PabloZab (969) - Wroclaw, POLAND - MAY 3, 2015
Tap (VI FDP). Barwa miedziano-czerwona, piana kremowa, slaba, nietrwala. Aromat intensywny, winny, owocowy z delikatna nuta wanilii. W smaku kwasne, takie mega sour. O ile w aromacie byla wanilia to w smaku aromatow beczkowych brak. Posmak mega kwaskowy. Piwo specyficzne, kwasne ale w sumie lekkie w odczuciu.
