COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Birra di castagne, stagionale, ambrata, prodotta a bassa fermentazione (Alc. 8.% circa). Il sapore e l'aroma di castagne sono il tratto distintivo di questa birra originale. Si accompagna ai cibi mediamente saporiti della cucina autunno-invernale.

Pours a transparent copper orange with a thin, wispy-lacing off-white head. Aroma of doughy, lightly sweet toasty Belgian malt and some earthy spices and nuttiness. Body starts semi-sweet and effervescent with some chestnut flavor and mildly earthy hops toward a drier finish. A nicely balanced and unique chestnut flavored brew.

Hugh (153) - Zillebeke, BELGIUM - MAY 11, 2007
Bottle and label design looked so imposing I left it on the mantlepiece for six months until it went past its sell-by date. 3 months overdate, and the beer was as impressive as the packaging. Bronze,dark gold colour, packed with flavours. I couldn’t place the flavour but now seeing in the description, I can pick out the word ’castagne’ which explains a lot. An impeccable wealth of balanced flavours and aromas, I can only think this is a highly skilled brewer. The highlight of my week, and it’s been quite an entertaining week. Credit to Lorenzo for this one!

(Bottle 75 cl) Slightly hazy amber golden with an almost absent, off-white head. Sweetish, lightly caramelish aroma. Fairly full body with sweetish, lightly caramelish malts. Subdued bitterness. I don’t really pick up the chestnuts, but this is drinkable stuff indeed. Courtesy of Ungstrup. 220207

Ungstrup (29367) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 24, 2007
Bottled. An amber beer with some gunk floating around under a lazing light orange head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of alcohol, medium notes of caramel, and light notes of lemon. The flavor is sweet with notes of straw, caramel, and alcohol. The alcohol leaves a warming sensation. I find it a bit too simple and raw.
