Una variazione della normale ReAle, i luppoli sono diversi soprattutto nella quantità: elevatissima, ma quello che cambia maggiormente è la tecnica di utilizzo del luppolo. Tutto il luppolo viene utilizzato negli ultimi 10 minuti di bollitura, in una quantità 3 volte superiore rispetto alla Re Ale. Il risultato è un’esplosione di profumi che vanno dall’agrumato al resinoso (resina di pino ed incenso). In bocca secca, immediatamente arriva l’amaro per poi lasciare il passo ad una bellissima nota di mandarino che rimane estremamente persistente. Crea assuefazione!

Draft at Bavarian Lodge. Always excited to get a taste of the Italian craft beer action. In its tulip, this is a cloudy, lighter bodied pale ale, with a thin layer of foam and some lace at the edges. Smell does not have the hoppy slap in the face of an APA. Rather, there’s a note of fresh cherries, then some citrus hop. I should rate it higher for being understated, perhaps, but this is what it is. Instead, i say the taste is very unusual and delicious. I’m thinking, wrongly no doubt, of the newer hop varieties with kiwi or more tropical fruit notes. Malt is crystal with some aromatics, likely into a Belgian mix, or more likely what you get when an Italian brewer stops trying to imitate Heineken. yes, clearly a warm ale ferment, with fruity esters and lovely tasty malts, just a little bit thick. Touch of black pepper at the finish. Cheers, I say again cheers to growing craft beer scenes in new countries. This one’s a keeper, though it may be too delicate to have in a bottle.

330 ml bottle bought at HK Brew Craft in Central.

Preparation: fridged bottle; Rested in room temperature for 7 minutes. Popped at 10°C (within recommended temperature range) onto the Duvel tulip.

Looks: Cloudy hazy golden honey colour with thin trace of yeast sediments; One finger head and white foam which lasts for 2 minutes; Beautiful sticky lacing with near zero carbonation.

Aroma: Very fragrant sweet ale malt, with grapefruit, strong passion fruits, tangerines, floral, strong honey, sugar, strong pine, strong resin, yeast, faint lemon and thin grass.

Taste: Medium sweet and Ale malt, with strong grapefruits, caramel, strong floral, molasses, pine, resins, light earth, light biscuits, yeast, lemon, fairly strong bitter hops and grass.

Body: Mid to light body. Thin, slightly slick and fairly oozy palate.

Mouth Feel: Good strong Ale maltyness in a thin, quite watery body. Good caramel backbones. Grapefruit is omnipresent. Strong Cascade floral and nice moderate sweetness. Pine and resin strong but restrained, much like an APA. Good lemon to round. Easy and comfy!

Hoppiness: Grapefruit, strong passion fruits, tangerines, floral, strong pine and strong resin in nose. Strong grapefruits, strong floral, pine, resin, light earth, lemon and grass in taste. Bitterness is close to strong for a lasting, astringent bitter sweet finish.

After Taste: Fairly dry. Piney and bitter to mouth.

Comments: Compared to Re Ale, this one is watery but the maltyness is all there, with excellent 3C fruity aroma, and fairly expressive piney oozy taste. Hard to pin down whether it’s an APA or IPA, but either way it’s well-made, easy to down and enjoyable. Nice enough!

on tap @ Ei8ht Ball / Bellevue KY --- Hazy medium amber color, off-white head cover, broken sheets of lace. Taste is malt with a burst of caramel that moves through the palate to mild European hops to finish. Not enough hops to blot out the malt, leaving a satisfying, balanced brew. Solid.
