3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at GBBF ’09. Many thanks to harrisoni for a chance to enjoy this fascinating beer. Gold. Odd hoppy aroma of grapefruit and ginger which seems typical of Italian craft brewing. And that goes for the taste: an unusual, complex, indeterminate melange that is more interesting than appealing.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle @ Kiss The Kitchen Floor or better known as ZZT VI (2013): kindly shared by IluvatarMilan:
White creamy sticky head, changes pretty quick into a lacing on top of a hazy orange colored beer.
Aromas of hops, grapefruit, soap, some citrus... Lot of floral hop tones.
Flavours of hops, grapefruit, citrus, floral and tea herbs. Again nice floral hop tones with a medium bitterness.
Aftertaste is floral with hop notes and tea herbs.
Low to medium carbo, soft creamy mouthfeel, medium bodied and a creamy texture. Nice beer, well balanced and some fine hop tones.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Bronze with a medium head that took some time to dissipate. Slightly hoppy with a bitter finnish.Pleasant but not outstanding although
this is one of the craft breweries that are making people look at Italian beer in a new light.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at the De Molen July 2nd Tuesday tasting. Poured a very lively champagne like clear medium amber with a bubbly white head. The aroma is stale malt with a little citrus and caramel. The flavour is medium bitter, big malt, nutty, alcoholic and with some toffee in the finish. It sounds great, but in all honesty, I didn’t like it that much.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Light hazy copper golden body with firm, rocky white head that’s not going anywhere. Nice! Fresh pine aroma, not overly powerful. Crusty bread, fresh hops and a soft wheat base. Quite balanced still. Dry palate, pungent bitterness that’s only mildly contrasted by the fairly high carbonation. Ending is only bitter, and very drinkable for me. Recommended drinking temperature was 4°C on the bottle and it actually isn’t too cold to still get flavours going. Even more surprising with this light body and low abv. Bit of a surprise for me from this unknown brewer. Not super complex but very quaffable. (75cl bottle, somewhat expensive)
