The Etruscan (672) - Tuscany, ITALY - AUG 15, 2016
White foamy full lasting head. Cloudy deep golden honey colour. Aroma is moderately malty with fruity (apple, pear) and light hoppy notes. Flavor is hoppy with light fruity (green apple) tones, ending in an hoppy finish. Light bodied. rondphoto (4383) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - JUL 12, 2016
bottle @ Belmont Party Supply / Dayton OH --- (best by 1/14/15) - Aroma of grass and malt. Cloudy dirty light amber color, frothy white head that stays, hanging lace strands. Taste is somewhat bitter malt that adds medium carbonation on the swallow, then turns progressively sweeter as it moves to a lightly bittered finish. Since it’s over a year past its date, I suspect it is much better than what I have here: a good Belgian that has become a little bitter. siofilippo (6) - ITALY - MAY 15, 2016 does not count

Draft at The Sovereign. Poured a mostly clear yellow color with a fluffy white head atop it. Aroma was light straw/hay, touch of light pepper. Flavor was very pleasant hop notes. Light citrus. Nice. Davros (3132) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JAN 27, 2016
Pours gold with a large lasting head.
Nose shows grassy hops and grainy malt. Little else. Some faint cardboard notes.
Flavours include more of the same: cardboard, metallic notes, grassy and spicy hops. Muggus69 (2435) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - JAN 22, 2016
330mL bottle from International Beer Collector. 2014 vintage BB05/02/16
Hazy pale gold body, holds a rather attractive, well-sized creamy white head throughout.
Interesting nose to it - bread crust & dough, white pepper, zesty lemon rind, touch of grass (hop?), floral undertones, pear esters.
Surprisingly thick creamy body, rather sweet upfront but dries out, touch of acidity in the works too.
Once again, there’s some intrigue to the flavours going on here - dough, leafy spices, cloves & pepper, citrus rind with an accompanying bitter note, sour grapes, green wood, slight earthiness lingers on the finish, slightly astringent like chewing on a bit of wood.
Not sure what to think about it; oddly drinkable, slight bit wild, rustic, but i’m alright with that.
