4.03/5  rDev +12.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Slightly hazy blonde with fast-fading white head that leaves the odd trailer. Grapefruit, straw and a touch of Belgian yeast on the nose.
Clean pale grain with Saltines and a bit of mango and candy sugar plus maybe some elderflower then grapefruit and Limoncello hops.
Lemon peel finish and long bitter linger. Dry, soft, creamy, light to medium.

Wouldn't have thought there was anything Belgian about this - just a clean, Cali-style pale ale. Mouthfeel is superior, as usual for Italians. Made to appeal widely, and I could see it fitting with all sorts of foods.

Top table beer.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Sent to me as free sample from PR people.
a) Hazy pale amber, 1cm white dense head.
s) Phenolic, candle shop perfume, potpourri
t) Very fruit driven; stonefruit, green toffee apple, strong bitterness.
m) Somewhat finegrained astringency, dusty mouthfeel
d) Like drinking green apple skins. The lable advises to drink with fatty rich foods; it would cut through the grease. Definitely a food beer.

Thanks to Roman70 for sharing this brew
This bottle has a year on it
A - Pale orangish/yellow. The first pour (My pour) was clear with a thick bone white head that falls slowly.
S - Floral/ fruity hops, a little funk
T - Light hops tingly light fruit flavors. A little musty tasting as well - maybe the age.
M/F - Light body with active carbonation
D - A decent beer that I would think would taste better when fresh. Next time.

This one is a hazy, burnt-golden color with a marvelously rocky head. The aroma has a grapefruity, citric quality, mixed with a little grass and lightly toasted malt. Nothgin special. The taste has the same hop character, with a pleasant bitterness that is present throughout the taste. Long, hoppy aftertaste. Moderately dry, with a lighter than expected body. No particular aspect of this beer takes the spotlight, and none is exceptional great either. However, there's also no particularly great flaws in the brew, which is decidedly middle of the road in flavor.

3.3/5  rDev -8.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5

The color is a opalescent orange. A beautiful white and creamy foam. Beautiful.
The smell is a light malt, with good notes of hay and grassy. Hints of tropical fruits.
The taste is quite fruity (melon, pineapple). All balanced by a generous hopping.
Quite bitter in the aftertaste, too.
Well balanced, pleasant and drinkable.
Good.
