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.

laiti (7981) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 21, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 21, 2016 75 cl bottle vintage 2013 @ Kinnarniemi. Bottled 11.06.2013. Aroma has earthy notes, fruit candy and grapefruit. Flavour is tart with grapefruit, some orange and mild earthiness. There’s a sweetish orange tone that do not usually exist in Belgian ones. Refreshing, balanced and very good.

750 ml bottle
The second member of a world class flight compared well to the previous Raphael. Taking the sour experience in a different direction, it demonstrated why Panil is one of the only Italian breweries I am willing to pull the trigger on. Give it a shot if you somehow exhaust the Belgian list of unblended lambics or just want something different.

Aroma / Appearance - A bronze semitransparent base rests below an ivory head. Sheer legs release waves of sharp blue cheese, vinegar, and acid. Funky and bright, it has a residual aroma of caramel.

Flavor / Palate - A fluid caramel base binds together honey and ranch dressing. Oak, sour cream, vanilla, and malt vinegar work together in a way that defies all logic. The profile of this particular lambic sets it apart; rather than trying to imitate its kin from further north it carves out a unique niche.
