nimbleprop (5799) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUL 3, 2015
12oz pour at IL Santo Bevitore pours a murky orange with some thick, lacing white head. Nose has buttered biscuit, orange jam, some yeast, some soap. Flavor is a little better, orange pith, soap, yeast, a bit of lemon tea, tannic. Dry finish with some soapiness. Tried for a pub ale and missed.

Diabobale (276) - Vallata, SUD ITALIA, ITALY - JAN 5, 2015
Bevuta in bottiglia da 33cl. Di colore aranciato carico con lievi riflessi ramati e con schiuma finissima e assai persistente di colore avorio. Al naso sprigiona piacevoli note fruttate nonostante lo stile (ananas e pesca sciroppata in particolar modo). Al palato si presenta con un corpo leggero, molto brioso, ma risulta allappante. Al gusto lievi note dolci dei malti, subito sopraffatte dalla gran luppolatura che lascia spazio a note erbacee molto forti. Sorso secco, persistenza medio lunga.

ogivlado (6301) - Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 2, 2014
Bottled 750ml. -from Rockmark Zagreb. Murky orange coloured, huge white to off-white head, not so pleasant strong yeasty fruity nose. Sweetish malty, light fruity and discreet hoppy with hint of spices in rather bitter finish. Pretty messy brew and a way too expensive (almost 10€ for the bottle at the book shop).

makenzi (39) - SLOVENIA - JUL 5, 2014
Draught@ beer festival in Rome. Plastis glass! Amber body with frothy white head. Pleasent aroma, light malt, herbal and fruity. Flavor is not much present, maybe some light cereal, watery and a bit empty. Long herbal hop finish. Not quite impresed.

Marko (4263) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 1, 2014
0.75l, around 9€ at the Rockmark, Croatia’s first "music library", in Zagreb. Mmmkaaay. Shared with Ogi & Maja of course. Opened with a huge bang & gushed a little (yeah, apparently an Olmaia thing). Daaark amber body, murky, with a huuuge lasting off white head that stayed there forever. Creamy, sweetish malty aroma, apricot/peach & dust, tiny bready note... humm.... Somewhat empty taste driven by a herbal hopiness, ends "stupidly" bitter. Ok, smooth malty background. Overpriced, unbalanced, too simple, and yet not entirely bad I guess. I can’t think of a person to recommend it to though.

77ships (5299) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAY 28, 2014
Courtesy of & thanks to Kraddel. 75 cl. bottle sampled @ “Poppyland Sucks Tasting” @ the Barely legal tasting room. Hazy oily orange with only some bubbles on top. Smells quite oily, herbal bitter, touch herbs, medicinal hops, bit watery. Tastes bitter herbal, touch alcohol, oily some watery sugar, sweetish leading into herbal and touch medicinal hop finish. Somewhat watery body. Nothing in the way of balance or structure but it is enjoyable.
