The brew is clear light golden, a white nice head leaving little lacing but having good curtains.

Smelling of sweet and sour fresh grapes and lime, some oak notes as well.

Tasting of brown sugar and dextrose, white vinous notes and some grape peel bitterness.

A light carbonation, small foamy bubbles, soft but fresh texture, a medium body and slightly dry finish.

A light and fresh alternative to sparkling white wine, does not feel like 10.1%. Bottle 52 of 200, thx to bark.

The colour is pale straw yellow (4 EBC), the liquid clear. The low white head leaves no lacing.

The smell is phenolic with some yeasty flavours. Distinct dry notes of dry Champagne, vanilla and sour hints of dry white wine. Some smooth alcohol.

The taste is very smooth and semi-dry. Vanilla, Extremely clean and elegant. Notes of Champagne and fine apple juice. The aftertaste is clean and dry.

The carbonation is strong, the liquid light.

A well crafted alternative to sparkling dry wine. One of the cleanest beers I have had. Would be a perfect aperitif.
