Cloudy blond color; eggwhite-like foam. Delicate aroma, both fruity and flowery, very light banana and almond. Medium dry mouthfeel, smooth, with simple mix of flavors, light fruits, light sourness. Original, but nothing special.

UPDATED: SEP 29, 2008 Very fine & dense white head, over fully hazy straw beer. White wine nose, like a demi-sec, very fine southern wine. A bit of human sweat, a lot of grapes, some coriander, obviously wine like. Champenoise pearling & MF, really wine-like. Very strange, delicate beer, but not exactly exciting.
Mille grazie, Lorenzo!
Second rating, specially aged version at the brewery.
Gushing but no head; hazy pale yellow beer. [3/5]Very grapy, white winegrape nose, sharp, going over in clear white wine. [8/10]Soft-sweet, winy taste, oseille/zurkel, like fish cooked with white wine & vegetables in foil. Exceptional flavours. Wood, vinous, some restsugars. [8/10]Fiery MF, light body yet nowhere empty. [3/5]Great beer, with a totally unedited flavourprofile. Mille grazie, Ricardo, for a try of this very limited beer. [16/20]
Total: 3.8/5 for the longer aged version.
