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.

FatPhil (9172) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 24, 2012
750ml bottle (BierKompass.de)
Very pleasant slightly sour aroma, a little cantillon-like, giving me some pleasant woodiness, a touch of citrus, and some white grape and apricot sharp fruitiness. Pours a slightly hazy peach, with a large brief spongy head. Slightly watery palate, but refreshing, carbonation crisp at first, but the palate is a little unsatisfying. Taste has the citrussy sour base, again a bit fou-foune-like, but sharper. Later as the carbonation disappears and the glass warms, the simple bready base comes out more, and it’s very pleasant, quite soft. There’s also a touch of yeastiness that accompanies the citrussy sourness in the finish. Was a better beer than the movie. Sourness was clear but restrained. Well made and certainly very tasty.

Bottle shared at bu11zeye’s 10,000th rating tasting. The beer pours a yellow color with a white head. The aroma has a lot of wheat and yeast notes, with some lemons also thrown in. The flavor is similar. I get some light funk, with some tart lemons, Belgian yeast and a hint of tartness. The beer is fairly dry and is easy to drink. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
