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.

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.

willisread (834) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAY 12, 2015
Bottle from Seiyu 150 yen with a best buy date of June 2016. Value is excellent. Poured into a Duvel tulip. Pours a fairly clear orangish golden color with a huge off-white soapy head that dissipates and leaves a nice rim around the beer. Very floral notes of apple, pear and orange with some clover honey as well. Light to light-medium body with lively carbonation. Very bright and floral on the palate with a nice dry and lightly sweet finish (the honey I suppose). Very solid Belgian.

Jananise (84) - - MAY 6, 2015
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

bartlebier (2559) - 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...
