Golden color and creamy white load and foam, the Toccadib˛ reminds us once a golden strong ale. In the nose, is clean and dry with pronounced alcoholic sensations that soon evaporate leaving a magnificent triumph of fruity peach and apricot syrup that is well balanced with hints of hops flavoring reminiscent of the chives. In the palate, announced the sensation of "warming" is well contrasted by bold dryness that gives us a spicy aftertaste, clean and sharp that leads us, despite the strong alcohol content, just a second glass to be desired. More attentive the taster will not escape an unusual but pleasant hint of amaretto. A table can be combined perfectly with white meat, but may surprise and degrease elaborate dishes of game, fight fat cheeses with long ripening prove irresistible tarts and fruit syrup or amaretti. Ingredients: water, barley malt, hops, yeast, spices. Serving temperature: 10 ░ -12 ░ C

Bottle from Frank Smithĺs. Pours turbid dark straw golden with fuzzy off-white head. Nose is fruity, with tangerine, honey, some spicy hops...sweet aroma. Tastes rock sugary malty, with a sweetness reminding me of honey-dipped oranges, some florals and spice, and a medium palate heft. Gets a bot hot late.

Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - JUL 21, 2009
750 ml bottle. An unclear deep golden beer with a medium sized and quite persistent white head. The aroma is well balnced between malt, hops and yeast and has notes of fruits (lemon, peach), spices, herbs, sugar and a hint of alcohol. The flavour is quite sweet, with light acidity. Perhaps more spicy than the aroma and again fruity. Clean. Medium to full body, lively carbonation, dry long finisgh with medium bitterness, some alcohol is felt. Well made Belgian style ale, though you can imagine that this beer is not brewed in Belgium. Overall very good.

750ml bottle @ AL REFETTORIO, Sardinia. Hazy orange body with a small, dense, white head. Light malty aroma with some lemon. Flavor is refreshing, light malty, some orange fruitiness, yeast, spices, a sharp bitterness and hint of alcohol. Very nice, refreshing and tasty in a hot summer day, not particular complex but tru to its style. Enjoyed this a lot after a week with mostly boring lagers.

Scauca (490) - Lovere, ITALY - APR 17, 2009
Hazy golden with a thick creamy lasting head. Nose is subtle, a bit spoiled by a sulphur note, but spicy and a bit fruity nevertheless. Flavour starts with sweet honey, yellow fruits toward a beautiful dry slightly bitter end.

RollinHard (1024) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - APR 5, 2009
I forgot to note the appearance of a lot of beers. Anyway, aroma of tart grain, coriander,spice, hay, orange, and lemon. Tastes sweeter with grass, lemon, white chocolate, and wheat. Finishes with citrus wheat and lingering breadcrust. Medium bodied and easy going.
