March 27, 2013 - bottle at bavarian lodge. Did not think this is one I would have a chance to try, so paid up for it. Brownish orange pour with some soapy head that foams up with a gentle swirl. Aroma was woody, sour, fruity and alcohol. Smells more like a red wine than beer. Taste has the wood throughout and is very noticeable at the end, somewhat sweet start then a slight vinegar and a very red wine finish. This was pricey, but worth it.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle... Pours lightly-hazed and amber with a small, creamy, white head that doesn’t last long. The aroma is a collection of honey malt, tangy acidity, methanol and brown sugar overlying a slight earthy component. Full-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and soft carbonation. The flavor is a malty, vinous, fruity mélange of black cherries, red wine and caramel. Finishes lightly tangy and fairly dry. Bottle generously shared by landhoney!

16/03/2013 Ma che siete venuti a fà, 750ml bottle shared by Manuele Colonna. Ambrata viva, limpida, schiuma quasi assente. Al naso botta etilica mostruosa, sentori di malto, ossidazione evidente, frutta matura, carattere vinoso. In bocca ancora alcol, frutta dolce matura, vaniglia, leggero acidulo, astringente. Corpo medio-pieno, carbonazione soft. Mi aspettavo di più.

Bruce’s Birthday Bash at the Craft Clerkenwell. Another super generous share by Bruce. Hazy gold beer, little white head. Palate is light and with mild fine carbonation. Semi dry and smooth, a nice palate! Slightly sour fruits, dried fruits. A little malt cream. Bitterish seltzer minerals. Mild red wine adds interest and brings red berry fruits. Finishes light with the same basic sourness. Interesting and tasty but nothing like as rich as the 2000.
