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.

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.

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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled at Monk’s Café, Stockholm. Pours out in a hazy reddish amber colour with a small white foam. Fruity and very hoppy aroma of grass, blood-grape, pepper and paint with sweet undertones of blood-oranges. Medium-bodied with hoppy notes of blood-grape and grass with touches cookies and yellow fruits. long bitter finish of wet grass, grapefruit and orange-peels. Tasty!

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Redlight Redlight. Pours a clear reddish-amber color with a small, foamy, tan head that settles to a thin, patchy film. Micro-spot lacing dots the glass. Aromas are boozy for a relatively small beer, showing grainy alcohol notes of a base of pale cereal malts, toast, oregano, and an odd, briny sort of funk. Hints of pickles come to mind. Flavors again are grainy, in a alcoholic sort of way, with a strange, mildly tart funk, dusty yeast, and notes of sage and oregano. The palate is thin, bordering on watery, sporting moderate carbonation and a drying, boozy finish. Eh, I’m not impressed in the least bit with this one.

Bottle @ Mondial 2009.
Aroma is sweet candied malt, some wheat notes, deep copper, small toffee head. Taste is a big roasted malt, caramel and nutty. Medium bodied, lucious mouthfeel. Terrific!

Flavour is fruity swampy malt. Hmm, something not matching my palate here.
