25cl bottle at Moeder Lambic Fontainas, Brussels (Belgium). Brown, orange, gloomy coloured brew in a lovely glass. This dark amber beer is passion fruit and candy flavoured - a promising sweetness, without artificial scents. The hoppy nose is rather unpleasant: Dirt, dust, hay. The mouth is odd: Vanilla, cream taste, with some sour accents. Not my taste, for sure. The finish however is nice enough, and long. A weird, strangely balanced imperial IPA from Italy! SkillsFactory (738) - ITALY - MAY 23, 2015
Ambrata, velata dai lieviti in sospensione, schiuma bianca non molto persistente.
Aroma di melone maturo, leggero caramello, malto, erbaceo.
Al palato melone maturo, citrica, malto è bella coda amara erbacea ma soprattutto che ricorda il pompelmo, nota alcolica sul finale.
Retrolfatto agrumato e di melone.
Corpo medio-leggero, mediamente carbonata.
Piacevole e "digestiva".

Bevuta alla spina io l’ho trovata decisamente in forma, mi ha impressionato, forte ma non esageratamente, secondo me sa il fatto suo. Sarpa (1615) - FINLAND - APR 1, 2015

Pours hazy golden color with a large head. Citric fruits and some caramel on the nose, grapefruits, gooseberry bush and pine, lots of hops too. Bitter fruity palate, grapefruity flavor with resinous hops and some malt notes. Quite bitter, some alcohol warmth at the end. Very nice.

Aroma is rather mild with some grainy tones, hay and gooseberry bush. Flavour is rather hoppy with grapefruit, leathery bush leaves and some cereal. Finishes with lingering hoppiness and menthol. Also mild herbal tones. Not exactly balanced and somewhat stuffy.
