Sample from bottle, CBF 2012. Clear, golden colour with a white, fluffy head. Sweet and yeasty aroma with berries and caramel, faint note of roasted chestnuts. Sweet taste. Light to medium body with a thinnish texture. Finishes sweet with caramel malts, citrus, yeast and berries. Nice.

Hirotoma (471) - Bologna, ITALY - FEB 17, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 28, 2012 Buona birra davvero! Si sentono le castagne subito poi dopo un po meno, molto equilibrata! Si presenta molto bene con un bel colore ambrato e buona schiuma non molto persistente, il retrogusto non e duraturo e unica pecca si sente un po di sapore metallico! 28/05/2012. Ribevuta in bottiglia, migliorata nellaroma ancora pi castagne e luppolo, migliora anche il gusto, castagne pi evidenti un tocco fantastico di luppolo, retrogusto pi persistente, il sapore metallico riscontrato alla prima bevuta, completamente sparito!
