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.

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

Ungstrup (30009) - 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.

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.
