NOTES: 
Eyeballs to a glistening of clarity pale yellow. Reminiscent of #EEEA62 maybe, or the shade found on an Indian 20-rupee note. Where was I? Oh. Noses to light bits of sweet grass and floral vibes. Sips to the tune of the aroma; far-away orange blossom honey, dandelion petals. 

There's some raw oak bracing on the slurp w/ a surprising hint of white pepper. More oily than astringent and lightly/softly brightly. Soft thin legs. Finish is a quite refreshing bit of citrus. Delicately complex and understated. Pretty af, much like myself. Much like myself.

FINAL GRADE: A-
A 90-100 B 80-89 C 70-79 D 60-69 F 0-59
