Nosing: Grüner Apfel Birne Eiche
Mostly fruity with green apple and a touch of pear. There's a hit of oakiness, but nothing intrusive.

Taste: Süße Früchte Orange Malz
Intense flavour. Very sweet, with oranges and other mixed fruit.

Finish:
Medium length but more of a continuation of the palate rather than anything distinct.

Comment:
I wasn't sure about this one initially, but after spending a little time with it it grew on me. Its very well made and the strength is just right at 43%. There's some really good intensity of flavour on show. I'd say its on the upper end of the price range that I would pay for most NAS releases and I'd be much more amenable if it was £40-45 rather than £50. Still, good quality stuff.
