Right away, grape aroma similar to a white wine; not much else. Very clear beer, light orange color, 1/4 of a finger thick head. Taste, grapes, light barley. initial bitterness gives way to a sweet sensation. Somewhat sticky mouth feel but vanishes quickly to a dry finish. Alcohol mildly present. Moderate to high lacing. I don’t like many white wines (Favorites are Reds), however... This is a perfect beer to have a girlfriend/wife/friend who enjoys wine to try. High enough abv at 9% that it shows alcohol similar to a wine and enough barley to drink like a beer. Excellent!

Gold color with a nice white head. Aroma is citrus, fruit and somewhat caramel. Taste is definitely citrus with honey. You will taste a hint of alcohol in your throat. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

CanCrusher (511) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - MAR 23, 2014
Bottle 0,355L. Thanks to Kita for sharing. Clear, golden to orange colour, without visible carbonation. Small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing head. Yeasty aroma of mold, vinous muscatel and some herbs. Taste starts moderate sweet, where honey and muscatel comes out. Finish is moderate bitter, alcohol is warming a bit. Medium to full body, oily texture and soft carbonation.

Been looking forward to trying this one for awhile now. Pours a beautiful golden honey color with a thin fizzy white head. Aroma is white wine, toasted malt, honey, and muscadine. Front end is white grapes, apple, followed by sweet malts and intense honey flavors. There is a bit of a boozy taste to it that you’d expect from a 9% beer. Palate is similar to a cider. Crisp and carbonated. Overall a nice change of pace from the usual. Feels more like drinking a cider or a white wine than a beer.

A very tasty brew. Reminded me a bit of a Beligan style tripel. It hits you but it is also dangerously smooth. Definitely taste the honey and grapes. Nice.

Fabulous beer. Really enjoyed this change of pace. I could drink this all the time. Hard to believe it’s 9% ABV.

Bottle, pours gold with a small, light head. Sweet tasting with the honey and fruits. Was not entirely sure what to expect with this one but it was good.

Kita (861) - Koper, SLOVENIA - MAR 7, 2014
Bottle, 0.355l, shared with CanCrusher. Clear golden color with small creamy, mostly diminishing white head and soft visible carbonation. Aroma is moderate yeasty, mainly of mold, vegetably, herbal and of grapes. Taste starts with sweet malt and honey, following is winey and alcoholic, mouthfeel is warming, while finish is light bitter. Medium to full body, oily texture and soft carbonation in palate. This one is quite interesting with many wine characteristics...
