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.

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.

Draft @ Brassigaume 2012. My favourite beer of the festival. Hazy orange, bubbly white head. Smell is a sweet lovely concoction of caramel, sugar, syrup, prune jam, flowers, solid malt base, some very sweet strong liquor feel to it. Sweet caramel, malt base, light prune jam, sweet strong liquor, touch pine resin, tropical fruits, mango, creamy, caramel apples. Softer carb. light oozy body – lovely.

Assaggiata alla spina al CAVALLINO ALATO di Asti. Buona birra. Profumo di malto e frolla al naso. Bella bocca, succulenta con una buona spinta etilica mai stucchevole con note dolci e tanta pasticceria. Il finale non e’ amarissimo e lascia la bocca asciutta.

Fashawn (369) - Montesarchio, ITALY - JAN 13, 2015
Gran bella Birra. Apprezzo molto l insieme. Arancio ambrata, poca schiuma abbastanza fine e cremosa. Odore di caramello,biscotto al burro e frutta esotica. In bocca è squisitamente dolce con biscottino, scorza di pane caramello, bilanciati da un finale secco e astringente, in cui emerge un po’ del luppolo adoperato e soprattutto la presenza alcolica, che non disturba mai ma anzi asciuga la bocca. Buonissima birra.

Draft @ Brassigaume 2012. By far, one of the most outstanding Italian beers that day which does not diminish the overall quality of all the beers present at Brassigaume. Orangée léger trouble, col blanc léger. Arôme donne un profile agréable de grains orge très prenant quasi sur des notes rappelant l’apple brandy malgré que cette bière n’est pas âgée en fût. Palais est sucré avec une note lourde mais agréable de pomme caramel très fraîche, collant aux lèvres, pas mal de houblons pour un palais réchauffant, beau profile de grains et une bière qui pour moi semble avoir le profile d’un murissage en barrique. Amertume en retrait et contribuant à un côté houblonné très fruité frais rajoutant une belle dimension à cette bière.

Una birra splendida, importante, molta sostanza e un buon equilibrio tra luppoli e malti.

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.

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
