LIBF2017. Kolor ciemno brązowy, prawie czarny. Na powierzchni piwa tworzy się średniej wielkości, beżowa piana. Zbudowana z drobnych pęcherzyków redukuje się w średnim tempie. Aromat ziemisty, ziołowy, delikatnie palony. Jest wanilia, nut owocowych raczej brak. W smaku ponownie pijawia sie ziemistość i nuty palone, są pwoce, głównie ciemne. Smak jest nieco wytrawny. Alkohol schowany, niema po nim ani śladu. Wysycenie średnie

Bottle sample @ LIBF’17, thanks to the RB-InBev Belgian crew for the share. Paille-orange, fin col blanc. Arôme de fruité fermenté, abricot, raisin, levure arrive en rétro avec un effet presque belge. Le fruité reste plus dans un style blanc que effet Malvasia de vin rouge ou grappe. Je note également des effluves de fruits tropicaux. Palais est fruité, sucre résiduel, petite chaleur des 9% avec une amertume noble. Une petite douceur reste assez présente le tout sous effet d’un fruité de raisin et qcq pointes de tropical.

Bottle sample @ LIBF’17, thanks to the RB-InBev Belgian crew for the share. Orange, dorée, col blanc. Arôme de malt, pâle voire pils/Munich, rétro de fruits fermentés tropical - encore une fois avec un usage de raisin blanc. Palais est malté, fruité assez marqué niveau des raisins, houblonné léger arrive à donner une pointe d’amertume et léger citron avec de fines notes presque tropicales. Petite douceur persistante niveau du raisin. Le tout est assez limite par rapport aux autres versions, ici, un excès de sucré résiduel des raisins sert pour pousser l’alcool à 9%..

Bottle sample @ LIBF’17, thanks to the RB-InBev Belgian crew for the share. Paille, léger doré, col blanc. Arôme reste centré sur une approche levure belge, retrouve un fruité un peu semblable aux autres Barley dans l’usage de raisin - càd mosto di vino dans le brassin, ici un effet noble houblonné perce en rétro et est suppléé par un côté raisin blanc. Palais est basique, effet pils, grains, notes vertes et houblonnées dans le noble et un léger fini fruité rendant encore la place au raisin.

Barley BB9 (Malvasia)
750 ml bottle Riserva 2014. Pours a hazy orange golden with a beige head. The aroma is medium malty (caramel, bread) with light hoppy notes - ripe oranges, orange peal, hints of yeast. Medium to full body with a very low carbonation a light to medium sweetness and a light bitterness. Very smooth and balanced, the alcohol is very well integrated. The aroma is fruity, ripe fruits, oranges, lemon, mango, white grape juice with a decent backbone of sweetish malt, caramel, honey and some hop bitterness towards the finish. Rather complex flavor and overall a very interesting and well balanced beer.

Colore giallo chiaro, schiuma media cremosa e persistente, aromi accennati di malto. Al palato, frutta esotica, legno e note vinose, corpo medio, leggera secchezza ed un finale lungo in cui appare l’amaro. Una birra estremamente bilanciata e beverina nonostante la gradazione alcolica importante.

Il colore è un bel tonaca di frate con un bel cappello di schiuma. Il naso è semplicemente fantastico, direi sognatore. In bocca secondo me è meno incisiva della parte olfattiva, ma nonostante i gradi ha una gran bevibilità, giù il cappello.

Finsish is a bit too sweet, but it does have some nice bittereness, also the aftertaste is a bit short. Medium body,gentle carbonation.

Deep plummy brown under a thin light tan head. Lovely boozy toffee malt aroma with a big sticky grape and fig and raisin nose. Big semisweet nose with sweet berries and grape and fig and belgianish undertones with a mild grapey fleshy dryness and mild citric bitterness. Smooth and fruity sweet overall.

Barley Tùvi Tùvi
Huge, dense & fine lightly yellowish head, leaving textbook lace over very faintly veiled yellow-golden beer. Initially sourish, lactic nose, hints at citrussy hops, more and more bitter herbs. Quite bitter-hoppy, some malt underneath without real sweetness. Hops are more raw, not citrussy in the mouth. Hopoils attain astringency. Quite slick; medium bodied; well-carbonated. Bittering EU hops for a golden ale. Because of the astringency of the bittering hosp, drinkability is not its main forte.

September 2016 - Bottle share at Leighton’s, with many thanks to Kenny. As ’Barley BB9 Birra’, 9.0%, BB Feb 2019. Hazy orange, still, foamy off-white head, light lacing. Aroma is apple and varnish, booze. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is light malt, biscuity, touches of lemon, some drying booze. Quite thin and doesn’t deliver too much at the ABV. Just OK. (2.9)

Bottle from Scurreria Beer & Bagel and thoroughly enjoyed at Spianata Castelletto whilst watching the sun go down over Genoa. Beer pours a hazy amber colour with a small but lasting off white head. Aroma is sweet, malty, caramel, fruit, vanilla and lightly herbal. Medium sweetness, light bitterness, and a touch of sour. Medium to full body, sticky texture, soft carbonation. Finish is somewhat dry, with some bitterness and a sour edge. Maybe not a fruit beer? But thought it a very good beer!
