3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Baladin ha cercato di luppolare una birra da non luppolare. risultato.....slegare una birra che sarebbe stata buonissima. Infatti l’odore derivante dall’amarillo (in dry hopping quasi sicuramente) sovrasta il resto e rimane solo nel naso, visto che il corpo importante e i sentori caramellosi e di frutta secca (e anche di frutta sotto spirito) quindi di una dolcezza al limite della stucchevolezza dominano al palato. InZomma......

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 0.33l. Hazy orange amber color with medium creamy tan-like head, plenty of floating particles and soft visible carbonation. Aroma of caramel, dried fruits, wood, vanilla and tropical fruits. Taste starts with light sweet but rich caramel malt, follows by dried fruits and yeasty acidity, firstly medicinal then warming spicy mouthfeel and mild bitter finish. Full body, creamy texture and average carbonation in palate. Nice Belgian strong ale, still not fantastic...

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep hazy amber color, almost copper, with medium white/yellowish head, slowly disappearing. Smell is yeast, some fruits like mandarine, apricot/peach. Taste reveal more maltiness, caramel, honey. Medium carbonation.
From the name I expected more bitterness, so I suppose that the normal Super has to be very sweet.
Anyway, a good beer, enjoyable.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Amber pour, way too much yeast floating around. Aroma is very nice with caramel notes, nutty tones amd a hint of hops. Taste is killed by overabundant yeast, other than that even more malty caramel notes and american hop becomes more noticeable. A little too much booze at taste in my opinion.
