Bottle - 330ml. Nice dark copper body with a decent beige foamy head. Its sharp hoppy aroma carries malty, fruity, and yeasty hints. Taste is well balanced and hides the alcohol pretty well. Fruity and yeasty notes are present. Ends with a fair bitter/sour finish. Enjoyable. Stefano (2005) - Thisted, DENMARK - OCT 3, 2010
Brown color with a large white head. Spicy malty aroma with some, caramel and brown sugar. Malty, caramel, with citrus notes in the flavor with a nice bitterness finish. piscator34 (2510) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - SEP 10, 2010
Bottled sample via boutip. Ruby brown in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of red wine, caramel, red apple, and spicy Belgian yeast. Acidic red fruit flavors dominate the palate, and are backed by minerals, toasted malt, pale malt, and magic marker. Medium bodied, but the tartness and slightly fizzy carbonation make it feel a bit lighter on the palate. A hard beer to pin down, yet it’s quite drinkable.

(Bottle, 0.33 l, at Pikkulintu) Poured dark brown and cloudy. Head was medium sized and white. Aroma contained intially malts and molasses and after the beer had warmed up a bit the aroma was dominated by paint thinner. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, paint thinner, raisin, mild roastedness, boiled vegetables and mild bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet and bitter. If you drink this drink it very cold and really quickly. bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - AUG 20, 2010
(11.2oz bottle) Pours a hazy amber body with a medium foamy off-white head. Aroma of candi sugar, raisins, earth, mustiness, Belgian yeast, and wet leather. Flavor of apricots, peaches, raisins, Belgian yeast, brett, and florals. bhensonb (15085) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 19, 2010
11.2 bottle from Oak Tree. Pours hazy ruddy with a 3 finger off-white/beige head. Aromas of dark fruit resembling date/raisin and some warm caramel. Near medium body with rather spritely/fizzy carbonation. It’s a little herby, a little oaky, and lightly bitter. It actually suddenly gets pretty bitter. A different beer - as so many of these Italian crafts are. Takes getting aclimated to. Definitely worth the experience. Wonder if there are chestnuts? Suddenly it comes to me that it’s a little sour. Even better. GonZoBeeR (3061) - ste-catherine, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 16, 2010
