Bottle shared by Alex at Bir & Fud in Rome - big thanks! A commercial description translated by free translations: Produced to High Fermentation. Beer from the amber-colored color and from the wine taste, fermented and ripened only in vats of oak. Produced following a Belgian prescription of inspiration. L' acidity just pronounced and l' bitter very restrained, give back this versatile beer in the linkings and suitable to the typical dishes of the kitchen. This may be better classified as an American Wild but either way it's delicious.
Pours a murky brownish-amber color with a half-finger slightly off-white head. The head recedes into a wispy layer on top leaving decent lacing.
Smells of grainy yet nondescript malts with good amounts of tart fruits - currants and dark cherries. Also present are mild hints of raisins and funk.
Tastes similar to how it smells although not quite as complex. Grainy and robust malt flavors serve as a backbone for tart cherry and currant flavors. The flavors sweeten midway through the sip before mild amounts of funk come in to carry through to a crisp ending.
Mouthfeel is good. It's got a solid thickness with active carbonation.
Drinkability is very good. I finished my glass quickly and could easily have a few more.
Overall this was a very solid beer - complex with everything present in very good levels. Well worth a shot if you see it around.
