Thin coarse white head quickly disappears. Hazy pale yellow body. Light mealy sweetish fruity aroma. Dry-sweetish mealy fruity taste with light malty notes, a bit watery. No aftertaste. Not much taste at all. Boring. (0.75l bottle at Isola della Birra, Milan.)

0,75l bottle, bought in Pistoia. Rather dark yellow colour, cloiudy, large head. Aroma of citrus fruit peel and grapefruity. Refreshing taste, malty, fruity, flavours of grapefruit and spices (coriander). Lovelly!

Bevuta a pasto in compagnia, mi ha fatto un’ottima impressione, ma purtroppo non sono riuscito a goderne più di due bicchieri. La ricomprerò e me la gusterò da solo, comunque per quel che ho potuto notare piacevolissima, molto dissetante ma tutt’altro che anonima.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Sweet orange aroma, light spicy. Hazy yellow color, small white foamy head with little retention. Intensive orange flavor, sweetness, light acid touch and very spicy. Intensive, dry coriander flavor. Long astringent, dry and spicy finish. A very good summer beer and a real good witbier.

Bottle (waaaaay past its use by date) -- Typical pale yellow of the style with a large white head with little retention but a fair bit of lacing and a lot of carbonation. Crisp sour aroma with a hint of coriander at the end. Palate is watery yet surprisingly round. Flavour reflects the aroma but with more obvious citrus and coriander. Not bad in small quantities by itself or in larger quantities with pizza, otherwise it would get a bit cloying. I’m not a big fan of Italian beers or this style, but this was a pleasant surprise. The beer is a hell of a lot better than the translation of the commercial description -- I tasted not a one Belgian root!

Birra particolarissima, con uno spiccato sentore di coriandolo. Strana sul palato, piacevolmente astringente, profumata e gustosa.

Birra Bianca 5% in 750ml bottle, in a restaurant on Isola Tiberina, Roma, Italy.
Organic, pale golden body, large foaming head, citrus flavour, silky palate, granny smith notes that linger on the palate. Best beer I had in Rome. Shared with Mr. B on winter’s day in 2007.

Estremamente deludente, troppo astringente, alla lunga nauseante, ho faticato a finirla. Se mi dovesse ricapitare di trovarmela davanti bevo acqua.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Fully hazy yellow beer with small yellowish head. Coriander, way too much. Sweet background nose with a pinch of acidity. Coriander soup. Isaac is inspired by Hoegaarden and some Walloon witbeers, but manages to put Hoegaardens smaller failing ideosyncracies to a farce. Sticky, wheatslickness, sweet aftertaste. Never will be my type of beer. Already years ago, this was my first Italian craftbeer; thank God I’ve learned there are others. On this, my opinion will hardly ever change, I’m afraid.

Bottled, in Italy. Aromatic and refreshing. A very refreshing blonde/wheat beer, great for a summers day. Can compete with the best wit beers aut there IMHO.
