Pours murky yellow with no head. Angels of spices and malt. Tastes light, sweety, malty, and spicy. Cardamon, sage, make. Sweet, clean finish.

bhensonb (10692) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 19, 2010
750 from Star Grocery in Berkeley, CA. Opens with a pop, and it gushes. Pour is hazy, amber ripe stone fruity with a foamy head that quickly leaves. Strong ripe light stone fruit aromas. Near full in body with creamy carbonation. Flavor is ripe light stone fruit with some yeastiness. But the main impact is near ripe peach or apricot. The flavor is lush and fruity. I’m not getting sage. But this is one fantasic tasting ale. Even more tasty than the Demon Hunter.

flavio_b (277) - ROME, ITALY - NOV 11, 2012
On tap @macche. Sweet with sage taste, it has a pleasant spicy taste. It seemed easy to drink to me despite its alcohol gradation which is not so low. No head with a bitter finish. Very good beer.

Cavie (3746) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - DEC 21, 2009
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.

IlBevitorediLA (452) - ITALY - NOV 8, 2012
Montegioco continua a stupirmi. Birre originali ma fatte benissimo. Nel bicchiere si presenta ambrata tendente all’arancio. Poca schiuma poco persistente. Al naso subito floreale, speziata e con note di frutti rossi, soprattutto fragola. Al palato ingresso liscio con un successivo exploit abbastanza corposo di note calde dell’alcohol e dei frutti rossi per virare verso il finale in un amaro erbaceo. Quando si scalda si sente (almeno io l’ho sentito) il gusto e l’odore caratteristico del provolone piccante ( o comunque di qualcosa di formaggioso).

fiammanghilla (489) - Genova, ITALY - NOV 24, 2013
Bottiglia 75 cl, comprata da eataly è bevuta a casa. Ambrata torbida con schiuma fine. Profumo di salvia, piuttosto secca ed amara, bel corpo pieno. Nel finale amarognolo esce una punta di salvia che la rende intrigante ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhold

Theydon_Bois (7898) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2012
Tap at Open Baladin, Roma - 02/10/12. Slightly hazy golden with no head. A certain sourness to the nose, sour mango, peach and apricot. Taste follows but the flavours aren’t quite as prominent as the nose. Medium bodied with little carbonation leading to a slightly sour and fruity finish,

LordCorkscrew (1774) - Ronco Scrivia (GE), ITALY - APR 25, 2009
Notevolissima birra di Montegioco, l’ideale per far ripartire la serata dopo il viaggio in macchina Nervi-Leivi.
