Tons of fruit on the nose as candied orange peel, pineapple, and mango blend with honey and caramel malt in the aroma. On the tongue, the fruity aspects of the nose present markedly sweeter on the front end. By mid-palate, a much more herbal quality takes over, resinous and a bit sticky as bitter grasses dry the mouth ahead of an increasingly prevalent alcohol kick. Pithy citrus peel on the finish. A little rough around the edges, but overall quite enjoyable.
