I liked this one at Jimacks. Very different. Nose is very floral with some sour berries. Taste is very complex and screams food. Must have been brewed with the kitchen sink, a little bit of this and that. Not luck on the brewers part, I believe they aimed and hit the target. Bottle says violets, roses, and elderberries. Now I don’t get roses or violets specificly but some flowers for sure. Thanks beastie.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - SEP 7, 2008
Bottle at Carolina Crew tasting. Saw this on sale at Sam’s and was put off by all the spices. Overall, though, this was a very solid beer. Cloudy bright orange pour with white head. Tart aroma. Citrus, rosehips, vegetable notes. Some bread. Solid, and a nice low-alcohol beer. Great way to start off the night.

Bottle. Pours light amber yellow body with a light head. Floral notes, elderberries and a hint of honey. No etoh noticed. Light pilsner malt and a tart sweetness.

A nice flowery citrus aroma. This has some crazy floral bite to this. Very tangy with a lot of citrus. Mostly just strange. No way to accurately describe this and I’m not sure if I like it.

Heavy white head, dark orange pour. Smells sour, lambicy fruity, of orange. Tastes light, spicy, floral and weird. Light mouthfeel, semi-watery. Tasted like those old-fashioned violet candies.

25.4oz bottle-shared by jtclockwork-pours cloudy/hazy gold with a light tan head. Aroma is berry, spice/herbal/floral, light/medium malt. Taste is soft berry with some tart, herbal/lemon hops, honey, light/medium malt-bready. Not as much going on here as the nose. Soft carbonation, easy.

Silvan7 (676) - Samarate, ITALY - APR 23, 2013
Bottle @ home, from the brewery. Il profumo è delicatissimo e incredibilmente ampio. Si passa dalla pasta frolla al burro, al miele ai fiori, ogni annusata mi sembrava diversa. Il colore è un giallo carico decisamente torbido, con una morbida schiuma ampia e vaporosa, di breve durata. In bocca è acidulata & dolce, velluata, decisamente saporita di miele e stuzzica la lingua con una punta quasi piccante. I fiori si avvertono più al naso che all’assaggio. estremamente fresca ha un livello alcolico bassissimo, come tenue e la luppolatura.

Looks like I’m the first one outside of Italy to rate this beer. Big, 1 liter swingtop bottle. Hazy orange color with a medium off white head. Spicy, floral aroma with a bit of citrus and a touch of celery. Mildly tart flavor, with the spices and floral aspects somewhat muted. Citrusy and quite refreshing. Most who sampled this with me at the HW open house initially thought the beer kind of boring. After a while however, the beer started to become much more enjoyable. Perhaps it was due to the fact that it was 90 degrees outside and were drinking some big beers, but it was a nice change of pace.

iowaherkeye (2691) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - JUL 21, 2006
Had this one for a couple weeks, as it seems it’s now available in the US. 1L bottle. Pours a hazy orange with a huge creamy eggshell head. Aroma is sour fruits and a little funk--kinda saison-y, some floral aromas, misc spices. Flavor is quite tangy--maybe from the elderberry (I haven’t had elderberries in years, so I can’t remember their taste)? Some dust is also in there with some grassy hops, this doesn’t get very bitter. Biscuity finish. Very light bodied, highly carbonated. Nothing exceptional, but not bad by any means. In fact, pretty good.

Bottle sample at Union Beer Trade Tasting, NYC. Honey-golden colour with a small white head. Aroma is very floral - lots of rose, clover and honey. Flavour is light, with similar floral notes to the flavour but more subdued. Fairly simple, but a nice & unique beer.
