shigadeyo (3287) - Harrison, Ohio, USA - JUL 28, 2009

Late June/Early July 2008: Strada S. Felice has a stong, fragrant chesnut aroma that also has a sour, fruity alt edge to it. The beer is the color of honey as is the foamy head that slowly dissipates. There is some sediment in the beer as well. It tastes toasty and nutty. There is also tart fruitiness in the flavor. This beer is stong and malty with a balanced bitterness and a slightly dry finish. It has a medium body and is smooth despite the high amount of carbonation. This beer isn’t too bad; I like the uniqueness of the chesnuts.

1 pint 9.4 fl. oz. flip-top bottle (8% Alc/Vol) shared by Tmoney99. Thanks Tom! Rating #55 for this beer.

PilsnerPeter (3029) - Flushing, New York, USA - AUG 1, 2008
Bottle generously shared at Ginger Man: Amber pour with a creamy off white dense head. Elegant aroma. Tart notes, mildly vinous with oak, mild leather and sweet fruit notes. Creamy body. The flavor has a great blend of sweet and tart. Smooth mild oak presence with some honey and plum notes. Seems to have a brett character, but I think it’s just the oak presence. Balanced and damn tasty.

tmoreau (2926) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - FEB 13, 2009
Stemware sampler at local beer seminar. Poured a cloudy, deep orange/amber color, with an off white, small-ring head, and minimal lacing. The aroma was nuts and hard wood. The flavor strayed from the aroma to expose some earthy, barnyard and hay notes. Unusual, to say the least, but somewhat in keepng with the SHV style.

troyc (2870) - Illinois, USA - DEC 8, 2010
[Tap] Pours a light brown color without any head. Aroma of hazelnut, vanilla and cocoa. Caramel malts backbone in the taste. Nutty notes, along with brown sugar, molasses, cherry, plums and soft hoppy finish. Rich palate and fine carbonation. Exceptionally balanced, with a creamy mouthfeel. This beer is a nice change of pace.

UPDATED: NOV 28, 2008 A very nice surprise of a beer. Shared by a friend with others at the Gingerman. A sour nose with butter-y sweet oak sugar. Definitely comes of as a high gravity sour. Taste has some more calming factors. I get a lot of what I can attach to maybe chestnuts. Its earthy and lightly sour as well. A bit ashy but not roasty. Some nice and original aspects.

Pretty pour with a strong frothy head on a purplish, orange-ish, dark copper body. Aroma is sour fruit and esters. Comes of as wild strawberries. Taste is similar with a but of a earthy, black tea bite. A bit of a bitterness at the end of the flavor to round it off. Ample carbonation is felt on the tongue, which helps to offset the slightly alcoholic heft to the brew. These Italians know how to make a damn original beer.

Pours hazy deep copper with low off-white head. Aroma of toffee, bread, light citrus and orange peel. Taste is sweet, peppery and spicy. Body is medium rich and smooth with soft carbonation.
