Colour: pale to yellow gold
Appearance: thick, quick legs.
This is great. The nose is rather "robust" or manly, without being smoky. It's on the edge of fruity and musky. Overripe apples, raisins (such as in apple pie), musk, a forest on after a summer rain shower, wood and spice (cinnamon).
Full-bodied, assertive, both sweet and acidic. The apple remains on the foreground, now more on apple juice. Then: crumble cake, lemon curd, wood smoke, Dutch "sterrenmunt" tea (mix of fennel, aniseed, liquorice root and mint), and vanilla.
Long, both fruity and spicy with the right amount of wood. It's still a combination of malty (cake), fruity (apple), slightly musky/earthy and herbal (rather than spicy).
