2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JAN 5, 2007 Bottle at St Albans Beer Festival, September 2006. Hazy gold colour. Very spicy, peppery aroma with what I could swear to be mothballs in the equation too. Just the same on the palate with some sweet, tropical fruit touches. There’s something perfumed and a bit cosmetic running throughout. A rather odd beer that, I have to admit, wasn’t really to my taste.

Pours bright gold into a tulip. Head quickly subsides. Sour aspirin aromas. Dry and medium bodied with a lasting sour lemon and ginger finish. Similar in flavor to Fantome Printemps.

75 cl bottle bought at Mentana, Parma. Cloudy golden with a thick offwhite head. Spicy fruit aroma with pepper notes. Pepper-spiced fruit flavours, sweet yet with a dry spicy finish. Medium body, well-carbonated. Original taste but a bit too spiced.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
After the sediment poured in this was a cloudy orange body with a moderate head and good lacing. Aroma is spicy with notes of fruit. I woulda guessed coriander but the kamut works too I guess.. haha. Fairly light in flavor and body, but unoffensive. No real flaws, but could have been a lot more interesting. Sorta reminded me of Leffe Blonde with a huge price tag.

First things first - I think they need to hire a graphic designer to create labels capable of doing the bottle and beer justice. On to the beer: I went in to this completely blind. I’d had and enjoyed Super Baladin, but was not expecting a sour beer from Nora. Immediate tart aroma with some floral complexity. A little thin on the palate, but a very drinkable beer. Seemed a little one-dimensional, but still very tasty. Seems like an energetic little sister to a real mind-blower like Panil Barrique.

Probably one of my favorite Italian beers I’ve rated so far. Very enjoyable in a bottle large enough to share with a friend or two (doubt I could have finished it off alone). Pours out a bright yellow/orange color, nice white head with aroma of ginger and yeast with a floral angle that keeps things interesting. There is also a bit of citrus fruit floating around which I found interesting. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, very refreshing. Flavors are spiceu and lively with notes of ginger, lemony, herbal with a nod to the alcohol content noticeable. Good job guys! Finally an Italian beer to cheer about!
