leghorn99 (211) - Livorno, ITALY - AUG 15, 2015
Nel bicchiere è arancio pallido, velato, ed ha un bel cappello di bianca schiuma, cremosa e compatta, dalla buona persistenza. Al naso c’è una pacifica convivenza di sentori aspri di frutta acerba e di scorza d’agrumi (lime e limone) con quelli dolci dei canditi e del miele; in sottofondo una leggera speziatura (coriandolo). In bocca si sente subito la mancanza di un po’ di bollicine a dare un po’ di vivacità; ne guadagna la morbidezza, non la piacevolezza, e la birra dal corpo medio scorre piuttosto agevolmente. Biscotto, miele e sopratutto canditi (agrumi) sono la spina dorsale del gusto che viene arricchito dalla pesca sciroppata e dall’albicocca; una bella attenuazione riesce poi a contrastare la dolcezza della bevuta, che termina con una timida nota amara di scorza d’agrumi. Il retrogusto è di nuovo dolce di frutta sciroppata, riscaldato da un lieve alcool warming.

Poured from the 4-pack of bottles (says bottled 12/13/13) nice orangy gold, smells clean which is odd for a Belgian. Get the sweet up front and the dry at the end. This beer has everything I like about Belgian strong without the ass taste that I don’t, but usually get. Very well done and strong.

The beer pours a hazy golden with a medium white head, and the aroma blends citrus hops with light malts. The taste is mildly bitter, slightly umami, and slightly sweet with a strong hop flavor in addition to their bitterness. The aftertaste is a long-lasting version of the initial flavor. The texture is nearly oily, but the bubbly carbonation and light body help balance all the other elements into a very pleasant package.

Draught sample at CBC 2015. Slightly hazy, golden colour with a small, white head. Fruity aroma with spices, grass, banana, citrus fruits and yests - dough. Taste is lightly sweet. Full body with a pleasent carbonation. Finishes dry and fruity with spicy and yeasty notes. Nice American-Belgian fusion.
