Birra ad alta fermentazione prodotta con la purissima acqua Lurisia.

In contrast with its two sisters, Lurisia Otto is brewed only with locally produced barley malt and no unmalted cereals; the exceptionals qualities of the water give greater balance, harmonized by the bitterness of the Gentian root. It has a deep amber color, hazy, and persistent foam. In the nose there is light alcohol, clear fruity aroma and a woody touch. Harmonious taste, with pleasant carbonation; the lean body guarantees the high drinkability. It accompanies greatly both meat dishes and cheese. (Translated by fiulijn from original Italian text)

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.

09-NOV-2013, bottle @Hotel Metropolitan, Bologna, from Eataly. Pours nice hazy orange with lasting lacing off-white head. Aroma is fruit, yeast, malt, orange peel, spice. Taste the same. Very yeasty fruity. Also nice creamy bready malt with dried fruit. Creamy, soft carbonation. Long fruity aftertaste. Hint of alcohol but very fine drink.

Bottle at Del Posto. Pours kinda ugly muddy orange brown. Nose is of sweet malts and fruit stripes gum. Tastes of honey, malt, toffee, artificial fruit flavoring, and some wood. Creamy on palate. Sweet aftertaste.

Bottle of overpriced Italian garbage shared by Scott during the goodbye jcwatts tasting. Poured a muddy ugly orange/brown with tons of floaties. Aroma is sweet, wort, caramel and molasses with raisnin bread dough. Flavor is "amber", notes of caramel, wet toast, nuts, almonds, old citrus and some card board. Palate has average to fizzy carbonation over a medium mouthfeel. Meh, this is why I hate Italian beers.
