3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Split a 750 ml bottle. Poured a dark brown color. Aroma was light bananna, some caramel, malt, distinct Belgian yeast strain. Brown sugar, dried fruits, some grainy notes. Drinkable, but not as refreshing as I wished it could have been - no quenching here, in part also to the high carbonation. Alcohol is low enough that it’s manageable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Ale bionda e schiumosa, caramellata al naso con i classici sentori fruttati tipici del Belgio; gusto dolciastro, maltoso, rotondo e piacevole. Corpo medio, struttura robusta, effervescenza piacevole. Molto classica ma per niente banale.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 7/30/2012. Pours lightly hazy bright orange color with a 1-2 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of orange, pear, apple, white grape, apricot, light banana, clove, pepper, honey, bread, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, earthy hops, and pale malt notes; with good strength. Taste of big orange, pear, apple, white grape, apricot, light banana, clove, pepper, honey, bread, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Good amount of earthy yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of orange, pear, apple, white grape, apricot, clove, pepper, honey, bread, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice complexity and robustness of fruity/spicy yeast, earthy hops, and pale malt sweetness; with a nice crisp malt/yeast balance and minimal cloying flavors after the finish. There is a lightly astringent flavor note appearing after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and slightly bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very good Belgian strong pale ale. All around good complexity and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, earthy hops, and pale malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink for the ABV. A nicely enjoyable offering.

Bottiglia 75 CL. Colore giallo paglierino torbida, buon cappello di schiuma mediamente persistente, aroma maltato e floreale in perfetto stile belgian ale, al palato si sentono parecchio le note maltate e agrumate. Niente male.
