4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured a cloudy amber with a tall fizzy/frothy off-white head. Rich and sweet aroma of cherries, cinnamon, fresh lemon juice, a bit of oakiness. Flavor follows and has the acidity expected, though not the sweetness. Tart and woody cherries mix with olive pit and a touch of cinnamon and coriander, leading to a dry and slightly bitter finish. A bit of sweetness could have been used to round this out a bit more. Body is somewhat light and fizzy though it works with the oaky acidity of the beer. Although the flavor is somewhat less enticing the aroma, it is still complex, refined, and refreshing. Overall I found this to be a very good beer.

Pours hazy amber/brwon with thick off white head. Aroma has brett in the nose. Taste is very smooth with flavors of cherries and oak. Nice creaminess in the mouthfeel. The sourness adds to the slight sweetness of this beer. Will seek out again. Very good.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle 37,5 cl.) Courtesy of yespr. Hazy amber golden with a creamy off-white head. Tart, Brettish aroma. Quite full-bodied with a somewhat low carbonation, extremely sweet fruit and a strange acidity. This beer points in many different directions, but I actually find it quite interesting - but harmonious? No! I take it that the Bretty aroma was intended. 200608

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Oak aged Bright red-amber, medium orangey head. Very fruity, fleshy and fruity esters in the nose. Wood, wild strawberries, more esters and higher alcohols - very balanced flavourprofile. Medium bodied, acids thinning, lively. Another gem from Montegioco.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hazy dark amber color, super big, frothy, lacy, and icy looking head. The nose was fucking brilliant! Huge Brett Funk...Thick super cheesy but somewhat sweet but at the same time very barnyard with maybe a nice river of molasses flavored playdough running through the middle. Somewhat fizzy. The flavors here were fucking warped. Not sure what barbera wine is, but holy fucking shit this stuff was cheesy! The palate was thick and chewy with wierdo wild yeast, funk, cheese, mildew, sweetness, wet cardboard (in a good way), medicine, leather, and god knows what. I was not expecting this whatsoever...it’s quite grand. Its kind of like a gueuze on acid...no, make that peyote...rotten, moldy peyote..
