3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
06/07/2013 330ml bottle (thanks Theydon_Bois!). Dorata acida, lievemente torbida, schiuma bianca media a grana fine, molto persistente. Al naso sentori di lieviti, spezie, camomilla, scorza di agrumi, molto delicata. In bocca ha un attacco di miele, dolciastra e un finale amaro e secco, delicata, molto bevibile ed elegante, anche se non perfettamente in stile. Corpo medio-leggero, carbonazione soft. Saison di ottimo livello qualitativo.
