4.49/5  rDev +3%

Served on a snowy evening with dinner from 750ml generic Sante Label with Noona's Blend #5 sticker affixed

A hazy pale straw with great carbonation, no gusher this time. Little head dissipates quickly. The first odor is funk, cheese funk of a Sauvignon Blanc followed by tart apple skin and apricot. Flavor is just a hint of sweet with pepper and tart dry white grape mustiness. Prickly carbonation and medium mouthfeel, brings about that Pavlovian dog response of mouth watering after each sip. Exceptional, reminds me of Civil Disobedience #6. Looks like SARA is one ahead of the game.

Cheers!
