Birra ad alta fermentazione prodotta con la purissima acqua Lurisia.

In contrast with its two sisters, Lurisia Otto is brewed only with locally produced barley malt and no unmalted cereals; the exceptionals qualities of the water give greater balance, harmonized by the bitterness of the Gentian root. It has a deep amber color, hazy, and persistent foam. In the nose there is light alcohol, clear fruity aroma and a woody touch. Harmonious taste, with pleasant carbonation; the lean body guarantees the high drinkability. It accompanies greatly both meat dishes and cheese. (Translated by fiulijn from original Italian text)

Earthy with some caramel and fruity hints, cloudy amber with a good ocher head, medium body, low carbonation, intense sweet notes of caramel, roots, dried fruits...i like this beer.

[Bottle (11.2oz) at Eataly, NYC, Sep. 24] Pours a murky dark plum-red with a spare quickly diminishing head. Aroma (7+) of caramel malt, lots of dark fruit, light hops, light spices and some sugary sweetness. Flavour of caramel malt and dark fruit along with light hops and light spices. Alcohol is well hidden. Medium bodied. Pretty good.

Very good Belgian ale taste, it only comes across as slightly worse than some of the trappists on the palate: the bitterness lingers on for a little longer than youd like. Still its very enjoyable, but the problem as with many Italian craft beers is price: even here in Italy this costs more than most imported trappists, so no reason why you shouldnt choose the latter, really. Come on guys, sell it cheaper!

Bottle from Auchan supermarket, Bussolengo, Italy. A cloudy dark brown beer with a quickly disappearing thin white head. It has a sweet red fruity flavour with gentle currant and cherry notes and a rich malty and smooth spiced fruit finish.

Schiuma poco compatta, a bolle larghe, ma che persiste sui lati della birra, al naso si sente il caramel del malto e un dolce quasi di miele, in bocca si incontra subito il dolce del miele, sul finale un lieve amaro. Il colore un abra carico

Couleur ambre, mousse moyenne et tenant peu. Alcool fort prsent la premire gorge, suivi par des armes torrfis, de caf. Bien que ntant pas dsagrable, elle compense son caractre pas des armes bruts et une force qui rappelle les scotch ale. Elle ne constitue ainsi pas mon style de bires.

Molto buona... gusto maltato con note di biscotto pi che di miele... amaro delicatissimo e legnoso dato dalla radice di genziana pi che dal luppolo... una birra che stata ideata da Teo Musso... detto tutto...

Hits you at the back of your head first sip and continues for the next few. It's got the Belgian whack fruity and too strong . I got like a honey wort water . There water is so good and beer not great , why? . I see the name baladin on the back his beers are good and these lurisia beers are a miss

UPDATED: JUL 24, 2014 The category is herb but this best suit as a strong ale/belgian strong ale. Dark amber, cloudy with a fast vanishing head, lots of clumpy yeast floating around and wont dissolve easily. Medium body and balanced carbonation, good mouthfeel. This beer has a really white wine character to it, present in the aroma but even more at taste. I really dont know what gentian root taste like so i really cant comment on its flavor. Aftertaste is really sweet, yeasty, slightly fruity. The winey character in my opinion is a bit too present and the alcohol is not very well hidden although the beer is only 7.2% abv, i wonder if they used champagne yeast in bottle conditioning. Final note: i found this at 9.99 per 75cl, i think it is a bit overpriced and other people i read on this site feel the same way
