Wow - Apricot, kombucha, litchy nose. Very light like violets. Hazy orange color, no head, flat carbonation. Raspberry, apricot light taste. Long soft tingle at the end. A friendly and interesting beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy gold with a fair amount of white foam, it's got "cellar character" all over the nose, a nice earthy cold bricks and cobwebs aroma.Slightly tart on the palate, with a husky, seedy quality, somewhere between poppy and sunflower, with some sweetness providing backbone. Tangy and clean on the finish, with a slight oat-like aftertaste. Unique and pretty drinkable!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours clouded golden blond with a effervescent white head. Nose is sweetened fruit, spice and light earthy tones. Has a sweet taste with more fruit, particularly citrus, coming through, along with a wheat and yeast mix. I can also taste some grape in this - concord or white. To me, sort of a tripel mixed with a hefeweizen or wit. There's some carbonated sharpness to the mouthfeel but it finishes smooth enough. Very good beer!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy gold color with lots of yeast chunks on a tiny bubbled head. Light fruits and hay in the aroma, sharp mouthfeel. Starts and ends sweet, with an odd finish that reminded me of an aged dubbel. A unique brew for sure, but for $12 a bottle, this is the last one that I'll buy.

4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
This is truly a unique beer. Either you are going to *really* like it; or you'll dump it, in my opinion.
Appearnce: Nora pours a hazy golden with a large white head. The head quickly dissapates.
Nose. The aroma is quite interesting. It's a sweet/dry/herbal/floral smell. It almost reminds me of Campari. I can't quite place it, but I like it.
Flavor: It's highly carbonated, complex, and well balanced. The use of hops for bitterness is replaced by herbs and this makes a nice change.
Penso che questa birra abbia un sapore magnifico!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
dark orange glow with a creamy growing head. Aroma of peaches. Taste has a nice balance of sweet and sour with a mild yeast taste. Some liquorice in the aftertaste. Didn't really get the kamut grain - not sure what it is either.
Good alcohol strength, not hidden but not over the top.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
large yeast scent, deep blonde amber color with a thin head, sour oddly spiced citrus funk, i dont really know what to think of it, medium carbonation, there is not much else left to say kind of bland and sour esp. for $14.99

2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Dark amber, light white head. Nose is semi-sweet, like an OK white wine, with some apple notes. Flavor is odd, kind of like white wine with hints of grass; a light sweetness. Medium bitterness. Unbalanced, with weird spices, apple notes. Final analyis: Kind of icky (& way overpriced).

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Nice orange color,small white head,highly carbonated apperance,malty,hoppy aroma,slight fruit tone to it as well.Mlaty sweet taste with a slightly fruity,possible orange or lemony apperence,mild spice to it as well.there also appears to be a slight almost acidic feel to this brew,it's not bad,just different.The after taste is fruity mildly sweet with a slight hop bitterness to it and some spice jumps in to give it a very well rounded after taste showing a good complexity for this brew and making it well worth the big bucks it took to aquire it.
