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

Vignale (2539) - 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 (552) - 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.

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.

Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - AUG 8, 2011
Bottle. A hazy medium amber beer, with a large. fizzy. mostly diminishing off-white head. The aroma is lightly malty (caramel), moderately yeasty (earth, mold/must), with notes of grapes. berries, wood, cherries and citirc fruits. The flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation, long finish with light to medium bitterness. Average appearence, but excellent and super fruity aroma. Some sugars, but balanced by the right amount of astringency. Very good.

Cipressaia (53) - ITALY - SEP 13, 2011
Delicatissima creazione di Valter, forse la più ruffiana e bilanciata tra tutte. Ad onor del vero al palato perde un po’, avesse avuto più corpo sarebbe stata quasi perfetta

marcus (7562) - Sacramento, California, USA - NOV 21, 2011
Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours cloudy copper with an attractive beige head and a sour fruity aroma. There is a complex sour flavor that is dominated by red currant and there is a also some unspecified berry flavor, yeast (brett?) and caramel malt. Very tasty.

Boutip (5185) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 27, 2012
Bottle: Poured a clear reddish color beer with a large off-white foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma of oak and light tart cherry with some vinous notes as well. Taste is a great refreshing mix between some oak with light tart cherries and some vinous finish. Not too sour and very light acidic notes. Body is about average for style with good carbonation. Too expensive for what it is but very enjoyable noenhteless.

DanielBrown (4112) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2013
Keg at Brewdog Brum. Amber (I love Bish). Blimey, this is a strange one. Has definite rouge fruit notes, but coupled with genuine tree bark flavouring, which is dry, earthy and has hints of choc. Is it sour? Kind of. There is rosehip. I have never eaten a rosehip. On the whole: up.
