COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"Vintage 2005"
Our PGR has aged for 24 months on oak barrels and has been bottled for the first time on the 27th of December 2007. The main difference with the Pannepot Reserva is that PGR matured the last ten months on Calvados oak barrels, adding extra complexity to the beer. We dedicate this beer as a tribute to Jeppe & Michael of Řlbutikken in Denmark. Those gentlemen were the first to discover our beers on an International basis back in 2004 and are responsable somehow for our beers being all over the globe since then. As a token of gratitude towards Jeppe & Michael, the first shipment of PGR was scheduled to Řlbutikken so they could be the first to launch its commercialisation.

Lukaduke (1998) - Portland, Maine, USA - DEC 3, 2012
2008 VIntage. Pours a rich black umber color with a thick frothy khaki colored foam. On the nose its soft and inviting with nice notes of wet wood, herbal earthy spice, dark fruit and a touch of dark bitter chocolate. On the palate its continues with a mysterious complexity and balanced harmony that the nose hints at. Rich flavorful beer with amazing mouthfeel and a real palate pleaser from start to finish. I wish i could have one of these everyday i get home from work it truly is a perfect beer !

TET (1548) - FINLAND - JUL 6, 2014
Bottle 2009, exp. 04/05/2019. A very dark brown beer with an almost medium and beige head. The nose is just great, lots of dark and dried fruits, prune, dates, strawberries, some liquirice and hint of alcohol. Taste has dark fruits, prune, raisins, quite strong herbs, dry barrel, some fresh strawberries. Hint of alcohol in the end but that’s not bothering, it should be there. Almost full bodied, smooth and nice to drink. The great beer, a perfect balance and smoothness, very complex.

JoeMcPhee (8302) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 1, 2014
A most generous gift from HogtownHarry. Pours a deep brown pour with a wispy, fast-fading tan head. The aroma is great - intense figgy fruitiness. Dates, plums and some hint of tartness that reminds me of some cider barrel aged stuff I’ve had in Ontario. Slightly boozy but not in a bad way - it’s got loads of oak and warming intensifies this aspect of it. Rich and chewy with a nice balance. Showing some age but is in fine condition.

Vintage 2011. Esplosione di gusti che va dalla prugna e le bacche alla nocciola e caramello, con una torbatura leggera e note di legno maturo e dolce. Stupenda ed elegante!!!

Seul (1) - Lokeren, BELGIUM - JUN 16, 2014 does not count
Vintage 2009. Bottle from Geers. Dark, almost black, with a beautiful red shine to it when held in the light. Quickly disappearing tan head. I had the Reserva the day after this, and I must say the second aging on calvados barrels does wonders for this Grand Reserva: the acidity of the French oak is much more balanced and less prominent on the tongue. Velvet like smoothness, I only had a real hint of booze (calvados) on the last sip. Hiding its alohol % very well. My favourite Belgian beer?.. My favourite Belgian beer.

NeoHippie2 (907) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUN 12, 2014
2005 bottle. I’ve been holding on to this gem for awhile. Dark brown almost black pour with a tan head. Aromas of figs, oak, brown sugar, and sweet malts. Flavor is similar. Rich and robust finish with no trace of the abv. This has held up tremendously well. Still plenty of carbonation and the flavors are all wonderful, no oxidation to speak of. The best of the Pannepot lineup without a doubt. This beer was a real treat. Delicious.
