In a blind tasting by BJCP trained experts, this beer rated


Elevation Beer Company Signal de Botrange

Aroma: “Strong hints of white grape, with a slight tannin and dry oak, but very subtle. Apple-caramel pie and fresh apple juice complement clove and banana. Some alcohol on the nose and a nice funk, but delicate.”

Flavor: “A dry wine-like finish, with white grape, peach, lemon, and slight orange fruit notes present. Delicate taste, with some alcohol, but the carbonation helps to dry the beer. The malt sweetness counters the fruit, and the very slight funk provides further balance.”

Overall: “If you like wine and are getting into beer, this would be a great place to start. Not too sweet, but balanced and a grape flavor. Tastes like apple pie and white wine all the way through.”
