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

On draft at Holy Grale. Ample off-white head quickly dissipates atop this murky, dark-straw-colored pour. Aroma generally light, absent of hop notes, instead offering a clean sweetness and a hint of flowers. The flavor is also very clean, with only a hint of bitterness at the finish, and even this is accompanied by a clean, smooth, light sweetness. The palate is a little lacking for my taste, although the beer is not unpleasant in this respect.

kaserov (690) - Oviedo, SPAIN - MAY 25, 2017
Color bronce, translúcido, con capa de espuma blanca de tres dedos de grosor (retención decente). Carbonatación mínima. Textura acuosa. Aroma herbal, simple pero interesante. En boca herbal de nuevo, algo básica y pobre, sin mucho sabor. Postgusto dulce que no me gusta demasiado. Decentilla.

Fules (1197) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - MAY 18, 2017
Semmi hab, bronzba hajló narancs szín. Fűszeres, gyógynövényes illat. Fűszeres, gyógynövényes, gabonás ízvilág. Közepesen testes, alig szénsavas, szinte egyáltalán nem keserű. Kellemesen, visszafogottan fűszerezett sör.

Marko (5644) - 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.
