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..

Cloudy amber color; creamy head. It’s a good Belgian Ale, with a balance between sweetness, malt, fruitness. Indeed the aroma is a bit vinous, and with very light vanilla too. Good mouthfeel, with a light astringency from the cask ageing. Very good.

Tasted at Bill’s Sour tasting. Cloudy aroma. Great aroma. I want to say raspberry, but I think it might be leftover from my previous beer. Very nice aroma, BUT the taste is like sticking a moldy foot into your mouth. Whoa.
