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.

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.

Niksko (591) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JAN 9, 2014
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 (6104) - 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.

Pyobon (1268) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 4, 2014
(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.

From 640 ml bottle. Appearance: A slightly cloudy golden-amber with a fwhite head which leaves quite some lacing. Aromas yeast, lemon, hay,and floral notes Taste: starts with light citrus towns which go over in round more diverse slightly sour fruity and grassy notes with a bit of malty sweetness. Not that sour for a saison Medium body and carbonation.

Jado (760) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - NOV 20, 2013
From 640 ml bottle. Pours a slightly cloudy golden-amber with a fluffy white head that leaves good lacing. Light carbonation. Aromas of lemon, hay, funk and floral notes. Taste is crisply citric up front but then rounds out with flowers, apple, cut grass and some faint orange. Medium bodied, with a gentle pepper and lemon aftertaste. Maybe not a wholly traditional saison, but really good all the same.

MatteoD. (137) - ITALY - OCT 6, 2013
Bottiglia. Schiuma cremosa, aderente e di veloce dissolvenza, aroma fruttato, erbaceo, maltato, colore ambrato scuro, al palato corpo medio e carbonazione lieve, inizialmente dolce con note di caramello, frutta secca, pera, mela e poi finale amaro e luppolato, non male. Una buona birra a doppia fermentazione, ricorda lo stile di certe birre belghe.
