mgajdaczewa (2067) - Katowice, POLAND - JAN 26, 2015
Pachnie jak najlepsze czerwone wina, lekko taninicznie, ciemne leśne owoce, nuty granata, ale to nie wszystko, ponieważ jest to spojone świetną zbożową nutą przypominającą świeżo upieczone ciasto. Do tego lekka derka. Jest genialnie. W smaku wytrawnie, wyraźnie kwaskowo, nuty winogronowe dopiero w posmaku, wyraźne drewno i nuty wanilii, nieco karmelowej słodowości, alkohol lekko głaszcze podniebienie. Ambrozja. Jedyny minus - wygląd. Wysokie szampańskie wysycenie, piana także jak na szampanie, czyli trzyma się przez 3 sekundy.

Bill Becker (974) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - NOV 16, 2014
Its a deep red colour with a small head of foam that shrinks quickly and ends up being gone. The smell is of tarty fruit, grapes that is, with more than a whiff of the oak aging. Tastes match the smell; grape tartness and well integrated oak/woody flavours. Good mouthfeel, the carbonation is on the very low side. It does drink stronger than the abv would suggest. This bottle from 2012 was very nice.

tandembrauer (1451) - Stavanger, NORWAY - NOV 2, 2014
On tap at Whats Brewing beer festival 2014, Stavanger. Tasted the 2013 ed. Pours copper to red with no head. Aroma of "burnt dust", gooseberries, grapes -- reminds me more to wine than beer. Thin bodied. Interesting beer, however.

brianza_ale (211) - ITALY - OCT 28, 2014
375 ml 2012, teku Pours a minimal frothy off white head, beautiful, and slightly cloudy, ruby colour. Smells very red fruity, piemonte wine grapes, noble woods, basement, wild bacteria; outstanding aroma. Tastes again very fruity, grape cherry raspberry, dried fruits, with an awesome winey and wooded finish, grapes tartness. Perfect amount of sweetness, followed by a lively but never overdone beautiful sour note. Less than medium, quite light, consistency body, which gives this brew a great drinkability, nice soft amount of carbonation. Described in 3 words, this beer is fruit, wine and wood. Much better than many "typical" spontaneous fermentation Belgian beers Ive tried. Oustanding product

Nische (2145) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 4, 2014
A bit hazy reddish/brown with a small head. Aroma of funk, grapes, wood and vinegar. Similar taste, also some berries. Dry and vinous. Tried 2012 and 2013 and the taste is a little bit more mellow and more well balanced as it has aged.

BrettTaylor (768) - Radford, Virginia, USA - OCT 3, 2014
Bottle brewed in 2011. Poured into snifter. Pours a clear reddish color with a thin white head. Aroma - tart grape notes (definitely barbera), sour, some funk. Taste - sour fruit notes, lots of farmyard funk. Mouthfeel is a bit thin. The fruit notes are grape, cherry and maybe some raspberry. The Italian beer scene has come very far in such a short span of time. This is really a good beer.
