Baladin Birra Lurisia Dodici (12)

Brewed by Le Baladin
Piozzo, Italy
12% Barley Wine | 21 Ratings |
Nasce come birra da relax. La fermentazione naturale e la accurata ossidazione ne fanno una birra da accomunare ad un passito, mentre la infusione di tè lapsang souchong, un particolare tè cinese affumicato, unita alla qualità dell acqua di Lurisia, le donano una originale impronta aromatica. All occhio si presenta con note cromatiche di un ramato chiaro date dall ossidazione prolungata. Le tracce olfattive presentano tratti di affumicato e di madera mentre in bocca lo stupore diventa totale poiché, per un attimo, ci si scorda di trovarsi di fronte ad una birra: piuttosto la sensazione è quella, appunto, di un vino passito. Gradazione originaria: 30° Plato, Gradazione alcolica: 12% vol., Birra ad alta fermentazione, Temperatura di servizio: 16° C, Bottiglia da l. 0,375
Abbinamenti: da sorseggiare in piacevole compagnia e con estrema lentezza per poterne assaporare pienamente la delicata piacevolezza.

Plato 31
