Rastacouere (6134) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 6, 2007
Draught at the brewery. Cloudy amber pour covered with the usual Birrificio Italiano charming and enormous, firm, lasting white head. Highly perfumey aroma, almost explosive. It is hard to believe that this holds under 4% ABV. Rosewater and lightly honeyed, toasted maltiness. A most original effort, sensuously sweet and flowery, grainy and with a certain refreshing tartness. Not as complex as its ingredientsís list, but very easy to drink and surely well integrated. Iíll try again from the bottle and will adjust my opinion accordingly, because this is the kind of beer that you rarely face.

KnutAlbert (6163) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 29, 2007
On tap at Isola ella Birra, Milan. Flowery, perfumes, rather sweet. Recommended with strudel, the menu says, yes perhaps. A fine beer for summer sipping, not intrusive, but it is a bit too anonymous to make great marks. Soft is the word. Violets, peaches, a hint of sourness in the tail

larsga (6260) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 28, 2007
Small creamy shiny lasting white head. Hazy opaque amber body. Vague fruity malty aroma. Mealy watery fruity taste with hoppy notes. Aftertaste just fades out. Slightly muddy mouthfeel. Itís OK, but very boring. (0.35l draft at Isola della Birra, Milan.)

JorisPPattyn (7983) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - OCT 1, 2007
Draught Huge very dense & fine head; pinkish-amber beer, orange shine. Very fine, fruity-flowery nose, garden herbs and a hint of lemon(soap), touch of vanilla. Soft-sweet, very lightly fruity taste, with a sharper citrus spike, cider-like, in the bottled version. Again vanilla retronasal. Very lightly bodied, slick, a bit oily, but ending dry and extremely well-attenuated. This is probably one of the best summer drinking beer ever had - big congrats to the brewer for this effort in such a light beer.

I liked this one at Jimacks. Very different. Nose is very floral with some sour berries. Taste is very complex and screams food. Must have been brewed with the kitchen sink, a little bit of this and that. Not luck on the brewers part, I believe they aimed and hit the target. Bottle says violets, roses, and elderberries. Now I donít get roses or violets specificly but some flowers for sure. Thanks beastie.

Dusty yellow-orange. Minty and spicy, herbal . . . barnyard? Itís a mix of a variety of things, but not much flavor comes with it.

1 liter bottle brought to Jimmack Invitationalí07. Bottle is now a year old. Pours a murky dark golden with a small head. Aroma is very original, very spiced ala raw meat rub. Spiky on the nose with lots of green herbs. Taste is a bit more died done, a very herbal, organic, green saison. Lots of flavors, light bodied and amply carbonated. Short organic-earthy aftertaste. Very original, would definitely drink again.

1L bottle, courtesy of argo0. Thanks, Aaron! Pours a cloudy grapefruit appearance; off-white head with good lacing. Tart citrus and grapefruit; spice and floral notes in the aroma. Medium mouthfeel: tart grapefruit and citrus; mild, zesty acidity; yeasty notes. Medium, tart finish, showing grapefruit and some dough.

Bottle courtesy of argo0. Cloudy, somewhat dull orange with an off-white/grayish head. Interesting nose of roses and grandmaís perfume. Tart fruitiness, medium sourness/funk along with notes of roses (and other flowers I canít quite identify), light cherry and some wood character. Pretty dry. Medium to lighter bodied with moderate carbonation. An adventurous and fun brew, even though I didnít quite love it - definitely worth a try.
