Thanks to JK for bringing this unique brew. Very light refreshing saison style beer. Sour and some barnyard aromas. I believe this is more of an acquired taste, but I thought this was a decent effort. Some olive in the flavor, meat, cheese, yeast, very interesting and unique.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Looks like I’m the first one outside of Italy to rate this beer. Big, 1 liter swingtop bottle. Hazy orange color with a medium off white head. Spicy, floral aroma with a bit of citrus and a touch of celery. Mildly tart flavor, with the spices and floral aspects somewhat muted. Citrusy and quite refreshing. Most who sampled this with me at the HW open house initially thought the beer kind of boring. After a while however, the beer started to become much more enjoyable. Perhaps it was due to the fact that it was 90 degrees outside and were drinking some big beers, but it was a nice change of pace.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle, 4% ABV. A hazy orange/pale amber beer with a large, rocky and mostly lasting white head. Powerful and nice aroma, vert flowery, some malt and notes of honey and spices (pepper). Really fresh nose. The flavour is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Very original and peculiar and surely well executed and hard to describe. Also flavourful for such a light beer. Light to medium body, lively carbonation, long finish with medium bitterness

Bottle @ home, from the brewery. Il profumo è delicatissimo e incredibilmente ampio. Si passa dalla pasta frolla al burro, al miele ai fiori, ogni annusata mi sembrava diversa. Il colore è un giallo carico decisamente torbido, con una morbida schiuma ampia e vaporosa, di breve durata. In bocca è acidulata & dolce, velluata, decisamente saporita di miele e stuzzica la lingua con una punta quasi piccante. I fiori si avvertono più al naso che all’assaggio. estremamente fresca ha un livello alcolico bassissimo, come tenue e la luppolatura.

Aroma is funky with some barnyard, leather, sweaty locker room, salt and bready caramel with mulling spices and oranges. Cloudy pinkish amber with a thin, white head and some floaties. Flavor starts with sour orange, sweet and grainy caramel and some sweat. Overall the flavor is a bit thin compared to the aroma. Very light body, almost watery texture and nice carbonation. Thanks to JPDIPSO for sharing.

Pours a hazy golden color. Slightly sour nose with hints of a funky earthy aroma. The flavor is slightly off and gives a biscuity meets funky earthy flavor, with a hint of malty sweetness. An ok beer, but I wouldn;t buy it.

UPDATED: JUL 29, 2009 Hazy orange head with Tartness, a lot of carbonated spice. Dry, watery finish with a healthy amount of funk on the caboose . Sleepy brought this back from Birrificio in Italy.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Really gorgeous light peachy-gold color with a whisper of pink and a huge, loose pouffy white head. Bright, slightly tart aroma with alluring faint suggestion of roses and red fruits over a soft bit of spice. The aroma is nice, but you really have to go after it. It would easily be overlooked if this beer-for-quaffing was merely quaffed. The flavor suggests elderberries in the background of a nearly zero malt profile and not alcohol characteristics which leaves you wanting more from the thin, light, watery, body. Something to enhance or magnify the unique qualities of this beer would be nice. In short, this is a cool beer that would be perfect in a Spring garden party, but not necessarily in a pub somewhere. Fun to try.

Sampled at the Carolina Crew tasting last month. Light yellow pour. Lightly sour and tart aroma. Tart and floral taste. Lots of flavor for such a low ABV.
