3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle - 750mL - corked and caged. Pours a soft amber. Small white head forms. Aroma is soft peppery spice, earthy and spicy hops, yeast and some musty and dusty notes. There’s touches of caramel and grains as well. Taste is spicy and lightly herbal with more earthy and spicy hops, some lightly floral hops and light caramel. There’s some grain and yeast as well, but it gets interesting as some Asian food-like flavors begin to appear. So much so that I think this would pair very well with Asian food. Body is light-medium, lively and has a somewhat dense carbonation. Finishes with more spicy notes, caramel, Asian food, grasses, floral notes and yeast.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Crystal clear golden color with thin white head. Aroma is Belgian spicy yeast - slightly sweet, a touch floral. Flavor is spicy - maybe some Saaz hops? Fairly dry, decent hop bitter but overall very well balanced witha big malt presence. Finish is fairly dry, but not crisp. Some notes of vanilla and honey also present.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
C&C 750, best by 09.28.09. Gold with a white head. Mildly sweet nose, toasty malt and fruit atop yeast. Lightly toasted malt flavors, seems a bit wheaty somehow, lightly spiced and a bit of banana. Odd. Didn’t much care for it, but seems well made.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Hmmmm mi aspettavo peggio quando l’ho comprata, speravo meglio quando l’ho versata: a vedersi pareva proprio carina. Sarò io che non apprezzo lo stile? Dato che neppure la decantata 3monts mi ha fatto impazzire, non è da escludere questa possibilità; aroma strano, fin troppo strano: disinfettante. Sapore metallicissimo non troppo dolce né sensibilmente amaro. Mah... la bottiglia è molto graziosa, peccato che avevano appiccicato il bollino del prezzo sull’etichetta e rimuovendolo si è strappata... ne comprerò un’altra? Può darsi; però non credo che per il contenuto valga la pena...
