  • Hops: Cascade, Saaz, Mosaic

Brewed with the malts of a dark Hefeweizen, the yeast of a Saison, hoppy as a Porter with a lingering earthy note coming from Gentian. The nose is persistent with roasted-coffee, pear and the fruity scent of Mosaic. The taste retrace similar feelings with a final distinctive Gentian touch.

Gentian is used in Abruzzi for digestive liquors based on white wine and alcohol, each family with their own recipe. After a first hesitant sip to get familiar with its bitterness, most people get addicted to it. Here we mimic the pungent and sharp bitterness typical of this liquor balancing it with the yeast and malts flavor.
