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

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.

Thanks to JK! Clear gold color with a large head. Wheaty aroma and some light general spice character. Very perfumy taste. Big wheat flavor. Dry finish.

A me mi è proprio piaciuta; bevuta a Sarezzano, alla Locanda del Grue, la migliore delle tre Barley assaggiate (in compagnia del simpaticissimo birraio).

Carried home from Italy, April 2009, where I bought it at Johnny’s Off License in Rome, and shared June 2011. Very nice, opaque bright orange color. A great looking beer. Big, rocky, pillow-like, white head. Light sweet with yeast, strong earthy quality with dirt and grass. Very light spice. A good beer.

Bella carbonatazione con una scriuma lieve ma molto sottile,aromi agrumati e alcolici che ritornano in bocca insieme ad un amaro bilanciato
