COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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).

fiulijn (14551) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 30, 2013
Courtesy of Jan (fonefan), parallel with Terre
Amber color. Very nice aroma, luscious, malt, wood, some bourbon, light tobacco; more elegant than the aroma of Terre. Strong body, round mouthfeel; sweet but not syrupy; good malt flavor, with light fruity accent, raisins and quite evident alcohol; there is more oak and vanilla character than wine character.
Very good, but a bit rough.

yngwie (13558) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 14, 2012
Bottle, at Patricks. A headless one, orange-golden in color, quite oily pour. Dried apricots, some orange, a touch of cellar and some vanilla. Almost rubbey. It’s very oily, full bodied and quite low on carbonation. Pleasant bitterness. Vanilla, peaches, citrus and sweetness in the flavor. Alcohol too. Lasting finish with warmth, bitterness and some sweerness. And orange. Certainly a nice one. 120614
