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.

Clear amber, thin pale head. Aroma of freshly mown grass. Dry, malty, spiced. Not sure about this one. Gentian is a disinfectant that I’ve used to clean out people’s wounds in the emergency room.

Hazy amber beer, small white head. Floral notes and sherbet combine to give a somewhat kids sweet nose! Softish palate, semi dry. Mild carbonation. Sweet floral notes, dominate. Segues seamlessly in to sweet and mildly sherbet orange and peach. Finishes dry with the floral notes turning a little bitter. Pretty decent and unique beer which I guzzled with gusto.

cgarvieuk (26360) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 9, 2010
bottle at home ... copper ... thin lacing ... soft fruit hop ... light floral hop nose ... little over fizzy ... little vegative ... sweet hop ... little fruits ... big bitter flower in linger ... there no doubt about the flower being in there ... its quite unusual ... and quite bitter ... but a different bitterness ... i quite like this.

Bottled at Monk’s Café, Stockholm. Clear pale golden, airy head. Interesting herbal nose. Medium sweet with clean, rounded mouthfeel, Medium bodied with an interesting combination of vanilla and bitter herbs. Fresh, drinkable and intense, although perhaps a bit edgy.

Papsoe (25054) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 18, 2012
Bottle 75 cl. Pours a cloudy golden with tiny impurities and a white head. Sweet fruity nose with a little spice. Medium body, sweet fruit, a little yeast and quite a fresh spiciness. Ends dry but not really hoppy. Pleasant. 180218
