beerisgoodforu (992) - Nørresundby, DENMARK - AUG 12, 2011
Bottle. Pours a nice slightly hazy golden yellow color with a frothy bright white head. Aroma is very sweet with some pear, citrus, along with loads of floral and earthy notes and some breadiness. Smells kind of like a Belgian Ale. The flavor is again quite sweet and sugary, with the floral and earthy gentiana notes, I also get some citrus, breadiness and an almost yoghurt taste. The body is medium with a lightly glossy/sticky mouthfeel. Overall quite an interesting beer because of the gentiana root.

tabernae (178) - Latina, ITALY - JUL 30, 2011
Alla spina. color oro, schiumta bianca soffice e lunga, talmente abbondante che la birra nel bicchiere non c’era quasi. prime rimostranze... altro bicchiere, stavolta servita meglio. al naso piacevolem mix di erbe e frutta, al palato e dolce e speziata, a dire il vero il mio primo ricordo è stata la spuma che bevevo da bambino, chissà se nella spuma la genziana c’è? comunque in questa birra la presenza si fa sentire, ma caratterizza la birra senza invadenza. vermanente piacevole, anche per chi come me non ama particolarmente queto genere.
