DSG (6329) - Tel Aviv, - SEP 22, 2012
Bottle shared at a tasting at kerenmk’s place. Thanks Hansen & Zita for this bottle! Clear amber with a big off-white head. Fruity aroma with some apples and peaches notes, light acidity, yeast and a bit of malt. Sweetish spicy flavor with malt, yeast, some fruitiness and light acidity. Medium-bodied.

rdb84 (124) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 29, 2014
Fles. Grote schuimkraag, donkeroranje, troebel. Aromas: confituur van abrikoos, sambal, diksap, vleugje appelcider. Klein beetje muf. Zeer aangenaam. Schuim blijft komen bij het bijschenken. Smaak is lekker zuur (perzik, abrikoos), wijnachtig, precies goed. Met het bezinksel erbij transformeert het bier en verliest het aan zuur, maar er komt een aangename zachtheid voor terug waarbij de gist goed is waar te nemen.

Moravius (595) - Berlin, GERMANY - NOV 15, 2014
