BB 02.15. Hazy golden yellow beer, white head. Nose is fruity, warm malt/booze notes, fermented apple, vague hops. Flavor is caramel, fruit, sugar, malt. Finish is herbally bitter, lots of soft caramel notes, apples, sugar. Lingering alchol, apples, caramel and bitterness. Weird, but in a good way.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Blond body, nice head. Lots of marzipan, light sweet cake, herbal (English?) hops, very refined and appealing. Fine but prominent bubble, sipping very nice indeed. Not too sweet, but very fulfilling for a cold day. Interesting brew, very enjoyable. (75cl bottle from QV.ID)

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Alla spina. Ale bionda, discretamente robusta, con sentori di malto, caramello e lievito. Quasi una tripel, di buon corpo e ben persistente, sono curioso di provarla in bottiglia.

Pours hazy to murky golden amber with tall, frothy white head. Aroma of yeast, honey, citrus, tropical fruit. Taste is sweet, yeast and honey, with a boozy sweet finish. Light to medium full body with soft carbonation.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Buona, leggermente caramellizzata ma con il tocco tipico di de Rulles. Secondo me da non bere troppo fresca.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, started at 9C, liked it more as it warmed a little. Clear amber with a large white head that never disappears. Interesting aroma with slightly toasted malt and lots of fruit - dried, ripe, under-ripe; citrus, stone (apricots, sugar plums), tropical, pears. Some baldly sugary booze too. A big, fat, complex/possibly confused noseful. And then it’s a lot lighter-bodied than expected, although it’s certainly still sweet. I’ll withdraw "baldly" from "sugary booze" too. Medium low carbonation is very nice - just enough to lighten and no more. Sweet hay and some toasted notes, caramelized banana, intense citrus that seems almost sour, some herbs. Firm bitterness. Interesting beer - I don’t really understand how it’s so characterful despite being really very clean.
