Looks like I’m the first one outside of Italy to rate this beer. Big, 1 liter swingtop bottle. Hazy orange color with a medium off white head. Spicy, floral aroma with a bit of citrus and a touch of celery. Mildly tart flavor, with the spices and floral aspects somewhat muted. Citrusy and quite refreshing. Most who sampled this with me at the HW open house initially thought the beer kind of boring. After a while however, the beer started to become much more enjoyable. Perhaps it was due to the fact that it was 90 degrees outside and were drinking some big beers, but it was a nice change of pace.

Had this one for a couple weeks, as it seems it’s now available in the US. 1L bottle. Pours a hazy orange with a huge creamy eggshell head. Aroma is sour fruits and a little funk--kinda saison-y, some floral aromas, misc spices. Flavor is quite tangy--maybe from the elderberry (I haven’t had elderberries in years, so I can’t remember their taste)? Some dust is also in there with some grassy hops, this doesn’t get very bitter. Biscuity finish. Very light bodied, highly carbonated. Nothing exceptional, but not bad by any means. In fact, pretty good.

Bottle sample at Union Beer Trade Tasting, NYC. Honey-golden colour with a small white head. Aroma is very floral - lots of rose, clover and honey. Flavour is light, with similar floral notes to the flavour but more subdued. Fairly simple, but a nice & unique beer.

Draught Huge very dense & fine head; pinkish-amber beer, orange shine. Very fine, fruity-flowery nose, garden herbs and a hint of lemon(soap), touch of vanilla. Soft-sweet, very lightly fruity taste, with a sharper citrus spike, cider-like, in the bottled version. Again vanilla retronasal. Very lightly bodied, slick, a bit oily, but ending dry and extremely well-attenuated. This is probably one of the best summer drinking beer ever had - big congrats to the brewer for this effort in such a light beer.

Skyview (6093) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - FEB 22, 2008
Sampled at Cellars Wine & Spirits in St Paul, MN, and shared by brewfiend. Pours a semi-hazy golden brew with an average off-white head that quickly dissipates to a fine film. Aroma of light golden grain malt, some citrus zest and grassy hop character and a touch of apricots. Taste is medium bodied, some light carbonation with flavors of golden grain malt, some citrus hops, white grape and some fruity pear. Finish is semi-sweet, fruity aftertaste that slowly disappears with a light grapefruit finish.

Bibendum (117) - ITALY - JUN 13, 2012
Colore arancio. Forte odore con prevalenza di agrumi. In bocca si conferma il sapore principale di agrumi, a tratti quasi citrico. Leggere, quasi impercettibile il sapore dei petali di rosa. Ben bilanciata e in bocca il suo sapore permane a lungo.

jtclockwork (17070) - , New Jersey, USA - JUL 19, 2012
Bottle. Pours cloudy yellow. White head. Nose and taste of elderberry, citrus peel, herbs, wheat malt, banana, florals, rye, pepper and Honey. Light bodied. Much more complexity in nose.
