3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: The body is a beautiful dark brown, it appears clear but it’s hard to tell, there is almost no head, just a thin tan head with poor retention.
Aroma: The aroma is very heavy on oak, very woody, light bourbon notes, hints of vanilla, almost all barrel here, but there’s some dark fruits as well, grapes come to mind.
Taste: This is dominated by dark fruits, black cherries, grapes, very wine-like. The barrel notes are very tame compared to the aroma, oak is throughout with some bourbon and light vanilla on the finish, warming alcohol goes down the throat.
Palate: Thick and very lightly carbonated.
Overall: This is very winey and I like it, this is complex and a very good sipper, my biggest gripe with this is the price and getting the wax off. I have another bottle I’ll age for a while and see how it turns out.
Bottle, as "Saule". Light brown color with beige head. Aroma pops with bourbon and toffee, follows with fudge and dried fruits, mostly dates. Taste has sweet fruity notes like dates and figs, bourbon, brown sugar and some booze. Medium body and carbonation. Complex, tasty and a bit boozy. Pallleon (470) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 4, 2017
Homályos barna szín, gyorsan eltűnő hab. Cukros, bourbonos aroma. Erdei gyümölcsös, vaníliás, bourbonos ízvilág. Ütős. Goodgrief (2059) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - OCT 23, 2017
On tap at Pinocchio's as "Saule". Dark tea like color. Lots of grains of yeasties. Like liquid brown sugar in bourbon. Rich. Glad the glass was small, even though it's tasty. Mariox (337) - Warsaw, POLAND - OCT 14, 2017
(The bruery Saule) W aromacie świetne ciemne owoce, słodowo-karmelowa słodycz. W smaku dość słodkie z bardzo fajnym finiszem. Alkohol dobrze ukryty jak na voltage. Całkiem treściwe. Bardzo fajne piwo. Oakes (18828) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 12, 2017
Light brown. Very sweet, honey, bourbons, sticky, big boozy finish, too.A bit too simple for a beer so big, and certainly not hitting the old ale character.
