2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Burgundinpunainen. Tosi niukka vaahto. Perus makeahko tylppä tunkkainen tuoksu. Suklainen imelä vauvanoksennusmainen hapan maku. Kiinalaistyyppinen sweet&sour -tyyppinen suutuntuma. Hyvin hyvin jännä ja erikoinen. Ei kuitenkaan minulle.

1.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Smell: Cheap wine smell, sour, sweetness and a little bit of salt. Taste: I really don’t know how to describe it, it’s awful for me. Sweet, bitterness on aftertaste, plump and very bland. No head, no lacing and low carbonation. Totally not my style.

Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks DSG. Murky brown with white film. Lactic and yogurt aroma, fruit yogurt like apple yoplait that’s very sweet. No carbonation, light body, chocolatey aroma. WTF?!?!

Bottle shared at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks mom for this bottle! Rusty hazy brown with no head. Oxidized aroma of wet cardboard, lots of honey and some fruit compote. Sweet flavor, candy-ish, sugary, with honey, caramel, flat coke, root beer, fruit compote, cardboard and herbal hint. Flat, a bit sticky. Yikes!

500ml bottle, trade with Gregory, thanks. Brown color. Small size, white head, stays. Apple juice, sweet, dirty, jam in aroma. Nuts, sweet, cranberries in sugar powder, metallic and vanilla in taste. Weird and messy. Sweet and juicy body. No carbonation.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
500ml bottle (Dionizis, Radom) - trade with Gregory - thanks!
Totally vinegary sour salty aroma. Marinated olives. Sugary aspects a little apple-juicy. Simple palate, a little sweet, soft carbonation. First thing in the mouth is the sweetness, sugary, a little bit of cakey spice, but a big kick of the sourness too. Strangely drinkable after the scary aroma. This was right at the BB date, and I hope not what the brewer intended.

Sweet, sugar-like taste with a strong chocolate nute and a little sour texture. Full palate. Sweet finish. Absolutely no head. Browny colour.

1.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
500ml bottle from supermarket in Olsztyn. Slightly hazy brown colour, no head whatsoever. Aroma of chocolate, citrus, licorice and barnyard. Almost completely flat carbonation and somewhat watery body owing to that with an astringent sour finish. Taste is sort of sweet & sour. Kind of interesting, but I didn’t like the combination at all and the palate was just plain awful, couldn’t finish it.
