Ultimate Beverage Challenge 92 points - (Great Value,Tried & True Award)- Honey/harvest gold color. Frontline aromas are vibrant, animated, juicy, fruity, semisweet, raisiny, pruny, but underneath that is a dry layer of malt. Taste-wise, the dominant flavor is the dried fruit aspect, which is sherried, honeyed, roasted, baked, charred. Aftertaste reflects the midpalate, adding a trace of flowers. (Mar 2015)
