COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Lavet på Holbæk Bryghus Høstbryg tilsat sukker, mispelfrugter og en ny gær. Efter tre måneders gæring og lagring har den udviklet sig og har nu en duft af frugt, æble og portvin. Den lange fyldige smag fylder munden med malt, en frisk og aromatisk syrlighed, samt en diskret bitterhed fra humlen.

Christian (13814) - Odense, - NOV 12, 2012
Hazy golden with no head. Malty and fruity aroma with a laquer-like touch of alcohol. Sweet and fruity flavour with notable alcohol and a sugary sweetness. It delivers on the promise for a dessert beer

Very light haze on this gold beer, no head. Palate is light but also slightly viscous. Very light and fine carbonation. Light and very sweet malts. Light candyish floral fruits. Good floral orange, a touch of spice then some honeyed orange. Smooth semi dry finish. Drinks pretty easy for it's huge abv. I like the concept of a beer competing with a dessert wine and this beer makes a good fist of it. However the best dessert wines have an intensity of flavour that is lacking here. Be nice to this sub-style developed further though.

Holmen1 (6465) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JUN 11, 2017
Fra fad på DØE ølfestival, Lokomotivværkstedet maj-17: let uklar gylden med ok skum. Intens og frugtig, sherryaktig aroma. Kompleks smag med svesker, rosiner, portvin og saftige nordiske æbler. Lækker eftersmag og fremragende balancered. Et højdepunkt, og den nest sidste øllen på dag 2.

rane (1099) - Nibe, DENMARK - SEP 28, 2014
Bottle. As edition 2. Dark amber with lots of deposits and floating yeast. no head. Aroma vineous, not much beer.Taste sweet and vineous. We drank this one along with a blueberry cake and that combination went out very well. A fine dessertbeer. Would think it was a quad if it hadn´t been stated otherwise.

StoutHead (992) - DENMARK - SEP 25, 2014
Bottle. Pours a murky light brown color with a small head. Sweet aroma of malt, caramel, sugar, fruits - especially peach. Taste is like the aroma - very sweet with lots of sherry/port notes. Soft texture and almost no carbonation. Very boozy. Certainly an acquired taste - but not a hit with me.

Countbeer (6599) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - NOV 16, 2013
Bottle: Served in a Duvel glass: No head. Hazy orange colored beer. Aromas of apples, grapes, honey, wood, vinous, some chalk, light yeast, some caramel and some alcohol. Flavours of barley malts, honey, toast, spices, bitter, some alcohol, light sticky, some peach and apples, some wood, vinous, some grains and some sweet creamy tones. Aftertaste is apple, peach, malty, warm, honey, vinous and some grains and hay. No carbo, oily mouthfeel, full body and a light oily texture. I like it, a real nipper. A real barely wine!
