COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Theres plenty of fruit like orange, tangerine and sweet apples. Its powerful and full bodied but still easy going. Although the name would suggest otherwise, its our favourite amongst the female clientele yet also highly appreciated by the other sex. Well hopped as always, but the obvious alcohol and the massive malt and fruit character restrict the hops to the background, only to reveal itself in the finish. Full bodied, notes of champagne. Champagne mousse after pouring in the glass. Grapes and a hint of mandarin curacao in the aroma, together with a hint of vin mousseux. Malty sweet flavor, immensely full bodied, with mandarine curacao and vinous notes. Thick mouthfeel, just a touch of yeast in the aftertaste. Huge beer. ABV on the label reduced from 15 to 11.9%. Recipe remains the same

2010 bottle. The taste is very similar to a fruity vinegarette, but without the acidity. I would say the mouthfeel is a little syrupy, but not so thick. For some reason I get a little bit of a kick in the back of my throat, no idea where that comes from. Hardly any carbonation at all, poured agressively, yet no head whatsoever. This is a great beer, and am happy to drink it to celeberate my buddy Alans birthday. Cheers!

small ivory white head that disappears quickly, no lacing. amber and gold colour. sweet smell that reminds of pear-syrup, figs and peach. very sweet taste that lingers on with some fig and peach aftertaste. the high abv is well masked, probably also provoking the sweet taste.bottle 33cl / notes from backlog
