Hazy orange color, small off-white head. Grassy, leafy, cardboardish, spelt aroma. A bit tart, sweetish honey, some herbal notes in the flavor. Sweetish aftertaste. Soft palate.

Non malaccio, tutto sommato piuttosto beverina, ha qualche particolarità dovuta alla genziana ma è una birra di carattere molto sottile e non preminente, così che all’inizio l’impressione è smorzata, mentre pian piano si riesce a distinguere un tratto personale. Ma speravo in qualcosa di più incisivo da Birra del Borgo

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
First of the expensive Italian beers found at Khoury’s in Henderson, NV. Gentain? First impression makes me wish that I had access to this in Edmonton.
Poured out a bright hazy gold brew with an ok amount of white foam, leaves lots of ropy lacing and has good retention as a skim. The aroma is great with a unique sweet fruity punch, very floral and herbal. Tangerines, unsweetened berries, wet grass and an unknown herbal aroma that is new to me. Good taste as well, very balanced with all these flavours: some sort of orange, berry, weakest of pepper (maybe), grass, flowers of some sort and the mystery flavour. Medium bodied, smooth throughout even with the fine, sometimes biting carbonation. Finishes with a bit of bitterness and more orangy fruit. This was a very good beer. Would be great on a hot day.

Poured a hazy yellow color with a large white head. The aroma was spicy with notes of lemon. Lemon and spice also make up the flavor. The mouthfeel was lively with a light body.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
The aroma is floral, malty, citrusy, and spicy. The appearance is orange gold with a huge head! The flavor is like the aroma with a touch of sourness. The palate is a little thin but smooth. Overall I like it but its unusual.
