Splendid citrusy wheat ale, an "enhanced" version of the classic Seta with bergamotto. One of the most refreshing Italian "blanche" beers.

sebletitje (6776) - Enghien, BELGIUM - SEP 21, 2014
Draft @ ML Fontainas, Italian Fest Sept ’14. Dorée paille, col épais blanc. Arôme est fruité sur de belles effluves d’agrumes. Note en rétro-nasal un léger fleuri-fruité typique de bergamote qui laisse se dissipé un bouquet suave tirant sur Earl Grey. Palais est agréable alliant mixe de blanche belge avec cette touche italienne. Fruité agrumes sur un côté écorce. Fini un peu sec, finement amer.

77ships (4135) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 21, 2014
Thanks! Sampled draft @ Italian Beer Week-end / Zwanze 2014 CML. Odd citrus, light greenish golden, little creamy white head. Wheat lactic nose is strong, fizzy, soda, citrus. Taste is a bit odd, spices, coriander, lacto wheat, lemon, soda, sprizity. Fizzy body. Not my favourite but not bad for what it is.

JorisPPattyn (7971) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 20, 2014
Draught Very good, ultrafine & dense snowwhite head over fully hazy pale yellow-lime beer; textbook lace. Orange & citrus - little or no coriander. Spicy, even tad peppery. Can’t find the bergamotte, however. Citrus, fine & aromatic flavoured, faintly spicy-yeasty. Some wheat, not overobvious. Pretty clean palate - rare for a witbier. Light body, but obvious (this time) wheatslickness. Very good in its style.

MartinT (7952) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 18, 2014
My Bottom Line:
This creative wheat beer promotes lactic tartness, citrusy fruitiness and doughy wheat in a frothy mouthfeel.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy head of foam sits atop the cloudy pale yellow.
-This is a bit like a Berliner Weisse, with a Weizen’s body and strength, spiced with bergamot.
-This is very refreshing!
-Mouthfeel is pleasantly dry.
-Mild vanilla can be imagined too.

On tap at Ma Che Siete, Roma.

Davvero niente male, una blanche un pò diversa, molto bevibile godibile e in questo periodo dell’anno, anche molto dissetante.

Ragnampiza (492) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - MAY 29, 2014
330 ml bottle from Birra +, served in a shaker glass. Very pale yellow, quite hazy, not much of a head to speak of, just a thick ring of foam. Intense and perfumy nose, its pretty much all around bergamot notes, lemon, lime, citric and slighly citrusy as well. Light flowers and lavander smell too. Slighly dusty in the mouth, obviously citric and lemony here as well, but not too overpowering. Moderately sweet. Average to lively carbonation, light body and creamy texture. Refreshing, thirst quenching and light. A proper summer beer if you don’t mind these types of fruits.

Mortlach (970) - Rome, ITALY - APR 25, 2014
23/04/2014 Mad For Beer (tap). Dorata paglierino, leggermente torbida, schiuma media discretamente persistente. Naso invadente e monocorde, bergamotto sparatissimo a coprire ogni cosa, nota citrica leggera. In bocca va appena meglio, ma anche qui la presenza del bergamotto è eccessiva e alla lunga stanca. Corpo leggero, carbonazione media. Sgraziata.

Oakes (12723) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 22, 2014
This was labeled as special, though I’m not sure of bergamot. Cloudy pale yellow, loose but big head. Lots of coriander on the nose. Similar taste, a fair bit of maltiness up front and tartness at the back.
