12.7 oz corked and caged bottle, tulip

A – Heavy, dark orange to slightly amber, some effervescent bubbles. About 2-3 inches of white foam head, moderate retention lasting a minute or so. About a cm of froth remains on top.

S – Intense peppery notes, some alcohol warmth on the initial sniff. Some bubble gum and orange peel. Sweetness comes in late.

T – Spicy, slightly fruity, some darker citrus tones. Mild earthy, herbal flavors in the background, suggesting a farm when the soil’s been freshly tilled.

M – Seems thin at first, but some effervescence on the swallow and a mild acidic bite comes through. Light residual sweetness.

O – There’s nothing particularly wrong here, just nothing that really stands out either. Enjoyable, but I won’t be able to tell you much about it six months from now.
