I bought this beer after its story featured in national media here in BE.
Due to Covid-19 I plugged in a fridge we hadden't used in three years. Large was my surprise when I found this bottle still in the door.
A label on the bottle neck reads "Brewed in Belgium for Stallhagen" (no indication who) and best before end 2020 (just in time!).

37 cl bottle with cork stop. Opened without painting the room.
Sniffed the bottle before pouring: smells very recognisably like red wine, but more fruity and a different acidic odour. Not very

No head whatsoever. Good carbonation through a dark orange liquid.
Still no real odour present. Faint hints of malts.
Very soft taste. Smokey caramel and berry sourness.
Aftertaste is more spiced (peper, clove, smoked wood). Becomes more "heavy" on the tongue (sweet butter).
No alcohol, no hops.

This was quite pleasable. A nice experiment. Not a current day beer. Score is based on the context.

The colour is pale pilsner-yellow, the liquid is clear. The two finger head is white and compact; it sinks slowly leaving some lacing.

The smell is sweet with notes of stable and dough, some sour notes in the background as well as honey and some fresh cut flowers. It is a bit insipid.

The taste is light. Sweet yeasty dough, hints of vanilla and some anonymous bitterness. Light to medium body. The aftertaste brings more honey-like sweetness, very mild bitterness, some spices and even more fermenting dough. The finish is all honey/honey syrup.

The carbonation is medium to mild, the mid-sized bubbles are short-lived. The liquid is light and a bit sticky.

A recreation of a beer from the early 19th century, brewed at an unknown location. Quite weak and simple.

Not really a very good beer but somewhat more of the "experience"

This beer is a clone of a beer they found on a shipwreck off the coast of Ă…land.. Overall, it is mild and malty, with very little hoppiness. Light, refreshing, with hints of fruity yeasts. not especially addictive, but an interesting brew if you ever wondered what beer actually tasted like 150 yers ago. Stallhagen even tracked down the original Belgian strain of yeast used in the original brew. Worth a try.
