draught @ festa dell’unità Bologna. Pours golden with a great white head on top. Malt’s sweet aroma is well balanced with a good hop’s bitterness. Great beer.

Birra assolutamente fantastica! Bevuta alla festa dell’unità di Bologna, quindi deduco sia la GRAND CRU riveduta e corretta. Non posso fare termini di paragone essendo la mia prima volta per questa birra, com era buonissima, molto bella da vedere, naso fruttato, fruttatissimo futta matura, il gusto non è alcoloco nonostante i suoi 9% gradi, completissima in tutto dolce amaro fantastico! Retrogusto ottimo che permane a lungo! Birra in stile fantastica!

Cloudy mud brown beer, little off white head. Light and semi dry palate. Sweetish malt, traces of bubblegum and banana. A whisper of milk chocolate and a pinch of spice. Well integrated orange. Finishes dry with more sweet esters.

oh6gdx (25472) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 11, 2011
Bottled. Hazy orangeish golden colour with a small head. Aroma is fruits, spices, sweet malts, some yeast and mild notes of alcohol. Flavour is very similar otherwise, but the alcohol is rather well-hidden.

BeerCast_Rich (1906) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 3, 2011
[750ml bottle courtesy of cgarvieuk] Deep brownish amber pour. Decent, fluffy white head. Aromas of sweet, fruity malt. Quite light on the palate, the malt balance is really nice. Sweet, caramel finish. Reminds me of an English bitter or Brown Ale – except its 9%! Really hides the alcohol well [02062011]

An orange beer with a fruity nose and palate. Also a nice blend with the caramel and yeasty flavours, Not bad, well balanced and quite drinkable.

2 June 2011, bottle at one of CGarvieuk’s legendary tastings! nutty amber colour, clear, no bubbles. nose is caramel and red fruit and amber ale. full body and mildly fizzy. I actually like this. it tastes better than it smells. big alcohol, cold cooked cherries, yeastiness is balanced with sweet malt. very nice.
