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

fiulijn (17462) - Vancouver, British Columbia, - FEB 1, 2013
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.

Turtles (1194) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 8, 2016
750ml bottle from Systembolaget, web-order. Almost clear golden with several small bubbles in the glass. Thick long-lasting white head that leaves good lacing. "Beglo yeast" aroma with orange, citrus, coriander and bread. Medium carbonated, really smooth and silky mouthfeel. Fruity taste of orange, apricot jam, grapes, grass, coriander and biscuits. Dry refreshing finish!

Renobob (1462) - Besançon, FRANCE - FEB 5, 2016
Bue en bouteille de 33cl. Blonde légèrement trouble. Mousse blanche. Pale ale classique, corpulence moyenne. Surtout sur le grain. Moyenne sans grand intérêt.

freretoc (1376) - Besançon, FRANCE - JAN 31, 2016
Bue en bouteille de 33cl chez Anne, couleur blonde, belle mousse qui tombe lentement et belle effervescence. Nez sur l’amertume et les saveurs des levures. Attaque sèche et piquante en bouche avec une pointe de levure. Continuité sur le fruit jaune avec une petite pointe de coriandre en fin de bouche, on ressent la bergamote quand la bière se chauffe.

yourilevesque (903) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 20, 2016
Un liquide blond très pâle aux reflets un peu ternes et grisâtres. Un feu d’artifice éclatant dans mon verre dû à la quantité importante de ces minuscules bulles émanent énergiquement du fond de mon verre! Un nez bien simple de blé et de coriandre en grains concassés. C’est également bien simple en bouche et il serait sensé de croire que cette bière est une blanche. Beaucoup de blé, amertume douce, plutôt ronde et soyeuse. Pas de levure banane ici. Un parfum de citron qui mélangé à la coriandre (dont je retiens un goût ferreux qui me rappelle le persil frais) forme un mélange bien méditérranéen. Soyeuse bien qu’effervescente, cette bière simple se boit facilement et sans façons!

A really fresh tasting Belgian style blond, full of Belgian yeast,even a slight funk influence, and a great dry finish.

Ippopodio (108) - ITALY - NOV 28, 2015
Golden Ale tutta italiana, colore giallo paglierino leggermente velato. Al naso è pulita con sentori di agrumi tenui e crosta di pane. In bocca un corpo medio ripropone fedelmente l'aroma. Il finale è fin troppo rapido con una punta di amaro. Se ne potrebbero bere secchiate, nonostante il discreto grado alcolico

labeerinthum (307) - Milano, ITALY - NOV 28, 2015
Bottiglia @ Simei 2015, Milano. L’intensità olfattiva è elevata e la persistenza olfattiva è sufficiente. Il cappello di schiuma compatta a bollicine fini rimane come pizzo sul vetro. Il colore è giallo dorato. Il corpo è pieno. L’amaro è medio. L’intensità gustativa è elevata e la persistenza gustativa è sufficiente. Il gusto è piacevole. Il finale è felpato, secco e pulito. Il retrogusto è intenso. Le percezioni sono di pane, frutta secca e agrumi.
