New Morning

New Morning is a "strong beer with spices" produced by Birrificio Del Ducato Gruppo Italy in Roncole Verdi di Busseto, Italy. It clocks in at healthy 5.8% alcohol and comes in a very cool looking 330mL bottle. It pours a cloudy orange-gold colour with some slight sediment in the bottom. New Morning has frothy cappuccino foam for a head. It has a malty, spicy aroma with notes of orange peel. There is a lot going on, flavour-wise. New Morning is replete with spices. There are some sweet elements and some bitter ones, along with a slight tinge of citrus.

Most of the Italian beers that I have tried have been pretty unadventurous, but this is a very interesting little brew out of Italia. The brewery website says that the beer is inspired by a Belgian saison.  It does taste a lot like a saison, though not nearly as dry as many that I've tried before.

Rating: 8.0 out of 10.
