4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bionda con schiuma pannosa aderente. Al naso intensi aromi di malto e luppolo. Equilibrio bilanciato verso l’amaro decisso e corposità media. Nel palato i sentori erbacei, floreali e leggermente agrumati finiscono in secchezza ed astringenza persistente. Birra davvero fatta bene. Bevuta in bottoglia nella Birroteca Vaffalluppolo a Fermo (Italia)
