Prodotto ad Alta Fermentazione. Birra prodotta con l’aggiunta di mosto d’uva Freisa in fermentazione. "Birra complessa, di grande finezza ed eleganza, in cui sorprendentemente convivono tre anime, quella fruttata con sentori che ricordano la fragola, il lampone ed il ribes rosso, quella acidula-citrica con lievi aspre note di limone e quella, più ostica, caratterizzata da off flavors tutti da scoprire. Nonostante la presenza di nette punte di astringenza, una piacevole sensazione di "warming" ci accompagna dopo ogni sorsata." - Lorenzo Dabove in arte Kuaska

dreadnord (1013) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 22, 2012
Pours dark copper with some brown hues and a small off white head. Nose is ginger, orange, brown sugar and light lemon. Taste is sweet with a tart presence midway through combing with bitter for a balanced finish. Mouthfeel is crisp and clean. Medium body with a long aftertaste. This guy is a visionary on the Italian beer front and as the only one doing primarily sours, he’s killing it.

JanLaursen (3159) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 7, 2012
Bottle, 75 cl. Vintage 2011. A murky orange-brown with virtually no head. Extremely overcarbonated - the beer explodes when I open it and only about a third is saved. Not good. Aroma is fruity with apple notes and a bretty edge. Taste is sweet fruity with sweet berryish fruit and a subdued tart note. Finish is, as the beer itself, subtle and elegant. Only a whiff of hops. Medium body. This beer makes me feel like an idiot - paying about 18 € for about 25-30 cl of remaining beer (after opening). I’ll go for a Rodenbach Grand Cru any day.

phaleslu (6607) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 6, 2012
330 ml bottle shared by STLWill- thanks again, Will! 2011 vintage. Pours a clear reddish-brown with a small off-white head. Aroma of berries, apples, plums, candy, and sweet malts- tart and acidic. Same for the flavor, which hits the same berry and tart fruity notes. Light-medium bodied, with a fruity, tart, acidic mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

yngwie (13693) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 2, 2012
Bottle, at Olympen. It pours an almost clear, copper colored body, topped by a medium sized off-white head. The aroma is lightly vinegarish, with some dried fruits, berries and a hint of alcohol. Flavorwise, the dried fruits dominates, but there’s also a touch of vinegar and a faint caramel notes. Berries too. More or less full bodied, slightly tart on the palate. A decent amount of vinegar in the end. Overall, a bit on the vinegar side I think, but a nice beer anyway. 111015

sebletitje (6777) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAY 9, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 17, 2013 Rerate: Cask @ ML Fontainas. Quel delice, rien que l’arome est tenace avec ce buauet prodonf de raisin fermente, de mout de vin. Palais sublime, epais avce un profil farineux, terreux mettant a l’honnneur ce profile de fruite - raisin fermente. Le tout oscille sur le fruite rouge. Le palais ets suret modere avec un penchant sur un leger sucre venant du fruite. Le tout ne fait pas justice a cette biere, mais cette biere, et cette revisite ma franchement impressionne.

Bottle at "30 år av surt", on May 5, 2012 in Göteborg. BB 12/2013. Cuivrée, col léger beige. Arôme fruité, aigreur sur une pointe de sucre caramel brûlé et un bouquet minime houblonné. En bouche, fruité, léger sucré au palais sur fine aigreur, pétillant et vivante avec une pointe de noisette. Pas mauvaise, mais manque juste cette petite pointe belge qui en fait une bière ’sour’ plus spéciale. En l’état, reste très appréciable. Bouteille peut-être trop jeune. 7-3-7-3-15
