3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
draft @ redlight redlight. Spicy malty nose, caramel, brown sugar, with a slight fruitiness. Pours a reddish amber with a thick white head. Malty, caramel, with citrus notes, with a nice bitterness, a bubble gum flavor as well almost floral. I really like this one.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Interesting beer. Poured perhaps a touch cold, with a small to medium sized, cream-colored head that soon settles to some swirls and a ring with a tiny bit of lace. Color is a cloudy brown amber opaque in the wider parts of the glass. Aroma is a muted combo of malt, fruit, apricots, plums, yeast, wine. Flavor is a blend of those qualities with interesting interplay between sweet and carbonic tang being slightly more dominant than bitter. Very rich. Body is big, but the sweet, tang and bitter create high points that along with its richness make it a little overpowering. Carbonation is good taken alone. Finish is medium in length. No alcohol warmth. One and done.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Ok. I swear I was just saying how I hate del ducato beers. .... Ha. K. This smells like unknown vapors. Brownish with a silty head. The smell is not appealing what so ever. Let this sit for almost an hour and it did improve. Plums, cheap white wine, raspberries, figs - maybe it was the figs. Not gonna finish this, mainly cuz I’m tired. The taste is kinda sour with a quick fade bitterness early, fig, caramel sort of burnt, fruits, wine, heavily carbonated. This ain’t my this at all.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled sample via boutip. Ruby brown in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of red wine, caramel, red apple, and spicy Belgian yeast. Acidic red fruit flavors dominate the palate, and are backed by minerals, toasted malt, pale malt, and magic marker. Medium bodied, but the tartness and slightly fizzy carbonation make it feel a bit lighter on the palate. A hard beer to pin down, yet it’s quite drinkable.

330ml bottle. Malty and spicy aromas. Pours bright dark gold, with nice white head, persistent. Medium body and carbonation. Taste is some sweet, malty, with spices and herbal flavours. Good long finish.
Really enjoyable, and a tasty twist for the style. Quite enjoyable.

Bought at a tiny wine shop on Kauai. Poured a deep, hazy amber into ridiculous little hotel glasses. Caramel and fruit aroma. Taste an interesting mix of sweet and tart with noticeable yeast.

7/17/10 notes: bottle. Appearance is murky dark brown with ruby. Aroma is a blast of aged fruit, nuts, toast and chocolate. Flavor shows more dried red fruit and dark candy sugar, with a finish that incorporates mild tartness well. A great drinker from start to finish, interesting at every step.

Sötétebb borostyán vörös színe van, belül ködös és zavaros. A habja nagyon vékony és vizesen buborékos. Illata fűszeres, égetett cukros, érett kék sajtos és kissé fanyar. Az ízében felfedezhetők aszalt gyümölcsök, élesztő, gorgonzola, sok fűszer és egy vörösboros fanyarság. Testes és kevés buborékkal van ellátva. Utóíze kissé fanyar, igen gyümölcsös és száraz. Nagyon érdekes sör, ami kis rokonságot mutat a szárazabb, gyümölcsösebb vörösborokkal.
