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

Damico (2694) - 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.

Meravigliosa creazione di Walter, molto complessa, elegante ma davvero unica.

Sigmund (5328) - Tau, NORWAY - OCT 8, 2011
330 ml bottle, vintage 2010, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 8.0%. Cloudy reddish brown colour, huge cream-coloured head. Lovely vinous and funky aroma, notes of farmhouse, red wine vinegar and oak. The flavour is fruity and moderately sour (but not vinegary), notes of grape juice, funk and oak. An interesting and drinkable beer!

Lukaduke (2374) - Portland, Maine, USA - AUG 19, 2012
Pours a rosey rusty brown color with a two finger fizzy head that disappears quickly... but lots of rising bubbles keep the ring alive and bubbling like a volcano in the center LOTS of bottom risers here ! This beer even sounds good with fizzy white noise calling you from the glass. Aromas are earthy, tart, sweet with notes of strawberry, grape, cherry and plum.... tons of fruit. On the palate the fruit is more subdued than I would have thought it to be... great mouthfeel with great champagne like bubbles. Earthy notes of composte, autumn leaves, round malts, dark plum, wild brett and touches of tart cider.... alot of complex notes here... with a finish that taste like a moist forest floor at the turn of fall. Yum

Big suprise. Best Italian sour ale. Good malty taste with sour fruits. Nice pallat. Bit overpriced ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Vignale (2211) - 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.

Bill Becker (410) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - NOV 12, 2014
It’s a slightly hazy brew of red, 1" of foam, laces like a champ. The nose is a big mix of tart cherries and Brett. I can’t decide which is stronger. Tart cherries, funky flavour, just as I expected. The label says strawberries, raspberries, and red currants...umm...okay. Not cherries, my mistake. I do get them there fruity flavours *after* reading that. And you know what? I dig them. Astringency? Holy feck yes. Light body, zesty level of carbonation, good mouthfeel and the brew got cloudy with the last few ounces added to the glass. This is very good, but again, as with most Italian craft beers, the price is out of whack for the size of the bottles.

Dickinsonbeer (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 26, 2011
Small bottle. Pours a hazy deep orange/copper with a thinning head. Aroma is grapeskins, grape must, earth, funky earthy brett, old dried leather, some cherry skin and pitty. Flavor is earthy, grape, prunes, fruity yet not sweet, tart old oxidized wine, earth and leather, bretty funk with more pits- cherry, cyanide, woody then tannic and tart in the finish- mostly lactic, slight aceto and a mild astringency. Pretty good.
