2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Süßer, plörrig wirkender Beginn. Leider klingt die Süße nicht ab, dazu kommt auch noch eine allgemeine Trockenheit. Die hellen Malznoten helfen hier nicht weiter, das Bier wirkt einfach disharmonisch. Junge Traube im Abgang. /6/7/6/11/6

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Medium offwhite head. Body was clear until I poured sediment in. Muddy opaque amber body with carbonation. Papery toffee and marzipan aroma with grape and alcohol notes. Bitter-sweet, and acidic, grapes and herbs taste with vinegary notes. Mid-bodied. Acidic mouthfeel. Dry-sweet grapes and flowers aftertaste with herbal papery notes. Nice, but not really successful. (0.25l bottle, Fish & Beer, Copenhagen.)

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
should have let it settle more. the beer was quite cloudy
dark tan w/ some bubbles
nose switches b/w tart/sweet belgian and sweet juice (apple?)
tastes totally different than it smells
med body and hardly fizzy
i’m assuming the odd flavour that dominates is the sauternes; oaky and dry
very interesting! not superb but fun to try. split a bottle with several people so i’d like to have this again. (all to myself)
