2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
33cl bottle from Racine’s in Cassel. Mostly clear pale gold with a short white head. Sharp aroma of candy sugar, alcohol, juniper and banana ice cream. Sweet, acidic, starchy, banana-heavy, a bit boozy... pretty brash in the mouth with sharp acidity. Cake frosting sugariness and potato starch don’t mix well. The alcohol is far too hot for a 7.5% beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle 750 ml at home, from a trade with Countbeer, thanks! Poured into a tulip glass, ABV 7.5%, BB 2001, yeap, this one is 13 years old, oldest beer I’ve drunk.
Pours a clear deep orange golden beer, with a small froathy white head, with okay retention for its density, leaving minimal lacing on the glass.
Aroma has cork, wet wood, lots of malts, white grapes, wine notes.
Taste is very sweet as expected but then on the other hand, it could be much worse. Old wood, lots of malts again, quite boozy, still some gin notes, plenty of sweet white wine. It drinks very nicely nevertheless.
Medium thin body, still live carbonation.
Very good even after all those years, I could drink the whole bottle but the booziness scares me.
