eduardovl (1021) - SWITZERLAND - APR 9, 2015
330ml bottle served in a pint glass. A: Pours a dark amber color forming a medium light yellow head with low retention. Only few lacings left in the glass and lots of brown yeast particles floating and in the bottom of the glass. S: Very fruity and hoppy nose. Strong notes of grape, apples and pears. Flowery and grassy hops. Candy sugar and caramel notes. A bit earthy end. T: Slightly sweet upfront becoming quickly quite dry and bitter. Notes of caramel, crystal malts and fruits. Nice fruity phenols: grapefruit and grapes, mainly. Hops have a grassy and bit citrus profile which gives it also some notes of tropical fruits. Persistent bitterness. M: Medium body and carbonation. Bittersweet aftertaste. Caramel and citrus. O: Good drinkability. Nice ale. The positive point about L’Olmaia is the fact that their beers have a strong hoppy character.

sandrobruni (18) - ITALY - FEB 13, 2015
bel colore, forse un pò torbida, schiuma poco persistente. Note di luppolo, in bocca attacco dolciastri e poi esplosione di luppoli da aroma. Interessante finale secco ma non tagliente. molto gradevole 750 ml bottiglia

luttonm (2906) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 11, 2014
.33l bottle at Pivopija, Belgrade (or Zemun if you want to be specific). Richer, clear amber-brown, foamy tan head. Very sweet fruity aroma. Sweet italian malt leading to sweet and crisp hops and a very bitter finish. Some yeasty character. Nothing screams belgian to me but this is very tasty.

DrSilverworm (7960) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 5, 2014
11.2oz bottle. No bottle date found on the bottle, but this is at least a couple years old, I’m pretty sure. Maybe I opened it a little aggressively, but the bottle foamed over when I opened it up. Pours a dark amber orange color. Lots of hazy swirls and dark particles in the body. Big foamy off-white head that just persists... Big grapefruit zesty hop in the aroma, sort of surprising and kind of a good smell... Taste is a little cloying sweet unfortunately up front, but I get used to it in subsequent sips.. Mild bitter. Soft carbonation and very dry texture. Gets smoother after it’s sat for a bit, though. Medium body. Lightly spicy aroma. Ok belgian ale overall, not bad. Nice toasty malt profile, some toffee, and good sort of grapefruity notes are appreciated. Better than expected overall, it got substantially better as I went. The price is a bit high though

I think I got to an unlucky bottle. Full of yeast, rough and dirty, gentle hops but mostly dominated by yeast.

Very nice, quite sweet and italian alike. Very drinkable and strong hoppy aroma there too.

heavy (2265) - Split, CROATIA - MAY 31, 2013
17/04 A 0.75 l bottle, courtesy of ogivlado, thanks for sharing! It poured hazy orange body with medium sized ivory head. Very nice elderflower and honey malt aroma with lot of citrus hops. Somewhat spicy as well. Peppery, fine hoppy flavor, bitter but well balanced with vanilla malts and chalky yeast, to be smooth on palate. Quite full in body for relatively modest ABV. Finish was long, pleasant sweetish and slightly bitter. Really a pleasant Belgian ale.

ogivlado (6167) - Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 29, 2013
Bottled 750ml. -from La Rinascente, Milano. Murky amber coloured, medium to big sized pale beige head, fresh hoppy nose. Moderate malty, flowery hoppy and mild citrusy with notes of elder in the finish. Pleasant, aromatic and enjoyable brew, and one of the best Italian beersthat I’ve tried in past few years.
