The territory of Ogliastra (Sardinian Sub–region) is made of a very interesting variety, with its mountainous chains (granitic Serramari massif to the East), high plateaus (Taccu Mannu high plateau to the West), and large plains ending on the Tyrrhenian sea coast (12km long Sarrala marine esplanade). This rich geographic variety helped to preserve till nowadays numerous endangered species (mouflons, eagles, great Falcon, etc..) and countless forestall and floral essences.
It is in this context of highly appraisable richness, both environmental and cultural due to the old traditions still alive nowadays in that area, that we found a small beer factory manufacturing a crafstman’s wheat blonde beer. In the city of Tertenia, a young couple of beer lovers started the production of a “crude beer”, made through high fermentation (fermented between 18-22°C). High fermentation gives perfumed and fruit scented beers, unlike low fermentation beers which are so-called “clean beers” by the taste of malt and hop.
Our W16-71 beer is of dark blonde colour, opal like (it is not filtered nor pasteurized, hence still contains yeast in suspension, as a guarantee of freshness), with smooth foam and a very peculiar and intensely aromatic flavour. Its body is velvety and soft, with sincerely spiced final aftertaste due to an original mix of local wild essences.
This W16-71 beer is no doubt a one-of-a-kind beer, with a unique, typical character. It boasts a fair difference from the classical beers, through very specific own characteristics in taste and dietetic features. Here is a so-called craftsman’s “crude” beer, plain, not pasteurized nor filtered.
Certainly a beer for connoisseurs, to relish as is, not to be accompanied with any kind of food.
We’d rather consider it as a “meditation” beer.
It is highly compatible with hyposodic diets due to its low contains of sodium. This beer contains proteins and essential amino acids, B1-B6-B12 vitamins, folic acid and natural anti oxidants i.e. polifenols contained in the hop. Here is a product of astounding genuineness, since it doesn’t undergo any chemical or physical treatment. There are NO PRESERVATIVES added. Furthermore it is not CO2 added, thus the existing gases are produced exclusively and solely by the yeasts
An increasingly growing group of “aware consumers” is lately gathering around the craftsman’s beers, valuing and appreciating the great genuineness and authenticity of 100% natural products, just as this beer that we chose for you.
