Bop
Light, grassy, pleasant; deep inhale is sharp
Firm
Very sharp for a “lowland”; seems dark like an ale
Short taste but sharpness on tongue
Like a benzene ring, nature likes to be in equilibrium…hence entropy

Apple, iodine, grassy
Weak and small

Spring flowers, sweet cherries
Dry and full
Hot esters, soapy
heat dissapates to lingering sweetness
Water added mellowed it out. But still not a buyer.
