3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft. A hazy dark golden beer with a lazing beige head. The aroma has notes of perfumy hops and straw as well as lighter notes of malt and spices. The flavor is very sweet with notes of malt, caramel, straw, and hops.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draft at Holy Grale. Ample off-white head quickly dissipates atop this murky, dark-straw-colored pour. Aroma generally light, absent of hop notes, instead offering a clean sweetness and a hint of flowers. The flavor is also very clean, with only a hint of bitterness at the finish, and even this is accompanied by a clean, smooth, light sweetness. The palate is a little lacking for my taste, although the beer is not unpleasant in this respect.

4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
UPDATED: JUL 10, 2011 Sentori e sapori di malto, con spezie, la genziana non molto evidente, ma caraterizza bene l’aroma, che risulta incredibilmente complesso. Ottima in bocca, davvero una gran birra!

Spettacolare birra, simile a una weisse aromatizzata alla genziana. Alla spina dà il meglio di sè. Bevuta all’Open

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
On bottle at bir&fud pizzeria. The first impact with this beer reveals a floral and honey taste. Finish light and not too much persistent. I like it.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Color dorato con schiuma fine. Aroma delicato, delizioso, invitante, molto speziato e agrumato. Anche in bocca molto equilibrata, pulita, si sentono nel palato le radici, ma in maniera composta e la birra scorre via molto morbida e delicata, lasciando una bocca leggermente amarognola. Una saison rivisitata molto bene.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A: snifter. golden yellow color with a solid white head. decent retention, faint lacing. tons of sediment.
S: tons of citrus and berries. very yeasty. some slight sour notes as well.
T: very smooth flavors, no sours at all which was rather shocking from the aroma. definitely some spices thrown in this. almost tastes like how some flowers smell, like lilies. some citrus but very faint.
M: smooth and mellow. not as crisp as I thought it would be. high carbonation level, but still smooth.
D: very drinkable, but the big bottle can get old after a while. A good beer to share, but a full one is a little tiring.
