UPDATED: NOV 30, 2015 Nebuloso color giallo paglierino con un solido cappello di fragile schiuma bianca persistente. Aroma floreale e fresco con sentori di luppolo e pompelmo; gusto mediamente amaro, erbaceo e asciutto con un bel finale persistente. Corpo medio-lieve, effervescenza media, struttura cremosa. Estiva, amara e dissetante!

In bottle. I like this beer a lot. It tastes good until the very end and the alcohol level is quite low. Smells like orange and straight-up lemon. Tastes beautiful. The hint of wheat and oat malt is interesting.

Yest residue throughout the golden body, but a solid, lasting head. Mandarin hops, grassy and light fresh yeast. Also, unfortunately a bit cabbage. Still nice. Good amount of bitterness, lively pleasant body. Not dry in the aftertaste, bit clean even. Nice brew from a brewer full of great ideas and execution skills.
