From notes taken 04/30/17:

Dark but dull opaque yellow, similar to but more haze than your average Hefe. And plenty of yeasty dregs on the bottom. Light lemon-white head of fizzy froth, leaving walls and then berms of lace wherever it swirls. Good retention and keeps a filmy layer for the duration. In bottle, smells like sagebrush, in glass like ginger, banana pudding, yogurt, lemon or orange zest, faintly spicy yeast, approaching pumpkin spice even. Palate is basically a gingerbread — with extra ginger — spice Hefeweizen. Floral and spicy, might even detect the earthiness of green peppers. Coriander is subtle and could be mistaken for anything else in this. Heavy on the banana for what it is, moderate on the doughy wheat and yeast notes but it’s a wonderful balance. Not as close to your average Saison in terms of spiciness or appearance. Lower end of medium in body, creamy, with abundant and fine but loose sudsy carbonation. Flattens fast.

Cloudy yellow, big white head.
Strong and spicy. Coriander finish is interesting. Paired with Mafaldini pasta in Pork Ragu.

Bottle picked up back east. Lots of aroma, flowery, buttery, savory herbs. Taste is more subdued, flowers, abrupt finish. Light body, medium airy head.

Italy definitely has a unique approach to brewing and flavor combinations; very culinary and almost always interesting, unique. This is no exception. Beautiful hazy yellow pour with an abundant creamy head that lingers. The nose has a bisquity backdrop, a rich mix of grains, on top of which a musty but piquant spice hovers ... I wouldn't have called out ginger or green pepper without knowing, but they make sense when I think about the overall impression. Body is light but creamy. A truly delicious beer.
