COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
ABV varies.

Six months in a Barbera wine barrel give time for this beer to be eaten up by the yeasts living in the wood, maturing it and rounding it out. Pleasantly sour, a great mixed fermentation beer.

Oakes (17676) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 2, 2017
Light amber, quite pale, actually. No head. On the nose, a lot of brett. Dry, blueberry, fruity, touch of wood, nice tartness. A rounded, balanced sour/wild.

mcberko (17832) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 27, 2017
Bottle at PIB 2017, pours a clear pale golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out vinous notes, light funk, and some light wild yeast. Flavour is similar, with a pleasant funk character and wild yeast. Light citrus skins with a wild character on the finish. Very nice.

Barrelliere (2) - Salerno, ITALY - MAY 6, 2017 does not count
Bevuta alla spina al Bi. & B. a Salerno il 05/05/17. Schiuma bianca, sottile ed evanescente. Colore oro. Aroma vinoso, acido lattico, frutta a pasta bianca, agrumi. Al palato sembra un lambic giovane, acida, agrumata, note funky, legno, buona astringenza finale. Armonica. Da bere come fosse una session sour. Ottima.

magicmn (170) - Moscow, RUSSIA - AUG 3, 2016
Draft in Beer&Fud Rome. Pale golden color, thin white head. Sour aroma with notes of citruses, old wine barrels, really close to authentic oude geuze/lambic but with bit more acetic notes. Flavor is also very pleasant with strong enough sourness, fruits, notes of vine and light acetic but its in balance. Probably one of best Italian sour.

3.3
Silvan7 (1244) - Samarate, ITALY - JUL 12, 2016
On tap @ arrogat sour festival 2016. giallo dorato, lievemente velato schiuma bianca, fine poco persistente. Aroma intenso, vinoso, legno, pelle di salame. acido lattico. Gusto meno acido di quanto l’aroma lascerebbe intendere. Secca, non molto amara, speziata con legno e terrosa. Grande equilibrio quasi gentle sour, armonica, poco corposa quasi nessuna carbonatazione.

luttonm (6273) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 29, 2016
Draft at Ma Che, Rome. Clearish orange-gold. Soapy string. Funk aroma, earth and gourd. Tart sip, good tart funk. Wine wine yeastiness. Rounded, balanced in a way. Special tart character. Yeast-wild funk. I love it.
