Sexy little bottle. Pours out a golden topped with a white head. Nose is band aids funky barrel spice. Taste is more of the nice funky bugs barrel notes.

heavy (2890) - Split, CROATIA - JUL 30, 2017
Dec. ’16. A 0.33 l bottle at Regina del Formaggio, Split. It poured a hazy golden body with a huge head. Fine, lemony, tart lambic and apricot aroma. Flavor was lightly sour and lightly sweet, showing some cider characteristics but on the other hand a typical lemony-chalky saison. That fruity sourness was balancing somewhere between green apple and lemon, with ton of chalk from yeast. Spiced up with cork and leather, this was quite complex beer although, as it’s a saison obviously, not very rich in flavors except dominating tartness. Thinner in body with moderately long finish which followed the flavor in leather and apple-lemon notes. Interesting blend I never thought about before, but it turned out excellent, ennobling base saison which is good anyway. Very refreshing and enjoyable summer beer.

A friend bought a bottle of this and offered me a taster. Frankly, this style, or blend of styles, is lost on me, possibly due to my lamentably poor sense of smell, but moreso by my preference for the mainstream styles, from lager to stout. So, naturally, I’m rating this on my lack of appreciation for the style rather than on its place within that style. Disregard!

davidezdonz (571) - Hong Kong, HONG KONG - JUN 23, 2016
A 330ml bottle with a nice unique bottle shape and a best before date of April 2017, poured into a Cantillon ballon glass. It poured a nice clear golden colour with a one finger white head that dissipated fairly quickly but leaves nice lacing. Aromas are tart, lemon peel and oak with a hint of apple and funkiness. Tastes tart and funky with fruity lemon and apple. Not overly sour, and in fact I got a lightly sweet apple cider finish. Dry, light bodied with high spritzy carbonation. Overall this was nice and refreshing. I am lucky to have one more bottle, which is a good thing considering Birra del Borgo is now under AB InBev and seeing the lengths that Cantillon have gone to, it appear that, even if this beer is produced again, that it will NOT be with lambic from Cantillon. Therefore if you can still find this, it’s definitely worth a try, even possibly a last try!

It was a gusher... Pours a hazy gold color. Aromas of tart fruit, bread, citrus, and yeasty. Flavor is malty/citrus. Leaves a yeasty orange aftertaste.
