COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

Malty sweetness on the nose. Pours a reddish amber with a thin white head that dissipates. Very vinous, you can definitely taste grape skins, currants, tart wild strawberries and sour cherries with nice crisp tartness, floral sweetness. Very nice sour ale, the grape juice adds a berry fruitiness that soured nicely.

On tap @ Ebenezer’s Pub. Clear amber/copper with no head and little lacing. Aroma of red fruits, grapes, light caramel and light acetic notes. Taste is slightly to moderately sweet with red fruits, light grapes, light caramel and light sourness. Medium body. Slightly dry. Average to good Sour, but very mild. Good balance.

Bought on Nate’s recommendation. Lovely currant, raspberry and soft tart nose. Not much going on body wise and the flavour is very light - some wood, red fruits, grape juice and of course wild yeasty yeast. Not a big beer - though the finish has something to say. Gets quite sweet as it warms too. 2011 bottle - consumed too young? Not as big as I expected and certainly some way off say, Russian River.

Holmen1 (2003) - Stavanger, NORWAY - OCT 28, 2012
Fra flaske på Cardinaltreff mai-12 (italiens salatbar): iflg Asle Bjørn"inch thick tan colored fizzy head on a clear orange body. Brettannomyces, fruits, berries and cherries on the nose. More berries and fruits in the mouth along with malts and a light bitterness. Medium body. Astringent with a dry tongue." Sansynligvis i syrligste laget for meg, men kanskje prøve den en annen gang?

For the sake of conversation just the ratings. Can’t help but I just hate smartphones.

teorn88 (1916) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2012
33cl bottle. 2010 vintage. Pours a deep ruby color with a big off-white head. Super-quickly vanishing foam, almost like a soda. Nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is vinegarish and fruity. Strawberries, red berries, balsamic vinegar and lemon zest. Taste is similar but more balanced on the the warming malty notes. Red grapes, red wine, vinegar, alcohol and oak. Quite warming and the alcohol is there. Medium bodied with nice carbonation. Overall, definitely interesting and tasty. Maybe a tad too high in ABV.

Bottle, october 20th 2012. Cloudy pale red body, low offwhite head. Aroma of cherries, caramel, leather, citrus fruits. Taste of malt, strawberries, vinegar, sugar. Dry mouthfeel, acidic and fruity aftertaste.
