3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A simple beer as intended. Light Belgian fruity yeast but also a German feel to it. Pale malts, good drinkable body. Soft carbonation, could be heavier for me. And could be more bitter but that would defeat the purpose of this beer I suppose... (Stylish bottle from Saveur Bière)

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
At a tasting, thanks, small stable bubbly head, cloudy and a little deep yellow color, aroma of sourdough bread, yeast, rubber, fruit and some paper in the back, flavor of fruit and minerals, with some yeast and almonds, feels a bit heavy. Nice but a little unbalanced, could be better.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nel bicchiere è di color giallo quasi paglierino, velato; la schiuma, bianca, è un po’ grossolana, poco persistente, e non lascia nessun pizzo nel bicchiere. Ottimo impatto olfattivo, con un aroma fresco, pungente e pepato, ricco di spezie da lievito che si mescolano a sentori fruttati di polpa d’arancio e, in secondo piano, frutta gialla. In bocca risalta per una carbonazione molto elevata: il corpo è leggero ma non eccessivamente, quasi medio. Bella pulizia anche in bocca; il gusto richiama parzialmente l’aroma di frutta gialla, su di una base maltata di crosta di pane; pungente e vivace, grazie all’apporto speziato e pepato dei lieviti. Il finale è secco e pulito, leggermente amaro erbaceo, ma un po’ troppo veloce e sfuggente, retrogusto breve e poco persistente.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330 ml bottle purchased and drank while traveling on a train. That’s pretty cool. Deep gold, extremely hazy, with a huge, fluffy, forever lasting white head. Great lacings. Fresh/wet hop notes, in that funky and cheesy way. Quite earthy and spicy overall, not so much on the fruity side. Estery (Belgian-ish) and nutty in the background. Slightly astringent upfront, chunky mouthfeel, honey like sweetness, lingering herbal, peppery and almost chili like aftertaste. I wasn’t expecting any warming sensation considering the ABV, but there is a hint of it. Average to lively carbonation, medium body, creamy texture. Complex and dynamic beer, too heavy on the spices for my liking, but not bad at all.
