3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours cloudy amber with low white head. Aroma of light citrus, hay, leaves, barnyard, yeast. Taste is balanced hoppy sweet with honey, bread, caramel, milk chocolate. Body is surprisingly light for the ABV, and creamy with low carbonation. The wine barrels aren’t that present, but after a few sips, I can definitely make out some notes of sweetish Austrian riesling or something similar.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 ml bottle.
Pours a golden colour without a head. Aroma of white grapes, oak, birch leaves and grass. Flavour of tart white grapes, white wine, mild caramel, wood, earthiness and some grassy notes. Medium bodied, low carbonation and a sharp finish with white grapes and white wine. Like a cheap white wine. I’d rather drink beer. Or at least decent white wine.

33 cl bottle.
Hazy golden color with a small head. Some sour apples on the nose, yeast, mild spice notes and some caramel malts. Citrusy fruits and yeast on the flavor, sourish berry notes, some spices and goose berries too. Somewhat dry sourish palate. A disappointment.

Very hazy gold beer, good white head. Crispy palate with a carbonated nip. Mild creamy malt and a brief not of mellow bubblegum. A tart grape and citrus flavour dominates. Finishes softish and semi dry. Different!
