3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Craft Bier Fest Wien 2014. Hazy brown, only a bit of foam. Aroma is slightly sweet and bitter, apple cider with alcohol. Taste is also bittersweet and you can really feel some pine needles - which makes it pretty interesting for me. Aftertaste is lingering, pressing more on sweet malts and caramel. Not bad at all - but in my opinion loses out to the tequila barrel version.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy amber color. Very malty with refreshing pine nose. Malty, a touch sweet and cloying but not bad. Very malty, lots of pine. Decent stuff but not mind blowing. Would love to try tequila version.
