3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Gold in colour and well carbonated. Floral and grassy hop aromas are there, as well as a bit of malt and a hint of sulfur. It has a nice clean bitterness and a slightly nutty flavor quality. There are some light malt and very mild fruit notes as well. It would make a great lawnmower beer. Thanks to Lubiere for this surprising sample.

Haz orange with a white head that dissapates quickly. Aromas are light mandarin and spices. Flavours are mellow and wheaty with citrus tang and yeast. Has a nice, gentle, fruity finish - especially apricot and pear. Pretty good.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
[At Fete de la Biere 2004, Lausanne] An orange beer with a white head. The aroma is very faint, what is there is spicy with coriander standing out. The flavor is spicy again with coriander being the most dominant on a sour background.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slightly astringent and chalky yeast bows to tempestuous dry hay...Sweet malt vows to elevate the powdery herbs to the creamy and ample mouthfeel...A refreshing and eclectic blonde, probably brewed with a few different grains than barley...

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle-conditioned Hazy golden hue with a superb white head, huge and rocky. Apparently very high carbonation. Aroma is more expressive than I anticipated, there’s a gentle spicy (oregano, sage) and lightly floral hoppiness that accompanies the grainy malt aspect. Lemony, toasty, herbal, it could be a pilsner mixed with a spicy bière de garde. Palate is lightly crisp with high carbonation, very herbal/grassy with a pilsner-like dry bitterness in the finish. Moderate traces of buttery diacetyl. It’s not too good, but surpasses expectations.
