3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750 ml bottle from Premier Wine and Spirits (Halifax). Pours a cloudy amber colour with decent-sized, lasting off-white head and lots of floaties. Aroma is caramel, spice and some fruitiness. Flavour is sweet caramel, pear and other fruit, and spice. Slightly above medium body. Something a little different - adds up to something good but not great.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
16.9oz bottle. Unfiltered amber-brown. Thin, steady off white head. Not really so far off from a good French Biere de Garde, a little chalky in it’s mouthfeel though. Mellow chestnut amber brown malt tones. Quite easy drinking for the ABV. Mild candied orange, pineapple fruit tones in the finish. Really grew on me..tasty delicate brown chocolate tones come out.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma is v. light. Easy fruit notes, but nothing punctuating. Red-amber color with lots of suspended sediment. Sweet, caramel notes in the body--this is the strongest aspect of this beer. Relatively smooth body and only a trace of bitterness on the way out. Okay--but not very interesting.

Halfbottle bought in shop San Gimignano
nice deep amber red colour. But dissapointing. sweatly fruit taste, smell of sweat wort, like many Italian ambratas. OK but only beacuse I have tasted so many horrible samples last forthnight in Italy.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The aroma is sweet and yeasty with caramel malt, alcohol, and grassy hops. The appearance is hazy amber with a medium head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is smooth. Overall another winner from Collesi.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle. Heavy in the glass which shows the beer has some body to it. Murky hazy deep brown in colour with an oil slick of foam. There is fruit present in the aroma with a hint of something sweet. Lively n the mouth with a bit of zing but not too much.
