3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

Bottle at Osteria del Tempo Perso. Murky golden body with a thin white head. Aroma of Lager, wheat and yeast. Flavour of honey, banana and yeast. Medium body with a powdery mouthfeel. Soft fizz. I found this to be not too dissimilar to a Hefeweizen.

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)
