The nose is quite light and soft. There are notes of barley sugar and a soft wood smoke, hints of toasted cereals and cut hay with winter berries and their requisite acidity. There are some hoppy notes with a gristy character and something vaguely vegetal with a caramel sweetness. The palate is a little fuller and richer. There are notes of freshly made fruit salad with esters and a very juicy character. Notes of pineapple, guava, mango and Bartlett pear, hints of apple blossom and winter spice with a fresh hay note and a touch of dried peel. The finish is long and quite fresh with a touch of oaken warmth..
