Ive been looking forward to trying this ever since i heard about it just hope it lives up to its hype and when i pop the cork its a very loud pop and white frothy head gushes out everywhere it eventually settles and pours a see through golden hue with a white frothy three finger head and some clingy lacing here and there,the aroma is very sweet with hints of barley sugar,boiled candy,,toffee and a tinge of herbal hops,it has light-medium bodied well carbonated mouthfeel and has tastes of brown sugar,boiled candy,candied pears and finishes with a slight bitter herbal hoppiness but the bitterness is clearly outweighed by the sweetness first encountered and overall to be quite honest after hearing the hype and paying the price i was definately expecting more and im glad i wasnt the first to review this brew as it clearly is borderlining on different styles with its german influence making itself known and the fact its mouthfeel is a little heavy for me to be classed as a proper BDC/BB but netherless glad ive tried it.

Thanks Heatwave33!

2011 bottle.

Pour is light orange with huge head. Massively carbonated, but Id expect that.

Smell is different for sure. I get some citrus fruits. Loads and wheat and corn, and some white whine. Strong pineapple chunk smell.

The big thing I notice is how dry it is. It reminds of Tweason'ale with its dryness. Very dry up front, with some yeast coming out very, very quickly. I get the crisp wheat as well, along with airy corn. Sweet caramel notes come real late. The more I drink, the more I get the fruity esters from the yeast as well as some sweeter caramel early.

Theres so much going on; I think its just too damn busy for me. Itd be interesting to replace Champagne with this.
