ratings and Notes
Oranges, oak, a little smoke.  Finishes dry and a bit raw (young, burning).
Nose of very light malt and caramel, cereals. Palate is mildly sweet and mildly bubblegummy-fruity, with the caramels from the nose, but not much malt.  Kinda nice. Finish continues the theme at length, getting a tinge boozy, with a little fennel appearing on some sips. Not search-outable but entirely fine.
