3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at Bir&Fud, Rome.
A very interesting "forest floor" and rose petal aroma (coming from Warrior hops, apparently) and then a complex bitter, malty and deliciously hoppy taste with lots of bitterness and fruity hop. Another lovely Del Borgo beer, but I’d say it’s more of an APA than a Saison?

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poco saison, molto bitter come aromi. Si presenta di un dorato spento con schiuma bianca molto evanescente. Al naso note acidule e floreali con un leggero speziato di fondo. In bocca non è tanto carbonata ma il corpo è nella media. Si avvertono note acidule, ma l’amaro erbaceo è invasivo assai, lasciando fin troppa persistenza in bocca per una saison.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Weirdly shaped 33cl bottle at an Osteria in Bologna. Can’t tell you how it looks, bottle was served with no glass. Smells of malt, herbs, grass, straw, coriander, soggy bread. Flavor follows, some grist, some bread, coriander, straw. Dry finish. Fine.

Versione di saison che non è un granchè, birra acidula, si sente il maltato, il sapore degli agrumi non è molto presente

There’s something seriously wrong with this beer, the head is very large oily bubbles, it clings to the side of the glass like detergent, you can leave it out for half an hour and the bubbles barely dissipate (I had this in a clean, dry glass). I had a shocking headache and sickness a few hours after one glass.
