PICUS - Italian Weiss
PICUS is an Italian Weiss, that is to say a wheat beer reinterpreted through local produce. Its raw wheat is in fact the long-spiked Gentil Rosso, from "Il Gentil Verde" farm. Local is also the name, since PICUS is the Latin word for “woodpecker”, which is Marche's icon. PICUS presents itself in a bright and opalescent straw-yellow colour, with a rich, solid and persistent foam.
To the nose is firstly evident the fruity note, typical of weiss beers, mostly with banana smell and a balsamic hint from its peculiar hop. Freshness and a mineral note are distinctive of this beer, also noticeable to the mouth. PICUS, refreshing and thirst-quenching, with its creamy and discreet perlage, its light and elegant bitter, is a balanced and easy to drink beer.
