The first 100% Italian beer made with Italian ingredients. An intentionally simple beer: Italian water, barley malt, hops, yeasts and two Italian spices (bergamot and coriander) which combine to create harmony and originality. A beer which suggests more or less daring combinations, but more importantly marks a turning point in the Italian production of craft beer. Nazionale, is excellent as an aperitif and goes well with any dish. 13.6° EBC 10

Cloudy blond color. This beer has a character of puke, straws, yeast. Bottle shock or real poor beer?

2012-06-17, bottle from Eataly, Bologna; Raccolta Luppolo 2011, 4.5% ABV, 7-4-7-3-14=35
Cloudy bond color with creamy white head, persistent. Mild aroma, some spicy malt and fruity hop, apricots. The mouthfeel is quite astringent because of the high yeast presence; spicy malt flavor, very Belgian, with a moderately sweet and fruity final.
Yeasty and spicy Ale.

NordicV (1749) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - APR 10, 2016
Dimmig bärnstensfärgad öl med smutsvitt skum. Doften är fruktig, kryddig, örtig med hö och jäst. Samma återkommer i smaken. Tendens till tvålighet drar ner betyget något.

Vighals (2645) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - APR 2, 2016
Lys brun tåkete med høyt hvit skum som legger seg fort. Lukter noe urter, trevirke og syrlige bær. Bitter mot besk smak, noe gjær og sitrusskall.

SvanteL (181) - SWEDEN - MAR 9, 2016
Gul, disig med stort fast skum. Fräsch fruktig doft med örter och kryddor, klara jästtoner. Fruktig, frisk smak med citrus, ananas, örter och kryddor, lite jäst, stramt slut med fin beska. En riktigt fin ale i belgisk stil.

330ml bottle (Alus Celle, Riga)
Lovely crisp blonde aroma - more a duvel blondeness than any English version of "golden ale". Super light fresh and crisp body. Lovely light grains, again, with that belgian feel. Super floral hopping. Finis pleasantly biting and bitter - noble hops. Just a little soapy direction later, but I’m not going to let that spoil the fresh perfumey floral experience I’m having. A jewel in this evening’s line-up so far.

Bottle. Gold with a white head. Aroma says this is a Belgian ale: dough, oranges, coriander, white pepper. Sweet with honeyed dough, almost sour citrus - under-ripe oranges, I guess - really quite bitter and fairly spicy at the end. Tasteful.
