An oddly sediment-suspended dark golden colour, with a very filmy head of slightly white foam. The head is only really a collar of large-bubbled foam around the edges. No lacing. I can't say it's a particularly inspiring brew all up.

Bread and slight banana characters on the nose. Bit of cellar mustiness and a wet cardboard oxidised character. All up, let's face it, it's not a great nose. Lots of slightly off characters, but all together it's not unpleasant.

Very light palate, with some sweetness and a bit of yeasty bread character on the back. A little acerbic with some medicinal bite mid-palate. The sweetness gets a bit cloying after a while, and it has a peppery bite on the back which makes this even more difficult. Mouthfeel a bit cloying.

I find it difficult to drink. I'm not a big fan all up. The sweetness is too much, and there's certainly not enough good characteristics to pull it through.

Pours a murky orange colour, yellow spectrum at the top when held up to the light with slow carbonation. Produced a thin white head at first pour that dissipates, leaving a film of decent lace revealing a moderate body. Looks flat but holds its end up.

Nose is very sweet. A lot of banana ester and a slight hint of bubblegum on there, strong caramel notes underlying with a touch of butterscotch. Candied orange peel as well provides a slight tartness and a whisper of nutmeg provides the only bite. Not overly strong in its sweet which bodes quite well, and a decent complexity.

Taste is bold and sweet. A lot of caramel malt on the front blends with a strong fruitiness which then takes over for the finish. Lots of apricot, banana and grapefruit vie for attention with the final cheer going to banana. Some more bubblegum suggests itself throughout and a good dose of sherry brings together the slight alcohol warmth and the fruity sweetness.

Alcohol most prominent on the feel, with naked booziness giving a harsher texture than necessary. Body is full enough but not assertive enough to overcome the boozey brashness.

Not an unpleasant drop but at best a whimper of what it could have been. Has potentially great flavour but never fully lives up to it.

Served at the Bierkeller in Porto Alegre, on to the beer:

This is golden and bright in color, but the head is lackluster in this case and falls flat on itself. The highlights to be found in this beer are notes of bubblegum, sugar, and pinneapple, both of which can be tastes and smelled. Carbonation is fairly strong, but less than a Duvel. It doesn't even feel like its listed alcohol, where is it?

A solid strong golden ale by Brazil's most famous craft brewery.

Poured from a 33cl bottle into a tulip.

A - Cloudy golden amber colour. Minimal head.

S - Sweet malts. Bread and fruit at the same time.

T - Again as with the aroma - it's sweet malts most dominant here. Touch of mild fruit as well.

M - Smooth and creamy. Not much of an aftertaste but if there is it comes straight from sweet berries.

D - Simple belgian recipe executed with Brazilian flair!

Slightly hazy golden amber color with a thin head with short retention
Pleasant aroma of red fruits, bread malt and later then banana. Hints of Belgian yeast and pine.
Incredible flavor of matured strawberries with notes of nutty malt, pears, oranges, oxidized apples and brown sugar. Hints of Belgian yeast and herbal and earthy hops. Dry aftertaste with a fruity lingering taste.
Medium body but almost liquorish with appropriate carbonation. Alcohol of 8.5% abv is a master of disguise here.
I don’t recall it to be so nice. It may be the first time I try this with just 5 months to expiration date; it looks like this is the magic number. Smooth like a Belgian Blond ale, flavorful without being overly sweet and with a muzzled powerful alcoholic punch. Recommended.
