Questa è forse la mia birra preferita tra quelle di Schigi. Notevole la luppolatura, ma il lievito belga si sente eccome! E’ un bel bere

Unfortunately, mine was the bottom of the bottle...
So I have to trust in the others

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
My Bottom Line:
Banana esters, hay-like cereals, bready yeast and herbal hops coalesce in this beautifully expressive and supple Saison.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A dollop of foam decorates the misty golden.
-Mild tartness accompanies the noble hop finish.
-Citrusy fruitiness splashes the second half of each sip.
-All flavours are intertwining perfectly.
-The tap version was as good, if not better, than the bottled version.
Bottle and on tap at Brasserie 4:20.

multiple 33 cl bottles. After having one, I went and bought a bunch more. One of my favorite bottles saisons in Italy. Pours a light hazed blonde with a nice fluffy lasting white head and great lace. Aroma is of the dupont yeast- light spicy phenolics, hints of fruits, dry earthy tones, grass, modest toast and bready malt backbone, and light floral hops. Flavor is biscuit, dough, bread, grass, phenolic spices, more grass, light pepper, sea foam mineral and airy middle with med to high carbonation yet not prickly- light grassy soft bitterness in the end and very dry for a 7% saison. Very nice!

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Huge white head over a cloudy orangebrown body. Banana, orange, yeast, fresh herbs. Not as spicy as expected. Interesting acidity dominates the taste, but it is balanced by some fruity hops. It does smell a little old or woody. Alcohol does wonders in this beer. Full mouthfeel. (33cl bottle bought at Bir&Fud)

Bottle. A hazy medium blonde beer, with a huge, frothy, lacing, almost fully lasting white head. The aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted bread, cookies), lightly to moderately hoppy (flowers, grass), lightly to moderately yeasty (dough), with notes of pepper, banana and some other fruits. The flavor is moderately sweet, lightly sour, lightly bitter. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation, dry long fiish with medium bitterness, very lightly alcoholic. Great yeasty saison, complex and balanced. Dupont oriented, but with a great character and lightly wheaty. Spicy, lightly hot. Want more.
