3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From tap at the brewpub. Pours hazy dark orange with a small off-white head. Aroma is light caramelish and herbal. Grassy, herbal and spiced flavoured. Rosemary, nettle and some liqourice. Dry, malty and spiced finish. Herbal and caramelish malty finish. Grows on me and likely the best none-hopped brew.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A Sim rate (Tap at the brewpub): Smells of sage & rosemary, thyme & coriander. Spiced like a Belgian Christmas beer. So overwhelmingly spiced. Again in the flavour itís just too spiced. Sage & rosemary again. Very Belgiany hops & malt.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft. Dark amber pour with some light head. Spices over take flavor, with some light fruit and oak flavor in the background. Rosemary and lavender spices really fill your nose.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at the Brewpub. Pours an amber body with an off white head. Lavender, ginger, and birch. Loads of spices that overshadow everything else in the beer. A flavorful explosion of spices that can be a bit overbearing with such a low ABV.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
$6.99 for a 22 oz. Bottle. Batch 1, April 2012. 5.5%. Amber in color. No head, flat Co2. Nose is all rosemary.
The flavor is an variety of ginger, rosemary and some type of odd flower. Iím not a fan of ginger root and I pick it up a lot. Doesnít help the rating.
Overall itís more like drinking a chilled herbal tea and not a.beer. This was my 2nd or third gruit and unfortunately this doesnít make me want to run out and try more of the style.
