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. ABV on the label reduced from 15 to 11.9%. Recipe remains the same

butelka, warka do 28-01-2040 ;) Bardzo ladne, brazowo-czerwone piwo, ieco metne (spore drobinki lataja niestety po nim) z super piana, taka do krojenia nozem. Aromaty... no slodowa bomba. miodowo-owocowo-landrynkowo-krowkowo-koniakowe... w smaku ulepek. az sie usta lepia po kazdym lyku. na granicy przegiecia, ale nadal dostarczajace duzej przyjemnosci. jak na 12% alkohol dobrze schowany za ta slodka, owocowa syropowoscia. chmieli wlasciwie nie czuc. bardzo jednowymiarowe piwo w sumie, ale zarazem w tym jednym, slodowym wymiarze dosc fajnie zdywersyfikowane :) lepkie, geste, syropowe, najadliwe. klasa.

scirtes (284) - POLAND - NOV 21, 2015
Bottle, bottled 28.01.2015. 32°, 30 IBU. 48 EBC, 15,2 ABV. Pours dark amber with no head. Aroma is very sweet with fruity notes including grapes and some honey. Very sweet, with perfectly hidden alcohol, which can be noticed mainly due to warming sensation during drinking. Full bodied, oily, even syrupy, with soft, almost flat carbonation.

Bottled 330ml. -Courtesy of hrabren, shared with him and Marko (thanks!) Dark amber coloured, minimal off-white head, parmesan and alcohol in the nose. Heavy malty, dried fruits, not so strong alcohol and odd parmesan touch with notes of caramel in rather dry sweet finish. Hmmm...just hmmm

0.33 l bottle from Hoppiness, Koper, Slovenia. Dark hazy amber, some yeast floating, small off white to tan head. Strong aroma, cheese, salted meat, dry fruits, plums, biscuit. Salty, sweet, candy, fruit, some dryness, cherry maybe. Alcohol heavily present. Especially in the finish.

Thanks Hrabren! Shared with him, Ogivlado and Anja T. 30°, 30 IBU. 48 EBC. Columbus / Saaz. Red-amber clearish body, slightly off white body. Aroma... parmesan, fucking parmesan... what the hell? A little pancetta too, heavy, heavy, heavy ethanol too, vague sweetish notes - caramel mostly, vague pollen. Complex, not that pleasant. Sweet, too sweet taste, there’s a grapey, soft, nice note, but it ends in sticky sweet caramelly hell, notes of cherries, thankfully the alcohol is mostly missing in the taste, but it shows up in the finish. Actually quite pleasant taste considering the unpleasantish taste.
