The dewatering shots are very nice.

@Paul- Have you ever tasted a Russula or a Lactarius that was acrid? How about Pepper Spray?

It is more of a spicy feeling than a spicy flavor. It is hard to explain, but it was like a sensation.

@Britney- Thank you so much!

Great photos

“Odd-feeling” you say?

I’m interested in this “odd-feeling”. Was it metallic like chewing aluminum foil or alternatively some wines can have a metallic like taste? Or was it numbing or some other effect?

I tasted the water….

And I was surprised it was acrid, reminding of tasting L. turpis. Mildly spicy and ‘odd-feeling’ for about 30 seconds, leaving an odd after-taste.
