COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Available as Divinatale or simply as Divina, in bottles of 75cl; the card attached to the neck reads "birra speciale maturata in legno" (wood aged). The alcohol went from 6% in the earier versions to 6.5% today.
If you had a 37cl bottle, you had the regular, not barrel-aged, Divina.

Nella Divinatale, versione natalizia della Divina, il mosto viene inseminato naturalmente in cantina, senza aggiungere lieviti. A fermentazione avvenuta, la birra viene fatta maturare in barriques di rovere francese. Dopo rifermentazione in bottiglia, presenta un leggero profumo vinoso e al gusto sentori di frutta esotica, con note acidule molto delicate ed eleganti.

Divina brewed using open fermentation.

Hazy golden colored body, thin white head, and soapy lacing. Oak, lactic, floral funk, must, a bit soapy, toasted malt. Medium bodied, lively carbonation, lively acidity, lingering finish, fairly soapy/chemically in the back half.

Bottle shared at Ryan’s, pours Hazy golden, notes of chlorine, amaretto, biscuit, watery funk. I like the finish on this one. Ligh pucker. Light to medium in body.

A very good oude gueuze from Italy. Complex aroma that introduces a nice sour taste with flowery and wild fruity notes.

OldMrCrow (2446) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 1, 2014
Bottle w/ Chris. Pours hazy yellow, at least as best as I can tell by way of the bit of blue lingering in the sky at 10:15 on this late-June Seattle night. Burnt rubber and medicinal aroma, lemon of course, wood. Not aggressively sour, just tart, almost sweet-tart, white grapefruit and lemon, again that rubber, sawdust. Tasty if not exception.

2013 bottle (b1) shared by tom10101, many thanks dude. pours cloudy pale yellow with a surprising frothy white head, good retention and lacing. funky dust, wheat, nice fruitiness - citrus, apricots, bitter herbs, few soapy and (unfortunately) a disturbing chlorine presence. light acidity - relatively complex acidity profile. bright carbonation, light body - oily, astringent-tannic grassy-herbal finish. if chlorine is put aside, this would be a very nice attempt, if not a success, in lambic territory.

Minderbinder (3469) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 24, 2014
Bottle 750ml [2013, b1] Pours hazy blond with low white head. Nice lacing. Aroma is of rusticity, apricots, rubber, citrus. Taste is of rusticity, nice citrus, rubber, slight chlorine. Palate: Light body. Soft carbonation. Overall: Pretty good, but just a little something too weird here to be excellent.

Pours a cloudy yellow with a medium white head and good lacing. Nose is weird, a mix of rubber, acid and cholophenols. Not weird enough to deter me from sampling it, though. Taste is nice and clean lactic acidity and really fruity. It feels like you are drinking a nice white wine, really. Body was light to medium, carbonation medium (huh?). Really nice even though the nose is bad. It is really good once you get used to it!

Bottle (750 ml). 2013, batch 1. Hazy straw color with a small persistent white head and some lacing. Aroma is of citrus, funk, leathery notes, but also some off rubber and chlorine presence. Taste is of leathery brett, nice funk, citrus, rubber and chlorine. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Dry finish. This unblended lambic is quite authentic and there’s many interesting features, but the rubber/chlorine presence is a turn-off for me.

mcberko (18956) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 5, 2014
750mL bottle, pours an opaque, cloudy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma brings out moderate barnyard funk, slight acidity, and dough. Flavour is very close to an authentic unblended lambic, with barnyard funk, leather, citrus peel, and vegetal notes. Really awesome unblended lambic, but with carbonation - unlike more traditional versions of the style. Wonderful stuff.
