2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
06/02/2014 Domus Birrae (330ml bottle). Dorata lievemente torbida, gushing abbondante. Al naso sentori di frutti tropicali, note agrumate, leggermente sporca. In bocca è amara, lievitosa, un po ’stantia, forse una leggerissima infezione. Corpo leggero. Non in perfette condizioni, forse una bottiglia sfortunata? Mi piacerebbe riprovarla.
