1pint bottle. pours murky faded orangish brown and a white head around the rim. looks pretty bad. you can really pick out all the spices listed, lots of oregano and tomatos, with garlic and basil in the mix too. it does smell like pizza. taste, yep, it really does taste like pizza, is that a good thing, no. notes garlic, basil, tomato. way too many spices. it almost works but its too easy to pick out the individual spices and the beer itself never holds its own. a watery undercarbonated body.

Hazy dark hefe colored brew. Modest diminishing off-white head, that settles to a thin lid. Italian spice and light tomato aromas. Luckily this is not the bad tomato scent, rather a garlic tomato paste nose. A most intriguing aroma, this really does smell like a simple cheese pizza. Oregano dominates the flavors, with some tomato paste in the background. Garlic and light basil swim in in out. This is a pizza beer, I’m not sure I would want it with my pizza though. A light garlic linger. I have to say I enjoy this for what it is. I could see adding this to many things, from chili, marinara, to pizza sauce. Just thought of another idea, how about for boiling italian sausage? A truly unique and workable brew.

I read about this in the Chicago Tribune and was excited to find it bottled at Binny’s in Wheeling. Color is a cloudy is a cloudy, darkish orange with a dissipating head. Nose is oregano, garlic and malts. Sweet malts in the forefront of the taste, with the garlic, tomatoes and oregano at the background. Mouth feel is nice and medium bodied. Interesting beer. I was scared at first, but it was worth a try.

[WBA styles tasting] Definitely tastes like pizza. Sundried tomatoes, garlic, oregano.. so distinctive. These brewers deserve credit, though, it’s drinkable pizza.

Found this one bottled at Binny’s in St. Charles, Illinois. Bottle says that this was brewed by Sprechers. Cloudy, dark orange pour with a rapidly dissipating white head. Oregano and sweet malts in the nose, and a bit of garlic, permeates strongly throughout. This is very good; I don’t know if I could drink a ton of this but I’d like to try with some Chicago style pie.
