3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at Taste Firenze. Strange vegetal nose, but with a flavor of sweet orange and saffron, and peaches. Dry, minerally finish. Smells awful but comes around to be interesting in the end, if not exactly nice.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled. Almost clear golden, small head. Saffrom dominates heavily in the aroma. Sweet and phenolic, medium bodied with fairly clean mouthfeel.Fruity, but above all dominated by saffron. Rather peculiar, Iím not really sure I like it.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Strong saffon aroma, with associations to fish soup and rice, of course, but thatís just how Iím trained to percieve it.
A full bodied golden ale is used as a base.
Does it work?
No, not really. The saffron flavour is too strong for the beer. It overwhelms everytung, leaving nothing but a warm spicy saffron flavour. Some apricots and clementines in the background. I think there is some ginger, too, but it might be the saffron having the same warming effect.

Beautiful color, hazy, light gold; small head. There is surely saffron aroma, still, sweet, but also malt, and the two clash a bit. Light malt flavor, with light sourness and vegetables (the bottle is now too old), but still with a shade of saffron. Short final.

Now it shows a mixed aroma of saffron and plastic, some alcohol too. Medium sweet flavor, low bitterness.

Cloudy blond color. Intense aroma, saffron, malt, hop, alcohol; nice. Medium body, dry mouthfeel, simple flavor. Weak final, but with shades of saffron. Original, interesting, but it would be better if sweeter.
