Thanks to a joyful gastro-enteritis I am reasonable enough to stick to an alcohol free beverage. But just this time! To be more specific: grape juice! White Grape Juice from the PRC. I hope it won’t be like my last rice wine adventure ;-)
The colour was bright yellow-greenish and the nose impressed me very straight fruitful grape’y fragrances, some pretty intensive jasmine tea and some musty tendencies, which weren't, ahh well whatever ... . The taste was rather strong and direct. Very grape’y again. Unfortunately I can’t tell you which kind of grapes were used. My knowledge of Hànzi is limited to expressions like: wine, whiskey, painkillers and toilet facility indications. Beside the grape’y tendencies I even tasted traces of white flowers, maybe some very mild green tea and an overall fresh and “not too thin” impression. Surely not faceless either. To be honest I was very happy about the fact that this Chinese beverage wasn’t that frightfully sweet like quite a lot of comparable examples :-). One very big minus though, too many E Numbers (a European Food Additive Standard). Drinkable stuff!
