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

2012-08-20, courtesy of Jesper; Raccolta Luppolo 2011, L050/120 Apr 2014, 6.5% ABV, 5-3-5-2-9=24
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.

Scopey (12711) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 17, 2016
Bottle at the JK Ldn tasting. Thanks to Matteo. It pours hazy dirty blonde with a thick white head. The aroma is earthy, white bread, cracker, toasted grain, must and soft fruity vibe (including apple). The taste is dry, bitter, white bread, minerals, lemon, some must, wood and white sugars and a touch of alcohol. Medium body and moderate, foamy carbonation..simple, easy - drinking Belgian Ale.

Leighton (18720) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 6, 2016
Bottle shared at the JK Tasting - Craft Beer Co., Islington. Many thanks to Fergoose. Pours unclear yellow with a big, foamy white head. The nose has lots of yeast, lemon peel and dough. Medium sweet flavour with sugary dough, yet more yeasty character. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Finishes with, yes, sugary dough, white bread, yeast, minimal hop expression. Fine, just very simplistic.

mice (819) - FINLAND - JUL 23, 2016
Utuinen, hailakan kullankeltainen olut vaahtoaa runsaasti. Kupliva vaahto kuitenkin katoaa nopeasti kokonaan. Tuoksussa vahvaa mausteisuutta ja vehnäistä viljaa. Maku viljainen, hedelmäinen, runsashiilihappoinen. Hieman raskas yleisilmeeltään, vaikka maistuva onkin.
