Pours a red color with no head. The taste is sweet, fruity with loads of rasberry flavors. Finshes slight sour and balanced. Light dry palate.

mansquito (4932) - Nueva York, New York, USA - DEC 13, 2015
New Beer Distributors, NYc 750ml: pours light brownish with a white head. Aroma is a lot of wood and cherries and some vinegar. Taste is rather sou. Not really all that sweet. Seems a bit unbalanced to me, as if it does not really know where to go with itself. Plenty sour aftertaste. Not a huge fan.

750 ml bottle
The capstone to Cleveland Beer Week included an opportunity to try this gem which is one of the only things out of Italy that seems to survive the trip to the United States well. From start to finish the profile sparkles with a sour note that set the tone for the flight to come.

Aroma / Appearance - A golden rosy body shimmers with light underneath a thin whitish veneer. Musty dog, vinegar, oak, and dried lemon peels tease at the sour contents within.

Flavor / Palate - Tart dried figs, lemons, and the taste of musty books slowly decaying on shelves scour clean the palate. A cheesy finish offers hints of what direction this beer might head with more aging. Five ounces was enough to whet the appetite; depending on the cost perhaps I’d spring for a bottle as a special treat every once in a while.

Travlr (19872) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - NOV 21, 2015
Bottle sample at Iron Gate. Almost a gusher, but not quite. Clear golden color, massive white head. Aroma has dusty cobwebs, light tannins, rotten overripe cherries. Taste is profoundly earthy, dank, sweaty, dirty, dusty cherries and vanilla. Not for the faint of heart.

jackl (6737) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 11, 2015
Bottle @ BVery’s. Really fizzy medium gold pour with a modest head. Nose is pretty oaky. Some butterscotch candies and a big of buggy tartness. Flavor is or candied apples, caramelized autumn fruits. Somewhat earthy, dirty. Lightly sour on the finish. Medium body. OK.

JK (5591) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - SEP 8, 2015
I have liked Panil for a long time, especially after finding several beers from them in Florence that I have not seen at home before or since. Light brown color. Very well carbonated, which more and more I think European brewers are getting right. A bit like a saison. Not very strong flavors, and not particularly sour, but there is yeast, mild sourness, and an earthy quality that I enjoyed an found refreshing. The carbonation helps this beer considerably.

Bacterial (2709) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - AUG 22, 2015
Hazy pale amber pour with a big frothy white head. Slightly funky nose with a big barley aroma. Mild tartness then a nice subtle straw funk. Cool.

thomashall (610) - New Hope, Minnesota, USA - AUG 22, 2015
Bottle shared by JK, thanks man. Cloudy light brown pour. Kind of sour apple aroma but taste is very different. Very oakey taste with some slight funk. Interesting brew.

Bomber shared by John - thanks! Hazy orange pour. Extremely carbonated. Funky barnyard with some leather. Slight acetic. Good. Underrated here.
