Kosmokrator (501) - ITALY - NOV 11, 2014
Limpido color ramato con soffice cappello di saponosa schiuma biancastra. Aroma intenso e dolciastro con sentori di pesche sciroppate, luppolo, biscotto, fiori e toffee; gusto rotondo, pieno e ben bilanciato che riprende i profumi e si conclude con una luppolatura intensa. Corpo medio, effervescenza nella norma e struttura oleoso-vellutata. Molto buona e di grande carattere!

Couleur orange; mousse blanche (trop abondante; attention en versant); arômes de grapefruit; goût bien houblonné avec un peu de malt; les 8,5% d’alcool sont bien cachés; belle longue finale amère

500ml bottle served in a pint glass. A: Nice and classic Nogne bottle art. Pours a clear light orange color forming a huge and bubbled white head. Good retention and lots of soapy and lingering lacings formed and left in the glass S: Strong fruity and citrus notes. Grapefruit, pine and pineapple. Sweet pale grains. Flowery hops T: Slightly sweet upfront. Very citrus notes. Grapefruit, pineapple, pine. In overall, a slightly sweet taste followed by a strong and pleasant hops bitterness. Well hidden 8.5% ABV M: Medium body. Medium carbonation. Fruity, citrus and piny aftertaste O: Great drinkability. Another Nogne classic [ BA Review @ 6/27/2014 ]

The perfect beer? Very bitter, a beer for "hopheads ". Murky appearance, unfiltered with yeast sediments in bottle. Don't worry if yeast makes it into glass, still tastes terrific. Highly recommended!
