angel77 (770) - oviedo, SPAIN - MAY 22, 2014
Botella de 75 cl en el festival de Avilés en agosto de 2010. Lote 000058 hasta 01-01-2012. color dorado pálido con bastante carbónico, cuerpo medio a alto bastante fino y fácil de beber, con 11,5 vol que se deja notar en todo momento. La cerveza mas parecida a un cava o champagne que he tomado. Bastante buena y para repetir de nuevo.

Frutada, o teor alcoólico fica em segundo plano com o gosto de champagne

From bottle @ Zythos Beer Festival. Slightly hazy pale yellow with a frothy white head and little lacing. Aroma is of rosemary, yeast, floral, alcohol and honeyed malt. Taste is rosemary, floral notes, spices, honeyed malt and a warming finish. Medium body. Lively carbonation. Somewhat dry finish. Decent beer, but doesn’t worth the price tag. Interesting and different though.

Strange beer. More like a sparkling wine than a beer. Pour nice golden with a white head. Yeast, sugar in aroma. Also hints of malt, spices and hops in the nose. Tastes like - not sure - 50% of champagne with a 50% of a nice hoppy beer. Cool!

Clean pale golden color, big white head. Dry aroma and taste of champagne with tart, citrus, spice and grass notes. Fizzy carbonation.

Countbeer (4302) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - APR 21, 2014
Bottle: Served in a Chouffe glass: Bigger lively white foamy head that disappears pretty quick, on top of a clear yellow colored beer. Aromas of apple pie, cloves, yeast, light wilder tones, light manure tint, light malty and a hint of mint. Flavours of cloves, yeast, sparkling, bitter, corn, light malty, some fruits like apples and grapes, some spices like cloves, mint and cinnamon and some herbs. Aftertaste is a mix of yeast, corn, cloves (as said before), light wood and bitters... Low carbo, harsh creamy spicy mouthfeel, bit more than medium bodied and a creamy texture. Lightly complicated but more a difficult beer to drink... Expected more! Couldn’t finished a bottle!

The pale yellow colour and the small bubbles do indeed hint at chapagne. Nose smells heavily of yeast and alcool. Taste is similar, predominantly alcool, yeast, sugars. I didn’t like it and think it is heavily overpriced.

Ressemble plus à du crémant qu’à de la bière. Belle bouteille, à déguster dans une flûte. Peu d’intérêt sinon, aucune persistance en bouche. Et beaucoup trop chère.

Bubblegum straw hay, grass and vinous cider. Earthy hops, a Sweet bubblegum grassy flavor. Bizarre first taste, improves as you know what to expect. A little disappointing given the price tag, but it’s not bad

Bottle. Pour is bright yellow with thick white head. Aroma of bright and fresh fields. Spicy notes on the nose and taste. Lively palate. Multi layered finish. Dry and slightly bitter finish. Crisp. Leaves a warmth in your throat.
