Un giovane Chianti seduce con la sua forza una Duchessa, lei lo ammalia con l’eleganza ed insieme vanno poi a sposarsi, con un corredo al 50% mosto di vino e 50% mosto di birra in un fermento unico, creando un’alchimia indimenticabile. L’unione prosegue in bottiglia con l’aggiunta del liqueur de tirage che li rende spumeggianti. Dimorano in bottiglia insieme ai loro piccoli lieviti, che doneranno fragranza al loro matrimonio. Invecchiano insieme e poi il mago Birraio dona loro nuova vita con il rito magico della sboccatura, aggiungendo la pozione, il liqueur d’expedition, come da antica ricetta tramandata di generazione in generazione. Rarissima prima edizione rilasciata in quantitativi estremamente limitatati dal Birrificio Del Borgo, prodotta con mosto fiore di Montepulciano e metodo Champenoise. Un gioco di equilibri tra vino e birra senza paragoni. Un articolo assolutamente da collezionare.

Brewed with 39% of Sangiovese wine wort, fermented with wine yeast and refermented with champagne yeast.
Produced at Azienda Agricola Tenuta di Bibbiano.

L’equilibrista plays at the edge between champagne and beer. Amazing the fine bubble with a little sour beer finish. Nit for everybody, but definitely pushing beer boundaries

Pours sunset orange with a small fizz ring. Smells tart and lightly fruity. Taste is strongly of grape and hints of funk. Light-bodied with a smooth, wet texture and average mouth-carbonation, Birra del Borgo L’Equilibrista finishes with a lingering grape/wine tartness.

Marko (4855) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 2, 2016
2013 edition. Craft Beer Festival in Zagreb. Really thrilled to have tried it. Murky red body with a small white head. Sourish funky grape aroma. Pearly carbonation, the champagne influence being obvious.The taste gets perfumey fruitiness, somewhat neutral with light acidity and a lasting tart aftertaste. Pleasant and a bit of a grower, but I must admit I’ve expected more.
