bu11zeye (12109) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JAN 5, 2010
( 750ml bottle ) Pours a murky orange body with a small white head. Aroma of mustiness, yeast, coriander, and florals. Flavor of Belgian yeast, florals, and herbs (sage in particular). Refreshing. Interesting to try an ale brewed clary sage, as once used as a flavoring agent in beer prior to the introduction of hops.

Bottle courtesy of bu11zeye. Murky orangish color with lots of chunky sediment in it. Sweet aroma with grain and perfumy spice. Flavor of grains that turn sweet later in the sip. Earthy and natural with a fading finish. Incredibly smooth.

Pours a cloudy orange color with a thin white head. Nice aroma of fruits, spices and some funk. The flavor is fruity, spicy and funky, interesting. The body is light with an oily texture and lively carbonation.

hopscotch (9956) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 18, 2009
Bottle (a gusher)... Hazy orange ale with a trillion little floaties tooling slowly about my glass. Small, creamy, white head that hangs around for a good while. I’m not able to pick up much from the aroma other than a little topical fruit, peach and spice. Medium to full-bodied with soft carbonation. Sweet, fruity flavor – honey, peach and tropical fruits. Finishes mildly bitter.

redlight (2317) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUN 4, 2009
thanks to Solan for sharing this one! Sweet sugary malts on the nose, with an herbal earthy note. Pours golden blonde with a thin white head. Sugary upfront, sweet malts, light honey notes, sage, fruity, earhty herbal flavors, with hints of spices. Not bad.

Notevolissima birra di Montegioco, l’ideale per far ripartire la serata dopo il viaggio in macchina Nervi-Leivi.
