Fashawn (583) - ITALY - FEB 17, 2016
Rosso carico con schiuma bianca, aroma di malto, grano, tanta uva rossa, spezie, leggerissima cannella, riminiscenze di dolcezza. Sapore di Cereali e pane, sulle prime, prima che l’uva, le note vinose, vengano in evidenza accompagnate ancora da qualche spezia dolce. Buona la speziatura, la birra si lascia bere, cremosa, ma non impreziosisce la serata. Buono il calore etilico alla fine, che asciuga la dolcezza. Equilibrata, ma scialba e normale.

lello4ever (632) - ITALY - JAN 2, 2016
Il colore è ambrato tendente al rosso. Schiuma bianca sottile. Aroma di malto, lievito. Al palato dolce, corpo medio e consistenza buona, chiude un pelo secca, speziatura ok. Alcol presente ma non invadente.

mansquito (5208) - Nueva York, New York, USA - DEC 26, 2015
Owl Farm, Brooklyn tap: pours a dull medium brown with an off white head. Aroma is yeast, grapes, something like cake. Taste is lightly bitter and somewhat sweet. Kind of creamy body. Not sure that it was worth the price that I paid alas.

labeerinthum (513) - Milano, ITALY - NOV 25, 2015
On tap @ IBF Pub Edition, Milano. L’intensità olfattiva è normale e la persistenza olfattiva è sufficiente. La schiuma è costituita da bollicine medie. Il liquido è opalescente ed ha frizzantezza da bollicine fini. Il colore è ambrato. Il corpo è pieno. L’amaro è medio, con un punto di acido ed uno di aspro. L’intensità gustativa è normale e la persistenza gustativa è buona. Le sensazioni boccali finali sono quelle di birra impegnativa. Il finale è amarognolo e complesso.

teorn88 (6196) - Out of the EU, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2014
Keg at FOB, Rimini. It pours a murky dark copper/brown color with a minimal bubbly beige head. Aroma is sweet and yeasty, with notes of bubble gum, toffee, plums, dried cherries and wine barrel. Taste is again sweet with notes of caramel, light spices, nutmeg, plums, wine must, figs and dust. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Overall, quite tasty and sweet

sayravai (4708) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 22, 2011
(Bottled, 0.75l, BBE 11/2012) Hazy copper with a smallish, quickly descending head. Toffee-caramely malt, almonds, grapes and orange peel in the nose. Flavor is very caramely, quite sweet, bitter-almondy. Feels like a few degrees less than 8% ABV. Medium body, very easily drinkable. Quite featherweight for a Xmas brew, but clean, balanced and easy to drink.

Wolfbass (1089) - Firenze, ITALY - MAY 27, 2011
Colore ambrato con schiuma bianca che svanisce in fretta. Aroma caramellato e leggermente alcolico. In bocca ha un buon corpo, principalmente dolciastra e finale un pò vinoso e abbastanza secco. Direi una birra molto tradizionale ma fatta, secondo me molto bene.

Ungstrup (34260) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 30, 2011
Bottled at RBESG 2010 Grand Tasting. An unclear golden beer with a lazing orangey head. The aroma has notes of fruits, malt, and dusty hops. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, alcohol, and cloves, leading to a dry and spicy finish. The alcohol tickles the palate.

Christian (12717) - Odense, DENMARK - SEP 3, 2010
Cloudy orange with a lasting off-white head. Aroma of spice, fruit and flowers. Dry and fruity flavour with a spicy finish

fiulijn (18780) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 14, 2010
RBESG 2010, Grand Tasting, bottle
Cloudy amber color. Sweetish caramel aroma with traces of yeast. Sweet flavor, some malt, light herbal and spicy touch, very low bitterness, some yeast and bubblegum. What’s the point here?
