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.

LarsEngen (367) - Sandvika, - DEC 31, 2012
33 cl bottle from Vinmonopolet Vika. Pours a clear amber with a two fingers light brown head that is very small bubbled. Aroma is very fruity with notes of tangerine, sweet yellow apples and some other citrus stuff. Taste of tangerine and a weak alcohol warm in the background. To be a 15.2% this is well done. Full body, sticky texture, flat carbonation and a long fruity finish with some hoppy notes.

ogniskowicz (401) - POLAND - JUL 6, 2015
W aromacie uderza spora dawka karmelu, jabłek i alkoholu, ale wszystko ładnie zbalansowane i przykryte ogromną ilością suszonych owoców. Super. W smaku potężne body, oblepiające usta niczym melasa, za nim idzie karmel, owoce (zwłaszcza jabłka), grzejący alkohol i niezła, lekko ziołowa goryczka. Wysycenie odrobinę za niskie - ale to piwo i tak robi kolosalne wrażenie. Dobra robota.

likeatrainwreck (133) - Stockport, Cheshire, ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2015
Superb. Dark ruby red beer with tan head that quickly recedes to a ring of foam. Really thick and syrupy in the mouth, sweet like orange marmalade, slight citrus bitterness to it. Boozy, yet the alcohol isn’t in your face.Really, really good... the mouthfeel is amazing, like drinking boozy golden syrup.

anstei (279) - 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 (874) - 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.
