3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a dark golden orange color with tangerine edges and a two finger pillowy white foam head. Good retention, only slowly fading into a thick, lasting ring. Soapy lacing left behind.
Earthy aroma with some musty barnyrad funk along with estery light fruits, peppery spice and a strong vinous grape presence. Hints of bready yeast and peppery spice followed by light grapes, apple, pear and booze.
Medium bodied wih delicate carbonation and a nice balance of zesty spice, bready yeast, estery fruit notes and grape juice. Slight funky with musty grape skin flavor along with peppey spice and bready yeast which adds fullness to the palate. Some boozy sweetness with hits of pear and vinous grapes. Sweeter than open mind with more fruit than just grape/wine character.

Bottle, Bir & Fud, Roma. Hazy yellow pour with a big white head. Nose had notes of spice, grape, wood, brett and citrus. Sweet and sour flavour with more fruits and brett alongside pale malts and a little hoppage. Quite lively carbonation. Tart citrus finish. Likeable stuff

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle a friend found in the back of his stash from a few years back. opened with a nice hiss and poured a golden color with a one finger white head and steady carbonation. aroma has dusty grapes, yeast, and some surviving hops. mouth feel is light and there is high crisp carbonation. flavor has a nice bit of yeast, grapes that have lost there brightness, flowers, very mild wood, and a slight tartness. very nice beer and although it has lost the brightness it stood up incredibly well.

Queste birre di Montegioco con mosto di vino mi convincono fino ad un certo punto, però sicuramente è più rotonda della Openimnd

Poured a hazy dark straw color, thin even white head. Lightly sweet and floral/fruity aroma, apricot, light apple. Mildly sweet, very mild fruity tartness on the start, more malic on the finish. A decent summer brew.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a pale orange with heavy white head. Aroma of lemon, angel food cake, floral hops, and grape juice. Flavor is predominantly malt (nutty and caramel notes) with some dry white wine. A bit of brett in the finish to go with white wine and lemon. Overall, it’s refreshing but not a stand out.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance: very hazy/cloudy dark gold, with one finger of near white head and average lacing. Aroma: slightly musty grain, some cracker, honey, and yeasty spice, with a hint of white grapes and apricots. Taste: a bit wheaty, with some notes of grapes, apple, rice, barnyard, pear, and a bit of honey. Finish: clean, slightly tart and a bit dry, like white wine. Notes: Ordered online for a beer pairing dinner, specifically for the Italy course. Really glad I did; this was the hit of the evening. Really balanced, delicious, and unique. A bit like a saison mixed with a champagne.
