This is an oak barrel aged beer obtained starting from the same most of our Barley and same alcohol content (10% vol). We jealousy keep it in the french wood barrique for 6 months. These barriques are kindly supplied by Enrico Trapletti’s cellars after they have kept twice his top wine brand Culdree ( http://www.ticivino.ch/vini-e-degustazioni/rossi/207-culdree.html ).
The beer looks ruby color, slightly veiled, on purpose totally free of foam (no head). As a matter of fact, the carbonation is in the bottle specifically avoided in order to allow the aromas developing the best: plum, vinous, green apple, black cherries.
On the palate the lightweight and well-balanced sourness, allows us to distinguish the notes of wood, with the tannins present but never dominant, and, again, hints of prunes and cherries. Alcohol is very well hidden. Beer is supposed to be served at 15 °C in a tulip glass, perfect to be sip after dinner in front of a roaring fire. A meditation beer! Show Less
