Die Malzsüße ist recht angenehm aber die Fruchtkomponente kommt etwas zu kurz. Alles in allem viel zu aromatisch und etwas zu fasslastig - 08.04.2017

N- BIscuity creaminess with pine and aromatic bamboo scents. Fresh and clean morning dew.

P- Mineral note and strength provides a rich coating, lifted pungent ginger give a fine balance character to the floral malt.

F- Medium length, dusting powder and chili hot. Crisp.

Nose

Jolie fraîcheur pour ce nez dominé par le citron et les pommes vertes. Vanille, odeurs de céréales miellées et agrémentées de fruits au sirop ( pêches ), arômes végétaux ( fleurs des champs, foin, eucalyptus ) leur tiennent compagnie avec un bonheur certain.

Taste

Surprise!. La bouche est plus suave qu'envisagée, reprenant l'esprit du nez : notes fruitées et herbacées donc, avec un peu plus d'épices ( poivre ), un poil d'anis, et une sorte d'amertume effervescente ( de la bière blonde? ) sous-jacente.

Finish

De longueur moyenne, sur une finition maltée et herbacée et une touche de café au lait. Un riff de fumée âpre ou un rêve éveillé?.

Comments

Une entrée de gamme comme on en souhaiterait plus souvent.
