Arancio opalescente con riflessi rosati, schiuma bianca eccezionalmente persistente vista l'alta gradazione alcolica.
Aroma di lievito da champagne, miele, leggera banana matura.
Al palato stesse caratteristiche, in un secondo momento si sentono chiaramente le visciole ed il miele, sul finale bella nota di frumento.
Corpo leggero, molto carbonata.
Molto elegante e delicata.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Valkendorfsgate, Bergen. Pours a cloudy orange body with a large creamy white head. Nose is complex notes of dark and red berries, syrup, raisins, white sugar, caramel and hints of straw and dusty grass. Taste is white sugar, raisins, plums, red berries, alcohol, straw and hints of candi sugar, honey and dry yeast tones. Medium to full body, high carbonation. Once again, an Italian experimental ale full of gusto and with little to no direction. Is this a mead, fruit beer or Belgian strong ale? Only an Italian would now. Or, at least, not me. Not horrible, just very strange and not too wonderful in any way.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle courtesy my gf, bought at a bottle shop in Copenhagen. Pours a hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma of belgian yeast, spices, floral notes, honey, caramel, toffee with a hint of alcohol. Taste is toffee, cherries, almonds, honey, floral, spicy, yeasty, plums, bready malt with a well balanced bitterness. Medium body with a medium to high carbonation. Very different and interesting beer expected a more fruity beer from the description but got a more malt forward, belgian one with some floral hints. Not bad at all and very different from most offerings out there.
