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.

wiwetu (60) - 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!

Zlotta (247) - Bonn, GERMANY - MAY 10, 2015
0,33 l bottle from EDEKA Mohr, bottled on 9/4/2013. Clear, luscious reddish amber with just a thin, soapy, tan layer. Sweetish aroma of raisins, strawberry jam, bitter almond, plum brandy, cinnamon and caramel with some alcoholic notes in the end. Very sweet taste of strawberry jam, molasses, bourbon, bitter almond, rum, plums and raisins. Long, warming but not overly alcoholic finish. Full body, oily and chewy mouthfeel, completely flat. Great barleywine, very complex but still harmonic, almost unexpectedly the alcohol does not dominate it. A sipper, not quaffable at all. Liked it!
