3.9/5  rDev -6.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

Poured from bottle into a chalice glass

Appearance – The beer pours a slightly darker amber color with a small half finger or less white head. The head fades very quickly leaving only a spotty level of lace on the side of the glass.

Smell – The aroma is biggest of a white grape smell mixed with a good deal of alcohol. This gives it a very white wine like smell overall. Unlike wine however, other subtle aromas of an earthy hop and some spicy smells of pepper and clove are mixed within giving it a slightly boozy and Belgian like wine smell overall.

Taste – The taste begins mainly of a mix of a grapy and malty flavor initially. There are some flavors of an apple and cherry flavor mixed with these with the start of the taste, which seem to fade as the taste advances more to the middle and the end. Along with the dwindling of the cherry and apple, the breadiness of the beer lessens, producing a more dry and crisp flavor on the tongue. While all these flavors lose ground, the grapy flavor grows quite a bit stronger in taste and are joined by flavors of a more tanniny bitterness as well as flavors of alcohol. These flavors give the brew a more white wine like flavor which is combined with some flavor of a pepper and spicy nature as well as some earthy and pine hop tastes. In the end the combination of flavors produces a crisp spiced and hopped wine like flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel- The body of the brew is on the thinner side for a brew of 10 % abv with a carbonation level that is average to slightly above average. The body really suits the wine like flavors as well as the hop flavors nicely to produce a crisp champagne like feel, all the while keeping it a very drinkable brew even with all its alcohol and boozy tastes.

Overall – A rather boozy and crisp quad with a whole lot of sparkling wine like characteristic. I was actually originally expecting something with more dark fruit flavors, so this was quite a surprise. It was rather interesting and nice and is certainly worth a try, although I think it is not really my thing ,and I think there are tastier quads out there.

Summer night in Sweden with a 750 ml bottle in the garden. This is love.
Do think the big bottle has much more taste and nose
If you want this and if you are in Scandinavia do make a stop in Denmark were the price is "very low" ~ 5 USD at most supermarkets.
