3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bottle. Pours hazy yellow with a ton of suspended yeast. Very yeasty on the nose with tons of spice and stone fruit. There’s a boozy edge in there too. Stone fruit dominates the tastes with some spice and dough. It’s slightly sweet with a medium body and lively carbonation.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
The Belgian ale pours lemon cloudy and thick with a big beautiful bubbly white head. The aroma is like a fresh spring morning with light fresh fruits (yellow as on the label is stated) and light herb notes. The flavors of light fruits, apricots and peaches as labeled, are subtly noted on this delicious refreshing ale. The light flavors of a Belgian Tripel or Strong ale come through so smooth on the palate, well done Italy, in my personal opinion.
