Bottle. A bitter blonde with herbal aroma. Salvia is present on swallowing and gives a nice touch to it. Besides that it is a blonde rather on the malty meaty side.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Hazy golden with a medium sized white head with good retention and lace. Nose has spices, herbs, flowers, dry wood, sage. The flavour is also spicy yet not as much as the nose suggests. Sage, herbs, wood, dry flowers, forest, hay. Light/medium body, oily texture, lively carbonation, mild sweet, light acidic and bitter. Dry finish with some bitterness and lingering spices. A bit too much spice rack for me.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled 330 ml. swing-top bottle @ “Vini Birre Ribelli 2015”. Hazy citrus, small white head. Nose is milky sour lemon, fizzy with ginger & ginseng. Taste is watery ginger, ginseng, hay, floral, lactic, lemon,… Body is a bit watery, thin & fizzy. Not for me. Odd & not really successful. BFM has the BFM Abbaye de Saint Bon-Chien series which is simply brilliant but otherwise?

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml bottle from Drinks of the World, Basel (5.20 CHF):
Quite lively & spicy with strong carbonation but still balanced & easy to drink. It was a beer that grew on me the more I had of it & it seemed refreshing in places with the citrus balancing the pale malts & spice whilst adding some to the complexity; certainly one of the nicer spiced beers I’ve tried.

Smell of fruity yeast esters, banana, light malts, spices. Light sweet, dry, light malts, super fruity. Moderate bitter finish. Comparing with other beers from BFM this one stands out as one dimentional and boring
