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

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.

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.

redlight (2317) - Orlando, Florida, USA - AUG 7, 2011
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.

Marheb (2297) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 16, 2012
Vineux avec un support surette en accord avec les sucres des malts. Des notes de cerises et de chêne composent le corps, la finale est plutôt discrète. Agréable avec une montagne de crabes des neiges.

Draft at Churchkey. Cloudy dark apricot pour with a big bold dense white head. Nice spritzy wine nose with hints of plum and grape. Flavor bring further light funk with vinous sweetness. Definitely drinkable for the ABV. Quite nice!!

shoulderbroken (2179) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JAN 7, 2014
Tap at Moeder Lambic Fontainas. Amber colour with touch of red. Big, bubbly shiny off white head. Aroma is light raspberry, bit of creaminess, herbal. Taste has similar light fruitiness, bit of funkiness and a touch of sourness. It’s nice enough, but it’s nowhere near as nice as the Belgian equivalents. Too much booze and too little funk.

Vignale (2174) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 30, 2014
Drucken på fat på Bishop Gustav. Sötsyrligbesk i riktigt bra balans. Fruktig och bärig med viss sötma, jordgubbar, hallon och söta druvor/russin, citrussyrlig och snäll vinägersyra, avslutas med påtaglig citruszestbeska. Riktigt gott.

Lowenbrau (2145) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - DEC 18, 2013
330ml bottle. Courtesy of 2D2Dspuma. Pours hazy amber-reddish, with off white head. Some head retention and lacing. Light body, crispy texture, high carbonation. Taste is fruity, some grapy, astrigent notes, some caramel. Well balanced and enjoyable.
