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.

A bit unusually, but nice and refreshing.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle share at CBC Clerkenwell, many thanks to Ken. 10%. Hazy peachy orange, still, small foamy white head. Aroma is varnish, white spirit, grape juice and rhubarb. Body is light, tingly carbonation, slightly foamy. Taste is varnish, glue, rhubarb tart. Quite strange. Not sure what they were aiming for, but whatever it was I think they missed. Still, it’s not bad.

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.

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.
