4.2/5 rDev +11.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4
Poured from a 75 cl corked bottle (labeled "Drink by 4/15") in Levanto, Italy, a town just north of Cinque Terre
Appearance: Cloudy orange golden. The one finger head dissipated quickly to no head. There was a nice columns of bubbles throughout the entire bottle.
Aroma: Mostly malty with some candy-like sweetness. There was only the barest suggestion of hops and also a slight aroma of oranges.
Taste: This beer has a very enjoyable sourness along with the sweetness -- almost a honey-like or nectar-like sweetness. There is some coriander. Hops are pretty much absent from the taste.
Mouthfeel: The beer feels good in the mouth. It has an appropriate body and level of carbonation.
Overall: I've found a new favorite! Wayan has a very good sweet/sour balance and is well spiced. However, this is a very sweet beer and may be too sweet for some. Since I'm not a hop-head, the absence of hops was OK with me. This beer was good to the end. It paired well with a salty gnocchi dish and a salty mussels dish. All in all, a fun-to-drink, enjoyable beer.

I loved this sour number, served up fresh at Birreria at Eataly in NYC. The aroma, color and froth were just what I'd expect from a Belgian style sour, and the mouthfeel and flavor were outstanding. Not too thin and acidic like many sours, this beer deserves a second helping... no wait, I mean I deserve a second helping of this beer, and did.

Poured from tap into snifter at Avenue Pub NOLA. Pours a slightly brown/bronze golden color with no head or lacing, and no carbonation at all. Sour and funk aromas but grape dominates. Slightly sour and funky lager like with lots of grape flavors...almost white wine or grape skin. Slightly sweet but finishes sour and tart. Nice easy brew and pleasant. I Wish it was as sour as the nose suggests but still nice. One of the more unique brews ive had in a while and my first from Birrifico. Questa birra fa grande. Cent'annti!
