kraddel (7288) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - FEB 10, 2017
Bottle at beerlovers bar. Pours dark amber. Good white head. Smell is sweet, very fruity. Taste is very sweet ( sugar ? ) fruity, very full. Nice lasting , sweet finish. Dont get the usual raisin-type tastes. It comes across a bit weird ( yet not off ) in the beginning , but it makes up for that in the aftertaste. Decent mf and carbo.

Erasmus_ro (2770) - Alabama, USA - FEB 10, 2017
Tap @ Arendsnest, Amsterdam, 05/02/17. Pours a dark red with a beige head. Aroma is banana, caramel. Those chewy, banana candies with a white mush inside that were sold at Finnish kiosks in the late 80s, early 90s. Taste is plentiful and packs a punch. Banana, banana caramel again. It is very strong. Dried fruit, caramel, rather sweet. Slightly boozy. Sticky.

Taste is moderate sweet and bitter, lots of alcohol, raisin, malts, some hops towards the end, warming alcohol, raisin and hoppy bitterness in the aftertaste. Not bad.

sjorsvdg (494) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 28, 2016
Deze gerstewijn van de Bredase brouwerij Frontaal heeft aromakenmerken van cognac/vieux. Alcohol komt je ook tegemoet, maar niet op een overheersende wijze. In de smaak komt cognac terug, wat hout, vanille, rij fruit. Heel goed brouwsel.
