Lune: la birra che Teo ha dedicato ai grandi vini bianchi. Messa a maturare nelle botti di Cantina Baladin che hanno ospitato questi blasonati frutti di vigneti italiani è prodotta con orzo e farro completamente italiani. Si diversifica, pur nel contesto della stessa produzione, grazie al differente apporto aromatico dato dalle botti stesse, rilasciato proprio dai vini che prima vi albergavano.

Blended version of Lune. Barley Wine aged in white wine barrel. Limited (brewed once).

LoFi (1637) - Göteborg, - JAN 25, 2013
Bottle. Copper, looks a bit like cognac, not completely clear, minimal white head that disappears instantly. Aroma: vinous, fruity, mandelmassa, floral, a hint of solvent. Taste: honey, mead, wood, chocolate coated marzipan - in fact like something from Anton Berg, red berries, grapes. Full bodied, still. Different and tasty.

Probably the most expensive beer I’ve had to date...shared by Nick at the Pig in Boca. Small snifters. Pours an orange-brown with decent transparency. No head or lacing. Aroma is nutty, bourbon barrel, port wine, butter, and breakfast roll. The taste is good with a nice bourbon barrel, nuttiness, port wine sweetness, and slight buttery finish. Absolutely no carb which I missed. Slight papery taste (oxidation maybe?) Rather boozy finish. Overall good.

2012 version On tap at Baladin, aged in white wine barrels. This 11.5% barleywine pours a mellow orange gold with s nutty honey maple aroma full bodied silky mouthfeel. The taste is sweet heavenly honey maple with an astringent wine like finish.   This is a wonderful beer.

Pours hazy peach with no head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, vanilla, bourbon barrels. Taste is super sweet, caramel and fruit. Body is a tad light for the sweetness, flat carbonation.

Very odd beer, had this as dessert wine.. Worked .. And that says a lot, sweet, sweet driink, hazy almost no top. Drank it small wine glasses ice cold on a hot summers day. First glass was amazing so unlike a beer, but yet a beer. Try it, not much like it

Zekada (357) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - AUG 18, 2014
Bottle from systembolaget. Strong aroma of white wine, cherries, citrus, fruits and some alcohol. Pours caramel with no head and no carbonic. Despite the high ABV it is very smooth. Tatse has white wine, apples and pears and is sweet like lemonade. Palate is very smooth, simple and drinkable. Overall a beer which reminds more of wine than a beer, but it is surprisingly good.

sebletitje (7028) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAY 14, 2014
5cl bottle sample @ Baladin Milano. Couleur ambrée-cuivrée, sans col et laissant un beau filament doré au verre. Arôme est agréable oscillant sur le toffee et une pointe de barrique entre balsamique et Madère. Palais est malté grillé sur un léger sucré caramélisé. Ici encore une note de Madère avec un petit côté vin blanc de barrique mais qui arrive en toute fin de bouche. Se boit comme une liqueur avec un alcool agréable. Pas mauvais, mais pas le meilleur des Riserva Teo Musso.

_angst_ (3214) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 13, 2014
Bottle bought @ Systembolaget. Pours hazy caramel brown with a very small bubbly goldenish beige head that quickly dissipates without leaving any trace on the glass. Smell is sweet and heavy malty with caramel, toffee, high quality sweet white wine, vanilla fudge, charred wood, hay, leather, sweet dark bread, dark honey, alcohol, sherry, raisins, prunes, dates and biscuits. Taste is sweet, malty and fruity with caramel, toffee, heavy raisins, sherry, dates, sweet dark bread, golden syrup, hay, sweet white wine, vanilla hard candy, butterscotch hard candy, alcohol, banana bread with chocolate chips, leather and eiswein. Mouthfeel is round, slightly sticky sweet, flat and medium to full bodied. Finish is sweet, tiny bitter, tiny sour and malty with caramel, toffee, leather, raisins, sherry, sweet Riesling, eiswein, hay, prunes, dates, alcohol, vanilla fudge, butterscotch hard candy and hints of banana bread, diesel fuel and chocolate chip cookies. Incredibly complex and interesting vinous barley wine. A little carbonation and a richer palate and this would be close to perfect.
