UPDATED: SEP 22, 2007 Yellow body with white head. Nose had trace floral, spice and sweet. Taste was spices, complex and hard for me to nail down. Tasted like flowers? Weird, in a good way.

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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Looks like orange pop with hints of brown a small sparkly cap floats on top reducing to only a meager skiff in a matter of a few short moments. Aroma is mild and cool (cool as in the way the air smells on a cold winters day) berries, floral aromas and the unmistakable smell of chewy candy all round out this aroma. Plop, plop is the sound of Gully refilling my glass as muddy sediment now clouds the beer. Taste is crisp and sharp with a mild sourness. Tangerine, honey, mild bready malts, some pepper, and a flower shop, this a strange combo that makes the flavour very refreshing. It has a watered down taste like juice made from concentrate that had too much water added to it. this would be a great beer in the heat of summer and not the dead of winter in beercronics basement. Thanks Gully

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.

3.8 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

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
