Belgian barleywine style ale. Our The Oracle was thought as point of meeting between english barleywines and belgian quadrupel, it’s fermented with Trappist yeast.

Shark_Pants (565) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 13, 2016
Bottled Jan 2015. Deep ruby red with reasonably small creamy yellow-beige persistent head, initial fizzing similar to soft drink. Rich toffee malt aroma, with raisins, plums, a little sherry and some butteriness. The taste has a rich caramel maltiness, hazelnut, some diacetyl, almost cola-like notes, vegetal hop bitterness. Lingering sweet finish. Big richness but no noticeable alcohol flavour. Full bodied, lightly prickly carbonation helps counteract some of the big sweetness. Pretty good but would benefit from aging to round off some of the harsher edges.

langeveld12 (402) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 5, 2016
Most like a Barleywine. Sweet fruits, light bitterness and slight roasted malts. The yeast does give it something of a Belgian quad. However, it lacks the complexity of those. Not bad at all, but it's not the best of both worlds. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Batavi (319) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - FEB 28, 2016
Fles 33 cl. gekocht bij Vinotake in Waalwijk, uitgeschonken in een De Molen bierglas. Warme koperachtige kleur, troebel en met een medium hoge beige, gelige schuimkraag. Aroma’s van karamel, verschillende soorten gedroogd fruit en aardachtige tonen. Het smaakpallet is heel zoet, maar kundig gebalanceerd door zachte hopbitter notities. Bruine suiker en karamelmout, aangevuld met veel donker gedroogd fruit als vijgen, rozijnen, pruimen en dadels. De complexiteit gaat verder met tonen van vanille, kaneel, melkchocolade en aardachtige tonen. Een zijdezacht bier, met een zoet en romig mondgevoel, en een zachte carbonatie. The Oracle zit inderdaad tussen een Quadrupel, en een English Barley Wine in, complex, heel zoet, veel gedroogd fruit maar mooi gebalanceerd door de Europese hopsoorten. Dit was mijn eerste bier van White Pony, ik ben zeer benieuwd naar de andere bieren die ik heb staan vooral de BA versies. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
