Bottle. Pours a mostly cloudy yellow with a thin layer of white foamy head. Aroma of forest fruits, woodsy, honey. Flavour is woody, more honey, lemongrass, some more forest fruits, caramel, burnt finish. Medium to high carbonation, oily mouthfeel. Great stuff

Beergaard (300) - Aarhus, DENMARK - AUG 10, 2015
The story behind this beer obviously makes it a bit better, but it is quite alright in itself though. The aroma is the most interesting part - clear notes of honey, grapes, yeast, some alcohol, and some spicyness that might come from the saffron. The taste is a bit overpowered by sweet and alcoholic honey notes. Some spice and grape character, but not as interesting as the aroma promised.

Skinnyviking (8645) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 9, 2015
Bottle at home. Medium high fluffy white quickly disappearing head. Cloudy yellow body. Weak malt straw aroma with a good deal of alcohol notes (which I do not like). Smooth and very sweet fruity honey flavor with little hops bitterness, low carbonation and a long sweet finish. Unfortunately the alcohol is too dominant in both aroma and flavor albeit the brewers have tried to hide it behind a very sweet, too sweet, flavor.

Ratpatrol1019 (70) - Palm desert, California, USA - AUG 8, 2015
Awesome brew if wine if not. Real neat Chardonnay character but still had the malty beer character as well. Some slight tartness and earthy spice notes as well. Not sweet or cloying at all. More dry and champagne like. So wonderfully drinkable it’s unreal.

Honey mead like, slightly tart, real carbonated. Some nail polish but not much. Sweet decent finish.

Interesting hybrid. Sweet with low carb. If this is accurate, they were drinking a lot better than I expected back in the day.

Bottled 2/20/15 at 44 degrees into 0.5 L siedel $ 3.39/12 oz bottle at Lager Mill Aroma of something I don’t recognize, initially weak and fades to nothing Head average (Three cm, aggressive pour), white, fizzy, diminishing to three mm ring and layer of tiny bubbles Lacing – none Body light yellow, chill haze Flavor odd and very not beer-like, more of a bitter herbal remedy; no hops, no malt, no alcohol, no diacetyl, no DMS. Palate light to medium, watery, lively carbonation Appearance 4/5, Aroma 6/10, Flavor 7/10, Palate 4/5, Overall 14/20

12 oz bottle poured. Pours an oily golden color with a thin ring head. Bottled a while back. Light body, white wine like. Sweet grape, with a dry dusty finish. I love the idea behind beers like this, but this one just tasted off to me. Bonus points for a unique beer, and it was fun to try, but flavor wise, this one was less my type of beer.

Bottle. No detailed notes - very sweet aroma, sweet but slightly hoppy taste, raw honey aftertaste.

trapped (2143) - New York, TURKEY - JUL 8, 2015
Draught @ The Baroness. Hazy pale yellow with small foamy whitish head, honey like aroma, low carbonation, sweetish taste with muscat grape flavor, medium tangy finish. Interesting but a bit too sweet.
