"Lune 2012 is a Barley Wine produced by Baladin, from head brewer Teo Musso’s Riserva range. Aged in barrels that previously contained some of Italy’s greatest white wines, Lune 2012 is something of an homage. As with many beers of this type, the beer pours a clear amber with neither carbonation nor head to speak of. The nose gives hints of white wine and light caramel notes, while the taste is a heady mix of caramel, malt, wood and white wine. The finish is dry with a generous alcohol note. Both surprising and evocative, this is a truly extraordinary beer not to be missed."
