3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Alko. Pours hazy grayish orange with a strong orange-tinged head. Nose of grapes, citrus and caramel. Oh boy what a nice amount of grapes! Malty body with licorice, some alcohol and the some caramel. Bitter but not as sweet as nose might have hinted. Crisp carbonation with a sticky body. The nose had me expecting a much better experience.
