    Viewing Eyes: light straw color

    Smell Nose: The smoked bacon fried in oil is very charming, a little sterilized water, vanilla ice cream, cream & frozen butter blocks, green apple, the sweet fragrance of green mango in a flash, fruit jelly, Masanori race, quite For a stretched oily feel, grapefruit peel, acetic acid, a little bit of fermented sourness

    Taste Palate: fresh and soft, it is finally not a sharp air freshener, it is rare. Green apple, green tea, lemonade, citron tea, not too sweet, milky, a little lime, raw bacon, rock
