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.

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.

Lukaduke (2141) - Portland, Maine, USA - MAY 18, 2013
Pours a slightly hazy orange golden color with a finger of fizzy eggshell foam. The nose is fruity with notes of leather, new sneakers, stonefruit, apple, lemon and dusty funk. The palate follows with a nice balance of tart funk and fruit... there is a touch of offness as it warms up slight touches of band aid come through.

gEUS (1035) - Linden, BELGIUM - APR 11, 2013
taken from notes - 750 ml bottle at sloshfest 2012. Nice bottle, not only the looks but the cahracter of the beer is very vinious and fresh: some grape and floral notes. Refreshing palate (gentle carbonation) and nice crisp balance. Myeah, like.

Sammy (8552) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 23, 2013
Bottle from Quebec private order, 2009 brewed, released in 2010. Near vinegar and yeast, a great geuze like beer. More malty when I first had it, I saved the second half of the bottle for later that day as carbonation eased so did the head and more aggressive vinegar. Still very drinkable.Hard on the palate, though not as much as some Cantillons.

IlBevitorediLA (452) - ITALY - MAR 8, 2013
Ambrata, torbida. Schiuma fitta supportata da un elegante e fine perlage. Aroma agrumato, acido, legnoso, fruttato molto pulito. Al palato ingresso carbonato, acido. Le note acide e della frutta acerba sono equilibrate da un elegante sentore legnoso. Finale secco. Bevuta interessante. Ottima lambic.
