Giovanni Campari (Birrificio del Ducato, Italy) & Tim Adams (Oxbow Brewing, Maine) came together to brew this new release!

Brewing/production notes from Tim Adams:

"We brewed a brown base beer, part of which was fermented in stainless with ale yeast, and the rest of the wort was knocked out directly into chrysopolis barrels and fermented solely by Ducato house souring organisms and brett. Following fermentation, the beer was blended back together and all racked into freshly dumped Brunello barrels. The beer was aged for several months in these barrels, followed by a final blending process."

Bottle conditioned.

Ysok02 (1870) - Mons, BELGIUM - SEP 24, 2017
Robe brune, reflets rouges, fine mousse. Nez tout en élégance sur des notes de cerise acidulée sur un fond de bois, un caractère vineux et épicé. Bouche tout en finesse et délicatesse, de la tension, du fruit, une bulle acidulée et enrobée et une finale longue et complexe. Un régal de fruit et d'équilibre
