This bottom fermented beer is golden yellow in color with floral and herbaceous hop aromas (due to the use of Tettnang Tettnanger blooming hop variety personally selected during harvest time). The finish is sharp with a hoppy bitterness and hints of acacia honey.
Elegant, balanced and gratifying: there is always room for her!

La VIÆMILIA being my first creation, is considered by many our signature brew. Although it may appear a simple lager, its brewing is the longest and most delicate. It is cellared for at least 6 weeks, out of which the first week is for primary fermentation and the remaining 4 to 5 for lagering at 3◦C to allow the young beer to refine. During this last phase hop flowers are added. Every year, at the beginning of September, we travel to personally select hops from the farmers of Tettnang (a small village in the south of Germany renowned for cultivating high quality aroma hops).VIÆMILIA unravels such extraordinary floral and herbaceous hop aromas due to the dry hopping process.

Manuel was inspired to call it VIÆMILIA since this beer is an anthem to our land, oppressed by thick fogs during the winter and withered by a merciless sun during the summer afternoons. The verses of a poet from Bologna helped me to put into words the mental image of a lazy day in June.

“Across wheat fields bent by the wind, between flat hills above the plane”

Gul, grumlig öl med lättare vitt skum. Doften är citrussyrlig och örtig. Detsamma gäller smaken, som kompletteras med viss jästighet och en örtig beska.

Es una cerveza de color amarillo dorado que se caracteriza por aromas florales y herbáceos. Espuma abundante y buen regusto amargo. Refrescante y bien hecho, con un final dulce.

Fantastica, meglio della tipopils, beverinita sorprendente. Molto pulita semplice e con un finale secco ed un amaro persistente. La birra per antonomasia

danielyabu (1395) - União da Vitória, BRAZIL - AUG 21, 2014
huge rocky white head. excellent lacing. mostly diminishing. cloudy thick light yellow body. aroma: light hoppy, flowers, light citrus lemon, clove and vanilla. aroma: moderate sweet. ff: moderate sweet very light bitter; long duration. palate: light medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation and metallic and light astringent finish. Dulçor lembra tutti-frutti e groselha, sem ser artificial. Inusitado e saboroso. Boa qualidade mesmo com um mês além do prazo de vencimento.o paladar não apresenta o ligeiro azedume que o aroma sugeriu, felizmente. 90 s

Bottle pour into a lager glass. Thanks lukaduke! Pours a somewhat hazy yellow with a white head of foam.. Pretty good retention. Dry yeasty and lemon zest are in the aroma. Sourdough bread as well. The taste is crisp and subtly bitter. The flavors meld together very nicely. Clean and refreshing. Velvety mouthfeel with low to medium carbonation.

Very hazy yellow. Slowly rising bubbles. Pure white head laces great. Aroma of spring water and moss. Crisp bite mild sweetness and a clean, uplifting bitter finish.

Tap. I’m not the most familiar with this beer style but I found this rather nice and well balanced. Worth a try

Draft @ BQ 44, Milano. Dorée claire, col blanc léger. Arôme offre un bouquet sympa de maïs avec un bouquet élégant de houblons nobles et fleuris sur un rétro légèrement épicé. Le tout rappel un peu le côté drêche des malts et ce léger nez de carapils. Palais garde ce côté allemand noble, carapils, sec avec une belle effervescence. Ici un petit profil houblonné rappelant un peu le Spalter de par un caractère on ne peut plus noble entre herbacé et fleuri.
