Niente di stupefacente. Nonostante le pretese profumate della genziana, che infonde alla birra note floreali e lievemente erbacee, il gusto risulta solo superficialmente caratterizzato. Come extra si puň godere di una sfumatura amara e di un retrogusto maltato-panoso, come di marzapane dolce.

larsga (6684) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 23, 2013
Medium offwhite head. Clear yellow body. Herbal spicy aroma with mealy fruity notes. Dry-sweetish, with faintly acidic background, herbal fruity taste with persimmon notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel with faint heat at the end. Dryish herbal persimmon aftertaste with gingery notes. The taste is not very complex, but it’s still a pleasant, harmonic and enjoyable beer. (0.75l bottle, wine monopoly web order.)

Dark golden colour, white head. Aroma of candy, yeast, banana, slight herbal hint. Sweet flavour, malts, candy, hint of candied gentian root. Sweet finish, candy. The gentian does work at a certain level, it is an enjoyable brew, but the beer became a bit too candy-like for my taste.
(From 75cL bottle @ ZZT VIIIb, Oirschot 2013. Thanks for sharing, Benzai!)
