Ale in Belgian Strong Golden Ale style.Orange coloured. On the nose, it features caramel notes followed by interesting citrus, yellow fruit and tropical fruit scents, deriving from the use of New Zealand hopper. In the mouth, it has a neat fruity apricot and pineapple taste followed by a slight bitter taste. 16°

Rastacouere (6161) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 7, 2007
A gentle creamy white head covers the hazy golden hue. Quite fresh aromas! I enjoy that. A finely honeyed nose with grainy and cerealic maltiness. Bright-flavoured in mouth. On the other hand, its hop is not the best one out there, timid, lightly floral and a bit salty or I’m mixing up with the gentle minerally nature. Considerably sweet mouth presence though in a bready way rather than the honey that was hinted at. Soft palate, medium bodied, moderate carbonation. Pleasant and tripel reminiscent.

larsga (6809) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 28, 2007
Small frothy white head. Hazy yellow body. Perfumy earthy hoppy pea aroma with malty notes. Dry perfumy mealy papery yeasty taste. Weak earthy egg-like aftertaste. Balanced and harmonic, but didn’t really like the aftertaste. (0.3l draft at Isola della Birra, Milan.)

On tap in Milan. Pineapple, banaa, marzipan and toffee are elements I can identify in this lovely beer. It is a bit to murky for a blond, it looks like broth, actually, so maybe a face lift could be in order to make the appearance be as good as the flavour.

JorisPPattyn (8643) - Ursel, BELGIUM - NOV 20, 2006
Draught Good dense head, yellowish coloured; pale orange beer. Nose of wet dog, old Wallonian houses’ aroma (sorry) but then I get some hops and sweet aniseed grains. Taste is rosewater, sweet almonds and some light malts, leaving a lot of restsweetness, ending spot-on with quinces’ jelly. Very slick, sugar-filled. Aftertaste gets some peppery, lingering flavour. It’s sweet, but not cloying. The sweetness is intentional, and it is nowhere boring.

Dorqui (2150) - Brescia, ITALY - DEC 6, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2007 Draught at the brewpub. Orange clearly color, lightly hazy. Not much bubbly with a compact and sufficiently long-lasting foam. Light aroma with notes of fruit like oranges and sugared, much cake. Amazingly light taste, insufficient perceived alcohol. Light bitter on a sweetish and sugary final.

CEZ (406) - Milano, ITALY - DEC 2, 2005
[on tap. dec 2005] Amber color, medium-sized white head. Caramel and orange in the aroma. Rather similar in overall character and taste to the regular "Lambrate" ale, only with a golden color. Candied fruit, orange, flowery notes. Very drinkable despite the7% ABV, medium-bodied, rather good balance (sweet but not syrupy).

This beer was a bit heavy on the malts for me and ended up being too sweet for my tastes, but I respect the different texture from this beer. While the nose and aftertaste was all malts, the tongue was almost a bit hoppy -- nice! 7% didn’t hurt either. Nice job, Lambrate, bring more good beer to Milan.

Hazy golden color. Nice malt and hop aroma. Good sweet body, malty; lightly fruity (banana).
