On Tap @ "Babel" pub, Candelo [BI], Italy. As far as I know, this beer is produced by brewer Enrico Terzo [Birrificio Un Terzo, in Candelo] only for this pub, both in bottle and on tap. Nice off-white head, excellent head retention [they use a small precentage of wheat in the recipe], lasts until the end of the glass. Amber orange in colour. Nose is a real duel, citrus from the Cascade and white grapes from the Nelson Sauvin, they do not blend harmoniously. The body is almost oily, goes down very smoothly, with a nice round bitterness. The tropical fruit hints come out in the aftertaste, even though it doesn’t last lng, and it leaves your mouth very dry and wanting more. Available in a 33 cl glass only, unfortunately.
Amber with poor foam. Malt caramel and some herbal aroma. At taste is light sweet and medium bodied, very very light bitter ending.
