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

Restrained funky aroma in an amber copper pour. Funky dry flavour is not well integrated or balanced.

0.33l bottle. Dark amber color with rocky head. Aroma is malty, caramel, fruits, raisins, citrus and pine. Taste is sweet with bitter notes. Medium to full body. Overall it’s great and interesting beer; hoppy aroma suits quite well.

eduardovl (1148) - 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.

bel colore, forse un pň 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 (3415) - 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.
