750 mL bottle poured into a chalice.
Appearance: Pours a dark caramel brown color. Great, 1.5-finger creamy off-white head. Decent retention, with good lacing.
Smell: Sweet malt aroma with spices, and plenty of apples and some raisins.
Taste: Lots of mulled apple cider flavor, with raisin. Leaves a sugary residue on the lips and tongue.
Mouthfeel: Very smooth, medium-bodied and creamy, with moderate (but rather too strong) carbonation.
Drinkability: Good ABV for this style. Way too sweet.
Quite a bit of a disappointment for me, as I really enjoy this style. This one, however, is just too sweet, the flavors aren't dark enough, and a bit monolithic in flavor.
Serving type: bottle

13oz draft pour at bier markt mississauga
a: deep orange/amber hue with half a finger of head
s: huge banana and vanilla up front, great stuff. hints of maraschino cherries. alcohol is present
t: a melange of bananas, maraschino cherries, and vanilla to begin with. it's sweet all around but not offensively so. nice! but what i dislike here is the alcohol presence -- it's rather strong and makes the entire tasting feel medicinal. light spice on the back-end. dry finish
m: medium body, medium carbonation
o: this beer has a lovely aroma but the flavours are all ruined by the alcohol strength
Serving type: on-tap

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.
