COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
There’s plenty of fruit like orange, tangerine and sweet apples. It’s powerful and full bodied but still easy going. Although the name would suggest otherwise, it’s our favourite amongst the female clientele yet also highly appreciated by the other sex. Well hopped as always, but the obvious alcohol and the massive malt and fruit character restrict the hops to the background, only to reveal itself in the finish. Full bodied, notes of champagne. Champagne mousse after pouring in the glass. Grapes and a hint of mandarin curacao in the aroma, together with a hint of vin mousseux. Malty sweet flavor, immensely full bodied, with mandarine curacao and vinous notes. Thick mouthfeel, just a touch of yeast in the aftertaste. Huge beer.

anstei (320) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - JUN 5, 2015
On tap at Erzi Zurich. Pours a classy beautiful orange-ish amber. Aroma of a pastry shop, very sweet. There’s no point hiding the alcohol with that ABV anyway, but it fits beautifully with the taste. This beer has more the air of a good sweet liquor than what you associate with beer.

mgajdaczewa (905) - Katowice, POLAND - MAY 31, 2015
W aromacie karmel, chlebowość, lekka słodycz owocowa przejawiająca się w rodzynkach i śliwkach, wyczuwalny już nosem alkohol. W smaku potężnie chlebowe, karmelowe, słodkie, nuty likieru ziołowego, goryczka ziołowa, dość spora. Owocowość z aromatu się gdzieś gubi, alkohol wyraźnie wyczuwalny. Mało skomplikowane i nieco za ciężkie, ale całkiem niezłe.

wiwetu (83) - Warsaw, POLAND - MAY 24, 2015
Jak takie piwo, które ma z dziesięć wersji, trafia do knajpy na kran, nigdy nie wiadomo, w jakiej wersji. Stawiam, że w podstawówce. Bardzo bogaty aromat (las, jeżyny, bez, cytrusy, kwaśne jabłka. W smaku podobnie, z dodatkiem mocnej podbudowy słodowej i wyraźnie zaznaczonego chmielu, ale o lekkiej goryczce, która w obliczu reszty smaków nie pozostawia po sobie posmaku. Drożdże szampańskie robią robotę. To jest, kurwa, piwo!
