Leo, Teo e Sam sono andati alla ricerca dell’origine della birra, ricreando un’audace ricetta ispirata alle antiche bevande fermentate. Usando ingredienti comuni sulla base dei ritrovamenti archeologici ogni birrificio ha scelto un metodo di fermentazione diverso. A Borgorose, l’Etrusca, l’abbiamo fatta riposare in grandi anfore di terracotta, come quelle ritrovate negli antichi siti etruschi

Using ingredients found on archeological sites (different cereals, hazelnuts, raisins, pomegranate, resins, honey), this project is supervised by Patrick McGovern (university of Pennsylvania).
At Del Borgo the beer is fermenting in clay amphorae.

Bottle shared @Freiburg testing. A cloudy yellow beer, Nose is on wild yeast. Aroma is sour and mushroom like, old fruits, moist, spicy, not good at all.

Bottle. 2016. Hazy golden, white foam. Spicy aroma: steamed turnips, spices, little sweet, malt, esters and acetone. Taste: light sour, malt, grappa, herbs, very strange.

Bottle at home. Very interesting beer, honey in the aroma, pomgranade, dry fruits, a nice balancement between sour, bitter and sweet in the taste. A differnt ale than what we use to, gives a nice idea of how fifferent beer could have been in the past. Bravo

MrHangover (4693) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUN 1, 2017
Bottle. Pours a clear golden beer with a minimal amount of white head on top. Aroma is yeasty, malty, some caramel and booze, some ripe red fruits in there as well. Flavor is sweet with lots of fruity hints, some grapes and honey in there, a bit undercarbonated, thin bodied, lots of honey in the aftertaste. Alcohol is very well hidden, aftertaste is long and sweet. A bit too one-dimesional and too sweet for me, but decent.

Klares Bernstein mit relativ wenig Schaum. Süßlich, etwas Honig, leicht fruchtig, Rosinen, Kräuter, säuerlich, spritzig.

Sample at Borefts 2016. Poured a hazy medium amber with a thin broken white head. The aroma is dry mineral aspirin light fruit. The flavour is moderate sweet with a floral hop, yeast palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation.

Tasted at Borefts Beer Festival 2016. Biological waste, rotting plants and a big mess is what I got here. Bad sample?
