Kosmokrator (475) - - JUL 22, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 12, 2013 Limpido color bruno-rossastro con un cappello di soffice schiuma bianco sporco. Aroma ricco di note floreali e resinose, sentori di frutta fresca, luppolo e una parvenza di caramello. Gusto lievemente fruttato che diviene subito amarognolo e secco, retrogusto luppolato molto persistente. Spillata come si deve diventa più corposa e nel finale diventa più ’’calda’’ grazie all’abv, effervescenza nella norma.

sebletitje (6641) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAY 13, 2014
Draft @ Mi & Ti, Milano. Ambrée, col blanc. Arôme fermenté houblonné sur un léger fruité et en rtéo nasal pas mal de levure tirant sur le pâle et cara. Palais est houblonné et amer, fini léger malté, pointe d’agrumes. Alcool se ressent, note un léger côté rappelant la sève et des agrumes, possible Simcoe et Cascade. Note caramel résiduel pour une bière oscillant sur la frontière d’une IPA mais qui au final manque de convaincre. Au final, le tout n’ayant pas aidé, les gens du bar ne savaient même pas que cette bière n’était pas une bière de BQ mais de Orso Verde. Bref ....

Ambro206 (108) - ITALY - FEB 13, 2014
Birra corposa, abbondantemente luppolota. L’amaro prepotente si sposa alla perfezione con l’alcolicità e il forte sapore di caramello. Gusti estremi per una birra di carattere. Mai banale, sempre piacevole.

Dark orange, low white head. Sweet buttery smell, not too refined bitter taste with predominant american hops. Just decent beer.

fiammanghilla (533) - Genova, ITALY - FEB 2, 2014
Pompa con dryhopping @ le birre della merla 2014. Ambrata con buona schiuma. Molto amara e resinosa, il ripasso in dry si fa sentire!

Ragnampiza (386) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - JAN 4, 2014
500 ml bottle from beer-shop.it served in a pint glass. Pours a deep sunrise orange, slightly hazy, with a tiny light beige head, quite persistent. Very aromatic aroma with tons of different notes: caramel/toffee, light liquorice, lots of pine and resin from the hops, a hint of bubblegum and sone wild types of fruits as well. Again fruity and malty in the mouth, with some caramel in the beginning followed by a citrus marmelade kind of flavour. The aftertaste is long, quite bitter, complimented by a light nutty sweetness. On the higher side of medium body wise, average carbonation and creamy - almost chewy - texture. Kinda like an American DIPA and an English Strong Ale hybrid. The alchool is totally hidden. I’ll be happy to try more beers from Orso Verde. Very well done!

Personalità e carisma rinchiusi in una granata militare, non adatto alle checche e ai deboli di cuore. Cerchi l’amaro? Bevi Rebelde! Cerchi una botta di sapore? Bevi Rebelde! Cerchi un Birrone? Bevi Rebelde!!!

Si presenta molto bene con bel rossastro carico. Il naso è davvero esplosivo, molto profumato. In bocca è anche equilibrata, niente male.

Silvan7 (676) - Samarate, ITALY - APR 15, 2013
Bottle @ sister pub. Buon profumo di luppolo aromatico, e un po’ di caramello amaro. Schiuma bianca fine e cremosa. Colore ambrato con punte rame. All’assaggio è di corpo medio, poco carbonata e secca. Finale luppolato astringente. Gusto di caramello, cannella e con sentori erbacei.
