3.73/5 rDev +19.2%
33cl brown bottle purchased from Domus Birrae in Rome.
Pours a very hazed golden colour, with some orange at the deeper parts. Head forms as a slushy white crest, but settles out to a pocked film across the top. Lace forms in places, but is pretty inconsistent. Looks a bit flat—I hope better things are coming up.
Nose is indeed better, with a nice mix of earthy grains and pronounced Belgian ester characters. Solid rounded sweetness, not a lot of spice, but some boozy characters from the surprisingly high ABV. It's pretty solid.
Taste is also good. Clean and forthright on the front, with a touch of spice that comes in on the mid-palate, giving a touch of cloves and some crushed watermelon. Malt is light, but structured, giving body and basis to the beer right through to the back. Finish is a bit light, but given how high in alcohol it is, that's quite something. Mouthfeel is soft, but with a click at the back which gives it a pleasant sendoff.
Overall, this is actually pretty good. It doesn't have the complexity of the best Belgian examples, but the Belgian genesis is apparent, and the beer is pretty well-made. The 9.5% ABV is well-hidden, which really aids the drinkability—more depth and character would make it exceptional.

2.95/5 rDev -5.8%
Opened with a geyser of foam, then poured with a massive head.
Nose shows heavy spicy phenols, Belgian doughy yeast notes, soft light malt and very faint pear.
Flavours include sharp, solvent-like booze, doughy yeast and light sweet malt.
Excessively carbonated and too much booze.

Bottle from Beer Deluxe.
A - Pours a hazy dark gold with lot's of suspended sediment. Three finger fluffy white head. Good carbonation. Good splattering of lace and a finger of retention.
S - Yeast. That's it. Maybe some orange.
T - A bit fruity with some orange. Booze. Yeast. Not a whole lot worth noting aside from the orange esters.
M - Strong carbonation, medium body and a dry finish with some booze.
O/D - This beer was pretty uninteresting. Basic for the style and no real outstanding flavour that came out.
