Perfumey, even shampooey, honey. Restrained Seville orange moderating very held back Dupont yeast. Not a hot enough fermentation? Good fun nonetheless. Taste amplifies the curaçao. Coriander is not listed, but there is that peppery-bitter vibe. Nice.

Retains some sweet syrupy notes. The body is not yet watery, or oxidized, except for the tiniest inkling of sherry. Rotting apples in the cellar, cola spilled on the floor. Cocktail cherries in balsamico. Stunning tail of over-aged red wine beauty.

Raspberry sweetened with slightly artificial strawberry. Blackcurrant coating. Taste is nicely balanced, softly tart berriness. Hard to come up with much else. Transparent, clean, unsurprising. Lagom.

Pineapple, mango and apricot in a dense frontal attack, hovering above it something like opening the fuel lid of a car running on coconut and orange rind. Taste has great balance of pith, morphing into moderate burn, versus meek tangerine and subtle oat.

Phenols flirting with danger. Clove galore and also nail polish (but not quite unpleasantly) up front. Underlying deep fried banana. The taste is dry in a pithy way, and the clove takes on a corianderish hue. Feels like a bitter wit. Bier, that is.
