rayaron (658) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - MAR 30, 2015
Bottle sample at a tasting at Beer & Beyond. Thanks beerandbeyond. Clear light golden with no head. Very sweet aroma, sugary and syrupy, notes of apricot and liqueur. Quite sweet flavor, syrupy, boozy but doesn’t feel as 12% abv, notes of apple and tart, kind of apricot liqueur, funky. Soft carbonation, medium-bodied.

corkyrory66 (885) - BELGIUM - JAN 16, 2015
Vin d’orge à 12 % abv. Couleur roux moyen aux reflets châtains. Clarté nette. Bulles moyennes partout pas très vives. Mousse qui tombe immédiatement, nappage très ténu et partiel. Arômes de vinaigre (et même pas le vinaigre de vin …), margarine, haricots tarbais non cuits. 1ère bouche liquide sur l’aigreur pure et le cuir tanné. Arrière-bouche sur un lambic de deux ans. 2ème aigre, pâle. Arrière-bouche sans aucun attrait. 3ème avec laquelle on ne sait si l’aigreur se renforce, ou si l’on s’y habitue. Arrière-bouche à la grimace. Longueur misérable. Levure pincée, pauvre, très pauvre … Alcool qui est l’exemple type de l’alcool inutile, puisqu’il n’a rien à soutenir !! Finale un rien mieux que le reste (mais peut-être est-ce aussi l’accoutumance...). CONCLUSION : un navet pur et simple. Une platitude et une aigreur sans pareille. Quand je vois le slogan « beer better than wine » sur l’étiquette …, ce n’est sûrement pas avec ce type de bibine que l’on va le prouver !!! Mais la preuve est largement possible ailleurs ...

seynie (236) - Tienen, BELGIUM - JAN 9, 2015
Orange without much carbonation. Smells like gueuze. Red wine and grapes dominate first, then comes acidity which reminds of a good gueuze. The finish is dry white wine, chardonnay, mixed with gueuze. Very interesting beer.

37.5 cl bottle. Pours hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma is wineous and fruity. Tart, fruity and wineous. Wooden and fruity. Lingering fruity and light citric. Smooth finish.
