3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
33cl bottle at Léhűtő, Budapest, for 800 Ft. My first in the style.
Light amber color, short but persistent white head, weird smell. Ar first the impressio is "WTF?"... First wave: fruity ale/belgian ale almost fruity beer like hits in. Ripe apricot, banana, berries. Second wave is a flush of lagery malts, almost vienna-like followed by a decie wipe of bittering hops mixture. Body is full, quite heavy to pull down. Average carbonation, sweetish smoth finish. Nice mix but not my style, as for now, i found it difficult.

Bottle. Lots of caramel, also lots of green apples and that is about all. Rather average.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle sample at a tasting at Max’s place. Thanks Stas. Clear light golden with small off-white head. The aroma is yeasty with notes of honey, floral with some fruitiness (pear). The flavor is a bit skunky, light hoppy bitterness, notes of honey, grainy with light sourness. Soft carbonation, light to medium-bodied. Not so fresh.

Sweet syruppy brew. Not a lot to it. I’ve had it a couple times now because I like Bekesszentandrasi brews but this one isn’t very good.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught at Békésszentandrás. This is a new version of old Vándor, and i drank it first time yesterday. Dark yellow colour, low foam what don’t disappear. Smell is lemon and bread, taste is sweet malt and citrus and light hoppy bitter at the end of all gulp. Long finish for the citrus and hop. Nice, not too alcoholic, complex but very simply drinkable. :) A new favourite for me!

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled. Amber colour, small white head. Aroma is malty, some bready notes along with herbs and earth. Flavour is quite similar, kind of a basic one, but still quite ok.

A Vándor baromi jó! Koncerten kaptunk kézműves söröket ajándékba. No mondtuk, mi is vándorzenészek vagyunk, a neve már jó, milyen a ser? Perfecto !!! Könnyű, különleges, itatja magát rendesen.
