3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
0,33 l bottle from EDEKA Mohr, best before 22/11/2016. Clear, reddish amber with a huge, frothy, slowly diminishing, tan to white head. Nice fruity-spicy and a bit funky aroma of white grapes, green apple, sugar and lemon. Sweetish-spicy taste of sugar, white grapes, green apple, gingerbread, vanilla and lemon. Rather short, slightly bitter and minimally tart finish. Medium body, smooth mouthfeel, average carbonation. Expected a sweet, yeasty ale and got a more sophisticated, quite complex, refreshing example. I Really enjoyed it, especially the slight tartness balancing the sweet beginning.

Very sour both in aroma and in taste that overshadows other aspects of it.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl @ bottle. Solita garanzia dalla solita St Bernardus. Non ai livelli di altre sue birre più riuscite ma godibilissima. Bruna, bell’aspetto, dolce e beverina.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
brown colour, moderate sized sized beige-ish head; aroma of fruits (mostly plum and some apple), candy sugar, hints of vanilla and minimal alcohol; taste of brown sugar, yeast, dried fruits some bitterness and well hidden alcohol; isn’t it the same beer as St. Bernardus Pater?
