Tap at Gingerman. Pours yellowy. Tastes of banana, herbal, floral, vanilla, peppery, dough, lemon, and quail egg. Yea I said quail egg mo fo. It’s kinda watery and sweet and not much finish

corby112 (2214) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 5, 2012
Draft at Alla Spina in Philadelphia, PA. Pours a dark golden orange color with a one finger frothy white head that quickly settles into a thin ring.  Minimal spots of lace left behind. Slightly floral, earthy aroma with farmhouse funk, subtle hops, citrus fruit and faint peppery spice. Lots of citrus and light fruit with some bready yeast.  As it warms the flowers really stand out. Medium bodied with delicate carbonation and a very nice balance of sweet, earthy and spicy notes.  Lots of estery light fruit notes and citrus along with a subtle, earthy farmhouse quality.  Really sweet but the ABV is well hidden. Subtle hops with lots of fruit sweetness.  Floral notes really stand out but not in a hoppy way. Hibiscus prominent but not in the way of the other notes.  Well balanced and pretty easy to drink.

Non credo di averla capita molto bene; mi sono abituato al leggero lattico del sapore solo verso metŕ bicchiere. Leggo un tale che ci ha pescato il rabarbaro, puň darsi or che ci ragiono; in ogni caso, stramba e non riproverň.

nate2g (1548) - Boomtown! / Waikato, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 2, 2010
Draught at Open Baladin, Roma. Appears a rose colour with small white head. Aroma and flavour of jelly fruit, wheat and sugar. Low carbonation. Sweet yet short finish. Unremarkable.

Mortlach (1037) - Rome, ITALY - APR 26, 2013
08/03/2012 Open Baladin (tap). Ambrata scarica, limpida, schiuma leggera e poco persistente. Naso molto confuso, cartone bagnato, malto, leggere spezie. In bocca č confusionaria, nota di malto leggera, spezie appena accennato, e finale acidulo, strano. Corpo leggero, carbonazione soft. Molto confusionaria e deludente.

Buongiorgio00 (917) - - JAN 31, 2014
Una piccola perla gradevole ma difficilmente giudicabile. Decisamente leggera e con un gusto particolare, sul quale influiscono intense note floreali, citriche, di lieviti e una generale speziatura che si espande su un sottofondo prevalentemente dolce. Interessante esperimento per il palato.

In assoluto tra le migliori birre mai devuto, si presenta molto fruttata e speziatissima di facile beva. Con questa birra Moreno ha creato un piccolo capolavoro.
