3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
750 ml bottle from BG Birra, served in a tulip glass. Pale sunrise orange, quite clear, with an average, creamy bright white head, which dissipated fairly quickly leaving a nice and thick ring of foam. Spicy and fruity aroma, notes of citrus, peppery yeast, mild spices (star anise and cinnamon), sweet biscuity malts and fruit esters. Overall the nose is almost tripel like, without alchool or darker fruits. Quite sweet and sirupy in the mouth, slightly astringent, while remaining fruity and almost citric. Not as spicy as the aroma indicated. Malty and slightly warming aftertaste. Soft carbonation, medium body, slightly oily texture. I would have prefered more dryness, less sugary sweetness and a bit more of intensity all around. Not bad anyway.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Orange nose. Cloudy amber, thin head. Whole orange and lemon flavor. Not really distinctive and it’s pricey. It tastes good though.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle shared at the WWGT2D? Charlottesville tasting, 4/5/14. Pours a hazy amber color with a large fizzy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of honey, nuts, grain, green notes, citrus. The taste is lime jello, candied citrus, spice. Thin bodied, slight lingering spice. Reminds me of Starr Hill Lucy, which is not a good thing. Weird beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dalle reminiscenze dell’antichità emerge l’eredità di questo antico cereale, l’enkir, sapientemente realizzata in questa birra. Il gusto ha un impatto mediamente dolce, con note floreali legate da un carattere resinoso e morbidamente acidulo, dovuto al farro. Si tratta di un sapore e di un aroma senza vette, misurato e discreto, che la rende una birra tranquilla ma piacevole.
