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.

Bottiglia 2011. Colore giallo ora con una schiuma assente, aroma di malto, legno e varie note di vino, in bocca scorre molto facilmente con un buon bilanciamento tra l’acido e il dolce, sicuramente invita ad un altro sorso. Ottima sour.

Bottle premiered for start of football season hoping to make rating 2800 but I fucked up and it’s 2801. 2011 vintage Pours flat orange yellow with tart nose of lemons and wood. Tastes of lemons, pears, apple skin, wooden barrel, barnyard, some candy sugar. Tart palate. Enjoyable thanks again Alberto.

NosirIwont (2199) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - MAY 10, 2015
Bottle. 6.5%. Best before 31.03.19. 10 cl. sample. Pours a pale, hazy yellow, with a fast-disappearing white head. Dry, sour aroma, with a horse blanket note. Well-balanced. Flavour is dusty and sour, but with a light sweetness to it as well; almost sugary. Horse blanket note. Fruity as it warms. Dry finish with an orange peel-bitterness. Overall nice and well-balanced, but has a somewhat stale feel/overtone to it. 01.05.15.

MOLA_DK (378) - DENMARK - MAY 1, 2015
Bottle share at VBC. Slightly pale yellow almost no head. Slightly acidic aroma, some yoghurt. Highly drinkable beer, not as sour as most in the style. A little on the sweet side, but the acid balances it out.

sebletitje (8270) - Enghien, BELGIUM - FEB 7, 2015
Cask @ ML Fontainas. Dorée paille présentant qcq sédiments, col léger blanc. Arôme offre directement ce bouquet boisé de chêne et de levure sauvage le tout complété par des effluves de vin rouge. Un peu fruité, fleuri avec un petit rappel de noisette. Palais est accrocheur restant doux malgré le profil aigrelet et boisé. Le côté vin trouve bien sa place ajoutant ce côté fruité rouge accompagné par des notes maltées/grains sur la fin. Le palais offre un léger picotement venant du chêne et toujours ce profil de vin Barbera assez typique. Je note sur la fin un rappel presque de Porto, et un agréable biscuité de crackers.

JulienHuxley (5139) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 30, 2015
On tap at Moeder Lambic Fontainas. Hazy gold pour with thick frothy white head. Aroma is tame, light lemony notes, white wine, quite a bit of oak, sourdough, light buttery notes. Taste is tart, a bit heavy on the oak / butter, light acidity, grainy sweetness. Palate is light bodied, almost watery with soft carbonation. Decent.
