Nose: tangy filtered apple juice. (lvl-4)-pungency

Attack: thicker viscosity, sharp crisp micro-tingly bite, background acidity

Mid-palate: soft sour-tangy, green apple, hints of elderflower, bright numbing acidity, (lvl-4-sweetness)

Finish: thickened throat saliva, green apple tartness, residual dissipating acidity.

Summary: Very good structure, pretty basic apple flavour but with subtle floral nuances. No real bitterness from the hops though.
