Has a somewhat herbal nose, mixed with some floral notes and a bit of ripe fruit and honey. Nose really matches the flavor, rosewater, a bit of honey, and apple skins. Its quite different. I love the idea behind it, and I love recreations of historical styles, but I just donít think it all came together.

chicagodri (1683) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 20, 2008
Bought this bottle thinking it was a sour...so I guess I was kind of disappointed. Spicy and fruity aroma. Pours a cloudy orange color with a thin head. Some sweet apple flavors...almost a little too sweet. Different and a decent beer though, just donít know if I will try it again.

mvcramer (243) - Lexington, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 22, 2008
Something different... looks and tastes a bit like a cider to me. Nice crisp light golden pour with a frothy white head. Strong sugary apple notes and a bit of funk to the aroma as well. Taste is dry and somewhat crisp, with some sourness prevalent. If this one was billed as a sour, I wouldnít have minded it, but I didnít care much for the sour bite given what I expected. Good beer, not great. And like I said at the top - itís something different.

Davinci (295) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 18, 2008
Cloudy golden ale with small bubbly white head. Mild aroma of banana and a bit of funk. Also notes of red apples and a touch of apricot. Flavor is bright and bubbly initially. Crispy sweet apple flavors and a subdued banana note. Red apple peel flavor lingers after each sip. I prefered the sour edition I believe, but canít find my notes on it unfortunately. Another good showing for the up and coming Italians.

vyvvy (5381) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JAN 23, 2008
This was a different and very enjoyable beer. Pours orange with a patchy white head. The aroma is very perfumy and powdery with ginger and many other spices - very smooth aroma. Medium / thin body thatís fairly crisp with tight carbonation. The flavor starts very spiced, but it is gentle spices, unlike the normal sharp spices in most beers. The taste is much like the aroma with crispness and is very refreshing with citric lemon / orange. The finish is lightly powdery. Nice, unique and interesting.

watchnerd (22) - San Mateo, California, USA - JAN 12, 2008
This beer almost defies classification. Good head that deflates quickly, rich if murky color, and HUGE chunks of yeast upon pouring. Not much lacing. Some say it is best with food, but I think the opposite: drink this by itself to get the full experience. Not much hop presence, if any. Aromas of rose water, nutmeg, and feminine musk. A bit like sniffing panties while drinking beer.

So, this is kind of strange. Needs hops! Taste is slightly sour, artificially sweet, spicy. Aroma is spicy but not overwhelmingly so, but itís kind of nice. Eminently drinkable, artificially sweet. Finish is just too sweet and kind of fades away in an unremarkable way.

Rictus (126) - Dothan, Alabama, USA - DEC 6, 2007
cloudy whit-like an bubbly with a huge head. Dusty grainy spiced smell. Bitter dusty taste, slight caramel. Spikey moderate mouth feel. Not an everday beer but good.

Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - NOV 28, 2007
750 ml bottle. A hazy blonde near amber beer with a rich and persistent white head. Strange and peculiar aroma with spicy (ginger, pepper) and fruity (overall oranges) notes. There is also something I canít explain, similar to wheat and probably the kamut. Unusual flavours too, spicy and fruity (peaches, citric fruits) with almost no traces of hop. Light to medium body, juicy. soft carbonation, long sweet finish and alcohol well hidden. Light bitterness and acidity. Original, interesting and well done.

Bottle. Hazy yellow colour with a medium white head. Aroma adn taste of malts, fruits and spice. Lasting finish. Different but good.
