4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
It’s kind of like a fine Belgian tripel with caramel and toffee maltiness added. Cloudy deep amber, no head. Nose is balanced burnt sugar, caramel, and fine hops. Upon drinking is initially sweet, but the light mouthfeel and strong carbonation prevent it from being cloying and the flavor quickly withdraws into a balance of mild bitterness and light candy-like sweetness. Aromas are subtle - a bit of flowers and apricots, good amount of caramel and toffee, almost a touch of buttery savorness in the finish coupled with candi sugar and warming alcohol. Very nice and subtle, suitable for a diversity of occasions.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nez : une belle odeur de pâte à pain, de blé, très chaleureuse avec un fond houblonné très rafraîchissant.
En bouche : le pain s’efface pour faire place à un bel arôme caramel. Le houblon part sur des agrumes genre orange/pamplemousse. Le tout présente un superbe équilibre, une jolie rondeur, malgré une présence un peu trop prononcée de l’alcool par rapport à sa finesse.

Kompleks, mørk aroma med mye malt og rosin. Frisk og søt, kremete i munnen med god balanse og konsentrasjon.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Opaque dark gold, medium white head. Dark fruit and some nuts on the nose. Medium body, delightfully balanced flavour - all is in order. Roasty, nutty notes with more of that dark fruit. Overall - delightful, if a bit overcarbonated.

Bottled. Pours hazy amber with a small off-white head. Aroma of brown sugar, dark fruit notes, a little citrus and marzipan, yest and caramel. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry and slightly bitter. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation. A nice Ale.🌟🌟🌟

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle sample from a tasting backlog notes. Pours a hazy orange amber color with a thin off white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet malts, tart apples, citrus, hint of apricots, slight floral hops, only the lightest bitterness, interesting beer, but not something I would seek out.

The description positions this beer beautifully and so I don’t believe I need to add to it. The real triumph was the food match, made by my esteemed company, the writer Geoff Griggs and his wonderful wife Pip. I cooked a slow-roasted lamb shoulder in a ragout of tomato, garlic, cinnamon, olives and ale. I had expect the best match to be an innocuous lager that would cut through the fat of the lamb, but my friends put on this excellent ale whose sweetness set off the savoury of the lamb wonderfully well. A memorable ale for this reason.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle; pours a cloudy caramel color with a tan head; sweet aroma of caramel, fruits, yeast, and bit of malt; taste is sweet with caramel, yeast, fruits, and a touch of syrup; short dry finish with a hint of spice; while the beer is sweet it is not at all over powering and very drinkable; nice Belgian

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Mahogany color, cloudy, with floating crumbs. Some sourness in the aroma, wine, wooden barrel, a bit boozy. Taste is bready, fruity, hints of figs (luckily not that intense). Full body, soft carbonation. Sweet dark fruit finish. Not bad.

Pienamente in stile, manca forse un po’ di personalizzazione e sentori al naso
