3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Ogi’s. "La 9" and has 6.5% alcohol. Umm... What? Poured a murky amber-brown body with a big, fluffy nice off white head that went away relatively slowly. Nice, really fresh notes of elderflower and maltiness, with very light soapy notes, aroma hops, some orange. Fresh taste again, apricot, orange rind, nicely and very much aromatic, peach juice, slightly lactic, quite lovely and enjoyable - these last 3 Italian beers were definitely a nice surprise, though I’m sure that Ogi paid quite a lot for them.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
11/04/2013 La Tana (handpump). Ambrata, miele, limpida, schiuma biancastra sporca abbondante e persistente. Al naso sentori di malto e luppolo, note erbacee. In bocca è un po’ confusa, l’attacco è dolciastro, maltato, il finale è amaro ma non così secco come mi sarei aspettato. Corpo medio, carbonazione soft. Un po’ caotica e confusionaria.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at PP Olde Towne. Pours a full haze reddish amber. Creamy beige foam. Excellent retention. Nose is spicy, nutty, earthy. Taste is heavy dust, wood, spicy forest, forage, nuts. Quite hoppy and mildly cheesy. Palate is dry, aerated, forage bitterness. Complete sheety lacing. Yum. I really liked it. Like a dry, non sticky, DIPA.

Bottle at marea in NYC. Pours hazy deep orange with decent sized fluffy head. Nose of malt and bread. Tastes bready, spicy of pepper and coriander, decent amount of citrus hops, caramel, grass, and light banana. It’s dry on finish and paired well my seafood feast.

Apple, dried leaves, and a little alcohol on the nose. Cloudy copper, no head. Dried leaves, oily rose petals, and lemon zest flavor. A bit like potpourri.
