4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
375 ml 2012, teku Pours a minimal frothy off white head, beautiful, and slightly cloudy, ruby colour. Smells very red fruity, piemonte wine grapes, noble woods, basement, wild bacteria; outstanding aroma. Tastes again very fruity, grape cherry raspberry, dried fruits, with an awesome winey and wooded finish, grapes tartness. Perfect amount of sweetness, followed by a lively but never overdone beautiful sour note. Less than medium, quite light, consistency body, which gives this brew a great drinkability, nice soft amount of carbonation. Described in 3 words, this beer is fruit, wine and wood. Much better than many "typical" spontaneous fermentation Belgian beers I’ve tried. Oustanding product

A bit hazy reddish/brown with a small head. Aroma of funk, grapes, wood and vinegar. Similar taste, also some berries. Dry and vinous. Tried 2012 and 2013 and the taste is a little bit more mellow and more well balanced as it has aged.

Bottle brewed in 2011. Poured into snifter. Pours a clear reddish color with a thin white head. Aroma - tart grape notes (definitely barbera), sour, some funk. Taste - sour fruit notes, lots of farmyard funk. Mouthfeel is a bit thin. The fruit notes are grape, cherry and maybe some raspberry. The Italian beer scene has come very far in such a short span of time. This is really a good beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample at Mikkeller bar. pours hazy light pink somewhat clearish. Notes are ultra funky grapes, lactic acid, and a weird peanut yeast suspension type note or maybe it’s roasty malt which wouldn’t make much sense. Too much of a bite for me in the finish and residually In the chest.
