Member Ratings and Notes
N:  light and sweet with honey and caramel notes.
P:  Sweet, then somewhat vegetal and sour
F:  Sweet and yeasty.

Some off notes but decent enough.

N: Dry, spicy. Some wood on the nose. Grain, dry straw.


P: Mouth-coating, dry, with cinnamon and pepper. Bitter, woody, light grain. Orage evident as well.
F: Short, light. Cinnamon and pepper on the palate after the firts wave; vanilla, light fruits. Orange and a hint of cherry.
The dryness could use something to balance it out. It's decent enough but lacking something.
