Finger plus of off-white to yellowish foam, loose and airy, immediately starts forming peaks and valleys, even the lacing looks whipped up and delicate but can at times stick well. Hazy yellow rust water look to the liquid, more translucent than full-on cloudy, scattered larger bubbles pop up out of nowhere and rush to the surface. In the nose even the dank herbal matter smells fresh and flirty, toasted rolls, pine sap and juicy tangerine, tangelo citrus fruit scents, the apricot, mango, green melon to green grape element soft and avoids extreme sweetness and tartness. Medium-bodied and drier than expected, coats the tongue and quickly numbs. This plays up the scone, bread crust to pine cone/needle and minerally earth qualities. At times shows a touch of quinine to mineral water. More dry pith character to the navel orange, white grapefruit citrus, there was more pop in the nose citrus-wise. The peach, apricot, papaya, melon fruit appears mute, enunciates the loudest through the finish. Balanced and arguably too integrated in that each constitutive part has little opportunity to shine. But drinks smoothly and if the dryness doesn’t bother you it’s borderline sessionable.

L: nice semi hazy, well hydrated piss yellow
S: best attribute, by far. fruit and hops in nice balance
T: maybe it's just not what I'm appreciating right now, but it's bitterness seems to grow with each sip overpowering the fruit eventually. Not the kind of beer I can imagine having another of in the same day (or week). If it was one of several in a blind test I'm sure it would be just one of the pack, for me.
F: light/medium
O: there are a lot of nice beers out there, some more and some less expensive, tastier than Santilli, no point bothering with this one again.

Pours a semi turbid copper to peach color with a thin white head. Nose is bready with citrus and melon. Taste of pale malts and bread. Malty notes fade to hops. Citrus, mangoes and melon. Hoppy bitter kick towards the back end of this one. Hoppier as it warms. Light floral in there as well. Medium body with a hoppy slightly bitter kick to finish.
