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!

Lots of citrusy orange and peppery spice in the aroma. Flavor nds up being sort of sweet with even a little bit of bananas breaking through the orange peel and allspice. Almost tropical fruit tasting with a little spice. Good.

I brought this beer to the last Heavyweight open house because not too many people rated it. Poured a light orange-brown with a decent off-colored head. At first I was a little sceptical because this bottle had a lot of floaties, but pleasantly surprised. Malts and fruits with a mxture of spiciness.Decent.

Well, I don’t what constitutes this style, but this beer was not good to me (it may have been old). Little aroma. Taste in mouth starts out ok, but once you swallow it this is very bad. Has a pretty untatsty finish. Really upset I spent $10 on this.

Pours gold and hazy with a white head. Smells breaddy with some fruitty elements. Tastes fruity with some nice spicy elements.

mildy sweet yeasty aroma. some sourness. orange gold with vigorous carbonation and a medium sized fizzy white head. flavor is yeasty and sort of belgian like with some peach, apricot notes. sour candyish finish. despite the carbonated look to it, the mouthfeel is very smooth and watery. decent.
