Draft sample @ Fiera della Birra, Cesena ’14. Deuxième bière de cette brasserie et deuxième surprise. Sans vraiment m’ébahir devant le style, j’admets que ici, bière au miel ne lésine pas sur le miel. Dorée, col blanc. Arôme est intense au niveau du miel, tout simplement super, très fleuri et aux effluves botaniques. Palais est prononcé de miel donnant un profil unique et qui offre une belle dimension à la bière. Un score peut-être trop élevé mais cette bière à le mérite de changer un peu des nombreuses IPA et autres allemandes qui pullulent en Italie sans vraiment apporter qcq chose de nouveau.

Hazy dark amber color. Roasted malt, smoked and some honey aroma. At taste is so sweet and smooth.

Bottled 330ml (Eataly Genova, BB 04/20139
Hazy orange color, small white head. Cardboard, bready, sour, sweetish aroma. Light to medium-bodied, lots of carbonation. Sour, fruity and bready notes in the finish. Probably infected.

Bottle in Genoa, purchased from an Enoteca on the seafront parade. Hazy amber beer, bubbly off white head. Light dry palate, crisp. Bretty farmyard stuff going on alongside creamy citrus. Semi dry finish. Pleasant enough but once again with this brewery I am unsure if this is meant to be sourish.

"Regina" means queen, but this is obviously the queen bee. Nothing subtle, but a rapid look at the label finds honey as an ingredient. Mixed flower honey: in fact we are near Genoa and the people there are famous for being parsimonious. "La Superba", as many know, is the new brewing asset lead by Andrea Mura, ex-head brewer of the glorious (open since 1999) Fabbrica Birra Busalla. The recipe is near the same of the honey speciality beer brewed by the Fabbrica (a seasonal brew, usually for Christmas). Label is the same as the other "Superba" bottles, this time with dark orange foam. This bottom fermented beer pours hazy light amber with small and fastly disappearing white head; aroma is sweet of malt and honey, flavor is a little more balanced, I believe aging some months (bought it in september) has done it well, because the first tasting had been pretty bad. Overall, the "Caea" (pils) is the basis of all these experiments and that profile is present even in this sweetish product. Not very classy, as all the "Superba" brews, but still drinkable and fresh, if unbalanced sweetness does not scare you.

Dolcezza strabordante, stucchevole a manetta, mi dispiace ma questa è davvero da migliorare.

Assaggiata direttamente in birrificio; sulla base della Caea, il sapore del miele è molto delicato e non spinto
