Marrone chiara con riflessi arancio, opalescente, schiuma beige non molto persistente. Aroma di albicocca essiccata, zucchero di canna, bourbon, note legnose e di nocciola, freschezza etilica mista a frutta fermentata. Al palato stesse componenti con bourbon maggiormente in evidenza, finale erbaceo e leggermente tostato. Corpo medio, carbonazione medio-bassa, leggermente oleosa.

'13 bottle. The pour is a bubbly hazy orange. The aroma has some sweet and belgian malt. The taste is slightly over carbonated, not much barrel flavor, more just a belgian. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: JAN 5, 2016 Main defects are little aroma, and pouring a savage bubble storm: foam is great but quickly dissappearing. Overall, common characteristics with Belgian Strong ales remain, sweet taste, long finnish, etc.

0.33l bottle. Hazy dark orange body, tall off-white head. Aroma of caramel, cloves, juniper, whiskey and wood. Taste of caramel, brown sugar, whiskey, orange zest and cloves. Nice beer, but to be honest there is too much going on in it for me.
