Linea Teo Musso: Le Baladin Xyauyu
[Now all three interpretations in stock!]
"...We are entering now a world of magic, surprises, rhythm where the -- in of gluttony -- can be committed without remorse. Here, Teo has made the "drawing room beers" or "dreaming beers" brewed with an oxidation process called Solera, coming to an exceptional result. These beers (XYAUYU) are marked with the three most important metals of gastronomy: gold, silver and copper.

It is advisable to sip and enjoy them on a comfortable sofa, relaxing and daydreaming. The bottle when is opened remains unaltered and can be even drunk and appreciated within a long time.

Etichetta Rame
Copper label

This fine beer can be likened to an excellent Vin Santo.

Teo Musso produces three versions Gold, Silver & Copper label which differ from each other in terms of degree of oxidation allowed and fruity perfumery aromas created.

Brewing process:

Primary fermentation for 25 days The maturation/aging follows the Method Solera ["adjusted by Teo"], wich was developed centuries ago by the Spanish and Portuguese to perfect the aging of their sherry and port.

Teo's Method Solera:

Teo's objective is to allow Xyauyu to perfectly oxidize during the aging proces of 2.5 years {oxidation plays a critical role in aging port, sherry, as well as our vintage beers - too much oxidation will ruin the liquid - too little will not optimize the change in flavor / aroma during the aging process} .Here's how Teo's system works: Xyauyu is transfered to a steel vessel with transparent membrane and a "oxygen hat". After several tastings during the 2.5 year aging process Teo decides when it's time to bottle (it all depends upon the oxidation velocity).

Alc./Vol.: 13.0
