Initial September 2013 tasting (Rating = B-):
Visual: Simple and effect clean-looking label, I like it. Pours deep golden yellow with zero head and zero activity, rather unappealing.
Nose: vanilla-woody and tangy apples (7/10-aromatic strength)
Attack: sharp crispness
Mid-palate: rich tangy, 7/10-sweetness (MAIN) vanilla, woodiness, red apples, (HINT) barnyard, green apple
Finish: medium tartness, fruity sweet, mild saliva thickness, crisp apple finish.
Summary: Major vanilla woodness balanced with clean tart, sweet and tangy apple flavour. Very nice although I wish it was more carbonated.
February 13, 2016 tasting notes:
Visual: Pours deep yellow orange with no head, several large bubbles clinging to the glass, some bubbles reaching the surface.
Nose: woody oak, vanilla, mild funk, tangy acidic apple wine. (lvl-6)-pungency
Attack: crisp-low micro tingly, tangy light bitter
Mid-palate: (lvl-5)-sweetness, tangy-acidic, (MAIN flavours): red & green apple, white grape juice, apple cider vinegar, wet oak
Finish: off-dry, vanilla & clean oaked woody exhale, gum-sticky tartness.
Summary: Big oak and fruity clean flavours with a strong vanilla presence. This time around I can appreciate more the enticing wood flavour that keeps you sipping. I actually don’t mind the low CO2.
