COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
La birra della sete. Solo malto chiaro, luppoli con profumi agrumati e rinfrescanti, lieviti dalle speziature balsamiche. Amara... con un equilibrio gustativo dissetante e coraggioso.

La prima cosa che si nota è la schiuma: prorompente, candida e di una pannosità quasi solida. Giallo paglierino con netti riflessi verdi brillante. Olfatto dominato da un fruttato agrumato che ricorda il pompelmo e il bergamotto. Al palato è molto leggera di corpo, con lievi iniziali note maltate che lasciano il campo ad un finale rinfrescante con un taglio amaro di discreta persistenza. E’ una birra da aperitivo, ideale complemento di piatti delicati a base di verdure o carni bianche. Da provare con frutti di mare e pesce anche crudo. From the brewer: in our production both Blond and Zest are dry hopped.

jinroh (1102) - ESTONIA - MAY 24, 2016
Pours whitish golden, bit of foam and slightly hazy. Nose is packed with Belgian yeast character and spices, bit of ginger even. Taste is surprisingly hoppy, lots of hops in this one. Combined with fruitiness and spices from yeast, some lemon peel bitterness, this beer becomes truly refreshing and there seems to be much more body than its 4,4% would suggest. Flavuorful session beer, top notch!

IlGagario (114) - Modena, ITALY - FEB 7, 2016
On tap. Colore giallo paglierino/oro. Testa cremosa e persistente. Olfatto di fieno fresco e caldo, erbe amare senza spezie, bergamotto, lievito. Carbonazione da soffice a media. Bocca di amarezza netta e vivace, un pelo sotto l’invadenza. Aroma di fieno e granaglie che si balsamizza fino alla dolcezza, senza spezie. Luppolatura ben controllata, in sottotema sensazione di lievito di impostazione belga, finale pulito e secco, fra dolce e amaro. Equilibrata, ottima.
