(sample bottle best before Feb/19) Clear, rust orange with very short live white head and a limited number of small rising bubbles.
Zesty citrus – particularly orange, with herbs and quinine.
Bittersweet with a light effervescence. Orange and grapefruit with quinine herbal rooty bitterness, vanilla and light citric acidity.
Long bitter finish. Zesty citrus with lingering bitterness.
Once you become accustomed to Crodino’s bitter sweetness, its citrus flavour is very appealing with complex herbal and rooty bitterness, quinine and faint vanilla. All it lacks is alcohol!
