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.

magicmn (158) - Moscow, RUSSIA - AUG 3, 2016
Draft in Beer&Fud Rome. Pale golden color, thin white head. Sour aroma with notes of citruses, old wine barrels, really close to authentic oude geuze/lambic but with bit more acetic notes. Flavor is also very pleasant with strong enough sourness, fruits, notes of vine and light acetic but its in balance. Probably one of best Italian sour.

Silvan7 (1108) - Samarate, ITALY - JUL 12, 2016
On tap @ arrogat sour festival 2016. giallo dorato, lievemente velato schiuma bianca, fine poco persistente. Aroma intenso, vinoso, legno, pelle di salame. acido lattico. Gusto meno acido di quanto l’aroma lascerebbe intendere. Secca, non molto amara, speziata con legno e terrosa. Grande equilibrio quasi gentle sour, armonica, poco corposa quasi nessuna carbonatazione.

milo91hd (203) - Lecce, ITALY - OCT 10, 2015
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.

NosirIwont (2368) - Frederikssund, 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 (379) - 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.
