Bottle, 75cl corked. A hazy, orange colored beer topped by a dense, finger-thick off-white head leaving some lacings. The aroma has a touch of nailpolish remover, it’s vinous and lighlty spiced, with lots of fruityness. Tropical fruits and some sugar. The flavor has a little sourness, with vinous hints, spice notes and quite a lot of fruityness. It’s quite warming on the palate, full-bodied and effervescent, and feeling dry even though it’s sweet. It’s quite bitter too, both in the initial and the final flavor. Starting quite boring and sort of disappointing this one, but then it turns out to be really pleasant, but I have to admit I prefer the regular edition by far. 131122

Christian (10779) - Odense, DENMARK - NOV 22, 2013
Ulfborg weekend celebration of nothing in particular. Hazy orange with a small white head. Lots of fruit in the aroma, with oak, wine, spice and a bit of funk. Sweet and tart fruity flavour with lots of oak, red berries, caramel and quite a bit of alcohol. A bit over-the-top barrel character for me

Marheb (1749) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 13, 2013
Très vineux et fruité au premier contact, arôme excessivement complexe. Les sucres dominent, vanille, caramel, fruits confis, vraiment intéressant. Le genre de bouteille qui gagne à dormir dans le cellier!

mathieuc (986) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 12, 2013
Pours a clear copper with a nice white head that leaves great lacing. First whiff is of green apples although this isn’t necessarily a bad thing. There is also some white candi sugar in there, too. Taste is not really sweet, a lot less than the original at least, there is a light tartness than prevents it from ever being cloying! Woody, winey, complex. Low carbonation, sticky/syrupy mouthfeel. This was really fun to drink and even more to compare it with the regular edition. Both are really excellent but extremely different.

czar (3790) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 12, 2013
pours hazy dark golden, almost copper, with a small and persistent off-white head, showing some lacing spots. intense red and green apples - cider-like and clearly off, sweet and spicy caramel, oak, red wineyness, other fruits, spices, tobacco, hint of garbage, grass, pepper. moderate carbonation, light acidity, grassy-herbal-spicy finish. over-barreling and off but it’s somehow still enjoyable..
