32 CURMI

32 Curmi. I've been eyeing the 32 range off everytime I walk past a certain bar in my home town in Italy, but I've been put off it because I've usually had a fridge full of interesting.

Well, that and the 32s are in the 13-15 euro range. That's more or less a crate full of Bavarian lagers, pilsners or dunkels. Or a mixed 20.

This is a Belgian White beer, made entirely in Italy from Italian barley, wheat and spelt. 

32's site claims it has floral tones and exotic hints, but the one I had seemed to be served too cold for much of that to come out of it. 

It has a nice head, initially at least, but the bottle-conditioned beer soon gives way to a flat-looking feel deeper in the glass.

It tastes a bit that way, too. Its mouthfeel is disappointingly bland, but you can imagine it will go well with white meats. 

There are hints of lemon in the flavour of it, but by and large it's filled with subtle wheat undertones and it pads that out with traces of things like coriander and apples. 

You could happily have a few of them, as a pure beer, but the problem is that it isn't the best beer you can buy at this price. It isn't even the best 20 beers you can buy for 15 euros. 

As a beer, it works. As a bottle sitting amongst way cheaper beer chicken mainstream beers, it doesn't do enough to convince you that it's worth three or four Heinekens.
