Hazy golden, huge airy white froth. Wheat and light hop aroma. Sweetish, slightly grainy malt flavour wirth a light citric, sourish note, could be the high carb. Clean and fresh but not particularly exciting.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Golden ale from one of those new Italian micro breweries. Very thick, frothy and rocky, egg-white head, crackling loudly and sticking firmly to the edge of the glass; colour is a hazy warm ’old gold’ with fierce sparkling supporting the impressive head, more of a cloudy ochre with deposit but still with a ’champenoise’ bubble effect; the head diminishes after a while but stays stable. Aroma of green apple, sourdough, unmistakable wheat, freshly cut grass and weeds, raw rhubarb, lime, unripe gooseberries, dried grapefruit peel, perhaps some iron, unsweetened yoghurt, peach, some banana, watermelon, an earthy smell of cooked turnip, soap, honey, hint of stale sweat but nothing truly disturbing. Vividly fruity onset (green plums, apple, sour berries, dried citrus peel), subduedly sweetish but crisp and sourish with an expectedly strong carbo, minerally and tingling vividly on the tongue; slightly oily, smooth mouthfeel, spicy yeasty notes, fairly ’neutral’ and grainy pale malt sweetishness paired with a ’deep’ and soft wheat malt sourishness (reminding me just a little bit of a Hefeweizen, but far less outspoken), persisting quite strongly and building a bridge to the finish, where the same sourishness lingers along with a grassy, leafy hop bitterishness, drying a bit and of medium duration, though the sharp carbonation also supports the drying effect in the throat; some pale malt sweetishness creeps through as well, but it’s a sourish and somewhat spicy yeast flavour which remains for the longest along with a slightly medicinal aspect and a late entry of earthy hop bitterness, which admittedly lasts longer than expected, with a somewhat resinous feel to it. Not too many off-flavours here, but clearly too tart and too yeasty in order to be called a true ’golden ale’: in this style, a beer should be cleaner and smoother. This is not a real golden ale in the Anglo-Saxon sense of the word, this is another Belgian blonde, but not the worst one at that, though a bit strong on the ’sourdough-yeast’ side and a bit overcarbonated.
