"Beer is brewed with farro, traditionally grown in the territory of the Regional Park of Monti della Duchessa. It is golden, with orange hues, barely-concealed; the foam is abundant, and creamy. The nose is very broad, fruity (banana, pineapple, tropical fruit and floral, with a light and pleasant peppery. In the mouth the carbonation and end, there is a slight acidity and the body and adequate. The hopping and moderate, very pleasant, fresh." From the brewers website.

Served in a chalice at the Lions Pride.
The beer is orange with wispy white lace.

The aroma is a sweet malty, with notes of orange and other floral notes.
It begins with a slight tingle of carbonation in the mouth, taste of orange and citrus, more acidic then the nose would indicate. The hops are grassy and come in but are not overwhelming. (824 characters)
