L’originale sperimentazione nell’utilizzo della sapa da vitigni autoctoni iniziata da Nicola Perra con il Cannonau per la sua pluripremiata BB10 e proseguita con il Nasco per l’elegante BB Evò, sa raggiungere punte di assoluta finezza olfattivo-gustativa con questa BB9, caratterizzata dalla sapa da uva Malvasia (2%).

Oranjekleurig bier met een beige schuimkraag. Aroma: karamel, matig hoppig, witte druif. Smaak: zwaar zoet met lichte bitterheid die goed aanhoudt. Mondgevoel is ruim met zachte koolzuur en zoetige afdronk.

PINT tasting. Not a very nice aroma, glue like. Opaque golden, lacing white foam. Mainly a sweet taste, looks like the spirit has gone from this beer. Alcohol is there, also some oak wood notes. (Arnhem 201512)

Color arancio, intenso profumo di frutta, ha corpo medio, e sono evidenti al palato:caramello, frutta, alcol e un po’ di arancio. Finale piuttosto secco. Non male ma mi sarei aspettato di più da una birra di questa categoria e prezzo.

Vighals (2932) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - JUL 23, 2015
Gylden brun noe tåkete med kremete beige skum. Lukter mandel, noe fersken og fudge. Fyldig i smak, alkohol og parfyme. Skarp lang bitterhet, mot drueskall og sitrusskall.

750. At Belgrade tasting, thanks ippopotamo36! Hazed orange, lacing foam. Good appearance, pretty beer. Caramel malts and alcohol sweetness. A lighter bodied barley wine, more sweet and bright, I imagine from the Malvasia addition. Very interesting and a perfect cap to our very nice tasting.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 3, 2013
Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of fiulijn. Pours a cloudy opaque golden with a white head. Very odd perfumey bonbonish aroma – interesting though. Fairly rich body, quite some fruit but also annoying phenols. Ends dry with some biiterness. Probably could’ve been great with a different yeast. (let’s ban Belgian yeast and nasty phenols!) 230213

Bottle at Alex. Hazy orange coloured with a medium sized off-white head. Sweet and fruity aroma of caramel, dried fruits and vanilla. Sweet and fruity flavour of hops and grass with notes of pine needles. Fruity finish.

Bottle from BQ, Milan
Cloudy deep blond color with compact head. Initially the aroma is fresh and fruity, then it gets a more yeasty trace. Good body strength; semi-sweet flavor, with underlying fruitiness; unfortunately the yeast is too strong, giving some vegetable touch too; also, the alcohol is more evident than expected.
The grape doesn’t provide enough. Confused.
