L’Olmaia La Brigida Spicy Blonde Ale
Birrificio L’Olmaia: LaBrigida Spicy Blonde Ale. Samea kullankeltainen olut vaahtoaa hieman. Tuoksu hieman hedelmäinen, viljaisen maltainen. Maku aika pehmeä, aavistuksen sitruksisen katkera, vähän viljainen.

Le Cencie La Ganza
75 cl bottle. Clouldy yellow color, massive and lively rocky white head that does not settle down. Aroma is prominently hoppy, bittering hops has a key role here. Light malty, with sugar, some candy and a fleble fruity note. Taste is balanced, sugary and intensely bitter. Carbonated, medium bodied, creamy/foamy texture, mouthfilling, smooth finish.

Helder paarsrood bruin bier met kleine romige beige schuimkraag. Aroma: ruikt naar een Amerikaanse gerst wijn, moutig, gedroogd fruit. Smaak: zoet, donkere chocolade, rozijnen, gedroogde vruchten. Gemiddeld mondgevoel met gemiddeld koolzuur en bittere afdronk met koffie/chocolade nasmaak.

L’Olmaia La 9
Pours a cloudy colour of rust with a great head of foam. I figured that since it was an extremely slow gusher. The nose is fruity with apple, evidence of mild tartness, flowery and to me, has a mint presence. Apple and some tartness up front, followed by an assertive Brett character. Again, mint and an abundance of bitterness. Medium body with champagne like carbonation. Good points, bad points. The sharpness and uber dryness make it not overly drinkable.

Birra ambrata con riflessi ramati, schiuma crema abbondante e con un buon lacing. Al naso note di erbaceo e fruttato con sottofondo di caramello. In bocca il corpo è medio con un amaro lungo e persistente, ma non imponente. Sul finale note di agrumi rinfrescano la bevuta.

L’Olmaia Duck
Una bella birra dal colore marrone e riflessi aranciati. Ha una imponente schiuma crema molto persistente e con un buon allaccio al bicchiere. Al naso i luppoli radono al suolo tutto quello che poteva venir fuori da una reale setong belgian Ale lasciando campo aperto a sentori di agrumato ed un mix di caramello e note resinoso. In bocca il corpo è pieno e l'amaro è in evidenza. Il finale è balsamico con note di radici di liquirizia e genziana.

Robe orangée/ambrée, la mousse ne tient pas. Arômes agrumes, résine, herbal. Goût très résineux sans aucune saveurs. Rien que de l’amertume. Une bière décevante.

Bottle bought outside Firenze. I got 5 random beers from Italy. The first 4 was really dissappointing. This one was a nice surprise. Not to strong aroma, but malt, fruit and yeast is present. Taste is much of the same, but a very nice bitter ending. Good. Copy paste from notes written in summer 2015.

On tap @ IBF Pub Edition, Milano. Il gusto al naso ricorda il luppolo e il caramello. L’intensità olfattiva è elegante e la persistenza olfattiva è sufficiente. Il cappello di schiuma a bollicine fini e bassa carbonazione rimane sul vetro come pizzo. La frizzantezza è a bollicine. Il colore è marrone chiaro. Il corpo è pieno. L’amaro è medio. L’intensità gustativa è elevata e la persistenza gustativa è buona. Il gusto va verso l’estremo. Il finale è lungo. L’aroma ricorda l’arrostito, l’etilico, il torbato e il bruciato.

Marrone scuro, praticamente nera con riflessi caramello, schiuma tra l'ocra ed il nocciola copiosa, irregolare di persistenza media, medio-bassa. Aroma di caramello, caffè tostato, leggerissimo cacao ed erbaceo, leggera vaniglia, lieve nota acida che ricorda i fondi di caffè. Al palato è sempre il caffè a prevalere, caramello, leggerissima vaniglia; nel finale nota di cioccolato e lieve nota etilica, coda amaricante tostata ed erbacea. Corpo medio, molto carbonata, anche troppo...

Ambrata opalescente con riflessi color albicocca, schiuma bianca abbastanza grossolana ma di buona persistenza. Aroma erbaceo ed agrumato, zuccherino e leggera crosta di pane. Al palato amaro erbaceo molto marcato equilibrato da una dolcezza zuccherina e leggermente metallica, amaro agrumato e crosta di pane. Corpo leggero, ben carbonata, discretamente beverina. A mio avviso più che una english bitter mi sembra una APA.

Marrone molto scura con riflessi color rubino, schiuma beige di buona persistenza. Aroma di caffè tostato molto forte misto ad un erbaceo ed un leggero agrumato dati da una luppolatura "forse troppo importante"; man mano che riposa nel bicchiere viene fuori anche un leggero aroma di caramello, leggera nota alcolica. Al palato si sente quasi soltanto il caffè tostato, successivamente la coda è principalmente erbacea ed agrumata, mentre in un secondo momento vira verso un discreto amaro tostato. Corpo medio-leggero, mediamente carbonata.

Dorata pallida opalescente, schiuma bianca molto persistente ma non molto fine. Aroma di coriandolo che vira verso il pepe, passion fruit e pompelmo, lievemente maltata (zucchero) ed erbacea. Al palato parte dolce per poi lasciare strada prima ad una nota di crosta di pane, successivamente passa prepotentemente verso il passion fruit e l'agrumato, con una lunga coda amara agrumata ed erbacea molto molto lunga. Corpo leggero, ben carbonata.

Bottle from Eataly in Rome. BB 16.03.2016. Pours medium brown, appears black in the glass. The head’s thick, cream-coloured, and drops to a film, leaving little lacing. The nose is roasted malts, some bitter chocolate, red berry and black bread sourness. Tastes basically the same. Sweet. Very active, thin carbonation. Dry, roasty finish. Some hop bitterness. One-dimentional and rather simple - I tend not to make much of dryish stouts...
