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 č dominata da sentori pepati, di sottobosco e floreali. In bocca il primo impatto č mieloso, seguito da sentori di radici, pepe e frutta a polpa gialla. Il retrogusto č delicato ma molto persistente.

Pours gold with a small head. Nose shows floral, herbal and soft fruity notes (apples, pears). Underneath is very faint honey and bready malt. Very floral flavours too, with what is presumably the gentian taking centre stage. Underneath is bready malt, honey and spicy hops. Carbonation is nicely high.

Growler. Gold with a modest white head that’s soon gone. Aroma of oranges, peaches, bitter herbs, licorice. Sweet with stone fruit, oranges, gentle herbal bitterness, pepper, licorice. A somewhat exotic golden ale that’s a bit oversweet for me.

vanvenlo (1682) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - MAY 20, 2012
19-May-12 - Slowbeer on tap - Ginseng-ginger earthy citrus aroma. Cloudy deep amber colour, nice head and fluffy lacing. Starts with a lemonade flavour when cool, but opens to a lovely complex herbal sweet earthy apricot bitter finish and subtle ginseng like herbal aftertaste. Impressed with the crafting of this beer, along with the complexity of flavours.

En frisk, blommig och balaserad ale. Smak av honung, örter, trä. En trevlig bekantskap.

Bottle, bought @ Mundus, city vest, Aarhus.
Pours hazy pale yellow-amber with a firm, staying, creamy, white head. Aroma is very floral, malty sweet, doughy, hay, a bit of mint and peach. Thistle as well. Highish carbonation, fine dryish and light mouthfeel. Flavour is simple, doughy malts sweetness, some hay-like earthy bitterness and an underlying, elegant herbiness with bog myrtle, mint, oregano notes. Fine lingering dryness with some bitterness.

Ormai non ho piu’ parole per desrivere le birre di Di Vincenzo.... Anche questa ottima da morire, ogni volta che ne apro una nuova rimango sempre stupito ed estasiato! I voti parlano da soli, per sapere quanto e’ buona vi consiglio di assaggiarla!

12oz bottle from Chan’s Wine World in Destin Florida. Pours a pretty golden , clear yellow with a creamy white head. Nose is yeasty and citrusy with a slightly musty nose. Taste is slightly sour, creamy and tart with a hop bitterness that shows through just enough. Wow. Really beautiful beer.
