Member Ratings and Notes
The nose has malt with fruit syrup.  The palate on this is just luscious:  sweet and malty in good balance with grape notes, Sauternes.  It's light and crisp yet full bodied.  The finish picks up the malt.  Almost an A. 
N:  White wine initially, then more grassy with some mineral aspects.
P: Nice and punchy dry profile, fruity and kind of tart at the same time (a good tart).
F: A long clean numbing burn with a trace of sweetness.
This would be pretty dull at 43% but at nearly 60% its got enough going on to hold my interest.
