tabernarius (34) - Pisa, - DEC 3, 2013
75cl bottle @ Da’r Gallo, paired with carpaccio with truffle; good and easy to drink, hoppy and well balanced, but a bit too earthy and yeasty. Carbonation too high

Silvan7 (700) - Samarate, ITALY - SEP 2, 2014
on TAP @ Eataly Birre in Piazza 2014. Ambrata carica, velata, schiuma Beige fine abbastanza persistente. Aroma fruttato, frutta secca, nocciola. Erbaceo da luppolo. Caramello ed un po’ di toffee. Amara, secca. Poco calda, bassa carbonatazione e poco corposa, qausi watery (ok per lo stile).

ogivlado (5721) - 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 (29) - 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 (3933) - 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 (3778) - 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.

Hazy amber beer with a small off white head. Smooth palate, a little dry. Bitterish marmalade hops with a little grapefruit. Light apply streak. Reasonable malt base. Finishes dry and bitter. Could do without the apple, but otherwise good.
