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.

Bottle @ Bobby’s house. Shared by GT. Hazy golden pour with a white head. Really funky nose. Sulfur, sawdust, grass, and brine. A bit of must and damp straw. Flavor is a bit tart and lactic. Pretty funky. Lots of grass, sulfur, sawdust, and green apple. Some must, straw, and a touch of hot dog. Not a big fan.

GT2 (8366) - San Diego County, California, USA - NOV 24, 2013
750mL from La Bodega. Pours a clear, light golden. Weak foam. Nose is salty, sulfury, dishwater- volatile notes clean up over time to some solid peach and saltwater. Taste is peach, chardonnay, apricot, fairly juicy. Palate feels a bit soapy and thin.

Ontape (275) - Valley Village, California, USA - NOV 3, 2013
Bottle, 2013 Batch 2. Pours a light orange with a light white head. Smell is light funk and citrus but very mild on both counts. Taste has a bit more action -- lemon, tart, funk, hay, wood. Bright and clean with nice white wine notes. Lightly carbonated, fairly lively on the palate. Nice palate-cleansing dinner beer, it was great with some vegan soul food.

JBPortland (747) - Portland, Maine, USA - OCT 26, 2013
From 10/18 notes. 750ml bottle, batch 1. Has a nose of tart apple skin, light funk, also getting some melting plastic aroma. Mouthfeel is well carbonated and crisp. Taste is sour, oak, apple, citrus, more plastic notes. Finish is tart, sweet apples, woody. For me, it’s a bit strange.

Bottled nicely but I did not enjoy the taste at all. Very very hoppy flavor ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ThirstyBird (1519) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - SEP 11, 2013
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.
