3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a light golden body with a small white head. Nose is that smooth Belgian-like "Italian yeast" profile I’ve come to associate with a lot of Italian craft; along with coconut, saffron and hints of caramel. Taste is chewy caramel tones and vanilla up front, then sweet and slightly estery Belgian yeast tones come in before grass and faint red berries finish the show. Medium to full body, high carbonation. A bit strange, a bit hard to categorize, a bit smooth and a bit boring, all at the same time. In other words: a bit Italian. Prego! :-)

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Vinmonopolet Alna enjoyed at home
Orange hazy, big white head. Smells of spice and herbs, yeast esters and malts. Medium sweet, herbal, nice fruity tones and some yeast in the back. Moderate bitter finish. Lovely herbal influence in the aroma, nice light malts and good yeast fruityness

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
330ml bottle from Vinmonopolet Langnes. Good looking bottle design. Loose, white head. Golden body, slightly cloudy. Fragile lacing. Mixed aroma of bready malts and spiced fruity hops. Sweet peaches and lemon in the flavour profile joined by hints of honey and spices. Dry fruity ending. Medium bodied. Gets rather sweet after a while. Ok, but one bottle was more than enough (at home, 10.05.2013).

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: APR 10, 2013
Location: Draft at Birreria, 4/8/13
Aroma: This one has a fruity aroma, with some wheat and yeast
Appearance: It has a bright orange colored pour with absolutely no head or lace
Flavor: The taste is medium-plus sweet, fairly fruity, and mildly tart as well
Palate: The body is pretty light, and it has an almost a spritzer-like feel to it
Decent, but certainly not special. I definitely wouldn’t seek this one out again, but it is drinkable.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy pale golden colour with thin head. Aroma of bready yeast, citrus and caramel. Thin oily body. This bottle had very poor carbonation and was very flat for some reason. Sweet, tastes a little of oranges with a bit of sourness and a mildly bitter finish.

Draft at Birreria with O’Connell. Buckwheat, orange, wheat, sweet finish and supple but could be better balanced.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled 330ml (Eataly Genova, BB 04/2014)
Sold as "Lurisia 6". Hazy orange color, good white head. Aroma of wood, roses and sea breeze. Light to medium bodied, quite watery palate. Fruity flavor of oranges and peach, but overall quite meh flavors. Clean but weak. Yeasty notes are certainly Belgian, without knowing could easily guess Belgian brewery.
