3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from In Bocca al Luppolo
Dark amber color; small creamy head that reduces quickly. Light aroma, alcohol, chestnut honey (that disappears quickly), unimpressive. Medium body strength, with some caramel flavor, but with a dry impression towards the end; the fermented honey leaves too little body and too much alcohol. Nothing special.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
The aroma is not what was expected. I do get some nuttiness but it’s mostly yeasty and somewhat herbal with some light fruit. The appearance is chestnut brown with a small but nice head. The palate is smooth but thin. Overall it’s not good.
