Strepitosa weisse aromatizzata alla genziana, al naso sviluppa aromi possenti di malto e spezie, al gusto bilanciata e speziata.

Ungstrup (29464) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 17, 2011
Draft. A hazy dark golden beer with a lazing beige head. The aroma has notes of perfumy hops and straw as well as lighter notes of malt and spices. The flavor is very sweet with notes of malt, caramel, straw, and hops.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 6, 2011
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.

thorine (37) - Indiana, USA - JAN 28, 2011
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.

FleurDeBeer (6) - USA - JAN 28, 2011 does not count
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!

gemmat5 (20) - Cuneo, ITALY - JAN 26, 2011
Spettacolare birra, simile a una weisse aromatizzata alla genziana. Alla spina dà il meglio di sè. Bevuta all’Open

flavio_b (277) - ROME, ITALY - JAN 6, 2011
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 (937) - 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.
