3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dutch Ratebeer Meeting. Cloudy yellow coloured, big head. Artificial cirtus aroma, bit weird. Very distinct flavour, i’ve never really had anything like it. Bit there’s this weird artificial flavour that spoils the fun a bit. Original, but not great.

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?)

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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
