100cl PET from Rimi Hypermarket, Vilnius. Enjoyed straight from the bottle and that might be just an advantage as it doesn’t seem to look very nice - yeasty lumps are swimming to the surface after the bottle is opened. Rather mild aroma; dried fruits, some yeasty notes and hints of fortified wine and bread. Quite different from the more heavy bready and caramelly industrial ones. Somewhat milder, more vinous and refreshing. Rather tasty, different and quite enjotable.

400ml bottle (Bambalyne, Vilnius)
Woh - smells a bit like a slightly sherryish trifle with some chocolate added. So fruits and lacticity playing a big part, I guess. It’s there in the taste too - it basically tastes of trifle. There’s a really good roast, almost burnt and hinting at smokiness, which explains the chocolate in thearoma, even if it’s not there for the taste. Kinda returns for the finish. Looks a bit ugly, it’s a muddy puddle, and the head’s very brief. Palate is a bit watery and fizzy, and the finish is a bit brief. However, it’s trifle semblance is wonderfully enigmatic, and quite delicious!
