4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
An Italian craft beer, coming in a pretty cool looking 75 cl bottle, with an over-sized cap. The label oozes class. Vudu spelt out in dramatic colouring and surrounded in stylish iconography. With a price rang between 11 to 13 € this beer better be good!!
On pour, light brown colour, with a large tan head
Decent head, that maintains, very good lacing, looks good
Very strong smell, very strong but very appealing, can smell lots of flavours, lots of fruits from banana (and lemon), very sweet. Wheaty, toasty malts, very very earthy.
Great on the nose. A very rustic earthy smell with lots of fruits. very appealing…..
First reaction from the taste is that this is a strong beer, very strong, can definitely feel the 6%. Has body and can get the taste all in the back end, the wheat and hops noted. Earthy.
I liked this beer, not very sweet, but bitter, but not overbearing. Dark chocolate/caramel tastes, like a stout, but not quite. Roasted malts and fruit (Banana mostly), creamy undertones
Is a slow burner, definitely one to drink while relaxing in front of the box, or over a meal. In fact it was so full of delicious tastes and very filling that it was like a proper meal!
Loved it. Strongly recommended! Has character, style and taste, is rich in body, and one of the better beers I have had in a long time. Will definitely buy again, no matter the price tag of 11€!..

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Probada en Ruzanuvol (Valencia) de tirador. Cerveza de color castaña con una espuma muy cremosa, persistente y de color beige que se va quedando pegada al vaso. Olor muy evidente a plátano. Sabores tostados, a frutas maduras y de nuevo a plátano... quizás demasiado persistente al principio, pero en general una cerveza muy agradable que se acaba sin darte cuenta.
