Brought this 750 ml bottle home after purchasing it at the San Biagio brewery in Nocera Umbria, Italy in May, 2011. Corked and caged.

Bottle was refrigerated at 48 F, opened with a good pop but no gushing. Poured this carefully into a Tripel Karmeliet tulip glass, but even so, the head mushroomed and even kept growing in the glass until it reached 5 fingers high. A wild beast. Body is a hazy gold. Eventually settled down to a drinkable head, leaving lots of lacing in the glass.

Has an appealing nose, with apple fruit, clove/coriander spice and sweet butterscotch.

Tastes delightfully spicy, with some apple tartness. More coriander than clove spice. A nice butterscotch/toffee sweetness as well that balances the tartness.

Body is light and the carbonation is fizzy. The first pour had a creamy mouthfeel, the second pour more fizzy. With the second pour, I was able to avoid the voluminous head as in the first pour. Best to let sit in the bottle for a few minutes after opening.

Overall, this is a very decent weizen, fairly light in body and flavorful. I don't know what kind of yeast was used, but I thought it had a Belgian golden yeast character with some nice fruity esters and spice.
