3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to Kenny. It pours murky hazy rose with a decent off-white head. The nose is soft, juicy, floral/hibiscus, light jam, bubblegum, light plastic and Welch’s grape juice. The taste is crisp, bitter, toasty, light spice, hibiscus, sweet, juicy, grape skin and rhubarb. Medium + body and highish carbonation. A touch restrained overall, but enjoyable nonetheless. Hides abv pretty well also.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, bought @ Kolding Vinhandel.
Pours clear orange with a small head. Aroma is vinoius, light cherrues, a bit of wet socks, honey, thyme and somewhat dusty. Medium carbonation, fine dry and creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is better than the aroma. Fairly soft caramel malts, clear honey and light vinious. Well balanced with a light fruity tartness and varming alcohol. Quite elegant, really.

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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle shared at CBC Clerkenwell 10/9/2015. Many thanks to Kenny for this one. Translucent yellow / straw coloured pour with a lasting thin white head . Aroma is solvent alcohol, with apple, grape and apricot fruits. Flavour is composed of Belgian yeast, woody, tart apple, apricot and grains. Palate is grainy, spicy and highish carbonation, tangy grape. Not a huge fan of this.

25/11/2010 - 75cl bottle @ horeca expo 2010
Cloudy light amber coloured beer, little white head. Aroma: malts, grasses, spices, some hops. MF: soft carbon, medium to full body. Soft creamy texture. Taste: first sweet malts, then some spices, hop bitters and fruits. Aftertaste: fruity, citrus fruits, hop dryness. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of this beer.
Note: I also had another sample from a bottle with yellow label, with lots of American hops. It was even better, but alas no tasting notes. :(
