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.

birra ad alta fermentazione dal colore giallo chiaro leggermente opalescente, schiuma pannosa. profumi freschi/citrici/ che ritroviamo anche in bocca: inizialmente acidula e fresca, viraggio sull’agrumato leggermente abboccato (dal miele), finale secco, "simile" ad una blanche . eccellente prodotto, strepitoso aperitivo

Lele (255) - Padova, ITALY - JAN 26, 2015
ASPETTO: biondo limpido con schiuma bianca, abbastanza fine e persistente. AROMA: buon aroma di floreale, fruttato, con delle inaspettate ma piacevolissimo note di tabacco. GUSTO: molto buona. Sentori fruttati predominanti insieme a del mieloso. Leggero agrumato.

bartlebier (2678) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - APR 30, 2015
355ml bottle, bb? - from Mondial de la Bière, Mulhouse 2014. Beautiful design and label, on this rare occasion mercifully to be had for less than a modernistic design premium. - Honey golden, white bready pour, good lacing. Some herbal orange blossom, wild honey, special pale ale malt aromatics and a tiny whiff of alcohol - more delicate than many an ester-pungent BE Belgian ale. Flavour is nothing less than spectacularly subtle, delicate (again), fluffily layered: diluted mandorla biscotto, indeed orange peel and honey blossom, gorgeous German noble hop profile, integrated like a miniature gastronomic dish (caramel cantuccini dunked in aranciata, jazeker). Just the right strength, excellent drinkability and silky mouthfeel like a corduroy caress by your favourite long-gloved Italian cornuta. Lingering pollen-floral finish. Wish I’d opened this sooner...

Rodriguez (315) - Quito, ECUADOR - DEC 29, 2014
A golden beer with high carbonation. Low head retention. Medium body. Spicy aroma, seems to be fermented with wit yeast. It has some honey residual sweetness. A good beer, next time will pair it with pizza, or something Italian. Simple but excellent.

DruncanVeasey (7712) - NUNEATON, TOP, 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.

dogfishho (669) - Bloomfield, New Jersey, USA - JUN 23, 2013
This is a beer that builds and builds. Off the jump it tastes like a really standard Belgian pale ale with an average hop profile but there is a palate coating feeling there that allows the honey, hibiscus, and rose hips to come through. Nice and complex when you pay attention. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tried in bottle. Bought in Austria. Colour is hazy yellow/ amber. Thin white head which goes fast. Aroma is floral, malts, yeast and fruits. Taste is spicy, orange, honey, floral and some bitterness. Very light beer, slight oily mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Nice sweet/bitter balance in finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
