COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Una delle ultime creazioni nate nel Vecchio Birrificio: una birra decisamente bizzarra, che fin dal nome ricorda formule magiche (ricordate il Salagadula magibula bidibi bodibi bu di Cenerentola?) e pozioni... da favola! Caratteristica principale, il massiccio uso di luppoli con un cocktail di diverse varietà che da’ luogo a profumi straordinari e ad una carica di amaro davvero notevole, con ben 100 IBU.

fiulijn (14978) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 6, 2012
Bottle at Danske Ølentusiasters Ølfestival 2012, Copenhagen
Hazy amber color, with generous head. Earthy aroma, a bit dusty, some cheesy hops, but deep, penetrating. Very smooth mouthfeel; caramel flavor, but still too much yeast, that gives some astringency; strong hop character, with bitter oranges.
A bit too yeasty, but well balanced and quite good. To try when cleaner.
