3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This one is best on a clean palate. The first few sips had a nice strong, fizzy, and fruity flavor, followed by a warm aftertaste. Mingled in was a little bitterness. If you sip on it continously the alcohol takes over, the fruitiness goes away and it tastes somewhat like a high-class malt liquor. The aroma is quite nice. I was comparing this to the Duvel I drank a week ago and thought it would come out on top at first, but I really think the alcohol content gives it a somewhat malt liquor feel, whereas the Duvel stayed consistent in taste. I found this to be much better if you wait 2-3 minutes in between sips. It’s good, but if I had a choice I would take the Duvel, not that either of them come that cheap.

Mange procenter uden at den virker spritet. Den mangler måske lidt sødme for at opveje styrken.
