COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A top fermented ale brewed with gentian, a bitter flowering plant.

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.

Forcina (52) - Bellinzona, Rome, Brussels, SWITZERLAND - OCT 5, 2010
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2011 I bought a bottle in Open Baladin. I honestly LOVE gentiana liqueur but this beer is even better. The herbs aroma is deep and long, even fruity and floral (pin? resin?). The taste is complex, well balanced, the body is medium. Quite creamy. Perfect for me, I hope youll enjoy too.

Christian (13578) - Odense, DENMARK - AUG 26, 2010
Hazy golden with a lasting white head. Aroma of fruit, yeast and herbs. Sweet herbal flavour with impressions like sage, rosemary and honey, ending in an unfortunate sugary sweetness.

RBESG 2010, draught at Open Baladin
Golden color. Nice hop aroma, with just light herbs. Good body, malty, sweet; it has just a light herbal touch, not necessarily gentiane. Correct bitterness. Good.
