Pours medium amber body that starts out clear, while the last glass is very hazy. The white head is small and collapses quite quickly, and doesn’t leave much lacing. The aroma is sweet and fairly strong, with notes of gingerbread, cookie, sweet caramel, marzipan, spices and some fruitiness. The same goes for the rather strong flavours. The taste is quite heavy sweet, a bit too sweet for my liking. The light bitterness in the finish isn’t enough to balance all this sweetness, and the mouthfeel ends up a bit cloying. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation. Still a nice experimental brew from Baladin.
[75 cl bottle, enjoyed 1 month before BB date, from Vinmonopolet Storo, Oslo]

Vignale (1994) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 11, 2013
Flaska från SB drucken på julölsprovningen 2013. Trevlig kryddad öl. Grundölet känns som en kraftig men frisk belgisk blond. Lite parfymiga blommiga dofter och smaker. Förutom det sticker ingefäran ut mest. Mycket trevlig.

UPDATED: DEC 2, 2013 Despite the interest in drinking a ginger and myrrh flavoured egyptian inspired beer, it?s flavours and aromas are not very well mixed-up and results in a bit of weirdness.

Jesterdeal (1814) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - NOV 23, 2013
Aroma is bubblegum, ginger, and citrus. Pours blonde with a big fuzzy film. Taste is soft wheat, ginger, bubblegum, and a sweet malt. Overall, very pleasant and understated. I can see knocking many of these back but for the price tag.
