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.

Thank you BDomua! 750 ml. bottle sampled @ ZZT 2016-1. Bottled 16SEP2014. Dark orange, little white head. Nose is weird plastic, almost bit peated, weirdly salty, messy, funk. Taste is sour, faint peat, almost smoked, sour plastic, vaguely salty, funk, citrus peel, grapefruit,… Sour, malt, faintly peated almost. I have been hoping to try one of these for a long time, this one is bit of a disappointing. Strange flavours that I didn’t really get into. Wild alright but a bit too wild & weird for me personally.

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.
