3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled on 2/3/07, thanks to boboski: Pours a transparent dark golden bronze with a fizzy, white, wispy-lacing head. Has a dry, earthy, bright floral aroma with a hint of sweetness and tartness. Body starts with an airy palate with some mild sweet and sour flavors with a touch of black pepper toward a thinner, drier floral finish. An interesting brew.

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

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thanks John for bringing the bottle: Hazy deep amber hue with a small frothy head and okay lacing. The aroma has notes of sour apple, brett-like funk, herbs and flowers, pepper, rye and dusty yeast esters. The taste is moderately sour and woody at first followed by a nice level of bitterness. The finish has a herbal and earthy quality. The mouth feel is dry and smooth and quite enjoyable. I liked it, a nice surprise for sure.

1 litre swing top bottle. Pours orange with a white head. Smells perfumy with citrus and lots of fruit. Taste is lemony with lots of nice fruity elements and sour undertones.

Keg at Mother Kelly’s, London. It pours a lightly hazy straw color with a medium white head. Aroma is grassy, grainy, spicy with fruit notes of wild berries and apricots, hay and yeast. Taste is medium sweet with notes of banana, bread, honey, ripe peaches, herbs. Light bodied with lively carbonation. Overall, tasty and refreshing.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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 ingredients’s list, but very easy to drink and surely well integrated. I’ll try again from the bottle and will adjust my opinion accordingly, because this is the kind of beer that you rarely face.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
In short: A perfumy rose-water based beer. Girly and sickeningly aromatic
How: Bottle 750ml. Consumed some 6 months after the beer release. Sample at Cathschlag birthday party tasting
The look: Cloudy blonde body with big ugly chunks of yeast topped by a short-lived white head
In long: The floral aspect of this one goes has flower petals and the likes but goes way beyond that, this is downright rose water, perfume and other romantic girly aromatic notes. Some fruity notes (mainly grapefruits) feel like and added flavour to a rose water drink rather than the other way around. Body is watery. Light sensation of cleaning product. Not even refreshing, just annoying. What the fuck were my drinking partners drinking giving positive review to that gross girly perfumy beer, I haven’t anything so gay since Dancing With The Stars: Special Hairdressers.
