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

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

330ml bottle. Some weird aromas, vinager, but not acetic contamination. Pours golden, with short live white head, some lacing. Medium to full body, low carbonated, oily texture. Taste is fruity, honey, very sweet, balanced. Alcohol present, but seems to have a lower abv. Quite enjoyable.

hazy reddish-orange colour, no head at all; aroma of raspberry, yeast, some caramel and significant alcohol; tasteof caramel, fruity sweetness, notable bitterness, and spicy aftertaste; its amazing how perfectly the 15,2% ABV is hidden;despite the lack of carbonation, this beer is excellent

KennethArd (526) - Odense, DENMARK - APR 7, 2013
Sour aroma and the taste is both sour and sweet. Firstly taste like caramel but then sour in the end. The malty character and plenty of hops beautifully disguises the high alcohol of 15%.

Bam! The nose hits you in the face with loads of orange juice, honeydew melon and candy. Pours a slightly hazy amber with a fluffy, firm head. The flavour is a little bit crazy - yes, its strong, yes, it has a certain cloyingness, and yes, its slightly thick and soupy but bottom line its fresh, like fruit salad juice spiked with a fine barley wine. 15%? Really?!? This beer is a goddamn revelation. I like. I really like.
