  • Mouthfeel: Light-bodied and well carbonated, the mouthfeel of the Rosetta is mildly tart, froth, sharp, and very crisp with a dry and sour finish.
Overall pairing: The Rosetta from Brewery Ommegang is a complex, sweet, and tart brew in the Flemish/Belgian tradition... perfect for the artistic beauty, depth, and might that is Vuur's "In This Moment We Are Free - Cities"!
