3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a lovely orange to golden body that is very hazy. The small, frothy head is white and reduces to a partially covering film that doesn’t leave any lacing. Strong, acidic, crisp and sour aroma. It’s fruity, I get notes of rhubarb (it smells like my home brewed Rabarbrapapa!), but most of all it’s vinous, with strong notes of rosé wine. The taste is light sour and acidic, moderate sweet and moderate bitter. The rather strong flavours follow the aroma. It’s a bit demanding, and I conclude once again that beers aged in wine barrels isn’t quite my thing,

Vollmundiger Antrunk mit hell malzigen Noten, die Lagerung in Weinfässern ist überdeutlich. Würzig, das Verhältnis von süß zu sauer ist nahezu perfekt. Zum Ende dabei eher süßer, wenig bitter, weiterhin hell malzig. Dennoch spritzig. Super! 9/12/11/12/11/12
