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.

Diabobale (493) - Vallata, SUD ITALIA, ITALY - JUL 23, 2015
Gradevole birra seppur disarmonica. La versi e al solo esame visivo la bocceresti subito: dorato molto molto torbido con troppe particelle in sospensione, nonostante non avessi versato il fondo. Schiuma bianca, scarsa per la verit e abbastanza evanescente. Al naso per il sentore di genziana molto elegante e si sposa bene con quella del cereale. Lalcol molto ben nascosto. In bocca arriva con la giusta carbonazione ed gradevole, anche perch nel riscaldarsi rilascia anche note fruttate (banana, pare abbiano usato un lievito da weizen). Finale di amaro leggerissimo, per un una bevuta pulita nonostante tutto e un retrogusto gradevolissimo di freschezza.

Sigmund (7224) - Tau, NORWAY - JUN 6, 2015
750 ml bottle, as Birra del Borgo Genziana con radici, from Vinmonopolet. BB date March 2015. ABV is 6.1%. Clear deep golden colour, moderate white head. Strong sweetish malty and herbal / vegetable aroma. The flavour is also quite sugary sweet, notes of malts, caramel, herbs and vegetables (the radishes, I assume). Low bitterness. Not really my cup of tea. Drank it moderately chilled - might be more refreshing ice cold.

77ships (9184) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAY 1, 2015
250 ml. draft @ Chez Moeder Lambic Fontenais. Light hazy orange, big creamy white head. Nose is very weird, very sweet, huge vanilla, very sweet flowers, candy sugar, it is very sweet but not malt or sugar sweet, vanilla, flowers & orange like sweetness, almost grenadine level of sweetness. Taste is hugely sweet vanilla, cinnamon, sugar, lots of gelatin orange candy, sweet bark, hugely sweet flowers, Body is oddly not heavy. Very interesting, I liked but it was too much all the same. Description: A top fermented ale brewed with gentian, a bitter flowering plant. -> How in the world does this taste so sweet then?
