1.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle. The aroma is not spicy but fruity enough, with apricot and apples, slightly citrusy perhaps. Faintly hoppy, decidedly sweet pale malty. Quite nice, crisp aroma but the taste and especially palate are a disaster. Light to moderate body, sweet, light tart with a faint bitterness. Unfortunately, it’s full-blown alcoholic and unpleasantly astringent, and there is no depth or complexity to balance that. Tastes like a diluted apple/apricot liqueur. What a disappointment.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, 9%. Very fruity aroma, almost caramelly from the malt. Almost clear dark golden colour. Small frothy chalk white head. The flavour is very sweet and alcoholic in OK balance. Caramelly sweetness with a slightly spicy note, probably from the yeast. Like a cross between a standard Polish super mocne and a Belgian tripel.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours slightly hazy golden with airy white head. Clear aroma of malt, fruit and caramel with a distinct boozy note in the long nose. Dryish onset, followed by the malty sweetness and boozy belches. A little watery but ok.
