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

Ktwse (4466) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 6, 2013
Pours hazy orange with low frizzy white head. Arona of apricot, peach, mango, passion fruit - like a fruit explosion! Some caramel and toffee in the background perhaps. Taste is incredibly fruit sweet with a booze backbone, only a bit of bitterness in the finish. Creamy and full with practically no carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Garlic_of_Doom (639) - SWEDEN - MAY 30, 2013
Bottle, 2012 vintage. Aroma hits hard with peach and banana, sweet malt, some saison/brett/ slight sourness as well. Taste is very sweet with ripe tropical fruits of all kinds, mandarine is most prominent. Canned fruit. Honey, hops and slight alcohol finishes this one of. Mouth feeling is smooth and sticky, low carbonation. Strange one...not a typical barley wine at all but very nice nonetheless.

Javier25 (1) - - MAY 20, 2013 does not count
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!
