3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dorata, opalescente, schiuma bianca pannosa e persistente.
aromi agrumati e resinosi (scorza d’arancia, pompelmo rosa, cedro...)
Secca, poco corpo, piuttosto amara.....fresca e beverina, ma non nelle mie corde.....
Clear straw color with slightly off-white head. As the name suggests, it's zesty on the nose with fresh lemongrass notes and rustic, earthy yeast notes. Taste follows with fresh grass, some floral yeast, earthy notes and a herbal/grassy bitterness on the finish which lingers for a long time. Light to medium body, medium carbonation. A really nice, easy drinking pale ale with a good amount of hops. Taboada (1423) - Compostela (Galiza), - OCT 2, 2017
330 mml bottle. Tasted on the 29/09/2017 at home. Clear blonde colour with a medium off-white head. Aroma of lemon zest, citrics, malts and yeast. Taste is citric, malty and medium hoppy. Ok carbonation. Next one please! aleanguz91 (95) - Grignasco (NO), ITALY - SEP 30, 2017
Bevuta il 30/09/2017 @ChiareScureFestival in Milano. Alla spina. Colore biondo paglierino.
Schiuma abbastanza persistente.
Odore floreale, citrico, di pompelmo.
In bocca le note tropicali vengono accompagnate da un amaro agrumato.
Peccato per la texture acquosa e il poco corpo. Retrogusto amaro erbaceo. bu11zeye (13140) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - SEP 26, 2017
(Draught) Pours a lightly hazy yellow body with a medium white head. Aroma of grapefruit, horse blanket, florals, toasted grain, and orange. Flavor of brett, grapefruit, grass, orange, and wheat with a dry, bitter finish. ClarkVV (6839) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 20, 2017
Draught at Ginger Man, 7/12/17.

Lightly hazy, soft, goldenrod-white peach with plentiful carbonation and a small but well-retained white head.
Fruity yeast and gentle but fragrant hops combine in the nose to provide apple, lemon, strawberry and very light grapefruit on the end. For a non-traditionally hopped Belgian, it doesn't overwhelm and smells obviously similar to Guineu Riner. Lots of plastery/plasticy yeast notes provide some rustic flare and it's clean with sparse cracker-like malt lingering, as well as light citrus.
Dry and tightly carbonated with a fairly malty texture (though tending on the grainy side, slightly), the cracker-like malts provide good texture in concert with the firm carbonation. Lemon, lime, grapefruit and orange peel never get very bitter nor resinous, thankfully, and the Belgian yeast shines through on the finish with just a hint of honey-like malt sweetness lingering, as well. Clean, no alcohol. Very nice stuff, though I must admit Guineu Riner does all this and more at half the abv....
Draught at Open Baladin Torino. Pours hazy orange with a large, creamy white head, long retention with good lacing. Aroma is moderate citrus and pine hops, medium crisp Pils and cereal malt with light fruity esters. Flavor is moderate citrus and pine hops and bitterness, cereal and biscuit malt with a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation. ozzatoadisback (199) - ITALY - SEP 13, 2017
Pale golden with slightest haziness, more hazy on second pour. Good and healthy white head, shows good persistence and nice lacing. Aroma is softly yeasty with a base of dough, fruitiness in the likes of both ripe fruit and citrus and a nice refreshing grassiness. Very nice. Taste follows the aroma, with fruitiness maybe less vivid. Medium sweetness and medium to high bitterness, finishes refreshingly dry and slightly on the grassy bitter side. Light bodied with medium to high carbonation, easy going but quite vivid in the mouth. Overall a very nice and refreshing beer, very clean for it's strong yeasty charachter. geolgau (407) - Cluj-Napoca, ROMANIA - SEP 12, 2017
Aroma is fresh with notes of lemongrass and white bread. Some nice grassy hops also. Taste is weird, though. Little resemblance of a belgian, with a slightly harsh herbal bitterness. Juicy mouthfeel, too much lemongrass. It's like it takes away everything else. Weird, but not that bad after all. AndreaSputo (21) - San Vincenzo Valle roveto, ITALY - AUG 11, 2017
La birra più buona che abbia bevuto tranne la Bracia di Thornbridge, una Orval scaduta e meglio anche di una Vestvleteren XII(calda). Vi darei 0 per il fatto che in Abruzzo siete più introvabili del lavoro...... Beese (3064) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2017
Keg at The Great British Beer Festival 2017, Kensington Olympia. Very sharp and hoppy. Dry, grassy and uncompromisingly bitter.
