I would give this beverage the lowest possible rating. It tasted much like a six dollar vodka. It occurs to me that perhaps there is a producer here in the states that is hoodwinking the distributors and faking the label because the product that I just purchased from a liquor store that I trust, is not palatable.

Brewmaster's Notes - Aged in large oak casks and refermented in the bottle, Calabaza Blanca is a Belgian Biere Blanche. Spiced with orange peel and corriander, you'll find it refreshingly tart, with a wonderfully dry finish. 4.8% ABV.

Brewmaster's Notes - An artisan farmhouse ale that is golden, naturally cloudy, bottle conditioned and dry hopped for a perfectly refreshing balance of spicy malts, hops and yeast. 4.5% ABV.

Brewmaster's Notes - An artisan amber ale brewed in the Flanders tradition. Deep amber with earthy caramel, spice, and sour fruit notes developed through natural barrel aging. Unfiltered, unpasteurized and blended from barrels ranging in age from two to ten months. 7.2% ABV.

A Bordeaux classification, first implemented in the 1800s but since fallen from use, has been revived by a group of winemakers in the Medoc. In 1994, the term cru artisan was once again recognised by the European Union and the French government, issuing the terms of a new classification in. Under the terms, potential cru artisan wines had to be tasted and their estates evaluated by a jury of 11 wine professionals. The process was hampered by the turbulent court debate surrounding the re-classification of the crus bourgeois. In October , a local tribunal had heard a similarly-composed jury of evaluators accused of being impartial. On 11 January, however, the new growth was approved by the French government, giving cru artisan status to 44 out of 59 producers. Grapes: 60 % Merlot 40 % Cabernet Sauvignon Vinification: Traditional vinification , aged for 18 months in oak barrels Taste: This wine shows aromas of ripe figs, spice and toasty oak with a round and silky palate feel. An elegantly structured wine with good length on the finish. Serve: Roast and grilled meats, game, stews and mushroom based dishes. A classic with roast lamb. Also delicious with cheese.

Brilliant amber color. Aromas of toasted whole grain raisin bread and delicate spice are very pleasant and follow through on a very soft, and silky entry to a fruity-yet-dry medium body with a melange
