Kind of a complex beer.
It has a turbid appearance, of umber color and a beige foam.
Smell is yeasty, with fruity notes of lemon and pear, with spicy notes like peper and with sweet notes like caramel and syrup.
Taste is similar in the beginning, gets sour after some time and then gets bitter and dry in the end, with some sweet honey notes in the lips.
Body and carbonation are a somewhat high level.
Yeah, that's a good and complex beer. But for some reason I didn't find it great.

A: Pours a slightly hazy orange with two fingers of off-white head that recedes into a thin layer with decent lacing.

S: Sour and sweet citrus up front, reminiscent of lemons. Some light candy sugar and bubblegum aromas follow along with a good amount of must and funk.

T: The funk really dominates in the flavor, giving some musty and barnyard flavors. Sour lemony citrus flavors follow with a lightly bitter but clean finish.

M: Medium-light body with medium carbonation, this beer is light, dry, and refreshingly clean.

O: Described as a "saison IPA," this beer is definitely more saison than IPA. The hop notes were faint, but the sour and funky aspects of the beer were quite good. It was refreshingly tart and funky.

A - Gorgeous amber ale color, huge head.

S - Sweet honey, lemon, wine.

T - Win in a beer glass. Sweet, lemony, tart, slight dryness on back end.

M - some chewiness, lots of wine-like tannins.

O - Really tasty. Makes sense it tastes like wine since it's from Italia. Well done.
