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

75cl bottle, lot#L027/120, BB 03/2014. Dorée, col beige moyen et onctueux. Arôme présente un bouquet belge agréable rappelant presque une bière d’abbaye, le tout est fleuri et houblonné, fruité léger entre citronné et ester. Palais houblonné fleurie t amer avec un beau profile houblonné, ce dernier reste présent ajoutant un côté herbacé avec un petit résiduel doux belge et un rappel à des feuilles de thé. Le chemin est loin derrière des italiennes mal balancées, ici, on retrouve u bel exemple de style belge avec un petit qcq chose en plus, légère et facile à boire.

Ragnampiza (673) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - MAY 15, 2015
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.

Peter_L (1051) - SWEDEN - APR 4, 2015
Flaska hos god vän, tack Frode! Gyllengul vätska med vitt och tjock skum. Poängavdrag för lätt grådaskigt inslag. Doft av citrus och gräs. Hög initial sötma som möter en neutral och ren beska. Avslutas av en gräsig och kryddig ton.
