Cupping Evaluation

Cupping Details

The aroma is floral and sweet, with tropical citrus and marzipan. The body is soft and smooth, rolling over the palate with a medium weight. There is an understated intensity to the acid, with the flavor of honeycrisp apple and raspberry. The sweetness is average in intensity, though often overpowered by the bitter elements. Caramelized brown sugar, bittersweet chocolate, and English walnut round out the flavor experience. The finish is slightly dry, with nuances of maple and fresh fruit.

Brewing Evaluation

Brewing Details

Floral aromas and fresh, sweet bread fill the nose. The body is light to medium in weight with a chocolatey texture that fills the mouth. Fruit notes of grape and green apple come through on the sides of the tongue with a relatively low intensity. Semisweet chocolate and dry red wine show as understated sweetness, with an earthy finish of dry peanut and parchment.
