Fermented and maturated in oak vats. No adding yeast. Spontaneous fermentation because of adding freshly pressed Barbera grapes juice that contains the skins, directly from a viticulturist near Alba. Brewed once a year at vintage time obviously. Available in 375 ml or 750 ml bottles.

Turtles (1784) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 19, 2015
375ml bottle from Systembolaget, vintage 2014. Almost clear, dark amber, fizzy head that disappears in 3 seconds. Tart aroma, oak, red grapes and citrus. Low carbonated, dry and light mouthfeel. The taste is complex, oak, tart cherries, currants, raspberries, farmyard funk. Highly drikable.

On tap at bittercreek Boise. Pours out a reddish brown with a small head. Nose is great cherries raspberries wood tart sour and grape. Taste is more of the nice fruit mix along with a very nice pucker tartness. Wow this was quite nice.

Bottled (backlog). Pretty much red colour with a small head. Aroma is sour wood, red berries, some yeast and mild toffeeish notes to it. Flavour is very similar, ending in a rather big mouthdrying way. Tasty and quite complex.

Flaska systembolaget. Djup rödlila vätska med doft av druva, sura körsbär och fuktig jordkällare. Härligt småtorr och sträv munkänsla med funkig smak. Syrliga bär och stall

On tap at the Wildeman in Amsterdam and a week later in Bottle. Both times this pours a nice red colour. Has the same aromas as a good Oude Kriek and tastes amazing. Has some tartness and funkiness but very in balance. This combination of wine and beer seems to get the best of both worlds. Probably the best beer I have drunk this year.
