Bottle, 75 cl. Clear golden. Effervescent. Was expecting more body, harsh and metallic. I did not enjoy this beer.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle from systembolaget. The aroma is very nice, dry fruits with apricots, apples and pears being the most noticeable and a lighfulness to the aroma. It pours a darker orange with a slight haziness and a porous white head. The taste is nice, sweet and fruity. Oranges and tropical fruits in a nice mixture. A light body and easy on the palate with a slight sourness. This is, in my opinion, a solid and very enjoyable beer.

Funky, tart aroma with banana and stable elements. Clear golden white head. Malty sweet taste with lots of bread in combination with a fair bit of tartiness. Light body, lively carbonation dry. A really light and refreshing beer despite its alcohol content

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled as Grande Reserve. Slightly cloudy orange color with a beautiful large white head. Aroma is sweet malt, yeast, hops and spice. Very soft body. Flavor is much the same as the aroma, however the hop/spice finish is more pronounced. A complex beer but exceedingly drinkable. Tres bien!

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Hazy deep orange body with a lovely sticky white head and moderate lace. An almost champagne like aroma with hints of mustiness and anise(?). Wonderfully full bodied, much in the manner of a fine Belgian Trappist Ale. Very peppery, malty and a slight warm alcohol feel on the back of the throat. Amazing.

You can certainly tell that this beer was made ihn France because the aroma and flavor is reminescent of a red wine that is very rich in flavor. I problalbly make this rating because this is the first sampling of this style.

Clear golden color with a lot of sparkling bubbles seaking the sky. Three finger high, white, foamy head that leaves lacing on the glass.
Nose: belgian ale, yeast, honey, sugar, green apples, pears, lemon and a bit of orange.
Taste: Complex taste of marzipan, citrus, lemon curd, orange, sweet caramel malt, pears and banana.
Medium body with high carbonation, almoust like Champagne. Soft texture. Feels luxury and classic! I like this!
