heavy (2817) - Split, CROATIA - MAY 31, 2014
09/11 A 0.75l bottle courtesy of oviglado, huge thanks for sharing! It poured hazy golden body with big head atop. Typical Italian "artigialale" aroma, yeasty, lightly sweet fruity malt with some herbal hops. Similar flavor, sweetish but also only a bit bitter, fruity with more pronounced vanilla now on expense of yeast note which is a big plus. Touched with spiciness like pepper or some herbs as well. Medium bodied with longer creamy, lightly sweetish peach and vanilla finish. Herbal hops driven all the way through the end, too. Well, definitely a fine beer, but I can’t find anything too special in it.

3.6
sebletitje (10080) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAY 18, 2014
Draft sample @ Birra Expo’14 Piacenza. Orangée trouble, col fin crémeux blanc cassé. Arôme offre un bouquet agréable mettant bien en avant ce côté herbacé de sauge. Malt de type pils-pâle sur un rétro poussiéreux. Palais est axé sur le malté et grains, côté sauge donne un très beau caractère à la bière. Malt garde aussi une pointe biscuitée, carapils avec une bonne bouche herbacée qui est unique et permet à la bière de se différencier de la banalité de ses consœurs belges.

monk191 (1976) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 15, 2014
A decent Italian beer. Pours a nice cloudy orange. Smells of peach and figs, and maybe a bit of wine grapes. Taste is quite sweet upfront, with lots of figs, but with a slightly dry, unambitious finish. Had in the bottle at La Trappe’s Italian event.
