3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A tall white tower full of irregular bubbles lays above the cloudy gold. Strongly estery nose immediately heads toward pear candy and banana bread territory, adding a sugary impression to this ale that is not very sweet at all in fact. Surprisingly bubblegummy and spicy, it feels more like a hefeweizen yeast than a saison strain, yet the large bubbles, rather high attenuation and airy palate would belong to a farmhouse ale. There is plenty of alcohol though and the cerealic malts show little character, the bubbles lifting the malts into an absent-minded state. In mouth, while the high-temperature yeast still deploys its flavours, flowery and citrusy hops grow quite a punch. The high carbonation seems to mitigate the bitterness intensity, but does not hinder the aromas which could feel fresher, but are efficiently fruity and engaging. It is a pleasant recipe, but the alcohol character seems a bit exagerated for my liking and I’d also appreciate a subtler yeast strain, because the bubblegum/perfume/candy-like notes feel out of place with the explosive hops.

Ever had a beer that tastes like strongbow or apple cider? This is it and it sucks because I hate apple cider.

Blond, plakkerige kraag. Ruikt naar mout, tropisch fruit, smaakt bitterfruitig, vaag kruidnagel, bittere afdronk en nasmaak. Ruikt beter dan ie smaakt wat mij betreft.

Buona ma non buonissima,carica e pastosa si presenta bene a inizio sorso per poi trascinare un sentore discreto di ipa in un turbine di gusti più da saison e blanche che finiscono per non equlibrarsi
