Una delle birre del territorio del birrificio. In questo caso lingrediente principe sono le radici di genziana che provengono dalla cooperativa Micillo di Consigliano. Le radici sono utilizzate in uninfusione della durata di 2 minuti durante le ultime fasi della bollitura. La birra al naso dominata da sentori pepati, di sottobosco e floreali. In bocca il primo impatto mieloso, seguito da sentori di radici, pepe e frutta a polpa gialla. Il retrogusto delicato ma molto persistente.

Marko (5528) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - JAN 6, 2017
Bottle, Reggina del Formaggio, Split, shared with heavy. Murky amber body with almost no head. Light aroma, marmalade basically, light herbal touch, soft, quite Belgian. The taste goes along the same lines. Slightly thin, it carries lovely citric (orange), vaguely flowery notes and classic Belgian Blonde notes with a vague herbal touch. Very vague. Not sure what gentian brings exactly and how big an effect it has on the taste, but this is one of the best Borgos Ive tried, a pleasant, tasty, well balanced beer, just not flashy.

HerrBierkoenig (1418) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUL 4, 2016
0,33l bottle from Damian Bottle Shop, Bratislava, BBD: 03 2018 Pours almost clear goldne liquid, small soapy white head, Aroma: spicy, herbal, root vegetable, after a while floral, Taste: medium sweet, light bitter, light to medium sour, lemony, herbal, flowery, body is caramel to grainy, strange, making me feel it gone bad - sour, but perhaps its beacause of the gentian, Palate: medium body - even watery like, soft carbonation, slick mouthfeel, long flowery sour aftertaste, Overall: did not realy enjoyed. Interesting, but much on the sour side, body tending to watery, strange.
