Bottle sample @ LIBF’17, thanks to the RB-InBev Belgian crew for the share.
Paille-orange, fin col blanc.
Arôme de fruité fermenté, abricot, raisin, levure arrive en rétro avec un effet presque belge. Le fruité reste plus dans un style blanc que effet Malvasia de vin rouge ou grappe. Je note également des effluves de fruits tropicaux.
Palais est fruité, sucre résiduel, petite chaleur des 9% avec une amertume noble. Une petite douceur reste assez présente le tout sous effet d’un fruité de raisin et qcq pointes de tropical. PowY (714) - AUSTRIA - JUN 5, 2017
750 ml bottle Riserva 2014. Pours a hazy orange golden with a beige head. The aroma is medium malty (caramel, bread) with light hoppy notes - ripe oranges, orange peal, hints of yeast. Medium to full body with a very low carbonation a light to medium sweetness and a light bitterness. Very smooth and balanced, the alcohol is very well integrated. The aroma is fruity, ripe fruits, oranges, lemon, mango, white grape juice with a decent backbone of sweetish malt, caramel, honey and some hop bitterness towards the finish. Rather complex flavor and overall a very interesting and well balanced beer.

September 2016 - Bottle share at Leighton’s, with many thanks to Kenny. As ’Barley BB9 Birra’, 9.0%, BB Feb 2019. Hazy orange, still, foamy off-white head, light lacing. Aroma is apple and varnish, booze. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is light malt, biscuity, touches of lemon, some drying booze. Quite thin and doesn’t deliver too much at the ABV. Just OK. (2.9) madmitch76 (24511) - , Essex, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2016

Leighton’s flat clearance. Hazy gold beer, good cream colour head. Palate is airy, semi dry. Modest fine carbonation. Airy malts, mildly sweet. Mild wood. Sweet dessert wine fruits. Little spice. Crystallised fruits. Light semi dry finish. Tasty enough. Maybe more time would benefit.
