Drake (9999) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - APR 5, 2014
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.

Rune (9095) - Tromsø, NORWAY - APR 17, 2012
100ml sample, 6% abv., from tap at Open Baladin. Unclear amber with a layer at the top. Fragile lacing. Fruity nose with lighter notes of spices. Mild juicy fruits in flavour added by semi-tart apples. Sweet and spicy to the swallow. Summer feel and session-like (Roma 31.03.2012).

Scopey (8540) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2014
Bottle at T Bois 40. It pours murky golden orange with a small white head. The nose is soft, fruity, tangerine, marmalade, juicy, candy, berry and dried mango. The taste is crisp, bitter, tart fruits, apricot, peachy, and sugar with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. On the sweet side, but not bad. Ok.

JorisPPattyn (8343) - Ursel, BELGIUM - APR 9, 2012
Medium, whitish head over hazed orange beer. Citrus (orange), wheat, spices, orangeliqueur. Again citrus & wheat (or speciality grain...) mainly; possibly coriander, but restrained (enough). Still perfumey, and rather slanted towards the artificial. Warming up, ginger. Soft, velvety MF despite the more than adequate carbonation. The problem with del Borgo - and more Italian craftbrewers - is that their flavours are often a bit forced. This is no exception.

jercraigs (8334) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 13, 2009
2009-06-07. Hazy golden body, small white head. Aroma is mild, interesting floral character, light hops, mild pale malt. (6+) Flavour is mild, light bitterness has an interesting not quite tangy note. Mild pale malts, light sort of floral but not quite character that lingers in the finish and aftertaste. Average to light palate. Okay. Bottle, Mondial 2009, Montreal

BMan1113VR (7898) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JAN 5, 2012
On tap. Pours with a very lightly hazed golden yellow hue with a white head. Aromas are floral, perfumey, coriander, potpourri, lightly grainy, vanilla. Flavors are of lavender and coriander. Mild phenols, light fruit, perfume and a bit grainy. Crisp, lively bubbles (too lively), dry. Tasty.
