Very good Belgian ale taste, it only comes across as slightly worse than some of the trappists on the palate: the bitterness lingers on for a little longer than you’d like. Still it’s very enjoyable, but the problem as with many Italian craft beers is price: even here in Italy this costs more than most imported trappists, so no reason why you shouldn’t choose the latter, really. Come on guys, sell it cheaper!

Bottle from Auchan supermarket, Bussolengo, Italy. A cloudy dark brown beer with a quickly disappearing thin white head. It has a sweet red fruity flavour with gentle currant and cherry notes and a rich malty and smooth spiced fruit finish.

Schiuma poco compatta, a bolle larghe, ma che persiste sui lati della birra, al naso si sente il caramel del malto e un dolce quasi di miele, in bocca si incontra subito il dolce del miele, sul finale un lieve amaro. Il colore è un abra carico

Couleur ambre, mousse moyenne et tenant peu. Alcool fort présent à la première gorgée, suivi par des arômes torréfiés, de café. Bien que n’étant pas désagréable, elle compense son caractère pas des arômes bruts et une force qui rappelle les scotch ale. Elle ne constitue ainsi pas mon style de bières.

Molto buona... gusto maltato con note di biscotto più che di miele... amaro delicatissimo e legnoso dato dalla radice di genziana più che dal luppolo... una birra che è stata ideata da Teo Musso... detto tutto...

Hits you at the back of your head first sip and continues for the next few. It's got the Belgian whack fruity and too strong . I got like a honey wort water . There water is so good and beer not great , why? . I see the name baladin on the back his beers are good and these lurisia beers are a miss

UPDATED: JUL 24, 2014 The category is herb but this best suit as a strong ale/belgian strong ale.
Dark amber, cloudy with a fast vanishing head, lots of clumpy yeast floating around and won’t dissolve easily. Medium body and balanced carbonation, good mouthfeel. This beer has a really white wine character to it, present in the aroma but even more at taste.
I really don’t know what gentian root taste like so i really can’t comment on its flavor.
Aftertaste is really sweet, yeasty, slightly fruity.
The winey character in my opinion is a bit too present and the alcohol is not very well hidden although the beer is only 7.2% abv, i wonder if they used champagne yeast in bottle conditioning.
Final note: i found this at 9.99€ per 75cl, i think it is a bit overpriced and other people i read on this site feel the same way

Bottiglia da 33cl. Colore ambrato quasi arancione con poca schiuma bianca di scaraa tenuta. Al naso sentori mielosi e agrumati cge si riflettono al palato con un inizio dolcino, sulffinale lascia la bocca come dopo aver mangiato una caramella molto dolce alla frutta.

I was expecting more from this distant Italian beauty. An interesting spicy malty taste which could have had more of a hops presence. Smooth but lacking something. An interesting drop but didn’t quite hot the mark.
