Blend of Krisopolis (a new beer, that will be available in the future, fermented in barrels for 2 years, then Morello cherries are added to it), with a part of Ultima Luna (Barley Wine matured in Amarone barrels, with Marasca Morello cherries) and a part of young beer.

First brewed in 2009 and bottled in 2011.

Grado: imperscrutabile. Gusto: incredibile. Versata tutta in un bel calice Teku non lascia nessuno scampo alle papille gustative. Verdetto unanime: paradisiaca. Beverina, fruttata, amabilmente acida, sensuale. Se avessi una spina in salotto, vorrei poter attaccare la Luna Rossa. Ogni italiano amante della birra dovrebbe essere fiero di questo prodotto e, senza perdere un’istante, dovrebbe assaggiarlo.

lusikka (6343) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 29, 2013
330 ml bottle. 2010 vintage.
Pours a dark murky amber colour without a head. Aroma is very tart with dark cherries, wood and balsamic vinegar. Huge depth. Flavour ensues; dark cherries, pear, orange juice, more balsamic vinegar, sweet plums, rather strong earthiness and leather. Medium bodied, low carbonation and a dry but very juicy, tart, cherry finish. Alcohol is well hidden. Complexity at it’s best.

burg326 (3764) - Florida, USA - NOV 3, 2013
Poured a amber reddish color froth bottle bought at the Brass Tap, aromas of light fruit, oak, yeast and a touch of funk. Flavors are the same vinous wood, and some tart dark fruit, decent beer overall but not the best sour I’ve had.
