3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Powerful lavender aroma with up front with the rest of the spices playing a supporting role only. Taste much like aroma with a orangey yeasty character. Kind of a cloying finish, even though there is supposedly hops for bittering. Good in small quantities, but too sweet and unbalanced to drink a lot of.

Un verre de dégustation au Saint-Bock. Une blonde un peu embrouillée et un col mousseux plutôt blanc. Les arômes et les saveurs : un mélange de plantes grimpantes et d’aromates, de lavande et de fleurs odorantes, de céréales mielleuses et de farigoule avec de l’anis et une touche de poivre. Une bouche de bonne dimension avec un apport modéré des bulles et une texture huileuse. Une finale parfumée qui est loin d’être désagréable. Cette proposition m’étonne.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle (600 ml). Split 3-ways.
Appearance: Clear bright golden with a medium diminishing white head and little lacing.
Aroma: Strong lavender presence at first followed by rosemary and thyme. There’s not much else than the italian herbs mix here.
Taste: Burst of lavender/floral presence at first followed again by an italian herbs mix. The malt backbone is effective enough to support the herbal spices but there’s not much else here either.
Palate: Medium body. Medium carbonation. Lingering herbal spices finish.
Overall: Not easy to drink at all because of all the spices and herbs, but still a pretty interesting beer in small quanitity. Similar profile to Annedd’Ale. Unidimensional.

Bottle. Strange spicy aroma, with some wood. Sweet taste, kind of like root beer or sarsaparilla. Can definitely taste the rosemary and thyme; very herbal.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
spicy sweet kinda smell. Some orange to the look but mostly like a pale ale lager look. Crabinaded & some head. You can really smell the thyme and lavander and ever sip is like smelling potpure it leaves some spice of the rosemary and thyme on the tounge with some lavander but is also a sweet maltyness, a little peppery on throat medium to heavy bodied and after a while a little warmth. Well made beer interesting and not bad. Best for sipping and sampling not having in large amounts type beer. Cheers.

600ml bottle shared with family in law. Aroma: lots of spices including thyme, cooked vegetables. We can?t taste much more. App: clear golden with minimal white head. Taste and palate: medium body, dry bland finish. Overall: pretty meh. Not really good. Nose is way too much on the spicy side, overwhelming.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle - 600ml. Beautiful golden cloudy body with an average white foamy head. Fresh flowery aroma with spicy, malty, citrusy, and herbal hints. Its very herbal taste carries ginger, lavender, and piney notes. Ends with a slightly harsh lavender finish. Very honest work to create this decent example of gruit.
