Birrificio Cassissona 750ml:

Yet another fine beer coming Italy. There seem to be more and more Italians worth hunting down and this is one of them. This fruit beer is subtle and sublime. Not the heavy handed fruit beers we see made in this country. Even though I am a big black current fan and never shy away from drinking pure fermented current juice the token level of fruit in this beer works very well. It pours dusty yellow with a bit of a blush red. Its aroma is malty with a mineral/citrusy tone. The flavor is lightly sweet with a hint of spiciness and the fruit just peaks through to add an extra layer of flavor.
