COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The masterpiece of the brewery. The beer that mostly encountered the favour among the customers at Le Baladin. Although one wouldn’t believe that, it’s the most alcoholic among all the productions. It originated from an old recipe created toward the end of the ’800 following the style of the belgian abbey beers. Intense aroma of warm flowers, apricot and banana and hints of bitter almond. Agreeable, refreshing and quenching taste of apricot in syrup, almond cake and citrus fruits. Excellent the use of belgian selected hop during the fermentation process. This beer matches perfectly with ripen cheeses, biscuits and almond sweets.

Pours an orange amber color and the semll is very reminiscent of a Belgian triple. Very nice citrus. Tastes of sweet fruit. I really liked this one. Second time I’ve had it. We just got it back in the store today actually at Knightly Spirits in Orlando.

19Oracolo78 (220) - ITALY - OCT 1, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 5, 2017 Birra ambrata. Schiuma grossolana e non persistente. Al naso sentori di toffee, caramello e castagna. Al palato poco carbonata, non troppo strutturata con note che ricordano i canditi, il caramello, miele e la frutta secca. Nel finale poco amara. Una birra che non convince totalmente. Si lascia bere facilmente ma rimane un po' piatta e stucchevole.

Bottle. Super delicious ale. Quite strong. A little sweetness but not too much. Would make a perfect aperitif.

Ale italiana bastante buena. Color ámbar oscuro, poca espuma blanca, poco aroma. Buen gusto afrutado con sabor a cítricos y albaricoque. Dulce sin exagerar. Refrescante y ligera en cuerpo a pesar de la alta graduación. Buen retrogusto. Un buena cerveza artesanal italiana.

0.75 l bottle from Vrutak, shared with Višnja 666, StoutBraut and Di Giusto! Hazy amber, small off-white head. Dried fruit, toffee, metallic alcohol aromas. Spicy and husky. Strong, medium body, moderate carbonation. Average.

Draft. Hazy orange with an off white head. citrus, malt and yeast aroma. Taste the same with some caramel notes. Quite mild for a Belgian strong ale. Without the usual belgian spicy yeast. Meh.
