3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, 37,5cL. Home. An orange opaque beer with brown hues with a medium white head poorly persistent. Aroma of fruits (grape, fig), wood, alcohol. Medium to heavy sweet ; round with a nice warming touch in the background ; still some air ; appreciated :) Medium good body, medium oily texture, average carbonation, sweet woody finish. Overall, a really good round warming fruity beer. Drinkable despite of its 19.3% alcohol !!

375ml bottle - thanks martjoobolut
Carefully poured, even the third glass was cloudy. Messy alcoholic white grape must and doughy aroma, ugh. Fuck me, booze!!!! Tastes of alcohol burn. Some breadiness. Hard to believe that this isn’t just doped with vodka, it’s so boozy.
