Saponetta Valobra (Print)


The aroma is soft, with hints of pepper, cracked wheat and malt powder, as well as notes of fruit juice and caramel. It grows both yeastier and more metallic as the beer warms. As its carbonation comes into contact with the palate, the beer exhibits a medium body and smooth, creamy mouthfeel. A well-placed candy sweetness dominates, as smooth caramel plays off bold fruitiness, with suggestions of fresh orange and peach. Complex spices – pepper, anise – highlight the alcohol and cause a prickliness on the palate. Eventually, an interesting smokiness emerges to balance the rest. Near the finish, there's a light, wheaty tang and an increasing dryness, which meshes with hints of peach skin. It ends dry, with a coarser, faintly nutty yeastiness. Bitterness and hop flavors are minimal, marked only by a thin citric edge and a soft leafy feel.

Extremely pale straw yellow beer, a touch hazy, with a soda-like appearance. Candied ginger aroma, spicy and herbal, with suggestions of cardamom and lilacs. Thin and crisp in the mouth, with some unpleasant tannins up front. Compared to the aroma, the ginger character is very tame in the flavor, while a lemony bitterness puckers things up just a bit. Light pale malt sweetness, while the wildflower honey used is well-attenuated, leaving behind a pleasing floral note and slight remnants of raw honey. Hints of cardamom, with a lingering raw and semi-astringent pith, husky and wheat-like character in the finish. The tannins throughout the beer, especially in the finish, took a lot away from allowing the subtleties of the brew to shine. Interesting, but not refreshing or overly drinkable.
