4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours slightly hazy pale gold with three fingers of rocky white head, excellent retention and lacing. (5/5) Nose is floral and herbal, dusty funk, mild citrus and stone fruit. (8/10) Taste is mild sweet, mild bitter, very mild tart. (8/10) Light body, moderate carbonation, dry crisp finish. (4/5)
I like this a lot - a very restrained BPA with elements of farmhouse saison, just enough sweetness to balance the mild floral and herbal hops, and a hint of dusty funk to make things interesting. A nice summery beer on a cold and windy winter’s day. I could drink a lot of this - too bad I’ve only got the one bottle. (But good thing it’s a big one!) (16/20)

Bottle. Nose is yeast slight herbal notes, slight floral, medicine . Taste is medicinal, straw, yeast, herbal hops. Lack of depth in the short finish.
I think my bottle is on the turn, it is not the drink other reviewers have described.

Biondissima opalescente e con una schiuma bianca di buona persistenza ma di irregolarità nelle dimensioni delle bolle, Al naso è freschissima....erba appena tagliata, agrumi, anche un sentore di margherita, ma anche crosta di pane. In bocca note maltate in ingresso lasciano ampio spazio a sentori agrumati ed erbacei. Finale piacevolmente asprino e amaricante il giusto. Anche in bocca ti fa immaginare di sorseggiarla in spiaggia sotto un ombrellone tanto è dissetante, beverina e fresca, ma non una bottiglia (da 75 è la dimensione azzeccata, minimo sindacale procapite), una spina intera (luogo modalità di somministrazione e stagione ideale, ma che anche a gennaio fa la sua porca figura).

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750 ml bottle. Pours a slightly veiled straw with obvious sediments and a thick, very resilient white head. Aroma is pear, peach and vanilla. Flavor is peach, pear, dusty, malty, peppery, minty. Finish is somewhat herbal, a tad bit of bitterness with notes of grapefruit here and there. Very refreshing and drinkable. Medium body, average to strong carbonation. Great Summer ale.

UPDATED: DEC 26, 2014 Nice seasonal beer with a beautiful nose. The first time I had it I was completely overwhelmed but I was quite disappointed on the followings tastings...The finish is a bit too bitter and I think it is because 5.2% is too soft for so much hoppyness... It’s though a good refreshing summer beer and who could resist to this wonderful and beautiful man on the label?

Faktiskt ganska slätstruket får jag tyvärr konstatera. Absolut drickbart, men inget som fastnar i minnet.
