5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
One of the most interesting beer in the last years..
It’s very good with cheese and with its complex spicy and great aromatic structure it could be used, as the official drink, in place of a great wine, for a 5 star meat or fish menu, with truffles, fois gras and venison or with smoked salmon and sushi.
It’s the new trappist style, corrected and reviewed, in a spicy, but always natural way.
Along side with Le Baladin Wayan it’s the greatest flavour of italian Brewery and one of the best in Europe.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle at DOC Melbourne. Great yeasty beer, well balanced. Aromas of caramel, honey, citrus, bread. Taste is sweet, sour, and bitter; well balanced, and very long. Palate is creamy, full bodied. Yellow, cloudy, with a frothy head.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a 750ml corked and capped brown bottle (nice packing like all the beers from this brewery). This is a decent attempt to emulate a Belgian stye strong golden ale of which Duvel is the benchmark. Appearance is clear bright yellow with a large dense white head that provides a decent lace. Nose has honey, grains, straw, citrus fruits (oranges mainly), bread, earthy yeast and a hint of peppery spices. Flavours are dry and bittersweet with a subtle orangey and leafy presence. Quite an astringent alcoholic dry finish. Medium to full body with lively mouthfeel.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
train station bottle rating. dense and cloudy dark honey colored body with a salt and pepper speckled tan head. bottle-conditioned, fine-bubbled carbonation. nose is powdery citrus, minerally silt/clay and oil-covered candy sugar along with some dried herb character. frothy and dense texture - chewy with an oily finish. zesty hops and syrupy sugar meld with an herbal spiced character (just yeast or added? not sure). weighty and dense malt, spice level is perfect for the density of this beer and the yeast is lovingly soft while still appearing zesty and spicy (lemon, anise, coriander). another inventive and creative italian take on a belgian-style. great stuff.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours hazy gold with a fading head.
Nose shows banana, soft cinnamon, caramel, bready malt, doughy yeast. Enticing.
Flavours focus on the malt - caramel, bready malt, doughy yeast, banana. Also some booze.
A bit too much carbonation.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appena aperta la bottiglia si è liberata un’intensa nuvola che sprigiona un aroma maltato, con evidenti sentori di agrumi e di pesca. Al palato si presenta secca, dolce, con un gradevole rivestimento amaro, dovuto forse più al curaçao che al luppolo.

Bottle shared by the Kernel crew - cheers guys! Light haze on this gold beer. Little white head. Light palate, a little soft. Fine carbonation. A little brandy like alcohol but overall well hidden. Tiny bit of orange hop. Semi dry finish. Mild minerals.
