Review and Tasting


Sampled on 15/12/2012

Appearance:

(sample best before 22-Dec-12) Cloudy, reddy pink.

Aroma:

Tropical fruit, but reminiscent of confected/pasteurised fruit rather than fresh.

Taste:

Slightly sweet but with balancing tartness, thin rather than cloying. Intense fruit flavours with orange zest, passion fruit and grape juice. Sensation of peppery alcohol bite is pronounced considering its mere 12% alcohol content.

Aftertaste:

Lingering citric acid, cranberry and processed mixed fruit juice. Will not appeal to sophisticated palates but this is not trying to be a sophisticated product. Those just of l.d.a. need apply.
