Artebirra Pasturana 2008: difficile rimanere delusi dal Troll, che si dimostra sapientissimo nel dare una lettura personale di uno stile che qualcuno giudicherebbe ’convenzionale’. Buona buona

On tap at Bir & Fud, Roma. Hazy golden with a small head. Complex fruity aroma with hints of melon and spices. Rounded melon flavours with just a bit of spices (including cinnamon?) A great Italian Belgian ale.

On tap at Bir & Fud on 7/6. Pours gold with a minimal head. Aroma of caramel, candied sugar, and funk. Similar taste. A very nice, solid beer.

Cloudy golden with a big and lasting white head. Aroma of spice, especially coriander, with bready malt and a mineral note. Sweet with complex spice and fruit flavours

My Bottom Line:
Honeyed malts tend to supercede the herbal, citrusy hops in this clean and well-made strong ale.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the hazy blond.
-The body is round, and these residual sugars seem to provide the bulk of the flavors.
-A subtle spiciness stems from the hops in the finish.
-Carbonation is soft, which usually helps drinkability, but alcohol warmth warns you that this is no session beer.
-The honeyed sweetness verges on being caramelized.

On tap at Bir&Fud, Roma.

Hazy golden with a large off white ahd fluffy head. Yeasty nose with ripe fruits and hops. Flavor was dry with yeast, hops and fruity hints. Finished dry and bitter.

Bottle 750ml.

Light unclear medium orange yellow color with a huge, frothy, good lacing, fully lasting, white to off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, toasted, moderate hoppy, flowers, perfume, moderate yeasty, spices - coriander ! Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet and light light fruity acidic with a average to long duration, yeasty. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. [20100911]

75 cL bottle. Pours hazy yellow with a small white head. Aroma is grassy and citrusy. Sweet fruity and mild yeasty. Sweet and toasted malt base. Bitter and slight citric into a medium dry yet fruity finish.

04-SEP-2012, draft @Bir & Fud, Thx. Manuele. Golden with lasting off-white head. Alcohol aroma with yeast and spice. Taste is caramel, yeast, and spice. Quite some body but light in taste. Not the best belgian ale.

Furseth (2165) - Kungälv, SWEDEN - JUN 15, 2008
Draft at Bir & Fud Rom,/Italy: Hazy yelow colour, with a flat head. Aroma of flowers,malty,fruity and a caramelly finish. Flavor had a smouth mouth feeling,with lots of caramel, reminds me of a norwegian bock beer,and thats a compliment.(In the head its stands Belgian Ale?) A Short to medium caramely finish. Nice!
