Tasting Notes

From the distributor: "The highlight being a new beer he is making which is a blend of 50% duchessa [his saison] mixed with 50% sangiovese grape must. It is unbelievable. Fermented with champagne yeasts. It has the body of a beer, the acidity and tannins of a wine. Right now the nose is concentrated white fruit. Lots of white peach, pear, light apricot. Panetone smells from the champagne yeast. It is still young and a little sweet and I’m sure it will dry out nicely. He intends to treat it like a champagne and do a degorgment and everything [5 bar!]."

    I think that I have only written up two or three beers because I have a relatively hard time describing them. Let's just say that last night, when I tasted this one, I described another beer as smelling like Kentucky Fried chicken and another one as "composty." This glorious selection, however, is easy. It's just simply delicious! It has peach and stone fruit notes on the nose but, the palate has tart strawberry, raspberry and rhubarb. I was super dubious as it is a cross between beer and wine (the "Champagne" part might have gotten me excited) but, wowsa! I can't say much more than just try it. It is simply delicious!
