(750ml bottle) Pours a hazy yellow body with a small white head. Aroma of Gentian flowers, citrus, black pepper, and dustiness. Flavor of florals, biscuit, apricot, tea leaves, and various other herbs. Another interesting brew in Italian brewing.

Bottle, thanks to Bu11zeye.
Pours a cloudy yellow-orange with some sediment floating around and white head. Aroma is very floral. Flavor of grapefruit with an interesting spice, also detecting a little orange?
Has a light-medium body, high carbonation. It was allright...

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle, Monk’s Café, Stockholm) Golden amber colour with brief, foamy, white head. Fruity, floral nose with herbs, caramel and fresh grass. Fruity, herbal taste with notes of flowers, spices and bitter-sweet hints of gentian lingering in the background. Surprisingly light body, fairly dry. Refreshing and nice with balanced notes of gentian.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Wow! Amazing yet subtle pepper and spice streaks throught the nose and palate. Good hop action too; pale ale-like in this respect. Ultra-clean build that could be accused of lacking a little stuffing.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAY 23, 2008 750mL bottle, courtesy of argo0. Thanks, Aaron! Pours a hazy, bright golden-honey color; some light and dark particulates; white head with patchy fine-bubbled lacing. Flowers, honey, and a touch of spice in the aroma. Medium mouthfeel: slightly watery on the edges; floral notes, pepper, and sugary malts; pleasant yeast and esters, but sort of a messy rendition of a floral-dominated beer. Odd stuff, though I’ve come to expect such things from Italian beers. Medium finish: breadiness, spices, and some lingering floral notes.
