Cest un peu la fiesta du fruit exotique bien mr cette bire ! On dirait plus une IPA bien charge et dmonstrative quun vritable barley wine traditionnel ... On se dit que a devrait tre trop mais finalement cest dune gourmandise sduisante ... Se boit particulirement bien un peu trop frache et ainsi, cest un plaisir de la dcouvrir tout du long de la dgustation, mesure quelle se rchauffe.

Echon (428) - rhus, DENMARK - SEP 21, 2015
Tap at Fairbar. Light bronze body with an off-white head. Round, hoppy aroma with notes of citrus. Rich and well-rounded sweet taste with lots of hops and heavy bitterness. The alcohol is fully hidden. Medium body with average carbonation. Long and bitter finish. I have not had too many barley wines as they did not appeal to me initially, but this is delicious and very drinkable. Looks like I should explore this style further.
