Tasting Notes
Robert KarlssonA crisp, a little salty?, vanillaish nose. Then mandarins, hints of oranges. A little malty sweetness too. Tastewise still crisp, initially mostly on malt. The (slight) vanilla and fruits arrive in the aftertaste. I like the development this one gives. A little on the thin side.
Rich Howardon the nose, ripe pear, honey and heather, vanilla and red apple (not tart). plenty of apple on the reduced palate, light banana and some field grasses, slightly sour herbal note on the finish. [tasted blind for the 2010 Awards]
