3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750 ml bottle. An unclear light amber beer with an initially huge, then collapsing white head. The aroma is malty, a bit spicy with many fruity notes (orange, peach and banana). Some light hop notes. The flavour is sweet, malty, with spicy and fruity hints. A hop touch in the finish. Medium to full body , lively carbonation, medium/long finish with medium bitetrness. Enough interesting and drinkable Belgian style beer brewed in Italy, though not complex as the best example of the style.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
One of the most interesting beer in the last years..
Itís very good with cheese and with its complex spicy and great aromatic structure it could be used, as the official drink, in place of a great wine, for a 5 star meat or fish menu, with truffles, fois gras and venison or with smoked salmon and sushi.
Itís the new trappist style, corrected and reviewed, in a spicy, but always natural way.
Along side with Le Baladin Wayan itís the greatest flavour of italian Brewery and one of the best in Europe.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Biggish coarse white head. Hazy opaque yellow body with carbonation. Sweetish bubblegum and fruit aroma with milky yeasty notes. Touch of barnyard about it. Sweetish fruit bubblegum taste with yeasty notes. Aftertaste is the same, but drier. Decent, but not really good. (0.75l bottle from Mulliganís in Milan, tasted at Knut Albert’s.)

Another Italian take on a Belgian style.
A subtle beer, some fruitiness, but it is not outstanding in any way. Well, it could be tasting fatigue, too...

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Nice orange appearance and a frothy white head. Strong aroma of peaches, oranges and something like almonds. A bit too alcohol in the nose. Medium bodied, iíd say a bit messy rather than complex. Very warming. Dry finish.
