3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUN 19, 2012 Bottle. The pour was a hazy golden yellow with an average sized (1-2 finger) white frothy head that reduced slowly, down to a heavy film with a large collar which possessed some excellent sheets of lacing.
The aroma was of a funky barnyard Belgian yeast and a light grain malt with notes of honey, citrus (lemon), toffee, a mild fruitiness and a slight alcohol scent.
The taste was lightly sweet with a malty citrus note in the beginning, and then became very yeasty and a bit sour with a hint of green apple and a slight peppery alcohol tinge towards the end. The flavor lasted an average duration following the swallow, with a nice mild fruity funky yeast taste left behind.
Mouthfeel was light in body and creamy in texture with a mild carbonation.
Overall a very good Belgian Ale with a nice fruity citrus presence, that along with a good mix of yeast and alcohol helped make sure that no one flavor was so overpowering that it overshadowed any other. This brew was very tasty and rather refreshing for a beer that has such a high ABV…

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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Colore giallo paglierino, o buccia di limone chiaro. Un po’ torbida.schiuma abbondante e persistente, ma non molto fine. L’intensita’ dell’aroma e’ media. Sentori di maltato, floreale, erbaceo, luppolato e acidulo. Detta cosi’ sembra un aroma complesso e avvolgente, eppure non si fa ricordare: possiamo dire che si sente di tutto un po’. Gia’ dal primo abboco si percepiscono chiarissimi toni citrici, un po’ aciduli, esaltati dalla carbonizzazione notevole. Nella seconda parte del sorso emergono toni maltati e leggermente caramellosi, senza pero’ mai abbandonare il citrato, che permane anche nel retrogusto, avvolgendo tutta la bocca. Nel retrogusto si sente anche molto leggermente il luppolo. Meglio in bocca che al naso, la birra presenta pero’ toni citrici secondo i miei gusti troppo accentuati. Comunque fresca e dissetante.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma and flavor (after they geyser subsides) dominated by yeast, fruit and nuts. not unpleasant, but not a favorite of mine. With a little too much carbonation, and alcohol showing, methinks this one is a tad bit overrated."
