COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

fiulijn (20222) - Vancouver, British Columbia, - FEB 1, 2013
2012-08-20, courtesy of Jesper; Raccolta Luppolo 2011, L050/120 Apr 2014, 6.5% ABV, 5-3-5-2-9=24
Cloudy blond color. This beer has a character of puke, straws, yeast. Bottle shock or real poor beer?

2012-06-17, bottle from Eataly, Bologna; Raccolta Luppolo 2011, 4.5% ABV, 7-4-7-3-14=35
Cloudy bond color with creamy white head, persistent. Mild aroma, some spicy malt and fruity hop, apricots. The mouthfeel is quite astringent because of the high yeast presence; spicy malt flavor, very Belgian, with a moderately sweet and fruity final.
Yeasty and spicy Ale.
