COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Birra in stile Barley Wine adatta all’invecchiamento.
Per questa ricetta viene utilizzato un luppolo giapponese (Sorachi Ace) e un solo malto (Pale). La bollitura prolungata conferisce aromi caramellati e permette di ottenere un mosto molto concentrato.

kraddel (3132) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - AUG 22, 2014
Bottle shared with Belgbeergeek Pours clear, dark orange , no real head . Smell is sweet, honey, fruity ( peaches ) Not much carbo . Taste is peaches , very much peaches, with some caramel touch . No sign of ANY ABV , drinks like its fruitjuice, but its 11 percent . that earns some respect, but tastewise, this is nothing for me . At all .

jookos (2161) - FINLAND - AUG 14, 2014
Bottle. Orange, hazy, pretty much no head. Nose is sweet, malty, vanilla peachy. Sort of milky. full bodied, sweet, bit oily, but bitter. Caramel gooey, butterscotchs. Horribly caramel sweety, with some hotness shining through. This is too sweet, too sticky. Too light caramelly for a barley wine too. IMHO a lot wrong here. More like a malt liquor. Even real chilled it tastes like boozed up cookie dough. But doesn’t feel bulky or tasteless in any way though.

olio (6195) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 24, 2014
33 cl bottle.
Pours clear orange color with a small head. Very sweet fruity aroma, some slight strawberry notes as well as some caramel malts. Fruits and strawberries on the flavor as well, some gluish notes and alcohol. Quite heavy thick palate, lingering sweet fruity aftertaste. Some people might like this but I’m not one of them, this is not pleasant at all, not sure if I can finish this bottle..

KatL80 (17) - Britton, Michigan, USA - MAY 28, 2014
Pours dark copper with small head. Aroma is rich, sweet, with tropical fruit, toffee, floral notes. Beer has grown significantly in six months since purchase, now showing balanced, complex coconut, herbal, fruit, honey tones. Flavor opens as beer aerates, reminds me of a wine. Growth in bottle is remarkable, will be laying some down.

BlowOffTube (472) - Michigan, USA - FEB 11, 2014
Pours an orangish with no head. Some hop floaties. Some cherry and apple funk on the nose. Coconut milk, caramel, fruity sweetness. Zero to light carbonation and medium body which is where this got marked down a few notches. Other than that this was enjoyable.

lusikka (6248) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 19, 2013
330 ml bottle.
Pours a dark copper colour with a small, almost non-existent head. Aroma is very sweet with English toffee, pineapple, bubblegum and some perfume. Flavour of sweet caramel malts, very strong coconut notes, sweet juicy pineapple, some herbal notes and honey. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and low carbonation. Finishes very sweet, warming and malty. Too sweet and I don’t like the coconut notes here. No coconut in my beer, please.

Color: amber beer with small carbonization and good medium white foam. Smell: malt, bread, nuts and small hoppy presence. Taste: good equilibrium, really drinkable with malt and bread. Aftertaste: malt.
