75cl bottle at Cafe Buitenlust, Oischot. Weird smell, not really pleasing. Taste as well. Too much carbs. I think a champagne-like beer can be brewed a lot better.

Light golden ale with a thick white big bubbled head. Light malt, alcohol, aniseed, caraway and peach notes. Delightful bubbly and dry sweet malt with expanding qualities, oily and onctuous mouuthfeel. Good hops presence, with the alcohol warmth, and a honey finale.

2006 version, Ä 12,95 Mitra Hengelo. Blonde with a slight touch of pink. Odd mix of malt and grapes in the aroma. Champagne yeast odor. Dry and light. Vinous, alcoholic and bubbly. The closest a beer can get to Champagne Brut, only less fruity and more alcoholic.

Bottle - Grass, lemon, spices and yeast. Bubbly gold with a rich head. Sweet honey, light citrus, coriander and a bit booze. Wonderful, canít believe it took me so long to try this. Light, flavourful, the champagne style bottling adds a superb look and palate.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
2009 vintage bottle. It pours straw yellow, with high champagne-like carbonation and a quickly-dissipating thick fizzy white head. The nose is slightly sour white grape, hay, orange, melon, ginger and elderflower. The taste is surprisingly sweet, tonnes of melon, orange, lemon, hay, grass, bread, honey, elderflower and increasingly more ginger as it warms-up. It has a foamy mouth-feel and a champagne-like body. An interesting beer, which is a bit too sweet for me to enjoy.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a deep, rich gold with a tall fizzy and crackling white rocky head, mostly diminishing with no lacing noticeable. Aroma is fruity and floral perfume hop, malt (straw, biscuit), yeast (dough) and a peppery spice, alcohol notes. Spiced yeast and malt flavor, tart and bitter acidity follow, buttery and spiced honey in the middle with a drying alcohol finish. Medium bodied and fizzy-foamy, spicy palate. The beer was good, but not worth the $28 it cost me.

Pours lightly hazy bright golden with a medium, very fizzy white head that almost immediatly disappears. Fizzes along nicely afterwards with lots of bubbles creating a continuing film of foam. Impressive looks for a beer. Aroma is very fruity, lots of oranges, lemons, apples. A good deal of coriander as well. Very high carbonation, some oiliness to it. Flavour is very champagne-like, sweetnes with lots of slightly tarty fruits, apples, oranges and vanilla and coriander mixing in well. Itís very vinious as well. Truly a remarkable beer - expensive, though.
