Panel's tasting note: "A sweet fruity aroma of ripe apples or grapes was soon followed by a warm apricot-cranberry sauce, as well as quince and rosewater jelly. Lively, sparkly and fizzy neat with plenty of freshly grated ginger spice, balanced by the sweetness of a Belgium dark chocolate almond praline.
When we added a little water, the scent was more like pieces of cherry soaked in Kirsch whilst on the palate it had turned into a completely different experience. Now thick and creamy like vanilla custard sauce and strawberry blancmange, and in the finish a ‘brioche à tête’ with a rosewater glaze and a sprinkling of crispy freeze-dried raspberries."
Part of the SMWS August of 2019 'Hauf & Hauf' theme, this bottling was paired with a beer that was selected by Calgary SMWS member and beer writer Don Tse. Don selected St. Ambroise Oatmeal Stout, saying "Hints of chocolate are perfect to accompany all these subtle fruits."
