Golden color and creamy white load and foam, the Toccadibò reminds us once a golden strong ale. In the nose, is clean and dry with pronounced alcoholic sensations that soon evaporate leaving a magnificent triumph of fruity peach and apricot syrup that is well balanced with hints of hops flavoring reminiscent of the chives. In the palate, announced the sensation of "warming" is well contrasted by bold dryness that gives us a spicy aftertaste, clean and sharp that leads us, despite the strong alcohol content, just a second glass to be desired. More attentive the taster will not escape an unusual but pleasant hint of amaretto. A table can be combined perfectly with white meat, but may surprise and degrease elaborate dishes of game, fight fat cheeses with long ripening prove irresistible tarts and fruit syrup or amaretti. Ingredients: water, barley malt, hops, yeast, spices. Serving temperature: 10 ° -12 ° C

Pour is deeply hazed apricot with a thin sticky bright white head...smell is band-aid, feet, and lightly spiced with hints of pear...taste is sweet and thin with some pear, apples, pepper, yeast, feet...then a slightly hoppy bitter vegetal finish...

75 cL bottle. Pours hazy yellow to orange with a small white head. Aroma is phenolic and slight toasted malt. Sweet caramelish and mild hops fruity. Phenolic and dry into the finish.

JorisPPattyn (10062) - BELGIUM - JAN 21, 2007
Pale orange-yellow beer, with a yellowish head. Lactic acid, a bit of wood, aroma of apples, and also some fusels. In the taste, diacetyl joins the fusels, malts, and some powerful alcohol. Well bodied (which sits bad on a tripel), alcoholwarming, slick & even oily. Rather poor, faulted beer which leans heavily on its alcoholcontent.

Courtesy of argo0. Very cloudy pale body with a medium white head. Hoppy nose with cotton candy, some honey and golden fruits. The flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter with golden raisins, caramel, cotton candy, honey and bandaid. Medium body is round with moderate carbonation, slightly medicinal finish.

Scopey (15431) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2013
Bottle at CGarvie tasting. It pours pale yellow with a small white head. The nose is sherbet, apple, sweet pear, orange and floral notes. The nose is quite light, sherbet, straw, apple, pear, honey and floral notes with a sweet finish. Light-medium body and fine carbonation. A bit light for the style and too sweet for my tastes.

unclemattie (4357) - Georgia, USA - JAN 15, 2008
15 DEC 07, Southeast YeHa. (A horse named Barley.) 750ml bottle. Pours golden. Grainy pale malt aroma. Pils hops in the aroma. Kinda grassy. Finishes a bit yeasty. Nice.

VTHopHead (1511) - Seymour, Tennessee, USA - SEP 21, 2008
750ml - Poured a slightly cloudy darkish amber in color with a small white head that quickly faded to a thin rim around the beer. Aroma was more than slightly skunky (disappointing!), slightly malty and sweet. Flavor was also quite skunky and disappointing (considering what I paid for this crap). SKUNK is to much to be ignored...it is the dominant characteristic of the beer... yuck! Quite bad...
