COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A description of the delicate aroma resembles a journey through a tropical greenhouse, the floral and fruity scents, the taster induced response. Orange blossom, violets and honeysuckle go hand in hand with pear, peach, lime and mango. The complexity is complemented with notes of vanilla and clove and complemented by a notion of lavender. After this fresh bouquet comes the resounding of a pleasant and unexpected surprise. The onset of the beer is sweet and reminiscent of homemade marmalade, to be taken over by the alcohol and a refreshing spiciness consisting hints of fresh sage and anise. It is at this time that the vinous character of the beer reaches its fullness and this puts seemingly effortlessly into the aftertaste, which inevitably seems to be not to think of grapes, which proved that a successful marriage between wine and beer is certainly possible.

Flaske, smagt hos Borup, dufter faktisk bedre end den smager, skjuler sine 12 % rigtigt godt.

Good experiment, but I didnt really work for me. The beer is a bit too boozy and sharp. But if you like Sauternes, this might be more up your alley.

MaartenRF10 (1597) - Wageningen, NETHERLANDS - MAY 30, 2014
Prettige verrassing om deze mooie fles tegen te komen bij de lokale slijter. Kon ik niet laten staan! En ik vind hem zijn geld waard! Licht troebel oranje amberkleurig met een vrij grove gebroken witte kraag. Geur is hout, vanille en witte wijn. Smaak is meer witte wijn, wat alcohol, hout en vanille. Vrij droog. Vrij zoet. Erg smakelijk!

beerandbeyond (682) - ISRAEL - APR 16, 2014
200-250 ml pour from the tap at the Kulminator in Antwerp. Clear brown with mahogany hues and a minimal head. Nose is nutty, with notes of vanilla, mild cocoa, Nutella, toffee. Sweetish flavors of caramel, baked fruits, warm spices, low bitterness, malt, ripe cherries and toffee. Full bodied, alcohol well hidden, complex and highly interesting. Great!
