Part of the first German beer tasting in Idar-Oberstein. Thanks to Steptin. Light orange color with no head. Aroma is pine, and sweet candy. The taste is very sour and some spice, Palate is terible. Not a good beer at all in my book. Why would someone want to drink this?

DBF Goes 20110320 (75 cl bottle): A dark yellow beer, slightly cloudy and hardly ni head (white). A nice aroma which is dominated by alcohol, calvados (apple, distilate), wood and vanille. A slightly sweet taste with a somewhat sharp alcohol, fruitness and some malt.

ACBF. Hazy gold beer, no real head. No carbonation. Even malt. Nice fresh apple calvados carries through start, mid and finish. Semi dry palate. Good stuff. Much stronger Calvados prescense than last years batch.

@ACBF 2011. Strong notes of calvados throughout the sip. Moderate alcohol burn end game. Nice.

Bottle at ACBF 2011. Unfortunately, I was served from a bottle that had been opened the day before, and it seemed like the beer was not in its best condition. Pours glowing gold with a few lonely bubbles. Juicy, sour aroma, slightly funky. Has an odd flavor, lightly tart, slightly buttery, lightly sweet. Full bodied with soft carbonation, hot in the throat. Buttery finish, alcohol to spare, light dough, certainly warming. Wasnt overly impressed.

Bottle shared by Tmoney99. Pours a hazy peach color with a small white ring of bubbles. The aroma is tangy, tart fruits, woody, white grapes, with some herbal notes. The flavor has a burst of tart fruits, herbal, woody before the alcohol heat takes over. Much of the finish was dominated by alcohol. Medium bodied. Interesting, but too hot.

Abio (1859) - Waasland, BELGIUM - MAR 4, 2011
Light orange coloured beer with no head. The taste is sour sweet, spiced, just like the aromas. I miss gas in this beer. Not totally my thing.

Bouteille 75cl partage avec Tomaz, lot# 370. Orange avec un col fin et beige. Arme bois de chne, bl et orge tout en ayant ce subtile nez de Calvados qui se mlange un medley de fruits tropicaux. Douce et peu rappeler un peu le miel. En bouche, on reconnat de suite ce ft de Calva laissant en bouche une impression de pomme et un palais qui est rchauffant. Levure belge allant vers le style dabbaye avec une fine note de fleur de houblon. Japprcie ce ct fruit venant du Calvados et qui donne une chouette dimension en bouche o je retrouve ananas, citron, orange. Le tout reste sec en bouche.

Ahhhh, quelle magnifique chose que cette biere. La gout est fortement alcoolises, mais on a reellement limpression davoir melanger du Calvados. Les notes de pommes et de poires sont la, la force de lalcool aussi, peut etre un peu trop presque. Longueur en bouche, balance de lamertume, presence des notes fruitees, tout y est comme je laime. Reellement superbe!
