An Italian craft beer, coming in a pretty cool looking 75 cl bottle, with an over-sized cap. The label oozes class. Vudu spelt out in dramatic colouring and surrounded in stylish iconography. With a price rang between 11 to 13 € this beer better be good!!

On pour, light brown colour, with a large tan head

Decent head, that maintains, very good lacing, looks good

Very strong smell, very strong but very appealing, can smell lots of flavours, lots of fruits from banana (and lemon), very sweet. Wheaty, toasty malts, very very earthy.

Great on the nose. A very rustic earthy smell with lots of fruits. very appealing…..

First reaction from the taste is that this is a strong beer, very strong, can definitely feel the 6%. Has body and can get the taste all in the back end, the wheat and hops noted. Earthy.

I liked this beer, not very sweet, but bitter, but not overbearing. Dark chocolate/caramel tastes, like a stout, but not quite. Roasted malts and fruit (Banana mostly), creamy undertones

Is a slow burner, definitely one to drink while relaxing in front of the box, or over a meal. In fact it was so full of delicious tastes and very filling that it was like a proper meal!

Loved it. Strongly recommended! Has character, style and taste, is rich in body, and one of the better beers I have had in a long time. Will definitely buy again, no matter the price tag of 11€!..

Poured a brown body with minimal head and lace. The aroma strikes me as sweet with some wheat and bananas and then there's bit of spice like clove and herbal tea. The beer is light but has a fullness to it thanks to a wheat/yeast aspect (which also gives off some sweetness), there is a banana-like sweetness that balances with an herbal dryness and spiciness. Beer is balanced and while not complex is an enjoyable drink that is definite sipper for sure.

Poured a murky, mahogany colour. Smelled sour and malty, with hints of vanilla. Tasted crisper than expected, a little malty, mellow tartness, and a warm-ish grain-malt finish; Hops throughout, but not detected flavourwise, but the hops gave it a dryer mouthfeel.

part of me just stands in awe at italian beer in general right now, but who would think they would take a german, yes german classic to the next level, at least the same level, by making it as good if not better than many traditional ones, without really changing a thing. cool and special beer, but also one of those styles you love, but never really expect to be wowed by. this looks every bit the part, smells like it should, and tastes like something andeschs or weihenstephaner would make. truly, no lie. its almost more wheaty, less caramelized, maybe a short boil and a higher to complete wheat bill, textured beautifully and with a yeast strain the tips its cap to the germans but has an italian delicacy and earthiness the germans have not yet showed me. nearly impossible to describe this compared to the best german examples without tasting it, all of the same things, just stacked up slightly differently. really really enjoyed this glass of beer, and look forward to my next, i would take this over that insane black currant beer these guys did awhile back, my only other reference point for this brewery.

On tap at Alla Spina.

Served in a teku, a murky brown color with a lively puff of off-white head that bubbled up over the lip of the glass; good retention and lacing. In the nose, toasty malts, spice, roasty nuttiness. In the taste, nutty malts, brown sugar, notes of cinnamon and clove, earthy raw cocoa, yeast leaning towards dried banana. Good mouthfeel, medium body, overall good for the style.

appearance: very nicely dark for a Italian brew not bad

smell: Nice sweet tang to it. A real pleasure actually.

taste: Nice edge can't say its bad but a bit too much hoppy bight for the type

mouthfeel: Bit weak a bit disappointing cause the flavor isn't that bad

overall: If you have to drink a beer in Italy drink this one

Pour is a dark brown with orangish edges and tight tan head. The nose is very nice, strong yeast and fruit sweetness. Peppery spice and twang up front, light dustiness transitions to banana and berries as a fruit balance is struck. The taste is a hint short, yeast is more subtle and the spice is much less, fruits are less bright and more sugary with a dustier earthy presence mid palate. Body is light and soft with a low carbonation and clean finish.

A: Dark, hazy brown , a lot of lightly tanned and creamy head, good head retention, little lacing;

S: Very fresh, yeasty, fruit and a tiny bit of toasted malts, especially chocolate-like aromas, the fruitiness mainly consists of banana, hints of caramel;

T: Hits the palate with a sweet and slightly sour flavour while having this tiny bit of chocolate in it, hops are really just a tiny tiny bit in the backround on the finish, little bit of caramel, rather on the malty side yet not overly sweet, pretty good balance between all the components although slightly stronger fruit and/or chocolate would be interesting. The aftertaste is fruity and chocolatey;

M: Very thick and creamy, high carbonation;

O: Really good brew, balanced flavour profile although some flavours could be stronger!
