COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Lune: la birra che Teo ha dedicato ai grandi vini bianchi. Messa a maturare nelle botti di Cantina Baladin che hanno ospitato questi blasonati frutti di vigneti italiani è prodotta con orzo e farro completamente italiani. Si diversifica, pur nel contesto della stessa produzione, grazie al differente apporto aromatico dato dalle botti stesse, rilasciato proprio dai vini che prima vi albergavano.

Blended version of Lune. Barley Wine aged in white wine barrel. Limited (brewed once).

2016-07-20, bottle from Spillo, Palermo, 7-4-7-3-15=36
Oak and vanilla aroma, moderate fruitiness, a bit weak on the palate. It seems to be aging not too well. But still a reasonably good beer.

2013-09-21, bottle at Bistrot Baladin, Milan, vintage 2010, 8-4-6-3-14=35
Vanilla and malt aroma, talc. Sweet flavor, less malt than the other Baladin Barley Wines, some vanilla, light white wine (e.g. Passito) touch, low bitterness.
Rather dull; probably it should not be served so warm (but it’s a house beer!).

2012-05-24, courtesy of Jan (fonefan), parallel with Terre, 8-5-8-3-16=40
Amber color. Very nice aroma, luscious, malt, wood, some bourbon, light tobacco; more elegant than the aroma of Terre. Strong body, round mouthfeel; sweet but not syrupy; good malt flavor, with light fruity accent, raisins and quite evident alcohol; there is more oak and vanilla character than wine character.
Very good, but a bit rough.

From the bottle at Open Baladin, Roma - 04/10/12. Hazy dark amber with no head, some bubbles at the edge of the glass. Big wood tones on the nose, figs, prunes, dried fruit, vanilla and some smoke. Complex and rich taste, the alcohol is well disguised, sweet toffee, fruit, dates, prunes, figs, caramel and grapes. Full bodied, no carbonation, smooth.

mcberko (18583) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 20, 2016
500mL bottle, pours a dirty orange with a tiny head. Aroma brings out notes of caramel, a little marshmallow, light vinous notes and vanilla. Flavour is complex, with loads of vanilla upfront, marshmallow, feint white wine, and caramel. Wonderfully integrated, warming and not boozy at all. Rather thin on the palate, with a beautifully vanilla-y and lightly tart finish. Excellent.
