3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Label shows this as 4.7% ABV. Pours a cloudy amber with a tall, dense, foamy tan head. Smells like antique furniture, herbs and old books with a touch of grains in the background. Taste is grainy and slightly herbal with dusty yeast, dried fruit, light spice and sweet malt. Body is light with a strong, bubbly carbonation. Body is essentially like a wit bier. Ends with more grains, soft fruit notes, cereal, sweet malt, light herbal notes, and dusty yeast.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy orange with a large white head. Aromas of phenol, spice and a hint of lemon. Slightly sweet, fruity and yeasty. A hint of hops towards the end. A very mellow and fruity finish.

Spina da Etaly. Birra dai profumi speziati molto originali, di agrumi, e spezie orientali, quasi balsamici direi. In bocca è forse fin troppo corposa e di tendenza dolce. Peccato per l’aspetto con torbidità esagerata, nonostante fosse alla spina. Ha ampi margini di miglioramento.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500 ml bottle. Pours golden in color with an amber hue. Topped with a pure white head. The aroma is spicy with a real graininess to it. There are some mild fruit notes to the flavor with a solid cereal grains background and some earthy spice up front. Really interesting beer. The only real off putting thing about this beer is the price $13 per bottle might stop me from doing this one again.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at NYC Ginger Man. Poured a slightly hazy gold with a white head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma was light fruit, sweet grain with a bit of spice and yeast backing for complexity. Flavor started with sweet bread and grains with a growing light fruit note and a hint of spices and vanilla.

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Another winner in an evening of good brews. Big, fizzing head. Aroma has lime and flowers, but a yeasty-soapy undertone also. Light green-khaki color. The flavor has sweet fruity notes, melon, and a bit of Italian soda flavor and chewing gum. Interesting grains in the finish, and I could taste a bit of amaranth (it also has quinoa, rice, and tapioca!). Plenty of foam and nice carbonation. A very good and adventurous brew, but overpriced.

Draft. Pours golden orange with a white head. Light spicy yeasty aroma, with grainy notes and a hint of anise. The flavor has some dirty fraininess, spicy yeast, a hint of fruit, and a hint of anise. Not bad.

Bottle shared by haggerty. Pours cloudy blonde with a decent white head and a fruity aroma. There is an effervescent fruit flavor with a distinct rice finish. The flavor is rather strange, but it is refreshing and easy to drink.
