3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
14/05/2013 Ma che siete venuti a fà (330ml bottle, 2012 version). Bellissimo color rubino, sangue di piccione, intenso e scuro, schiuma bianca venata rossiccia, abbondante e discretamente persistente. Naso sublime, molto pulito, sentori nettissimi di ciliegia, lieviti selvatici, leggero citrico, fantastica! In bocca è morbida, sentori di ciliegia, una punta di caramello, lieve acidità, finale non così secco, ma pulito. Corpo medio, carbonazione medio-bassa. Fantastica, Montegioco non sbaglia un colpo!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
33cl bottle. 2012 vintage. Label reads 8.7% ABV. It pours deep dark ruby/brown/ purple with a large beige/ pinkish head. Aroma is sweet with molasses, cherries, light funk and some booze. Taste is sweet and lightly acidic with cherries, red berries, somw caramel and hints of wood. Some alcohol as well. Overall, nice complexity and appreciated the natural cherry flavour. Anyways some more fruitiness and acidity would make for a better beer to me.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle 375 ml tasted @ Karhisma Birroteca (Piedimonte Matese, Caserta - Italy). Pours some cloudy and intense orange with red reflexes. NO head at all, even if you shake up the glass. Aroma... uh, where it is? Should someone call a detective agency? I don’t overdo, simply can’t find notes of anything. Maybe, and SO distant, cherries. But you have to apply to succeed. Anyway. Flat body, something malty and cherries again too. Candy sugar, medium carbonation. Harsh finish, not persistent. Totally anonymous, too bad.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle 37,5 cl. Courtesy of yespr. Pours a cloudy pale red with a tiny off-white head. Minerally aroma with dry red berry notes - not really distinctly cherry. Medium body, carbonation is a little low, slightly sweet berry fruitiness with a little yeast and phenols. The alcohol is fairly subdued. Not really that interesting, but at least genuine fruit. 190511
