Birra con carattere. Buona sorso dopo sorso. Gusto forte e pieno. Amara quanto basta e ben equilibrata.

UPDATED: APR 30, 2006 It is very strong, but is not as strong in flavour as the alcohol, but is vry nice in colour and the foam is great.

JonMoore (2066) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 12, 2005
Bottle, 6.6%. Clear amber colour with nice white head. Aroma is malty, caramel, and nutty. Quite a pleasant taste; malty, caramel, fruity wuth a sweet malty finish. Medium mouthfeel. A bit of an under-achiever, but pretty good nontheless.

jbrus (4990) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - MAY 14, 2004
Strong apple aroma. Red, beige head, very nice lace. Sweet to very sweet, light spices, light bitter to bitter in the finish, strong apple flavor, little sticky, alcohol burning sensation in the finish. Not bad at all for a macro brewed beer.

Re-rate, Bottled, blind tasting session: Aroma is like strawberry champagne for kids with light hops. Red/orange color, off-white head, good lace. Very sweet, light increasing bitterness, hint of strawberry in the flavor as well, sugar, light hop bitterness, soft. March 2002, 3.3: Wine, dry barnyard aroma. Amber/red, off-white frothy head, diminishes fast, nice lacing. Wine flavor, alcohol bitterness, moderate sweet, moderate full. Short sweet finish with a little pepper and little burn.

Seems the appropriate time of year for this fellow. Aroma starts with harsh maltiness, which gives way to a good sellection of fruits. Taste is also fruity however seems flatter than what it should be, very little carbonation. Intresting character.

Bottle. Creamy white good mostly lasting head. Lots of hoppy flowers in aroma. Really good. Nice hoppy bitter flavor, average finish. Oily palate, strange european strong lager, but I really like this beer.

Die Erwartungen waren gering, das Ergebnis einfach nur nett und überraschend. Haufen von wirklich fruchtigen Aromen machen nun mal eine Menge aus. Frische Ananas, dazu Trauben und Pfirsich. Erstaunlich, wie gut der heftige Alkohol kaschiert wird. Hier wurde gepunktet !
