The aroma does have nuts and plenty of malt, but the touch of sourness really hurts the aroma. The appearance is nice its cloudy amber with a large head. The taste is like the aroma and hurt by the sour taste. The mouth feel is smooth. Overall it has some good qualities but I don’t really like it that much. tmoreau (4374) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - FEB 13, 2009
Stemware sampler at local beer seminar. Poured a cloudy, deep orange/amber color, with an off white, small-ring head, and minimal lacing. The aroma was nuts and hard wood. The flavor strayed from the aroma to expose some earthy, barnyard and hay notes. Unusual, to say the least, but somewhat in keepng with the SHV style. unclemattie (4358) - Georgia, USA - JAN 15, 2008

Tap at Blind Tiger. Reddish brown with a small white head. Nose is fruity and nutty, some spice (nutmeg?), cranberry, wood. Flavor is sweeter than the nose suggests, maple syrup, cinnamon, toasty malts. Medium bodied, a little sticky on the tongue. martin00sr (4044) - Haderslev, DENMARK - SEP 7, 2016
Clear dark amber, airy beige head. Aroma has dried fruit and malt. Flavour has caramel and dried fruit. Can’t identify the chestnuts. Warming alcohol. Not bad.

UPDATED: NOV 28, 2008 A very nice surprise of a beer. Shared by a friend with others at the Gingerman. A sour nose with butter-y sweet oak sugar. Definitely comes of as a high gravity sour. Taste has some more calming factors. I get a lot of what I can attach to maybe chestnuts. Its earthy and lightly sour as well. A bit ashy but not roasty. Some nice and original aspects.thomat (3868) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 5, 2015
Pretty pour with a strong frothy head on a purplish, orange-ish, dark copper body. Aroma is sour fruit and esters. Comes of as wild strawberries. Taste is similar with a but of a earthy, black tea bite. A bit of a bitterness at the end of the flavor to round it off. Ample carbonation is felt on the tongue, which helps to offset the slightly alcoholic heft to the brew. These Italians know how to make a damn original beer.
Cloudy amber with a tiny off white head. Malty and nutty tones. Malt, fruit, nuts and bitterness. Medium to full body with a nice bitter sweet finish. shigadeyo (3739) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 28, 2009

Late June/Early July 2008: Strada S. Felice has a stong, fragrant chesnut aroma that also has a sour, fruity alt edge to it. The beer is the color of honey as is the foamy head that slowly dissipates. There is some sediment in the beer as well. It tastes toasty and nutty. There is also tart fruitiness in the flavor. This beer is stong and malty with a balanced bitterness and a slightly dry finish. It has a medium body and is smooth despite the high amount of carbonation. This beer isn’t too bad; I like the uniqueness of the chesnuts.
