Tasting notes
Taster   Phoebe Calver
Nose: Like afternoon tea on a summer’s day: honey granola, vanilla icing, white chocolate macaroons and a lovely zingy hit of lemon tart.
Palate: Things heat up on the palate, but the fresh vanilla and cooling white chocolate are still there with more of that lemon zing. Ginger spice and some syrupy apricots.
Finish: Malty and hot.
Comment: Although the ABV really does heat things up, there is plenty of character and intrigue to be enjoyed.
Taster   Christopher Coates
Nose: Tart citrus and berries: pomelo, lime and raspberry. Then under-ripe banana, caramel biscuits and malted milk. A touch of chicory, then milk chocolate sauce and strawberry jam. Vanilla.
Palate: Medium bodied. Fizzy limeade, lemon lollypops with sherbet centres and tart green apple. Every sour sweet you ever tried as a child. An assault of citrus zing.
Finish: Medium-long. The citrus clings but fades to a tobacco note.
Comment: I love the tart flavours, but the youthful character and alcoholic strength are somewhat distracting.
