Nez frais marc et poire. Bouche fruits verts, vanille, pointe d’amertume. Finale courte et sucrée. Le nez est meilleur que la bouche, moyen.

Pale gold
Nose

A fresh and fruity nose with apple candy, lime and vanilla. Some freshly cut grass and malt, as well as very gentle spices.

Taste

Apple, pear, vanilla, oak and light spices. Some straight alcohol like in vodka despite its low ABV.

Finish

Vanilla, pear, apple, caramel and a whiff of smoke.

Comments

Tasting note from a miniature. I like the nose but it doesn't have enough body to keep up with that.

Nose

Le nez est très agréable, très frais, très expressif, bien que très simple : fruits verts, poire fraîche, vanille. 

Taste

Douce, sucrée, des fruits verts et jaunes. Une pointe d'amertume. 

Finish

Ultra courte, fraîche, toujours sur la vanille et les fruits verts. 

Comments

frais, sympa mais sans plus.
