Shared bottle at Sigmunds place. Pours unclear golden with no head at all. Aroma is sweet caramel and fruit. Taste is moderate sweet with a dry herbal finish, too sweet for me. Sigmund (7471) - 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. Scopey (14729) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2015
Keg at Craft Clerko. It pours hazy blonde with a creamy white head. The nose is sweet, doughy, floral, grassy, herbal and white sugar. The taste is smooth, sweet, candy, honey, white bread, grass, floral, light alcohol, melon and a touch of sweet apple. Medium body, moderate carbonation and foamy mouth-feel. Sweet moderate boost golde. Tripel-esque. Too sweet for my tastes. markextrae (4424) - Alingsås, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - MAY 12, 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? FriendOfBeer (101) - Dallas, Texas, USA - NOV 22, 2014
A cloudy, lion's mane appearance. Very floral (gentian root) taste in the beginning. Clove and bread taste. Light carbonation. Fantastic unique taste that the gentian adds. Similar to a Belgian tripel.

An interesting beer because of the main ingredient but still not that interesting. Appearance has a cream colored head that was slow to settle, a little lace and a slightly hazy honey amber color. aroma is malt herbs honey yeast, hints of tart & fruit. Flavor is similar to aroma with malt and Herbs and carbonic tang and I could see a hint of woodsy character standing out more with a bit of sweetness. Body is good. You're good enough beer.

Bottle from Beer Cartel (Jan 2014). Hazy orange/amber, off white head, soapy, sugary, spicy, floral, orange peel, smooth texture, dry bitter finish. kerenmk (4751) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUL 18, 2014
Bottle shared at a tasting at Beer Market Jaffa. Thanks gunnar for the trade. Hazy amber with white head. Gentle coriander aroma, with citrus and orange peel. Bitter, sweetened orange juice taste. Medium-bodied, carbonated, juicy finish. Nice, very quaffable but not amazing.
