COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is the original version, it’s not barrel aged, the card attached to the neck reads "birra speciale", and it’s available in bottles of 37cl.

If you had a 75cl bottle, you had the "Panil Divina (barrel aged)", which is the same as Panil Divinatale.

henrikb (1260) - Aarhus, - NOV 22, 2009
Good beer, or actually not and very very far from the taste of your normal Belgium Lambic; I pours fine with a clear darker golden body and a fine white head; The aroma is alright but like said far from a normal lambic aroma, quite malty and with a strangelight spicy flowery yeasty aroma that you also find in some US Sour Ales; The body is actually not really acid, a little lactic to be found though but mostly just malty; Some old barrel aroma in the finish.

Minderbinder (2634) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 8, 2015
Bottle 375ml. [2010]. Pours golden with low to no head. Aroma is of rubber, fruits, huxxydation. Taste is of rubber, fruits, sourness, cardboard. Palate: Medium body. Very low carbonation. Overall: Deaded. Will re-rate fresher vintage if I get the chance. Still, we drank this one before "best before" date.

mathieuc (2285) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 4, 2015
UPDATED: APR 8, 2015 Best before 07/2015. Pours a clear golden with some big bubbles for a head. Nose is of nuts, some paint thinner, fruits and almond (redundant I know but I got a separate impression). Taste is of light chlorine, moderately acid with more oxidation nuts and cardboard, fruits and some wheat germ. Body is light to medium, carbonation moderate and it felt semi-authentic with a low level of funk. Overall this was pretty much dead, might rerate if I stumble upon a fresher sample.

tom10101 (4031) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 4, 2015
Bottle (375 ml). 2010 vintage. Shared by mathieuc, thanks!

Appearance: Cear golden with a small ring of white foam and no lacing.

Aroma: Oxidized. Cardboard and paint thinner. After is breathe for a while, there’s some oak, honeyed notes, light spiciness and rotten white grapes.

Taste: It doesn’t get much better here. Cardboard and paint thinner at first, followed by some honey sweetness, rotten white grapes, oak and mild spiciness.

Palate: Medium body. Very soft carbonation, borderline still. Cardboard finish.

Overall: This beer was dead. Not good at all and a lot less good that what I remember from Panil Divina Barrel-Aged (though is as some of the same "problems").

gramity (1581) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 21, 2015
Pours a yellowish colour with a white head. Pretty fruity on the nose with notes of bitter oranges and some funky brett. The flavour has notes of citrus fruits and moderate funky barnyard. Very refreshing without being overly sourish. It somewhat feels like a combination of 50% lambic and 50% belgian pale ale

Bottle share. Batch #1 bottle 78. Cloudy light orange. Aroma of cheesy, wet blanket funk, salt, lemon, dank straw. Taste is sour and a bit salty. Crisp, dry mouthfeel. A bit sticky.

PriorL (2784) - Gent, BELGIUM - OCT 15, 2014
Young sample. Bottle at home. APPEARANCE: clear blond beer, small stable white head. NOSE: somewhat sour, though chemical note... TASTE: sourness, somewhat fruity. Not bad whatsoever!

emacgee (4407) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - SEP 10, 2014
Hazy bright blonde pour with a frothy white head. Aroma is weird, band-aid and a medicinal acidity. Off flavor, band-aid phenolics and weirdness. Not a big fan of this one. Very dry finish.
