Charm and elegance are two words that perfectly encapsulate l’Equilibrista, a hybrid Sour Ale by Birra Del Borgo brewed with 39% Sangiovese wine must. L’Equilibrista is initially fermented with wine yeast before undergoing a second fermentation with Champagne yeast, resulting in an exquisitely complex brew. Pouring orange beneath a fine white head, this hybrid offers a bouquet composed of fruity malts, wine, grapes, lemon, and yeast. The palate is slick and moderately carbonated with more of the same woody, wine-like character, and an appreciable Champagne note, that lead inexorably to a sour, crisp finish.
