To me, German is not a taste but a feel. Different languages appeal to
different senses, and German is touch; cold clay or thick velvet. It feels
good. :)

French would maybe be fresh clay, pressed between fingers - kinda funny
feeling.

Spanish could be music of violin or an abstract painting with fresh, bright
colors and elegant shapes.

Swedish is fish soup, for all sight, touch and taste. The fish has light
grayish flesh and vegetables are boiled fully soft. Not too much carrot.
Norwegian is the very same soup with some spices you would never expect to
find in fish soup. :)

Exactly!
