Chapeau Exotic

12 oz, champagne style, dimpled bottomed bottle. Capped and corked.
Pop on opening is disappointing, suspiciously flat.
Pour gives a golden body with just about ZERO head, retention or lace. Looks dead.
The nose has a strange mixed fruit note with bananas and pineapple apparently present.
The tastes are strangely solvent like (despite the low ABV) and it lingers to give a touch of plastic amongst the pineapple.
I love pineapple but to be honest this is pretty nasty. It has a strong solvent like alcohol presence which is certainly odd and it taste of some kind of estery, chemical lab concoction. It is true that the age of the bottle is suspect, but without dates I feel justified in reviewing it.
Not good at all. Avoid.
