Hazy pale orange colour with big fluffy head. Dry, spicy cobwebby yeast aroma, grassy and bit bitter-ish already. Light bodied and citric. Accompanying bitterness and bid wild in the yeast profile. Italian herbs in the background, which is a bit disturbing.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pretty good. Ultra light bodied. Peppery taste, aroma, and finish with some notes of cinnamon and yeast. Needs a little more strength to be a good beer. Highly carbonated and too fizzy.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught, Bir & Fud, Rome.
Head is fully lasting.
Body is hazy medium yellow.
Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly to moderately hoppy (herbs, flowers), with notes of pepper, lemon zest, and gum.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter.
Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation.
Surprisingly good. Very fresh, and frankly I had no idea it was spiced. *shrug* After small samples of several other Italian beers at this restaurant (no ratings, just looking for something enjoyable to drink), this one was the clear winner. Excellent balance in the mouth. Along with Tipopils, the only beer I finished a glass of.

Birra profumata, corpo leggero, molto beverina anche dato il tenore alcolico.

15th December 2008. Cloudy gold beer, thin white head. A slightly fruity and watery beer that is quickly overwhelmed by hot and dry spices. Ginger stands out. A little spice afterburn on the finish as well. Over spiced for a Saison.

Bottle at the ’Coles Italian Beer Festival’, Buffalo, NY. Pours a cloudy yellow with a small white head. Aroma of lemon, yeast, light grassiness, some light sweetness and a good amount of fruit. Flavour pretty much follows the aroma: Citrus, yeast, grassiness and a hint of pepper added.
Average bodied, lightly carbonated. It’s just good, an average Saison.
