Pour on Draft at Churchkey, hazy yellow-orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of big wine, grape juice, hints of orange zest, touch of booze in there, some oaky tones, apple notes come through as well. Taste is a mix of earth, bread, hints of grappa, wine, and grape notes with a slight boozy note, slight oak, finishing barrel forward, slightly boozy, oaky and dry.

Che c’entra č sicuramente un bel bere, ma tutti questi esperimenti che il buon birrificio sta tirando fuori, non mi convincono molto.

Bottle. Golden color, tiny floaties. Dominant grappa aroma, citrus. Malty sweet flavor with grapes and grassy, velvety mouthfeel. Alcohol present but well hidden. Love it.

75cl bottle @ Kulminator
Nose is apples, alcohol, grassy, grapes.
Pours gold with a nice white head, a bit hazy.
Sweet taste, bread, cereal, apples.
A bit of a dusty finish, but that could be because I got the bottom of the bottle.

Draft at ChurchKey in Washington DC. Cloudy gilden color, fluffy white head. Aroma of boozy vanilla, straw. Taste is fruity, boozy, citrus. One if the few beers I’ve seen in grappa barrels, Toccalmatto is the other that comes to mind. This one works well enough.
