Pours a huge head. Pale and cloudy. Aroma like a lemon detergent, but maybe I like lemon detergents...
Lemony, somewhat soapy flavor. Some grapes. Absolutely dry.

(Bottled, 4.0% ABV, brewed by Pivo Praha s.r.o., K Fialce 469, Praha 5, tel. 2 24915813) Hazy, pale golden color with medium, frothy head. Spicy witbier aroma. Slightly sweet, fruity and flowery flavor. Light to medium-bodied, soft-carbonated palate. Interesting, but not awesome.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottled. 4% alc. 3 months´ lagering. looks like champagne but a bit yellower. some rosehip in the aroma as well as champagne. weird and good. some tangy chamomile flavour, furry then disappearing texture, light grassiness. as eczematic says, with a bit more dryness, this would be great

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
what a weird beer. but I like it! Extremely excitable when poured, clear yellow with enormous fluffy head, as befitting a champagne beer. Smells of champagne yeast - sort of Duvely, gluey and doughy, with light malt. Tastes like pizza dough. White winey, perfumey and light, with a bit of bitterness. Quite dry but not dry enough, if this was bone-dry in the finish like Duvel (or like champagne) I’d like it even more. thanks motel once again. (maybe we should try aging one of these?)

Very, very strange. A beer with added muscat grape extract, this manages to taste like beer yet have a tang of wine that leaves the tastebuds well and truly confused. I’m not sure if I liked it so will have to try another next time I’m there, just to see..... (Bottle in Brewpub, Praha)

UPDATED: FEB 26, 2009 Bottle. Tea-like aroma and flavour. Sweetish. Mouthfeel seems a little thick, like orange juice or something. Fine-bubbled head which disappears rather quickly. 6 3 7 3 15
Bottle, 5.0%. 5 months past BB date. Sweet, citric, soapy, caramelly, teaish aroma. Hazy yellow colour. Very small white head. The flavour has loads of coriander. A little sweetness. Not much else. 5 3 5 3 13
