2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
25cl bottle at Moeder Lambic Fontainas, Brussels (Belgium). Brown, orange, gloomy coloured brew in a lovely glass. This dark amber beer is passion fruit and candy flavoured - a promising sweetness, without artificial scents. The hoppy nose is rather unpleasant: Dirt, dust, hay. The mouth is odd: Vanilla, cream taste, with some sour accents. Not my taste, for sure. The finish however is nice enough, and long. A weird, strangely balanced imperial IPA from Italy!

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Ambrata, velata dai lieviti in sospensione, schiuma bianca non molto persistente.
Aroma di melone maturo, leggero caramello, malto, erbaceo.
Al palato melone maturo, citrica, malto è bella coda amara erbacea ma soprattutto che ricorda il pompelmo, nota alcolica sul finale.
Retrolfatto agrumato e di melone.
Corpo medio-leggero, mediamente carbonata.
Piacevole e "digestiva".

Bevuta alla spina io l’ho trovata decisamente in forma, mi ha impressionato, forte ma non esageratamente, secondo me sa il fatto suo.

33 cl bottle @ hotel room, Rome. BBE 07/2016
Aroma is rather mild with some grainy tones, hay and gooseberry bush. Flavour is rather hoppy with grapefruit, leathery bush leaves and some cereal. Finishes with lingering hoppiness and menthol. Also mild herbal tones. Not exactly balanced and somewhat stuffy.

Backlog rating. Bottle at the Chriso’s May tasting. This is obviously old and well past its prime. It pours a hazy amber color with a small tan head. Aroma is sweet, with notes of ripe melon, honey, dust and cardboard. Taste is again sweet and dusty, with more notes of honey, melon, dried leaves, cardboard. Medium bodied, quite sticky and soft carbonation. Overall, clearly too sweet, hops faded and lightly oxidised, did not stood well the test of (a bit of) time
