COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Lets us introduce Win Bic. Win Bic is a new friend in the X-mas family from Mikkeller.
Its a blended Spontan Ale and Saison, It is 6,0% abv, It is awesome and it comes in a magnum bottle. Welcome Win Bic.
The Tasting panel Said:
Cloudy light orange with a fine foamy thick white head
Aroma A mild spicy impression with acidic green apples, cloves and a sweetness as from dried apricots. We also find some bitterness as from lemon peel and a lactic touch. You clearly sense the saison notes as white pepper and mild various spices.
The taste blasts out the saison expressions in the beginning and we think of oxidated apples as you find in certain ciders after that you get the lactic and sour impression that appears very refreshing and drinkable. A freshness topped with dry impressions of the barrels. You feel like another sip.
The mouth feel is not as carbonated and fizzy as in most of Mikkellers spontan beers. The finish is very dry with a touchy bitterness that again reminds of citric peel. For some this citric bitterness could get too much.

Lambic mixed with saison!? Im intrigued. Little foam. Amber cloudy color. Citrus aroma with a hint of earthy tones. Sour taste as in geuze. Still missing something. Still an interesting mix of styles worth to try out.

Korcz (3134) - Warsaw, POLAND - MAR 20, 2017
Zdecydowanie wyższa kwasowość niż w świeżym, wypada bardzo lambikowo, saisona tu bardzo niewiele. Fajne bretty w aromacie.

750mL bottle. Pours hazy gold with a fluffy white head. Aroma is earth, grapes, some lemon, funky yeast, pepper, and a touch of clove. The aroma is very pleasant but doesnt pop as much as it should; stays too subtle. Taste is citrus, sour apple, white grapes, a little bit of lemon, lactic acid, earth, pepper, yeast, and minerals. Dry finish with lasting pepper. Tart and earthy. Medium body. Average carbonation. Crisp mouthfeel.
