L’eleganza del farro dei Monti della Duchessa.
Birra prodotta con il farro, tradizionalmente coltivato nel territorio del Parco Regionale dei Monti della Duchessa. Si presenta dorata, con riflessi aranciati, appena velata; la schiuma è abbondante e pannosa. Al naso è molto ampia, fruttata (banana, ananas, frutta tropicale) e floreale, con un leggero e piacevole pepato. In bocca la gasatura è fine, c’è una leggera acidità e il corpo è adeguato. La luppolatura è moderata, il finale molto piacevole, fresco.

Birra non filtrata, non pastorizzata. Forma sedimento naturale. Ingredienti: acqua, malto d’orzo, farro (23%), luppolo, zucchero e lievito. Rifermentata in bottiglia.

Maris (1383) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - MAR 17, 2014
From a 750ml bottle on 16/3/2014 (shared with Butz). Pours a cloudy light golden with a big white foamy head. The aroma features some bready malt and a touch of fruit. The flavour features more bready malt, some light citrus, tropical and stone fruit, and some mild spice. The palate is quite creamy and the carbonation is reasonably lively. I’ve enjoyed other beers from this brewer more, but this is still pretty good stuff.

Vanz (189) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 22, 2014
Tart malty aroma, light orange coloured body with a creamy white head. Lots of spicy and earthy hops come through on the palate, produces some new world lager style hop flavours. Really smooth in the mouth, nice and drinkable Saison, but lacking the complexity of some of the greats.

Pours a cloudy light golden orange with fine white head. Nose is slight citrus, banana and a bit of stone fruit. Taste is more stone fruit, a bit of citrus and banana esters and a bit of clove. Light and fairly interesting.

BlackHaddock (6336) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JAN 8, 2014
Draught in Open Baladin, Rome on 10th Dec 2013. Almost clear pour, golden hue to it, on top a smooth white covering. This was a little maltier and richer in texture than most Saison beers I’ve had, not that it’s a big total of beers. This had those ’farmyard’ esters and earthy features that summarize this style so well, so it wasn’t a long way off the Belgian ones that I’ve had. Different and after a Gose style beer in the same bar I was beginning to warm towards the Italian craft beer scene. This is a very pleasant brew and I’m really pleased I had a large glass full of it.

(Bottle) Hazy yellow mber wit decent white head. Nice refreshing citrusy aroma. Pleasant palate, refreshing carbonation but with some body to it. Nice taste, fruity and tangy with pleasant light malt and little bitterness. Easy drinking, and elegant.
