Nose is a touch of green onion/ganja and then an explosion of citrus fruit namely grapefruit and orange. There are some tropical elements as well: papaya and mango come to mind.
Loads of tropical and citrus fruit on the palate: pineapple, mango, grapefruit rind. Bitterness is pretty firm for the style but not overdone. Good length with lingering citrus peel. Juicy indeed.
Very well executed example of the style. Loads of fruit, not too bitter, great mouthfeel, and long palate. — 3 days ago
Nose is black cherries, top soil, chocolate, maybe a touch of black pepper. Alcohol is a touch hot and noticable.
Palate has lots of ripe black cherry and blackberry with medium low acidity and medium, well integrated tannins. Touch of chocolate on the finish.
Fairly simple wine, but the fruit is quite tasty and overall it's pretty drinkable. — 19 days ago
Nose is black cherry, plum, thyme, lavender, black pepper, and a touch of smoke. Pretty complex and inviting.
Palate opens with those black cherry/kirsch notes and then transitions to dried green herbs and medium acidity. Tannins are smooth and lend just enough dryness to keep it balanced. Good length with lingering plum skin.
Great little Rhone red with delicious approachable fruit and some nice spice subtlety. Where others at this price point (€11!) are austere or overly simple, this one delivers on deliciousness and complexity. The overall structure makes it quite drinkable too. — a month ago
Nose is cocoa powder, roasted almonds, caramel, chicory, and anise. Quite complex.
On the palate: creamed coffee, roasted nuts, and mild, nutty bitternes with a slight underlying acidity. Fairly light body.
A quaffer for sure, but one with a lot of sweet, delicious, complex malt character. Well brewed stuff. — 3 days ago
Piney, resiny notes on the nose. Bit of citrus reminiscent of a creamsicle.
Palate is all about the hops with orange, grapefruit, and pine. Good dose of firm, slightly earthy, resiny bitterness that accentuates the already dry palate.
Bit of a throwback with the old school hop flavors and firm bitterness. Very drinkable with the lighter malt base and high attenuation. Nice stuff. — 8 days ago
Nose has plum, licorice, violet, gravel, and asphalt.
Palate opens with some blackberry and black cherry, lacks a bit of a mid palate and closes with plum skin, gravely minerality, and a touch of oak. Tannins are fairly course and pronounced.
Simple mencia blend. Lacking a bit of acidity for my taste, but solid overall with grippy tannins. — 25 days ago
Aroma is petrol, almond, lemon peel, grapefruit and sea breeze minerality. Very pretty.
Acidity really hits you off the bat. Lots of lemons and limes mixed with some of those almond paste notes and steely minerality. Really dry and refreshing.
I really love the razor acidity and refreshing nature of this wine. Perfect on a hot day by its own or with seafood or salad. — a month ago
Nose is green apple, lemon peel, bubble gum and some autolytic biscuity notes.
Palate is reminiscent of lemon gelato. Decent acidity with a touch of green apple with sugar sprinkled on top. A bit of metallic and cherry/apple skin bitterness on the finish which isn't my favorite.
Decent sparkler for the price. Nice fruit, but the finish is a bit austere to make it really drinkable for me. — 8 days ago
Nose is a bit funky. Smells like there might be some brett and/or VA. Besides that there is some plum, dried basil, and menthol? A bit awkward.
Palate has some plum and mint perhaps with medium acidity and medium tannin. A bit bitter on the finish.
Interesting nose and simple palate. Nice but not particularly memorable. — 11 days ago
Beautiful nose of lemons, white grapefruit, white floral elements, and some black pepper and clove.
Lots of delicious fruits open the palate: apricot, peach, orange peel with a soft hay like maltiness. Nice moderate, citrus fruit acidity carries the mid palate with some lingering mild bitterness reminiscent of citrus pith and clove. Soft carbonation gives a nice fluffy mouthfeel.
Beautiful saison with excellent fruit/spice balance. The delicious flavors, dryness, and mild bitterness make this dangerously drinkable at 6.1%. — a month ago
