COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
So simple in its creation, so magnificent in its maturity, this wonderful ale begins with Nature's most humble offerings, water, malted grains and hops. Our soulful yeast breathes life and depth into each brew. The steady hand of time orchestrates this alchemy into the splendid ale before you. Cheers!

Beautiful looking bomber into a Trappist glass. Clear golden amber color, very thin white head. Aroma of heavy malt, booze, fruits (apricot, pear, white grapes) and some yeasty spices. Taste adds caramel malt, candy-like sweetness, more alcohol, more spices, some hop bitterness and bready notes. Fully body, oily texture with a long finish. Some alcohol burn in the end. Balanced for sure, definitely a sipper.

It has a hazy orange amber colored body which was a little lighter than I had expected. With in it there are some small bits of yeast sediment floating around. On top the head which started out at about two finger tall settles down to just a light ring of foam around the edge of the glass. Lacing is very slick and slippery. Wow, this one lets you know right away that it’s a big serious beer. The aroma has big boozy character with strong fruity/estery yeast notes reminiscent of raisons and stone fruits. Again wow, there is some warmth here from the abv but it’s not harsh. It just adds a warm slow sipping character to the overall picture with also brings good estery yeast, sweet malt and light hops. I get notes of apricot, peaches, golden raisons and red pear. Hop flavor comes out a bit towards the finish but overall it ends fairly sweet with a warm boozy touch. Its texture is smooth but still carbonated and pleasant.

Vignale (1994) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUN 18, 2014
Flaska från SB. Whiskeyfärgad, lågt skum. Stor söt och fruktig doft med mycket honung, rostade mandlar, kanderad apelsin, smörkola, torkade aprikoser, dessertvin. Alkoholvärme, liten örtig aningen besk jästton. Ett stort quadliknande dessertöl, maffigt med stora smaker i bra balans. Riktigt gott.

Smak och doft av humle, malt, karamell, honung, aprikos, brunt socker, sirap, plommon, russin, smörkola med toner av körsbär. Rund, len, stor sötma med en del smak av alkohol. Lätt beska.

RedSox2004 (1210) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - JUN 13, 2014
Murky brown with a one-finger tan head and wonderful lace. Aromas include red wine, barnyard funk, Belgian yeast and dark fruit. Warming cherry alcohol taste with grainy, almost peat-like, sweetness, tropical fruit and hints of a floral hop bitterness. Full body, minimal carbonation, creamy and rich mouthfeel and a pleasant dark fruit sweetness in the finish.

Defreni (2464) - Husum, DENMARK - MAY 30, 2014
Flaske: Flot rødlig diset øl med et lille skumhoved. Duften er meget sød med masser af portvinsnoter og tørret frugt. Al for sød er den dog også i smagen og det er kun grundet de 12 % den er drikbar. AL for en dimensionel uden at bruge de mange procenter ordentligt.

Dark amber with pinkish red hues, beige head. Looks very nice in a glass. Aromas of cherry, raspberry, fruitcake, booze. The taste is like the nose but definitely has a cough syrup quality that is off putting. They overdid it with the alcohol on this one.
