330ml bottle. The label indicates that it's 'Italian Beer', and yet a German Blonde Lager as well, so who the hell knows.

This beer pours a hazy, medium salmon-tinted golden straw colour, with one finger of broad foamy off-white head, which leaves some random coral reef painted laced around the glass as it steadily settles.

It smells of yeasty bread dough, a smidgeon of citrus, a weird bit of further, late to the party toasted grain, and some herbal/leafy hops. The taste is toasted cereal malt (prompt, this time), a bit of warm, edgy spice, sort of mint-like, musty apples and white grapes, and some grassy herbal notes.

The carbonation is on the low side, just a mildly tacky frothiness overall, the body on the lee side of medium weight, and generally smooth. It finishes with an airy, toasted grain character, plainly singular and interesting all the same.

Well, I am inclined to believe that this could be a BPA, but the brewer-proclaimed classification can't be discounted, as there is a decent chunk of Continental lager grainy character looking for a place to happen here as well. Whatever, this is an agreeable, um, beer, I suppose - easy to drink, and tasty enough.

Bottle at Chancey Smith. Yeasty aroma, even a bit funky. Above average mouthfeel. Lacey, straw cooured body. Some orange taste, but also somewhat wierd spicey tastes, though including some corriander, with appropriate though fizzy carbonation. Belgian pale style, without the boldness of most Belgians.

1/28...Pours rusted bronze, quite cloudy with fast fizzy white foam. Yeasty malt nose. Wheated. Opens with a slight tart, held in check. Citrus, grapes, grains, fruits. Maybe a touch too high on the carbonation. Tasty though.

Pours a hazy yellow, light gold with orange tints and a thick, pillowy firm thick pure white head.

Nose is super ester assertive with big fresh pear, assertive fresh white bread and just a sweet, floral pleasant character.

Mouthfeel is thin but elegantly carbonated and with a nice balance.

Flavor profile follows the nose. Elegant and refined green herp, green spice, celery/salt and white pepper character. Fruity green pepper front palate that gives way to the herb/salty mid palate and a nice light bitter/salt/herb finish. Nice flavor profile and could almost pass as a fresh, "lighter" Orval.

This is an all around nicely drinkable brew, likely good with most food profiles and with a nice "green" lightly bitter finish.

Bottle: Poured a lightly hazy shiny yellow color ale with a large pure white foamy head with good retention and some very good lacing. Aroma of nice Belgian malt with some floral notes and balanced sweetness. Taste is a nice mix between some refreshing floral malt notes with some light citrusy notes and very well balanced Belgian malt backbone with just enough sweetness. Body is quite full with limited filtration and good carbonation. Very well done and I would love for more brewery to deliver such easily drinkable Belgian pale ale.

Best before 10/16/15.

Pours a murky yellow-orange with a foamy off-white head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of fruit, spice, herb, and alcohol aromas. Taste is much the same with grain, earth, spice, and slight fruit flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer with interesting aromas, but the flavors are somewhat bland to me.

Serving type: bottle.

How about it for Italian beer? Going down the route of a 330 ml capped bottle, on to the beer:

Looks like an unfilered cask ale after its poured from the bottle. The color is unfiltered orangish yellow, with a little patchy head on top. Spots of lace cling to the glass as the beer is consumed. The nose is a little raw and a little "off". A little whiff of hop vines, subtle esters, vague herbalness, and there's some strange plastic ointment that echoes throughout.

Taste doesn't feature much of that annoying plastic note, which is good. Modest herbal and bitter citrus set the table for the pale malt base, which brings honey and bread to the scene. In fact, this shares some similarities with the pale ales of the Pacific Northwest. Despite a "flat" look, the body isn't flat. The carbonation is low, but it does have a soft bite to the lighter-medium body.

In its own terms, Brùton Di Brùton is an acceptable pale ale, but suffers IPS (Italian Pricing Syndrome) in the American market.

750ml bottle.

Pours hazy gold with a dense, white head of white. Wide ropes of lacing and a rocky surface remains after the settling. Looking real sexy sexy.

Green apples, honey, bubblegum, cloves, and a hint of bannana start the nose. Grassy and earthy with a hint of lemon-spritzed wet hay following through.

Light bodied with a crisp, somewhat lush mouthfeel. Softish and cloud-like.

Sweet, biscuity malt and clove-studded apples lead off the palate. A mild bitterness and a drying, almost tannic quality steps forward along with honey-drizzeled biscuit ends.

Finishes with cut grass, a wheaty twang, and lemon-rubbed apples.

Tasty Belgian style pale and very drinkable. Tasting quite fresh but I would have to say the body is a bit thin. The wheaty, slighty tart character and spicy hops walk the line of a Witbier as well.

This beer poured out very similar to the Bianca, it had a cloudy golden yellow color with an impressive head retention. The smell was a little yeasty but has a nice floral balance to it. The taste brought in just a bit of citrus and a bunch of herbal notes in the aftertaste. The hop bitterness is very subtle but shows it's face near the end of each sip. The mouthfeel is light and refreshing. Overall it was a really good beer to have with a meal.

Golden yellow color, but very hazy. White foam, quite good and compact.
Sweet smell, with orange peel and honey over all.
Sweet at the smell too, with again honey and orange peel, but with a better balance, not boring.
Light to average in body, for a "easy" and drinkable beer.
Aftertaste on the sweet side, but again, quite good balance.

750 mL bottle that I found in my fridge, mysteriously. With a best by 02/28/12... Whoops...

A- Hazy golden. The head is all frothy and airy. Whatever it is that Belgian yeast does to the head.

S- Smells like apples and sweet, dry, fruit. Maybe a bit of apricots. Belgian yeast.

T- Apples and white grapes. A mild peppery taste.

M-Light and refreshing

Overall- Solid beer 8 months past date. I'm sure it would be nice fresher, but I can't complain too much as it is.
