    SMWS Tasting Notes

    Colour: Sunset gold orange glow

    Flavour Profile: Spicy & sweet

    On the one hand the aroma neat was creamy like butterscotch
    sauce, coconut milk or rice pudding with strawberry jam, on the other hand
    there was a distinct pleasant sour smell of a cherry Lambic beer milkshake or
    an apple-sour cream crumb pie. The taste neat was initially lip puckering
    bitter like a grapefruit but then developed quickly into a rich, creamy and
    spicy Thai curry noodle soup. Diluted, the scent was more like a sweet and sour
    pineapple chicken dish and a Caprese salad with balsamic reduction. On the
    palate, chocolate and chilli panna cotta with glazed orange segments.
