Šio alaus gamybai naudojamas vanduo, šviesusis miežių salyklas ir karamelinis miežių salyklas, apyniai ir alaus mielės. Be to, dedama natūrali kvapioji medžiaga, kurios komponentai yra apelsinų, anyžių, gvazdikėlių, kardamono, cinamono ir šalavijų aliejai bei ekstraktai. Karamelinis salyklas suteikia alui kiek salstelėjusį, “pilną“ skonį bei sodrią tamsią spalvą, o švelniai juntamas žolelių prieskonis suformuoja išskirtines šio alaus juslines savybes.

Natural flavoring which ingredients are the oils and extracts of orange, aniseed, cloves, cardamom, cinnamon and sage, is also added. Caramel malt gives a slightly sweet, full taste and intense dark color while gently felt herbal tincture forms execptional aroma of this beer.

Bottled, from Snekutis, Vilnius. Almost clear nut brown, rich head. Minty nutmeg aroma. Sweet with medium body and well rounded mouthfeel. Highly aromatic and carefully roasty. the minty herbs goes perfect with the light roasty malt. Low bitterness. A very interesting spice beer!

Bottled 330ml (Maxima, Vilnius, BB 11/2011)
Dark nut brown-ruby color, quicky vanishing off-white head. Aroma of sweet bun, caramel and berries. Medium-bodied, but thin palate. Clove spicey flavor, caramelly too with unclean diacetylic notes. Not very good spicey beer.

FatPhil (15796) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 17, 2011
330ml bottle (Bambalyne, Vilnius)
Super sweet super-ripe bananaey spicy, minty and clovey, sweet aroma. Like a banana caramel desert with a splash of underberg over it. Super smooth palate, soft carbonation, really lush in the mouth. Retronasals full of overripe banana. That level of ripeness normaly makes me gag, but this is lovely. Rich redy brown, small tight beige head. Lovely mellow sweet palate, spices prominant, but not dominating, a sweet dark roast backs them up , some caramel too. Finish has a lovely gentle tingle of bitter hops, which are a little papery, but quite whole. Super drinkable - asks to be sessioned.
