2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
It looks a chestnut colour, small bit of foam that’s gone quickly.
The smell is nice. Fruity with hints of a mild tartness.
The taste is of the orange peel that’s kinda bitter, again a hint of tartness. The most surprising thing is how well the abv is hidden.
Light bodied with light carbonation.
Pretty average brew at way above average price.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Another Very interesting beer By these guys. Appearance is a huge sick light tan head that settles down but doesn't go away, A little lace and a cloudy brown color. Aroma is very complex with balsamic vinegar, fruit, yeast malt, perfume and each time I smell it other things. Flavor is similar to aroma but not quite as complex interesting interplay between bitter sweet and tartness and has a nice dry roasted malt finish. Great body. This would be a great lunch beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle, probably from Voldby Købmandsgaard. ABV is 9.5%. Dark brown colour with floaties, moderate off-white to beige head. Pleasant aroma of malts, caramel, orange peel and raisins, hints of mild spices. Medium sweet and mildly spicy flavour, again with notes of orange peel and raisins. Very moderate hops. A quite interesting and pleasant beer, which I’ll be happy to buy again for Christmas.

Very interesting, an Italian Winter Ale. Lovely flavour, almost like a perfect brown ale. I had this on new years eve 2013 in Skagen, Denmark. Much better than campagne.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours deep brown with a thin tan head. Fruity aroma of grapes and citrus. Definite grape flavor on the palate along with dark fruits. Low hop profile. Small, energenic bubbles. Suprisingly tasty beer from Italy.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Due dita di schiuma persistente che lascia il bicchiere merlettato. Il colore é bruno
L’aroma é leggero di malto
Il sapore in bocca ha carattere personalità. Sì sente l’arancia che compensa il dolce del malto.
Il corpo è piacevolmente setoso e corretta la canonizzazione

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear dark amber with a small head. Aroma of raisins, orange liquor, vanilla, brunt sugar (candi sugar?), spice. Taste kinda sour, not nearly as sweet as the aroma or the alcohol content would suggest. Bitter-orange flavor really coming through at mid-palate.

A very smooth, great beer. Had in bottle and on tap. On tap, it’s a deep orange with a thin white head. Smells of orange peel, a bit of vanilla. Taste is very smooth, can’t taste the alcohol, with a sweet finish. In the bottle, has a more herby, spice smell, less alcohol. Taste is a bit lighter and smoother, with less alcohol, and a bit creamier. Had at La Trappe’s Italian event. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
