COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Dark golden colour, white head. Aroma of candy, yeast, banana, slight herbal hint. Sweet flavour, malts, candy, hint of candied gentian root. Sweet finish, candy. The gentian does work at a certain level, it is an enjoyable brew, but the beer became a bit too candy-like for my taste.
(From 75cL bottle @ ZZT VIIIb, Oirschot 2013. Thanks for sharing, Benzai!)

Keg at The Rake. It pours a light yellow in color with a tiny head. Aroma is tea, sweet wort and honey. Body is on the thin side, like an iced tea. In fact, this stuff is really tea like. Very interesting. Dry.

Grumlig bärnstensfärgad öl med vitt skum. Doft av jäst, äpple och lätt kryddighet. Ganska söt och fruktig med kryddighet och en lättare beska.

Foffern (1877) - Bodø, NORWAY - JUL 22, 2013
Bottle at home. The colour is hazy orange with an off-white medium head. Sweet aroma of fruits, pine apple especially, spices, herbs and soda. Sweet and fruity is also the flavour with the addition of root vegetables, spices and Belgian yeast. Has a slick and rich mouth feel, and a light bitterness. A sweet and spiced ale.
