Cloudy golden yellow color. Aromas and flavors of durian, jasmine rice, hoisin-glazed apricot, Belgian endive, chevre, and oyster sauce with a supple, vibrant, spritzy, dry light body and a tingling, captivating, medium-length finish with overtones of sea salt finish. A funky, pungent fruit cider that offers a distinctive food pairing with great affinity for East Asian cuisines.
