2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Drinking blind from a 750ml bottle.
Not so nice aroma for a beer. I smell cow manure, sulphur, oxidation and after I got to know what beer it was, I’d recognise the vinous aroma.
It’s a pale orange, clear beer with a small whitish head.
In the taste mainly sweetness with some bitter en sour undertones. It reminds me of grains.
Low carbonation. Don’t like it much, but had worse...

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Labeled Cap d’Ona Spéciale au Banyuls, stating 7% Banyuls wine is added resulting in a 5.5% beer. Foamy white unstable head over a clean copper body. Sweet aroma, with some brown sugar, raisin, cooked vegtables and sweaty yeast. Taste is exactly as expected, bit cloying, brown sugary sweetness, very mild classic hop underline. Sticky ending. Certainly not a successful experiment for me. Pass. (33cl bottle, gift from Darren and Flavia, from and drank in Ax les Termes)

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. A thin layer of bubbles lay shortly on top of a deep golden, leaning to amber, body. Aromas are mostly caramel and roasted malts, with a slight metallic skunk at first. This fades after a while though. Evident alcohol. Very straightforward. Rather sweet, this one, with a metallic finish. Light bodied, fizzy carbonation. Not their best.
