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

Marko (6104) - 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 I’ve tried, a pleasant, tasty, well balanced beer, just not flashy.

Muito aromática, amargor equilibrado e malte bem presente. Lembra uma IPA, porém menos amarga. Excelente cerveja.

HerrBierkoenig (1628) - 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 it´s 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.

martin00sr (4440) - Haderslev, DENMARK - APR 1, 2016
Tap @Open Baladin, Roma. Cloudy golden, small offwhite head. Very malty, slightly grainy aroma. A touch of orange perhaps. Flavour has malt and orange. Nice and smooth but somewhat boring.

krumbum (1109) - truckee, California, USA - MAR 20, 2016
Big soft round fruit aromas. Punch orange color ring of head. Tastes like dried fruity and wood. Nice full body.

ciocanelu (2953) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - FEB 15, 2016
Hazy orange color with creamy, white head. Aroma is grassy, herbal, like a herbal tea with camomile. Taste has very nice saison notes along the herbal component. Slightly sweet but overall really drinkable. Body is really soft and has medium to low carbonation. Really tasty and easy to drink.

DerGantzel (445) - Aarhus, DENMARK - DEC 25, 2015
Semi-clear golden appearance with fine white foam. Sweet malt aroma. Taste of marshmellow makes you thing of candy floss. High sweetness, not much bitterness. Soft carbonation, full body.
