Weird and wild, murky fruit juice. I think the store had trouble selling this (we’re on Long Island this week) and I probably shouldn’t be drinking a 4 year old vintage. Fruit is wild and brambly mixed berries, and it’s sorta tastes like some are underripe and green, some are to the point of rot. I like the spirit and have enjoyed La Clarine’s other cuvées so I think this is just a couple years too late. That all being said, it’s still a pretty enjoyable chilled chugger.

Drinking really well right now. Fresh, juicy and bright with layers of flavor and aroma.
