La Mummia Sour Ale

Montegioco 2009 La Mummia....$10.99 / 11.2oz
Brewed in 2009 * Sour Ale aged in Oak Barrels

Aged in different Barbera wine barrels . In the glass it is pale yellow with shades of gold, Crystal clear. The nose offers vinous notes . Notes of citrus (lime, grapefruit), wildflowers, along with woody notes that remind us of the passage in the barrel. The palate is very fresh, tart, but also complex, we find the notes of citrus, accompanied by honey and white fruits. La Mummia is very elegant, refined, with an unexpected savory note on the finish. Soft, very long, but also fresh, reminiscent of a very young lambic, i.e. no CO2.
