3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle... Clear amber brew with a tiny, fleeting, white head. The bouquet furnishes rooty and herbal notes – ginger, sarsaparilla, sassafras and vanilla flanked by a hint of cinnamon. Light to medium-bodied with lively carbonation. The well-balanced flavor is lightly acidic and spicy with a suggestion of toffee. Finishes up like a gingerbread cookie. Nice gruit.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
355 ml bottle at home, poured into a snifter. ABV 7.5%
Bright golden orange colour on the body, with a very froathy off-white head on top, that disappears in seconds just like a soft drink’s foam. Big chunks floating around in the beer’s body.
Aroma of juniper berries, oranges, spices, white pepper, laurel.
Taste is sour and bitter at the same time at first, strong taste of laurel leaves, white grapes, light alcohol, spices. Bitter on the aftertaste with good duration.
Thin to medium thin body, quite carbonated. Dry and tart on the palate.
Tastes like home made strong wine, kind of weird those flavours in my beer but very interesting as well and the final result is not bad at all, on the contrary.
