Bottle beers of Europe. Medium sourness, with cherry notes. Yeasty, surprisingly easy drinking for a 9% beer, almost verging on thin. Some good background biscuit, accompanying a rich malty earthiness.

Gusto dolce abboccata, poco acida. Abbastanza amara. Tostata, con gusto di lievito e frutta secca (noce). Speziata di coriandolo. Astringente, poco corposa, calda e carbonata. Abbastanza equilibrata (sembra annacquata) e armonica.
