The initial nose suggested to us bananas, baked in brown sugar and drenched in caramel sauce. Then eaten next to a burning hospital! It continued to open up with smoky BBQ sauce, charcoal embers and sticky natural tar extracts. A lot of fun, we agreed. Water brought out funny notes of fermenting strawberry and pickled cherries. Sour Belgian farmhouse ales and overripe banana wrapped in bandages. The palate opened with brown bread, medicines, gauze, salted toffee, coffee and something like seawater mixed with bacon jam! Bonkers stuff! Reduction softened things and brought lightly smoked olive oil, birch beer, mineral oil and black olive bread.
