Member Ratings and Notes
Nose of green apples, and not just because this looks kinda green. They're definitely in there of the Jolly Rancher variety. Pinot Grigio behind that. Grassy stuff.

Palate is rally nice and kinda sweet, appley and juicy. Table crackers. I could really drink a lot of this… and I think I will! Finish gets a tinge metallic in very end, with tannins that grip mildly.

Lighter and rather refreshing. I'm a pretty big fan.  B+/A-

Nose:  Fruity with pears, fruit cocktail and perfume.

Palate:  sweet and malty.

Finish:  Malt


Good, straightforward stuff. 


N: Candied gummy sweetness, herbal, vegetal, and perfumed

P: Green fruits and some honey and salt


n:  Stunning.  Apricot and flower fields


p:  Decent, smooth and generically fruity.  Bad funk on the finish ruins it.
