Silvan7 (567) - Samarate, ITALY - NOV 21, 2013
Bottle @ Il Porco , Corbetta. Reserva 2010. Schiuma beige, abbastanza fine abbastanza persistente. Colore ramato,riflessi aranciati, opalescente. Profumo abbastanza intenso, poco persistente. Fruttato, di albicocca , pesche in sciroppo, molto speziata, sa di zenzero, lievito belga e coriandolo fresco. Alcool ben avvertibile. Complessa. Gusto Molto intenso e abbastanza persistente. Dolce amabile, poco amaro, nessuna tostatura e pochissima acidità. Si distinguono miele , zenzero, un gusto "terroso" che potrebbe essere la cannella, una sensazione pungente che potrebbe ricordare il pepato di alcune saison e si ritrova il coriandolo. é abbastanza corposa, carbonata, poco rotonda. Equilibrato il gusto , abbastanza armonica nel complesso per via della disparità di intensità tra profumo e gusto (entrambi comunque molto fini).

UPDATED: NOV 20, 2013 A beautiful ruby red with a small head. The aroma is Belgian with the sugar and spice the flavor has all the Belgian qualities as well. Extremely smooth as is all of their beers. No alcohol to speak of. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

radagast83 (4131) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - NOV 19, 2013
Draft at Churchkey - indicated as oak barrels. 2012 Reserva. Poured a nice amber/orange color with a large white head. Aroma was notes of sweet caramel, dark fruits, sweet malts, light spices and Belgian yeast notes. Light, drinkable spices, a pleasant sugar note to it, with a touch of vanilla and wood that smooths out the base beer even more. Highly drinkable, especially with the 10%.

Flaska från SB webblansering 2012. Kopparfärgad vätska med livligt skum. Intensiva dofter av russin och daddlar. Torr kraftig smak med en fyllig munkänsla. Lång torr eftersmak.

Bottle. Hazy copper with almost no head. Aroma is very faint but appears to be largely green apple. Taste follows suit but adds oak and vanilla. Taste is still rather muted. Palate is full and smooth with light carbonation. Disappointing.
