Vertere Palmeri : Appearance

Dark golden brown colour with a large frothy slightly off-white head on top that left some sticky lacing down the edge of the glass.

Vertere Palmeri : Aroma

Not great to be honest. I like my double IPAs dank or citrus, maybe tropical as well, but this was lacking in all three departments. Instead, it had a diacetyl nose to it – something I don’t like at all in my IPAs. I was really surprised to note this aroma over anything else – had the beer been infected during canning? As the beer warmed up, there was some note of decent hop aroma cutting through the butteriness of the beer.

Vertere Palmeri : Taste

As in the nose, there was a peculiar buttery flavour to this beer and one that I didn’t really like. I don’t know if it was deliberate or not but it was a struggle to finish this beer – I had paid over ¥1,200 for this so you can be bloody sure I am not going to pour it down the drain. There was a touch of citrus and tropical flavour to the beer, but it was hard to actually pick out the specific flavours with the butteriness in the beer,

Vertere Palmeri : The Bottom Line

Vertere Palmeri is a big miss from me – perhaps it was a dodgy batch or something had gone wrong with it.
