Six months in a Barbera wine barrel give time for this beer to be eaten up by the yeasts living in the wood, maturing it and rounding it out. Pleasantly sour, a great mixed fermentation beer.

ippopotamo36 (365) - Rome, ITALY - DEC 9, 2014
2009 vintage bottle at King Arthur pub in Rome-ITALY, courtesy of Gianluca (publican). Huge thanks Gianluca. Pours a clean pale golden color, very close to a yellow chardonnay like appearance. No real foam, just some white bubbles at the verge of the glass. Nose: wooden barrel, apple skin. Mouth: acetic, apple feel, pleasantly flat body but balanced. Excellent. Gianluca you are spoiling me :-) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beware of the Italians, this country is producing great beers since a few years. This one from Piemonte has matured on Barbera wine battles and has refermented with wine yeast - again an attempt to link the northern European beer culture with mediterranean wine culture. The result is a practically headless beer with cloudy golden blonde colour, boasting a complex aroma of obviously white wine, peach, apricot, wood, sherry, hay, jute, lemon juice, white grapes and something funky. Sourish, fruity taste, dry, vinous, ’wild’ and a bit lambic-like, complex, sherry, hay, citrus, sour cream, dry sourish, wine-like finish, long. Wonderfully complex, impetuous marriage of beer and wine.

northropfrye (2315) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JAN 25, 2014
Cloudy lemon body, very little head. Lovely vinous sour vinegar and lemon aroma, woodsiness as well. Taste is not overly sour, kind of has a lactose finish, with some fruitiness. Nice beer.

thornecb (4542) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 23, 2013
Pours clear gold into a snifter. White frothy head hug rim. Funky earth and sourdough aromas. Thin with dry lemon zest and funk upfront turning to sour summer fruits in the medium length finish.

Mortlach (1015) - Rome, ITALY - SEP 21, 2013
21/09/2013 Brasserie 4:20 (handpump), 2009 vintage. Dorata, torbida, opalescente, schiuma leggerissima a bolle grossolane. Al naso lieviti selvatici, note vinose e legnose, citriche di pompelmo, molto pulita ma di carattere. In bocca ha un’acidità da lambic, i quattro anni di invecchiamento gli hanno fatto un gran bene! Carattere vinoso evidente, note citriche, stemperate appena da note leggermente dolciastre, di mela, finale lungo, complesso e pulito. Corpo medio-leggero, carbonazione soft. La Mummia si conferma un capolavoro!

Pyrmir (3544) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - AUG 9, 2013
Bottle. Golden with small white head. Aroma heavy with barnyard and not much else. Taste is barney at fir, the a wave of sourness which finishes long, a bit sour and malty. Decent

bhensonb (11529) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 8, 2013
Bottle from Pangaea in Sacramento, CA. Pours translucent gold with very little head. Aroma is very barnyard. Med body. Flavor is not so barnyard as the aroma suggested, but it is very. Very. Yet it is almost smooth and mild. Finishes "Pleasantly sour".
