4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
75cl bottle. Quite a special one here. Pours a bright orange color with an abundant creamy white head. Long lasting foam. Aroma is on the sweet side with a ’predominance of caramel notes and fruits. Peaches and rad brries in the nose with molasses and caramel. Taste is sweet again with a slight tartness in the back. Burnt sugar, fruits and some yeast. Slight alcohol burn too. Full mouthfeel and good amount of carbonation. Overall, very interesting, also if the wheat character is not up front and the fruits could be pushed further to me.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very fine & dense head with a faint pinkish sheen; orange-amberish beer with again a faint rosy/pink haze; textbook lace. Alcoholic, fruity (wild fruit, unripe raspberry, orangezeste), and greenery. Again unripe or wild, tart fruit. Faint artichoke-like flavour with some more pale malts and other grain. In a discreet way, vinous. Quite carbonated MF, some alcohol, but again discreet. Medium bodied at best, seems well-attenuated. Fine, but not really outstanding. Wheat is not obvious. I wonder what the Garrett Oliver connection might be. The Italian is too exotic for me.

Bottle at Cafe Buitenlust, Oirschot. Italian beer tasting presented by Benito. Smell fresh, light sweetness, light fruity. Taste the same. Almost a little champagne-like. Good carbo and body.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasted this at a special tasting session at Café Buitenlust, Oirschot, given by Benito.
It’s quite an experience to drink this one. A colour i hadn’t seen before, very luxurious glasses. Doesn’t have to much of a smell except for something sweetish, honey like. Some people loved it, but to me it was a bit to watery and lacking in taste. Special one though.

Really good!

Mi è piaciuta. La trovo originale e ben fatta. Bello il colore rosa arancio. Al naso si sentono i frutti selvatici utilizzati ed una acidità che fa pensare ad una lambic. In bocca attacco dolce, poi secca ed acida, comunque il tutto ben equilibrato; nasconde benissimo i 10 gradi.
