Brewed by Amarcord Brewery in the small medieval town of Apecchio, Italy, AMA Bionda is a beer made specifically for the Italian dinner table. Designed by Brooklyn Brewmaster Garrett Oliver, AMA Bionda is a golden beer with a soft but complex floral and fruity character, born of aromatic malts, three types of hops, Italian Orange Blossom honey from Sicily, and water from springs that date to Roman times.

GoufCustom (1654) - HONG KONG - OCT 21, 2016

355ml long neck bottle bought at YATA in New Town Plaza, Shatin.

Looks: Clear golden orangeOne and half finger head and crumpety white foam which lasts for 4 minutes; Excellent sticky lacing with active slight carbonation.

Aroma: Very fragrant and sweet malt, with strong banana, vanilla, pineapple, peaches, yellow fruits, strong bubble gum, floral, sugar, bread, strong Bel yeast, light lemon and light grass.

Taste: Close to light sweet Pils malt, with faint mangoes, floral, fair molasses, light spices, biscuits, yeast, lemon, fair to light bitter grassy hops.

Body: Medium body. Slick and smooth palate.

Mouth Feel: Good Pils maltyness in a solid smooth background. Minimal taste with little fruity malt or esters except very light mangoes. Flowery and fair sweetness. Light spicy, strong biscuit with fair lemon to round. Quite good.

Hoppiness: Floral, light lemon and light grass in nose. Light spices, floral, lemon and light grass in taste; Bitterness is light for an abrupt, low astringent malty finish.

After Taste: Fairly dry. Sweet and fairly easy to mouth.

Comments: Its aroma is so Belgian Blond and promising, especially the strong bubble gum and rich banana esters. However the taste is very underwhelming, devoid of lively Bel yeasty or sweet character that it missed the mark. A Belgian blonde that flatters to deceive. Not outstanding.

Swietne piwo wloskie. Spora i bardzo trwala piana, jaskrawa zolta barwa lekko metna. Wspaniala buteleczka mala o poj 355ml, ladna stylistyka etykiety. Zapach zbozowo cytrusowy, glownie cytryny i limonka. W smaku jasny grejfrut nieco cytryny, chlebowa skorka. Lekkie i fajne, do objadu w sam raz.

355ml design bottle at Hearts, Nordic C hotel. Pearl white head reduced to a patchy surface. Misty golden-orange body. Dotted spots on the glass. Peach and yeasty fruitiness on the nose. The taste profile contains moderate hints of Belgian yeast strain, some peaches and a touch of candy sweetness. Drying ending. Medium bodied. Okay partner to meat sandwich (Stockholm 12.08.2016).

Tjusig flaska på Paolo’s, Örebro. Guldig, klar med högt vitt skum med stora bubblor. Söta och brödiga toner i doften. Honung, lite skumbanan och peppriga inslag. Typisk belgisk blond i stilen, i den något lättare klassen. Lite jenka-tuggummi i eftersmaken. Helt ok matöl.
