Classic wooden roller coaster jolts out of the gate & rumbles along the tracks building strength on every creak & clatter, well away from the hyper-smooth pneumatic whoosh of the new metal scream machines.

Flavor 45.4 / 50
gets the hook right on a fruit-a-morphosis in rapid progression & measured sweetness; obvious raisin catches air & just rips it on the straightaway midsection bracketed by melonic convergence w/ nectarine-honey dew-drops up front & a surge outback of apricot bumps up the volume to bend & bank in the stem winder ending, all held up by a chocolate chain lift along vanilla-oak frame; soft bouquet the after length
Quality 17.1 / 20
Inner strength generates a gutsy boisterous ride without being hyper-enthusiastic. Trace astringent & charred but very balanced ratios overall.
