Bionda - This is an unpasteurized ale that is 6.0% ABV. The beer pours a honey yellow golden in color with a half-inch of vibrant, foamy, fizzy white head that leaves heavy lacing down the glass. The aroma is grain and flowers, with a champagne note. The taste is lighter, more delicate than expected, malt, floral, yeast. There is a slight bitterness at the end, and a grainy creaminess in the mouthfeel, probably from all the fine carbonation. An interesting beer!
Chiara - This unpasteurized ale is also 6.0% ABV. The beer pours a pale yellow golden, lightly hazy and very fizzy with a half inch of bubbling, foaming white head that leaves fairly thick lacing. The aroma is crusty bread, lightly floral, yeast, a tart note like sourdough bread. The taste is bready and yeasty, without the yeast being overbearing, fruity. It has a lingering aftertaste that is true to the flavor. Complex, but very drinkable.
Ambrata - This is an unpasteurized amber ale that is 7.5% ABV. The beer pours a bright amber to burnt orange in color. There is a quarter inch of very light brown head. There is very ample carbonation. The aroma is airily malty, some yeast, fruity in the way of a buttery, oaky chardonnay. The taste is slightly sweet, fruity, raisins, yeast, with a dry finish.
