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.

Lubiere (12689) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 23, 2012
A hazed golden ale with a thin white head, a bit lifeless. In aroma, a strange mix of fruity esters, wild grass, light sulfur, and ricolla candies. In mouth, a strange sweet candy sugar with lemon, Ricolla, a tad unfermented, OK. Bottle from Total Wine Summerlin for 2.99$, about 1 month old.

Part of the Downtown LA Beer Crawl Italian Beer seminar led by Tomm Carroll. Quite interesting and so different even factoring in the oddity of some Italian ingredients. Nose is very floral and the taste is light and refreshing with some herbal notes.

Leighton (18074) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2012
Bottle shared with cousins on Martha’s Vineyard, MA. Pours cloudy gold with a light, white foam head. Aroma holds some tangy grass. Medium sweet flavor, mild white bread, some lemon and faint herbal bitterness. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet finish of doughy malts, touches of tangy herbs and lemon, light grassy bitters. Lasting doughy malts. Kind of interesting, and decent.

rondphoto (3867) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - AUG 4, 2012
Hazy gold with particles of sediment. Nice, crisp white head, big streaks of lace. Looks good. Autumn grass and caramel malt are infused with delicate spices. Flavor grows pleasantly to a light bitter finish that lingers for just a moment. A superior summer brew, well worth seeking out. Highly recommended.

Radek Kliber (7086) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JUN 14, 2012
Bottle 750 ml
Aroma mild hint of spice. Some heat, sweet bottom, phenolic base.
Appearance pours as amber-gold with medium white cap.
Flavor and Palate : frontal harshness of spice, strong phenolic notes in wrong way. Medicinal, vegetal with some sulphuric follow up. Flawed, not very drinkable. Bad bottle?
