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

visionthing (2739) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 17, 2012
33cl bottle shared by Arve_Christian - thanks! Pours hazy amber with a small off-white head. Aroma of basement, fruits and yeast with hints of berries and spices. Medium body and lively carbonation. Lightly sweet and fruity with a dry and somewhat bitter finish. Quite strange, but refreshing. (2012-09-15)

Shag (2603) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - AUG 29, 2012
Amber color with no head. Aroma is tart cherries, apples, and vinegar. Flavor is sour with more cherries and vinegar. Not as sour as your typical lambic but still sour. Overall good beer.

Defreni (2601) - Husum, DENMARK - MAR 26, 2013
Fad: Rødlig let diset øl med et fint lille skumhoved. Duften er kirsebær med en kende acetisk syre. Desværre lever smagen ikke helt op til duften, da den klart mangler pondus i forhold til de høje procenter.

Damico (2579) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 24, 2011
The beer pours clear amber with a very light head. The aroma is light fruitiness and clean sour notes, but not overpowering or pungent. The flavor or juicy grapes come in clear, not on a thick but bubbly body that goes down so smooth. Not puckering or tart, but clean sour notes on the flavor to the end.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - SEP 2, 2012
Brewed with Freisa grape must. Weird, right? The nose is full of fruits, especially musty grapes and berries (mostly cherry, with skins and pits). More sweet than tart, and nicely dry. On the subtle side for a sour.

Holmen1 (2467) - 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?

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.

Bottle at Blue Monk - big thanks to Mike! Nose is cidery vinegar, wood, berries. Flavor follows with cidery vinegar, some cherry maltines, wood/tannins. A bit of juicy fruit comes out in the finish.

jonno (2335) - JAPAN - JUN 29, 2012
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.
