Very strange taste.
Not balanced. Rotten orange. Again gone bad cittavecchia???

Bottled 330ml. -from Pam supermarket Trieste. Murky brown coloured, medium sized off-white head, dusty yeasty nose. Moderate malty, caramel, acidic yeasty and dried fruits with hint of spices in the finish. Really nothing special here.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Ogi & Maja’s bottle, shared with me (thanks!).
Poured a murky brown body with an off white head. Sourish dusty yeasty aroma. Ok, not promising... Sour, meaty malty taste, vague raisins, sweet-sour interplay, but bordering on offensive with notes of plastic both in aroma and taste - certainly ruined. The beer might be a hit & miss, but this reeked of yet another overpriced Italian beer ruined by crappy refermentation in the bottle and poor handling. I WILL, however, try to get it again, as, looking at the other ratings, it seems that when it’s good, it’s very good. What I just drank doesn’t deserve a digit over 2.2.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle: Sourly, light roasty, malty and light sweet aroma. Flavor is malty, alcoholic, few fruitiness, few bitterness. Few character and too much acid.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled, 0.33l. Hazy pale brown color with thick creamy tan-like head and yeast residue that don’t want to settle down easily. Aroma of caramel, dark and tropical fruits, yeast, mild roast, alcohol and candy sugar. Taste starts sweet and sour fruity, then followed by spicy malt and refreshing vinous sourness. Mouthfeel is warm, while finish is somehow metallic bitter with irony and spicy aftertaste. Full body, oily texture and soft carbonation in palate. It might have some flaws, but I found it very attractive...

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very sweet and sour beer, a bit too sweet for me.. Aroma: caramel, hay, citrus, herbs, banana, raisin, vanilla, with a long aftertaste. Nice but not convincing enough..

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: DEC 10, 2014 Color ambrato scuro, limpido e con un cappello di schiuma beige di medio spessore. Aroma fruttato, mieloso e vinoso con lievi sentori di frutta secca; gusto inizialmente amarognolo con lievi note di malto tostato che evolve verso un finale più dolce con caramello e frutta passita. Buon corpo, non eccessivamente strutturata ma piacevole, discreta persistenza.
