3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap @Ma che siete venuti a fà (Rome). Dorata carica, abbastanza limpida, schiuma biancastra abbondante, non molto persistente. Al naso ha una componente luppolata nettamente predominante, quindi sentori di lievito, stalla. In bocca è eccellente, amara e apparentemente semplice, si mostra in realtà assai appagante, pur avendo una beva straordinaria. Corpo medio-leggero, carbonazione buona. Davvero una gran bella birra.

Growler from the brewery.
Pours a sparklingly clear light golden color with a huge persistent frothy bone white head. Funky earthy spicy aromas with just a hint of bread. The flavor follows the aroma but ads just a touch of light citrus fruitiness. Great lightly funky brew.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Blackback. Hazy, fiery orange. Apple, champagne vinegar, caramelized pear, chamomile, cream of wheat. Layered aroma with excellent balance of yeasty esters, regal malts and delicate hop presence.
Floral notes and mealy fruit characters are the dominant flavors, with distant gravelly notes forming a funky haze. The secondary shades tend to get heavy and sweet in the manner of overripe fruit.
This contributes to a plasticky textural sheen, which is an awkward blend for the otherwise semi-dry, clean palate. There’s a lot of quality here; the sweet-overripe-waxy combo gets it a little out of whack.

On tap at Silly’s. Pours a murky yellow with a white head. Big citrus aroma. Some peppery notes with a good balance and easy drinking. It was a hot day and it went down well even though it was not my favorite style.
