Super fruity - real glam stuff. Light and quenching with lots of bubblegum style fruit flavours - apple, banana, cherry etc. Well done in that it was never cloying or hard to finish a pint, though more than a few might prove otherwise. Very solid.

On tap at Selezione Birra 2012, Rimini. Pours a copper color with a small off-white head. Big bubbles. Aroma is hoppy and lightly bready. Pine needles. Taste is a bit caramely and bitter. Nice resiny hoppiness. Good carbonation. Almost an IPA for the hops bill.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a perfectly clear deep reddish copper with a perfect 1 finger head that stays for the whole glass. Aroma is gooseberry, blood orange, mild biscuit, deep complex caramel. Taste is an absolutely sublime balance between caramel sweetness, gooseberry, and tangerine notes. Body is medium, medium carbonation, finishes with big caramel sweetness followed by just enough hops to balance. overall, there are very few beers that truly inspire me, but this one was truly something special.
