Birra Del Borgo "Enkir"
on tap @ No.Au, Rome, Italy on 1 December 2015
5€ / 33 cl. glass

Notes: Brewed with 55% Triticum Monococccum, the first domesticated corn. Clear amber body. Bright white head. Very good head retention and lacing. Aroma: malty, fruity (apricot), coriander, yeast. The flavor follows. 30-40 IBUs. Drying finish as malt erodes. Medium to medium-full body. Interesting and enjoyable.

Hazy honey gold, with no visible carbonation and a half finger of off white head.

Smells of peaches, caramel, and hints of coriander.

Tastes of peaches, roses, caramel, coriander and hints of Belgian yeasts.

Medium, slightly syrupy body, with moderate, spicy carbonation.

Got online, and I'm drinking it in Chiang Mai, January 17th, 2017. Okay brew, good, just not awesome.

Slightly hazy golden color with a huge somewhat fluffy head with good retention.
Funky and sour aroma with notes of pineapple, barnyard, leather, oranges, lime and sulfur.
Mildly tart flavor, not as funky as the nose with lots of yellow fruits, spices, chamomile, herbal hops, tangerine, lemon peel, honey, pear, wheat and pineapple foam juice. Dry aftertaste with a residual tamed acidity.
Bordering medium body with champagne like carbonation.
Refreshing Saison with nice citrus and yellow fruits notes, not too acid, nor too sweet. Not sure I captured any difference related to the Triticum Monococcum, supposedly the first domesticated cereal. It must be the wheat like taste.

Clear amber colour with no head. Disappointing.

Spicy phenolic nose. Coriander and pepper. Stonefruit and banana. Good.

Delightfully light and fruity. No bitterness. Quite sweet.

Pretty flat. Lacking the carbonation that would give this lift. Medium body.

The flavour profiles are nice but the lack of carbonation severely lets this down. It needs something to cut the sweetness.
