3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
33cl, 2013 vintage stored 1,5yrs. Moussy deep golden-amber pour. Exotic-spicy, soapy nose of Chinese candied ginger and firtree bathfoam, underlaying sweet mousse and orchard fruit caramels, honey. Carries most nuances over into medium-full bodied taste, making good use of its 8%: pickled citrus zest marmelade made with natural fir resins for pectins, sweet ginger, smoky-caramelised peach with a residual tartness, firwood airspray condensed into dessert mousse. Not much of an abv nose. Well balanced, complex, homily exotic and well drinkable.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Shared by bartlebier on April brewpub, thanks. Forest aroma, hints of cheesy yeast, perhaps due to aging, some floral and honey notes as well, caramel sweetness in taste, herbal honey, nicely balanced by a bit of a sour note and really some forest green, spruce tips covered in honey and fermented resin, thus far away from bubblebath cleanliness. Interesting experiment.

330 ml bottle. #17967/18000. BBE Dez/2017. From Geiserich. Vielen Dank Michael!
Hazy reddish orange golden colour with a tiny white head.
A very strong aroma of syrup, some flavour syrup, figs and raisins. Strange but not bad. The flavour is also strong with pine needles, flavour syrup, mild bitterness and some sourness. Quite peculiar but interesting. Not bad at all. The alcohol is well hidden in the strangeness of this. Rich. Thanks to Michael for sending this to me!
