  • Mouthfeel: Full-bodied with low carbonation, the mouthfeel is very thick, sticky, and velvety smooth with a dry, slightly sweet and boozy finish.

Overall pairing: The heavy-duty hard rocking tracks of Mothers Army and the heavy-duty and silky characteristics of Mother Earth's Four Seasons Of Mother Earth: Summer are a perfect pairing of depth, artistic vision, and power!
Cheers and hails!!
