COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Un giovane Chianti seduce con la sua forza una Duchessa, lei lo ammalia con l’eleganza ed insieme vanno poi a sposarsi, con un corredo al 50% mosto di vino e 50% mosto di birra in un fermento unico, creando un’alchimia indimenticabile. L’unione prosegue in bottiglia con l’aggiunta del liqueur de tirage che li rende spumeggianti. Dimorano in bottiglia insieme ai loro piccoli lieviti, che doneranno fragranza al loro matrimonio. Invecchiano insieme e poi il mago Birraio dona loro nuova vita con il rito magico della sboccatura, aggiungendo la pozione, il liqueur d’expedition, come da antica ricetta tramandata di generazione in generazione. Rarissima prima edizione rilasciata in quantitativi estremamente limitatati dal Birrificio Del Borgo, prodotta con mosto fiore di Montepulciano e metodo Champenoise. Un gioco di equilibri tra vino e birra senza paragoni. Un articolo assolutamente da collezionare.

Brewed with 39% of Sangiovese wine wort, fermented with wine yeast and refermented with champagne yeast.
Produced at Azienda Agricola Tenuta di Bibbiano.

mgajdaczewa (1858) - Katowice, POLAND - DEC 19, 2016
W aromacie coś pomiędzy ciemnymi winogronami a śliwką węgierką, dużo brettów, lekkie nutki drewna. W smaku doskonale ułożone.11%? Kaj? Winne, taniczne, gładkie, wytrawne, zaledwie lekko kwaskowe. Bardzo szlachetne. Świetnie się to pije.

Magela (136) - Rio de Janeiro, BRAZIL - NOV 27, 2016
A beer with sparkling wine properties. The nose is light citric and oak. The taste begins citric and changes to mix of licorish spices and grapes and berrys. It’s carbonate and has a sweet and acid balance. Finishes with the sense of a wine. Sour and dry.

SeniorZozo (1345) - Budapest, HUNGARY - SEP 18, 2016
TAP @ #1 Bevog Beerfestival Austria. Hazy amber beer, pink tinged. Pale peach coloured head. Airy palate with fine carbonation. Subtle peach and water melon. Light grapey winey vibe on top. Light minerals. Soft airy finish. Not bad but suffering in comparison to the vibrant white wine ba Burning Sky, a few bottles back.

Tap. L’equilibrista birra speciale con ingredienti in equilibrio ed armonia. Colore oro scuro quasi bronzo. Aroma floreale, vinoso. Al gusto albicocca e fichi secchi iniziali lasciano il posto all’acidità che ricorda molto le lambic belghe ma non così invadente. Retrogusto lungo e persistente. Da meditazione.

L’equilibrista plays at the edge between champagne and beer. Amazing the fine bubble with a little sour beer finish. Nit for everybody, but definitely pushing beer boundaries
