COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Available as Divinatale or simply as Divina, in bottles of 75cl; the card attached to the neck reads "birra speciale maturata in legno" (wood aged). The alcohol went from 6% in the earier versions to 6.5% today.
If you had a 37cl bottle, you had the regular, not barrel-aged, Divina.

Nella Divinatale, versione natalizia della Divina, il mosto viene inseminato naturalmente in cantina, senza aggiungere lieviti. A fermentazione avvenuta, la birra viene fatta maturare in barriques di rovere francese. Dopo rifermentazione in bottiglia, presenta un leggero profumo vinoso e al gusto sentori di frutta esotica, con note acidule molto delicate ed eleganti.

Divina brewed using open fermentation.

Thanks to Hertie for sharing! Pours a light cloudy dull yellow with a nice white head. Smell is leather, wood, tart sourness, pepper, grass. Taste is dry tart wood, leather, dry Riesling - super dry ending. As the beer sits it mellows and become very approachable. Light body and active carbonation. An interesting brew.

I thought it was a Faro but it is not, obviously. Really funky barnyard taste going on here, whisked us away to an Italian rustic hideaway. Can’t wait for ABL to do the Led Zep thing. It won’t involve fish probably.

Bottle... Poured hazy amber/golden with a thin head. Nice barrel and sour tones on this one. Refreshing, not too hard on the palate. A little drying towards the finish with some fruits and acidity along with a hint of funk.

Bottle #518. Amber beer with a cream head. Tart/sour aroma with light fruit. Tart/sour flavor with light fruit, earth, and light oak. Medium bodied. Tart/sourness and oak linger with summer fruit and earthiness.

750 mL, big thanks to Zack for sharing!! Hazy straw colored pour, bubbly white head that dissipates quickly. Nose and flavor bring big funky barnyard, bright vinegar tones, stonefruit, biting lemon acidity, horseblanket. Bold, in your face, and very very tasty. A treat.

Looks like unfiltered apple juice, smell of tropic fruits with a fermented fruity sour taste, not mutch oak. A great lambic.
