Vignale (4054) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 5, 2017
Flaska från Beergium. Crooked Stave-provning med Lilja och Samuel214. Kopparröd/brun med vit liten krona. Doft av övermogna äpplen, kola, viol, vanilj och mörkt socker. Förvånansvärt lätt kropp. I smaken mörkt socker, lite blommiga toner, övermoget äpple, torkad frukt, krusbär, söta druvor, vitt vin och lätt syrliga inslag. Aningen pepprig eftersmak. Känns som en tunn, lite syrlig abt. 12% känns definitivt inte av. Komplex, men kanske lite spretig. Spännande och god.

MartinT (10102) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 24, 2017
My Bottom Line:

This vinous strong ale shares earth and wood under grape and cherry-like fruitiness, leading to softspoken acidity and tannins.



Further Personal Perceptions:

-A veil of foam sits atop the hazy red. This is very far from the ‘Golden Ale’ advertised on the label…

-Carbonation is delicate.

-Alcohol is very well hidden for 12%.



Bottle.

Kul take på en belgian strong golden ale, men tycker inte det når riktigt fram.

Bill Becker (1911) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - SEP 18, 2017
December 2015 bottling.

Pours orange brown, hazy on first pour, small head of foam. I heard zip when I popped the cap.

Smell wise, I notice sour cherries, some funk and oak.

Taste wise, sour cherries, oak, mild funk,acetic acid, pretty much zero alcohol unless it hits me deeper into the session.

Medium body with lively carbonation.

Pretty darned tasty.
