COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A demi-sec ale brewed with whiskey yeasts, from the island of Islay, creating striking dryness and lively effervescence. The nose showcases almond and tropical fruits. The palate is malty, with flavors of plum, dried apricot, and spice. It’s finish is dry and warming from the high alcohol. Rare on tap!

Dobre piwo o czerwonawej jasnawej barwie. Bardzo musujacej jak szapan. Slodkawe przypominajace wino rozowe. Moc alkoholu niewyczuwalna ale po kwadransie mozna zdac sobie sprawe ze piwo sprawia wrzazenie ciezkiego. Posmak truskawkowy i brzoskwiniowy zarazem. Troche tez w smaku owocow tropikalnych. Zblizone do owocowego szampana to piwo, takie mi sie skojazenia nasuwaja. Plus za fajne zakorkowanie i oblanie woskowina. Prawdziwa elegancjaw opakowaniu.

UPDATED: FEB 15, 2014 A fantastic beer. Had both in the bottle and on tap. The bottle was aged 7 years. Pours a very nice orange. Smells like orange, with some Classic Belgian, and a bit of vanilla and caramel. Taste is smooth, with more citrus and a slightly boozy finish. On tap, it was slightly less smooth. Had at La Trappe’s Italian event. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
