COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

750 ml bottle from Capone’s. Pours clear dark straw with minimal off-white head and a lot of carbonation. Nose is floral and fruity, with notes of honey, mild funk, banana, and mild spiciness. Tastes of banana, mild spicy yeasty malt, nd finishing hops, fruitiness, and banana.

heavy (2116) - Split, CROATIA - MAY 28, 2013
17/04 A 0.75 l bottle, courtesy of ogivlado, thanks for sharing! It poured hazy golden body with medium to big head. Fine herbal hoppy and vanilla malty aroma, also characterized by Belgian ale yeasty notes. Flavor was simpler than expected, yet quite nice, fine, bitterish, chalky, yeasty and fruity like peach or sweet cooked apple. Somehow watery on palate, giving a feeling of a thinner body, but still pleasant with, taking that into account, rather long finish that showed mostly the typical Belgian ale spices and other characteristics of the style - vanilla and some citrus. An enjoyable and very well made one!

mzaar (1508) - Varberg, SWEDEN - MAY 24, 2013
Flaska. Ljus bärnstensfärgad med stort bubbligt vitt skum. Det är en ynnest att få sitta och dofta på den här ölen med all sin fruktighet (melon, citron, apelsinskal), blommighet och honung. Smakar absolut inte dåligt, men efter den inledningen av bekantskapen så blir det ändå något av en besvikelse att känna att "jasså, var detta allt". Fruktig och örtig, kolsyrig munkänsla.

hivemind (697) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 22, 2013
Bottle with bday dinner yesterday at Gnocco with parents and e. Hazy orange pour and consideravle white head. Nice look than I expected. Nicer smell and taste, too, with notes of light fruit and yeast. The slightest bit sour. Nice carbonation and soft, yeasty finish that makes it very drinkable. Almost like a saison.

DruncanVeasey (7098) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAY 14, 2013
Bottle at home, 05/05/13. Streaming gold with a fine slim collar. Juicy banana, clove and bubblegum esters on nose. Spritely juicy stuff with a perfumed banana, spice and hefeweizen thing happening. The Italians are devils at sneaking honey under the radar- it’s beautifully integrated here. Good brew.

gnoff (7664) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - MAY 11, 2013
355 ml bottle at Cheers Pub, Göteborg. On May 10, 2013.
Hazy honey golden color with tiny particles though I didn’t pour the full bottle. Small white head. Sweet, sugary, alcohol, some yeast scent. Sweet, citrus pith, yeast, some phenoles taste. Warming alcohol. Minerals. Spritzy "growing" mouthfeel. Medium bitterness. Bitter aftertaste.
Got the impression of a clean Belgian blonde.
