Here's a new beer from a Birra Del Borgo, a brewer I have some respect for after trying their well-crafted Duchessa. This fine ale has become one of the brewers favourite session beers using premium Senatore Cappeli wheat as a malt base. What does that mean? Who knows, I simply "bere la birra" [Italian-style!].

Poured from a 330ml bottle into a Chimay chalice.

A: Hazy sunrise body with a wisp of white head drifting along like a lonely cloud... wait that's the laser etched logo on the bottom of the glass producing said lonely cloud... still appealing nonetheless.

S: Fruity bubblegum aromas permeate the nose along with candi sugar, some cake frosting and a note of bread yeast and cloves.

T: Yes, indeed, everything noted above; bubblegum, candi sugar, hint of clove, cake frosting with buttery diacetyl and bread yeast... but more... more SUGAAAR!!! Yes it is a bit sweet, good I say, cloying other more intelligent punters might say.

M: Diacetyl loans itself a slippery character to the mouth-feel and the body is medium with minimal carbonation.

D: Bit of a sugar-bomb, but a likeable sugar-bomb IMO. The Dan that is Murphy's is selling this fine beverage at $4.09 a pop, disregarding the weirdness of the .09 cents at the end, this presents real value in comparison to other Belgian Dubbels/Strong ales. I may be insane but I like cheap beers that taste like expensive Belgian ales, and this brew has that in spades/diamonds/clubs/jokers. Simply put: if you like Belgian Dubbels/Strong ales get this beer, post it to me, or drink it, whatever.

Note: Says "Saison" on the bottle but this is no Saison, more like a Dubbel.

Food match: Sugar-bombs like this make me think of Medieval feasts with pig on spit and other bizarre meats such as; swans, peafowl, quail, partridge, storks, cranes, larks, linnets and other songbirds that could be trapped in nets, and just about any other wild bird that could be hunted and cooked [Medieval-style!].
