COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Leo, Teo e Sam sono andati alla ricerca dell’origine della birra, ricreando un’audace ricetta ispirata alle antiche bevande fermentate. Usando ingredienti comuni sulla base dei ritrovamenti archeologici ogni birrificio ha scelto un metodo di fermentazione diverso. A Borgorose, l’Etrusca, l’abbiamo fatta riposare in grandi anfore di terracotta, come quelle ritrovate negli antichi siti etruschi

Using ingredients found on archeological sites (different cereals, hazelnuts, raisins, pomegranate, resins, honey), this project is supervised by Patrick McGovern (university of Pennsylvania).
At Del Borgo the beer is fermenting in clay amphorae.

Benzai (14076) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - SEP 25, 2016
Sampled @ Borefts Beer Festival 2016, Day 1. Hazy yellow color, small to average sized white head. Smell and taste both have a tartness, weird plant-like touch to it which I dislike. Weird stuff, reminds me of flowers on the one hand and sweet potatoes on the other hand. Meh, don’t like it. Weird.
