660ml bottle (ALEhouse, Riga, MelnaZiema2013)
Nice peachy aroma. Peaches in syrup, that is. Fuck it - this has just shat in my mouth. 1 sip was way too much, the second was just punishing myself. Nasty booze. Shit.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 75cl. Itís an almost clear one, golden in color and topped by a small, dense, off-white head. Quite hoppy aroma with pine cones and citrus peel. Alcohol, malty sweetness and some sugary hints in the aroma. Peaches too. Itís rather warming on the palate, full-bodied and quite pleasantly carbonated. Resiny, piney and peachy, with malty sweetness and alcohol in the flavor. A bit too syrupy sweet, too alcoholic, else itís a pleasant beer. 130216
