beer. " -- Beverage Tasting Institute Silver Medal

Tenute CollesiImper Ale Rossa "Red"...$8.99 / pint
Deep hazy copper color. Aromas of toffee and honeyed figs with a frothy dry-yet-fruity medium body and a smooth peach cobbler, apple, wafer, and leafy greens accented finish. Will work great at the table with roasted meats." -- Beverage Tasting Institute Gold Medal

Tenute CollesiImper Ale Nera "Black" Stout...$8.99 / pint
"Cloudy medium brown color with tan head. Creamy milk chocolate and honeyed pistachio nougat aromas with a round, dryish medium body and a lingering tangy currant toast and cocoa finish." -- Beverage Tasting Institute Silver Medal

Tenute Collesi Imper Ale Triplo Malto "Triple Malt"
"Blond unpasteurized top-fermented. Natural fermentation in the bottle creates a dense and lasting head with a very fine texture. A finely balanced flavour, well structured and harmonious, with fragrant aromas and hints of freshly picked yellow fruits. Very intense in the mouth, with traces of peach and apricot that persist pleasantly on the palate." - label
