COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Schiuma compatta, frastagliata, candida e persistente. Dorata con "vibrazioni" verdi. Naso intenso, prorompente, quasi aggressivo, con un netto fruttato maturo di pesca noce bianca, uva spina e litchi quasi a coprire una delicata speziatura. in bocca l’attacco è dissetante grazie al corpo leggero e all’assenza di zuccheri residui. Finale secco, tagliente e prolungato.

Dorata, opalescente, schiuma bianca pannosa e persistente. aromi agrumati e resinosi (scorza d’arancia, pompelmo rosa, cedro...) Secca, poco corpo, piuttosto amara.....fresca e beverina, ma non nelle mie corde.....

EdKing (1851) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2014
Bottle at the Italian Bar, GBBF 2014. Light golden rusty orange, medium white head. Nose is lots of lemon peel, zesty lemon, some bitter grapefruit, lots of hop, and a bit of yeast ester or saison yeast aroma. Cereal grain malt character. Taste is sharp bitter lemon rind, sweetness, hop bitter, some pine, some of that saison yeast character, and then on the finish it’s got some nettle and pine. Decent body to it, full flavoured.

A citrus accented IPA. A bit greener and leafier than modern American versions with a certain endearing quality, without ever sinking it’s hooks in.

MartinT (7797) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 18, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Passionfruit and lemon whirl around bread crumbs until herbal resins take control of the finish.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam laces around the hazy shiny blond.
-It doesn’t feel as airy, dry and carbonated as their Blond, but it’s still very drinkable and refreshing.
-There is a lot of yeast in their bottles. Be careful when pouring.
-This gets more and more endearing with every sip.
-Green peppercorns appear in the finish.

Bottle.

Bouteille. La cervoise91. Robe dorée coiffée d’une mousse blanche dense. Nez citronné et malté. Bouche fraiche, maltée et fruitée sur le pamplemousse avec une belle note florale de houblon. Finale zestée et amère avec une pointe d’épices. Une bière rafraichissante très agréable. "She’s fresh so fresh, exciting"...

Bottle. Big grapefruit aroma, lots of citrus, taste is less fruity. Light skunkiness. Quite refreshing, feels more ipa like than belg.

Very cloudy, almost white, blonde color. Big hoppy dry nose with lemon zest, big skunkiness, with a bit of torrified wheat notes. Very dry hoppy mouth, not tons of complexity. Good yeasty character. Dry. Bitter finish. Light body. Decent.

brianza_ale (88) - ITALY - MAY 30, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 2, 2014 Pours a quite small, but with a thin stable layer, frothy white head; colour it’s light golden orange, just a bit hazy. Strong and wrapping aroma: big citrus and fruits, lemons, oranges, pineapple, grass, tropical fruits, some spices. Taste it’s intially a bit sweet and very fruity, but immediately turns to the more citrusy side and leaves place to the sour and delicate bitter notes. Palate is clean with a nice delicate bitter and a soft carbonation; the finish just screams for the next sip. What I like most about it it’s the fact that you can enjoy those citrus and fruit flavours without drinking an extremly bitter and heavily hopped beer, as the majority are today. Any other invading flavours; greatly balanced between sour and bitter. Very exotic, incredible aroma; enjoyable cause it’s simple. Refreshing and drinkable, you’ll want another glass.

Bottle shared @ home with SuBarbare. Color: hazy blond beer with small carbonation and medium white foam. Smell: citrus notes as orange and lemon with some pineapple. Taste: high fruity taste with good balance of malt. Really drinkable. Aftertaste: nice sweet dry bitterness.
