The first 100% Italian beer made with Italian ingredients. An intentionally simple beer: Italian water, barley malt, hops, yeasts and two Italian spices (bergamot and coriander) which combine to create harmony and originality. A beer which suggests more or less daring combinations, but more importantly marks a turning point in the Italian production of craft beer. Nazionale, is excellent as an aperitif and goes well with any dish. 13.6 EBC 10

Allapertura della bottiglia un p di gushing, poi schiuma presente ma non molto persistente, allolfatto molto evidente il pepato e speziato del lievito seguito da un tocco floreale luppolato. In bocca ritroviamo le stesse sensazione cun un finala amaro piuttosto lungo e spezie ben in evidenza.

caribou43 (800) - Lausanne, SWITZERLAND - JAN 18, 2017
I bought this beer at Crevoladossola, Ipercoop. I drank it with Massimo at home. In my opinion, it is a decent Belgian ale, with all the qualities that you can expect. The color is yellow/gold and troubled, regular carbonation, sparkling, thin and white foam. The taste is well balanced, malt, sugar, coriander, some hop but discreet, few notes of sourness, coriander notes, refreshing.
