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.

Bottled. A hazy dark amber beer with a thin yellowish head. The aroma has notes of hops, malt, caramel, and lemons. The flavor is sweet with notes of caramel soup, malt, alcohol, and citrusy hops, leading to a dry, bitter, and alcoholic finish. Thanks yespr for sharing.

Bottle 33 cl. Courtesy of yespr. Pours a hazy amber with an off-white head. That lovely coconut smell of Sorachi Ace dominate the nose. Rich body, low carbonation, lots of caramel and exotic fruits - very complex. Rich alcoholic finish. Lovely - my first Sorachi Ace Barley Wine. 200612

Billynomates solo hotel tasting. Hazy gold - amber beer, tidy pale cream colour head. Palate is airy and slightly soft. Modest fine carbonation. Sweetish malts, dry. Good Sorachi floral lemon cream. Very mild herb. Semi dry finish shows some spice. Nice beer but it’s more of a Sorachi IIPA than a Barleywine.

Hazy amber color; medium head. Nice aroma, malty and hoppy, a bit fruity, light wood and vanilla. Good malty flavor, full bodied, with nice sweetness, and pungent hopping, helped by some alcohol presence too.
Very good. Drink it fresh.
