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.

fidelis83 (2137) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - APR 10, 2014
Clear copper pour with a small, oily, beige head. Aroma of dark fruit, caramel, rum booziness, brown sugar, planty, spicy and piney hops. Flavor is soft caramel, light toffee and toast up front, then light toasted cedar wood, mellow and sweet vinous notes, toffee nuts, sweet citrus, some earthy and herbal hops. Medium to heavy body, creamy, oily and chewy feel, light, blanketing carbonation, creamy to oily finish. Great stuff overall, odd though, big, sweet, boozy nose leading to a surprisingly easy going, smooth flavor profile and palate.

mgajdaczewa (828) - 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 (68) - 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!

Dark clear ruby color with some foam. Sweet malty smell. The taste is insanely creamy with an accompanying sweetness and a decent but fitting carbonation. Extremely balanced beer.
