It pours a cloudy caramel color. The head is a light tan. It has a fruity cherry aroma with caramel malts. It has flavors of cherry, bread, cereal and a bit of caramel. It has an excellent mixture of flavors on the palate and goes down quite smooth.

Bottle, shared with Parksy and Grippitis. Very hazy amber, thin tan head. Fruity caramel profile, somewhat vinous character. Quite thin actually. I’ve tried two beers fom this brewer. Both bottles made quite a big deal about this brewer having been Italian Brewer Of The Year in 2009. Neither beer has shown any reason why this happened.
