COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Golden color and creamy white load and foam, the Toccadibò 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

willblake (2652) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - NOV 30, 2008
20081030 750ml bottle Hazy golden with lasting, small, sticky, white head. Yeasty aromas are a bit phenolic, sweet candy, circus peanut, coconut. Flavor has hints of butterscotch (not diacetyl-like), grassy, golden raisin, biting spice on finish from earthy hops. Hefty body and lingering flavor. These Italian beers are too expensive.

fiulijn (14549) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 5, 2008
Bottle from Decanter, Milan
The color is light amber, too cloudy, but with thin perlage, creamy head and nice lace. It has a good aroma of Belgian yeast in the front, followed by traces of sugar. It has a good body strength, smooth malt flavor, light residual sweetness, spicy (the character of the yeast); unfortunately there are also some vegetable traces from the fermentation or maturation process, getting more evident at the end. The final is reasonably bitter and shows some of the alcohol content. Unrefined.

VTHopHead (1511) - Barre, Vermont, USA - SEP 21, 2008
750ml - Poured a slightly cloudy darkish amber in color with a small white head that quickly faded to a thin rim around the beer. Aroma was more than slightly skunky (disappointing!), slightly malty and sweet. Flavor was also quite skunky and disappointing (considering what I paid for this crap). SKUNK is to much to be ignored...it is the dominant characteristic of the beer... yuck! Quite bad...

This is a really nice beer. Don’t know if it’s a triple. For sure, I would say that it’s a unique, addictive golden ale that defines the difference between complex and complicated. Basically, it all comes down to balance. There’s quite a few distinct flavors, yet there’s no sense of overcrowding the tongue. I get a quick blast of ephemeral spice, toasty malts, sharp cheddar cheese (!), grass, and a bit of sour fruit. All that’s well and good, but it’s important to note that it’s the overall balance and the nice, watery space between flavors that distinguishes this beer from the vast majority of big golden 750’s. Try it.

Courtesy of argo0. Very cloudy pale body with a medium white head. Hoppy nose with cotton candy, some honey and golden fruits. The flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter with golden raisins, caramel, cotton candy, honey and bandaid. Medium body is round with moderate carbonation, slightly medicinal finish.

750mL bottle, courtesy of argo0. Thanks, Aaron! Pours a hazy, bold golden color; white head with medium-bubbled lacing. Lots of honey, yeastiness, and esters in the aroma; singular, honey-laden nose. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: honey, toasty malts, white pepper and soft spicing; an odd, messy tripel with a solid honey core; reasonably tasty stuff, but singular overall. Medium finish: honey, toasty and sugary malts.

Bottle. Appearence is a near perfect light golden with a full head. Aromas hint of flowers, spice, polish and light fruits. Flavor hints of fruits and polish. A fairly good ale.
