COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - APR 11, 2008
Hazy/cloudy golden color with a moderate off-white head. Light wheat and spice aromas. Some hints of light fruit and mild citrus as well. Flavors are quite spicy. Mild pear and apples, mix with nutmeg and cinnamon. Alcohol also add quite a spice element. It shows a bit too much strength and not enough depth.

fiulijn (15060) - 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.

JorisPPattyn (8007) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JAN 21, 2007
Pale orange-yellow beer, with a yellowish head. Lactic acid, a bit of wood, aroma of apples, and also some fusels. In the taste, diacetyl joins the fusels, malts, and some powerful alcohol. Well bodied (which sits bad on a tripel), alcoholwarming, slick & even oily. Rather poor, faulted beer which leans heavily on its alcoholcontent.
