3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
20/04/2011 Brasserie 4:20 (tap). Bevuta al compleanno della Brasserie 4:20, invecchiata un anno in fusto. Wow! Bellissimo color pesca, denso, appena torbido e impenetrabile, schiuma bianca. Al naso spicca l’aroma fruttato di pesca, molto intenso, con lieviti ben in evidenza. In bocca è prevalentemente dolce, delicata, fruttata, di una morbidezza ed eleganza disarmante, con una punta acida deliziosa. Carbonazione corretta, magnifica consistenza vellutata, in bocca sembra un petalo di rosa. Bellissima fruit beer.

Pours a hazy orange with a large bubbly white lacing head. Aroma of fresh peaches and other Belgians yeast fruity notes. Flavor had the peaches and Belgian yeast profile as well. No funk, would like better if it had some bugs.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle to snifter. Pours pale gold with a peach hue and shows a split second of white soapy head. Aroma is tart and barnyard with a sour peach scent. Taste is more of the above with a nice gentle sourness and there are some faint citrus and leamon notes. Palate is medium with a very dry finish! Not a bad brew, but will not go back to it due to price!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Thanks Gene! Hay colored, moderate cream head, medium-sized bubbles with light lacing. Herbal nose of perfume, caramel, and brown sugar, very well rounded. Flavor is fruity and vinous, sweet grapes ruling, but it’s a bit wartery and oddly balanced between heavy sugar/caramel and lighter, straightforward fruit. Short, lightly peppery grain finish.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Birra di indiscusso valore nonostante il rating basso, dovuto principalmente a unu esordio non brillantissimo. Le ultime quarte runa sono strabilianti. Il 4 è una media tra il 3 scarso delle prime cotte e il quasi 5 delle ultime. Forse attualmente la miglior birra italiana in assoluto.

Bottle at RnH during the Sours Gone Wild Event with Pat, Andrew, Dallas & Bobby. Pours a bright, bright hazy orange body with no head, but then again this sample is pretty small considering its from a bottle. Aroma is citrus and peach. Mouthfeel is dry with notes of pilsner malt, fruit, and bitter peach.
