A top fermented ale brewed with gentian, a bitter flowering plant.

Una delle “birre del territorio” del birrificio. In questo caso l’ingrediente principe sono le radici di genziana che provengono dalla cooperativa Micillo di Consigliano. Le radici sono utilizzate in un’infusione della durata di 2 minuti durante le ultime fasi della bollitura. La birra al naso è dominata da sentori pepati, di sottobosco e floreali. In bocca il primo impatto è mieloso, seguito da sentori di radici, pepe e frutta a polpa gialla. Il retrogusto è delicato ma molto persistente.

750ml Bottle: Top came off with a huge "POP" followed by significant gushing. Aroma of fruit, flowers, melon, and some gentian. Poured golden/amber in color with a huge, foamy, loose, frothy, off-white head that diminished but lasted throughout. Cloudy. Very sparkling. Full of tons of tiny and small particles throughout. Flavor is medium to heavily sweet. Tastes of fruit, melon, peach, flowers, and sugar. Light to medium body. Slightly thin texture. Average to slightly lively carbonation. Fruit, melon, peach, finish is medium sweet.

On draft at Holy Grale. Ample off-white head quickly dissipates atop this murky, dark-straw-colored pour. Aroma generally light, absent of hop notes, instead offering a clean sweetness and a hint of flowers. The flavor is also very clean, with only a hint of bitterness at the finish, and even this is accompanied by a clean, smooth, light sweetness. The palate is a little lacking for my taste, although the beer is not unpleasant in this respect.

On tap at the Holy Grale in Louisville Nose of light pilsner malt and no hops. Nice herbal bitter flavor and bitter finish. Clean finish similar to a lager. Would be great with food

Labove (427) - Rome, ITALY - JAN 28, 2011
UPDATED: JUL 10, 2011 Sentori e sapori di malto, con spezie, la genziana non molto evidente, ma caraterizza bene l’aroma, che risulta incredibilmente complesso. Ottima in bocca, davvero una gran birra!

Spettacolare birra, simile a una weisse aromatizzata alla genziana. Alla spina dà il meglio di sè. Bevuta all’Open

On bottle at bir&fud pizzeria. The first impact with this beer reveals a floral and honey taste. Finish light and not too much persistent. I like it.

Wolfbass (1101) - Firenze, ITALY - JAN 2, 2011
Color dorato con schiuma fine. Aroma delicato, delizioso, invitante, molto speziato e agrumato. Anche in bocca molto equilibrata, pulita, si sentono nel palato le radici, ma in maniera composta e la birra scorre via molto morbida e delicata, lasciando una bocca leggermente amarognola. Una saison rivisitata molto bene.

A: snifter. golden yellow color with a solid white head. decent retention, faint lacing. tons of sediment. S: tons of citrus and berries. very yeasty. some slight sour notes as well. T: very smooth flavors, no sours at all which was rather shocking from the aroma. definitely some spices thrown in this. almost tastes like how some flowers smell, like lilies. some citrus but very faint. M: smooth and mellow. not as crisp as I thought it would be. high carbonation level, but still smooth. D: very drinkable, but the big bottle can get old after a while. A good beer to share, but a full one is a little tiring.

bottle at home ... copper ... thin lacing ... soft fruit hop ... light floral hop nose ... little over fizzy ... little vegative ... sweet hop ... little fruits ... big bitter flower in linger ... there no doubt about the flower being in there ... its quite unusual ... and quite bitter ... but a different bitterness ... i quite like this.
