Sampled on tap at Churchkey, Washington DC. Pours a transparent, copper, gold with a thin, creamy white head. Aroma is sugary, some light belgian yeast, tropical fruits, caramel. Flavor is sweet, sticky fruity, a touch of candy. Finish is medium bodied. Kinda blah.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
(Bottle, 0.33 l, at Pikkulintu) Poured dark brown and cloudy. Head was medium sized and white. Aroma contained intially malts and molasses and after the beer had warmed up a bit the aroma was dominated by paint thinner. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, paint thinner, raisin, mild roastedness, boiled vegetables and mild bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet and bitter. If you drink this drink it very cold and really quickly.

Shared with James. Murky brown purple pour with ample near white. Sweet tart and woody bourbon notes. Fruity tart funk on the tail. Fairly unusual. But good carbonation. One of the better Italian Brews I’ve had.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a murky amber color with a medium beige head. Aroma of caramel and toasted malt. Flavor of caramel and toasted malt. The body is medium and the carbonation is soft. It’s definitely not a bad beer, but this one just didn’t do it for me.
