Hazed orange topped with a decent off white swirl.
Nose is straw, light puke, pink berry, floral notes.
Taste comprises bitter fruit, farmy, light wood, faint citric peel, hay.

Ok ... hides the ABV well but on the other hand doesn’t deliver a lot on said ABV.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 75cl. A dense, white head sits on top of a lightly unclear, golden body. The aroma has a strange fruityness, in a quite nice way though. Meaty malts in the back. The flavor is mostly fruity, still with the same strange fruity touch found in the nose, as well as a little maltyness and a bitter touch. Full-bodied and quite dry. Some bitterness in the else fruity finish. Judging from the commercial description this beer definitely don’t comply with the German purity law, but that’s perfectly fine with me. I still don’t know if I think it was a well performed experiment, but it’s definitely far from bad, and the use of ingredients are certainly expected considering it’s an Italian brewery. 130208
