Cruz Blanca Brewery Vidamiga

What the brewers say

“Aged 16 months in French oak puncheons and finished with dried black lime.”

What our panel thought

“A very inviting nose nicely balances sour bread and citrus, and the flavor is a perfect harmony of sweet and sour raw bread dough with a firm but restrained earthy citrus finish. Earthy lime notes with hints of ginger and mint in the aroma give way to a flavor profile that adds a hint of salinity and smokiness to the mojito-like lime and ginger notes. A touch of pine-like bitterness coupled with a bright acidity carries through into the finish.”

What our editors thought

“Energetic and exuberant gin-like nose with a touch of juniper and squeeze of lime over a bubbly botanical base with a bit of Cointreau. The sip explores a broader range of fruit and herbs, with notes of orange, lime, fortified white wine, almond, and mint. The acidity is thoroughly supported. Concise yet rich and enveloping, punchy yet never too loud.”
