3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at Gingerman. Pours a clear auburn with standard white head. Aroma is primarily toasted sesame seeds and cereal. Buttery flavor, almost popcorn-like, with notes of toast, simcoe, and roasted malt. I keep going back to "toasty." A touch too buttery.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep amber colour. This beer pours a good creamy head, slowly diminishing, but quite persistent. Hazelnut, apricot and alcohol in the aroma. The taste is moderately sweet with traces of caramel, spices and peach. The aftertaste is quite bitter and alcoholic, with traces of chestnut (typical for this brewery, even if much lighter than the normal Pietra beer) and almonds. Interesting beer, just like all the products of this brewery!
