A-Guessing it was from a bottle; sampled at EBF. Rosso E Marrone pours a reddish brown, which I'm guessing is why the beer earned its name.

S-Tart cherries and a kind of Pinot Noir winey fruitiness. Funky and oaky as well. Also seems to have a brown maltiness.

T-A big, bold Flanders with lots of sweet and sour cherries.again, it reminds me of an old Pinot Noir or maybe even a Barrolo. Oakiness and genuine wine-grape flavors. Finishes with a sweet maltiness that is also infected with a lingering funk.

M-Alcohol is irrelevant. Soft carbonation and an agreeable body. Tannic.

O/D-I enjoyed Rosso E Marrone. It is sure to please any lovers of Wild Ales. I don't I will get to try this again but would absolutely love to sit down and nurse a whole bottle to see how it changes with some warmth.
