Draught at SBWF. Hazy mahogany colour, mid sized head. Mild vinous tart nose. Near full bodied with well rounded mouthfeel. Acetic with some white pepper. Lemon, wood and red wine dominates. Lovely beer, but the Reserva is even better.

Very dark red - brown beer. Short lived pale tan head. Palate is dry and crisp. Sour, but not overly so. It’s notably Flanders Red sour, the tangy red wine barrel adds to it but it’s then rounded off by the oak and mildly sweet bourbon. Well buried chocolate. Dry finish. Somehow isn’t quite as good as it looks on paper but certainly tasty.

fiulijn (15370) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 21, 2013
Bottle from Pazzeria, Milan; vintage 2009, 4 years old; bb 30-11-2017
The bottle is a slow gusher; it pours a dark and probably unclear brown color with frothy fizzy head, short retention. The aroma is vinous, with wood, a bit fruity, with nice notes of Aceto Balsamico. Luckily it’s not too dry not too sour; malt and caramel flavor that leave some room for a light uninvited liquorice note; correct bitterness; the flavor too is a bit vinous, woody, with a lightly astringent final.
A good beer with no doubt, but not the excellence; it lacks of depth.
