COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Per questa ricetta viene utilizzato un luppolo giapponese (Sorachi Ace) e un solo malto (Pale). La bollitura prolungata conferisce aromi caramellati e permette di ottenere un mosto molto concentrato.

kaserov (928) - Oviedo, SPAIN - JUN 24, 2017
Color naranja, turbio, con capa de espuma blanca de un dedo de grosor (poca retención). Carbonatación suave. Textura oleosa. Aroma a malta caramelizada, miel, especias, ligerísimos toques cítricos y un mínimo de alcohol (super suave teniendo en cuenta sus 11%). Sabor dulzón, con mucha malta caramelizada, miel, frutos secos, lúpulo (aportando cítricos y ligero amargor al final). Postgusto dulzón. Extraño Barley Wine que, en teoría, aguantará 20 años. Extraño, complejo y, además, muy suave. Cerveza engañosa y riquísima.

A fantasy of a beer style, although it is not one of my favorites. I am accustomed to heavier beers with water. Is the only thing I missed. Maybe it needs a little contindència. But it is a good beer.

PlasticSoul (107) - - MAR 5, 2017
33 cl. bottle (bought from Birrificio Indipendente Elav, Bergamo Airport). It is deep amber/light copper coloured with minimal off-white head. Its aroma is nice but weak: caramel, citrus, honey, herbal notes. I really liked the taste: well-balanced -- bittersweet with some lingering sourness. It is medium-bodied and creamy-textured with an average carbonation. Finish is quite bitter and a bit tiring. A good beer but not outstanding.

erickok (6037) - Leuven, BELGIUM - DEC 10, 2016
Glowing light copper, nice head. Heavy but somewhat odd aroma. Like the sharp malty taste, heavy bitters. But the aroma is a bit dimmed for the abv. My style of beer and yes I enjoyed drinking this. (33cl bottle from Saveur Bière)

Tide (4222) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 10, 2016
Bottle from online shop. Hazy amber color, white head. Bitter taste with citrus, caramel, resin, hops, a bit of mango and grass. Bitter finish with cirrus, caramel, hops, resin, a bit of mango, nuts and grass. Very nice brew.

Billynomates solo hotel tasting. Hazy gold - amber beer, tidy pale cream colour head. Palate is airy and slightly soft. Modest fine carbonation. Sweetish malts, dry. Good Sorachi floral lemon cream. Very mild herb. Semi dry finish shows some spice. Nice beer but it’s more of a Sorachi IIPA than a Barleywine.

Arigato sievai, pārmērīgi eiro lidostā par neko- salds, drusku uz medaina pusi, stipri iesalains, tai pat laikā milzīgi nekāds- ne kompleksuma, ne balansa.
