BIRRA DEL BORGO INBRANATA

Birra del Borgo Inbranata. Italian beer… not something I dabble in often. The missus picked this up for me as I hadn’t tried it before. The label looks like it was created using WordArt in Microsoft Word. It’s a strong saison that’s 6.4% ABV and a mild 21 IBU.

Golden yellow colour, a fair bit of chunky yeast with a head that dissipates relatively quickly. Sweet Belgian yeast-like aroma. Mild sweet malt flavour with trademark saison flavours of bubblegum and spice with a dry and acidic finish. The crisp and dry finish make it quite refreshing and the alcohol is well hidden with no boozy flavours.

The reviews on this beer seem to be very mixed. I don’t think it travels well and freshness / handling can greatly effect how it tastes. Saisons and Italian beers aren’t my first pick but I enjoyed this beer a lot more than I thought I would.

 

7/10
