"Vintage 2005"
Our PGR has aged for 24 months on oak barrels and has been bottled for the first time on the 27th of December 2007. The main difference with the Pannepot Reserva is that PGR matured the last ten months on Calvados oak barrels, adding extra complexity to the beer. We dedicate this beer as a tribute to Jeppe & Michael of Ølbutikken in Denmark. Those gentlemen were the first to discover our beers on an International basis back in 2004 and are responsable somehow for our beers being all over the globe since then. As a token of gratitude towards Jeppe & Michael, the first shipment of PGR was scheduled to Ølbutikken so they could be the first to launch its commercialisation.

Maris (1390) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - SEP 20, 2016
From a 330ml bottle (2012 vintage) on 20/9/2016. Pours a murky dark brown with pretty much no head. The nose is fruity, with a good whiff oak a some vinous notes. Flavour wise it’s big and sweet, with plums, raisins, prunes, cherries and brown sugar, against a background of warming alcohol and oak. The texture is thick and slick, with soft carbonation. A complex, nicely balanced sipper.

Kittenbieer (64) - LYON, FRANCE - SEP 18, 2016
Belle robe d’un brun intense avec une jolie mousse ivoire crémeuse.Un nez très prometteur: de bonnes odeurs de prunes,raisins...Un alcool en bouche qui fait penser au porto avec en prolongement une douceur et amertume parfaitement équilibrées! Une bière d’exception étonnante et excellente!!!(que je contiuerai de partager avec mon Appiantiqua....)

Goûtée dans un petit verre Duvel 18cl.(partagée avec mon Kittenbieer ...) Vintage 2011. Très belle robe Brun opaque avec carbonatation intense et mousse crème. Le nez annonce déjà un moment d’exception : arômes de prune et de raisin dans une complexité enthousiasmante. Le goût ajoute des notes de vieil alcool et de Porto avec un parfait équilibre douceur/amertume. La finale est très longue et renforce l’harmonie qui se dégage de cette originale et délicieuse bière. Une très grande réussite qui donne envie d’y revenir!
