Pours yellow, not extraordinary head, flower scent found in the smell as in the taste, good body, pleasant beer but too much flower flavour for my taste

250 ml. draft @ Chez Moeder Lambic Fontenais. Light hazy orange, big creamy white head. Nose is very weird, very sweet, huge vanilla, very sweet flowers, candy sugar, it is very sweet but not malt or sugar sweet, vanilla, flowers & orange like sweetness, almost grenadine level of sweetness. Taste is hugely sweet vanilla, cinnamon, sugar, lots of gelatin orange candy, sweet bark, hugely sweet flowers,… Body is oddly not heavy. Very interesting, I liked but it was too much all the same. Description: “A top fermented ale brewed with gentian, a bitter flowering plant.” -> How in the world does this taste so sweet then?

A cloudy, lion's mane appearance. Very floral (gentian root) taste in the beginning. Clove and bread taste. Light carbonation. Fantastic unique taste that the gentian adds. Similar to a Belgian tripel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

drpimento (2403) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 25, 2014
An interesting beer because of the main ingredient but still not that interesting. Appearance has a cream colored head that was slow to settle, a little lace and a slightly hazy honey amber color. aroma is malt herbs honey yeast, hints of tart & fruit. Flavor is similar to aroma with malt and Herbs and carbonic tang and I could see a hint of woodsy character standing out more with a bit of sweetness. Body is good. You're good enough beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
