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 it’s just too spiced. Sage & rosemary again. Very Belgiany hops & malt.

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.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at EBF 2010. Pours a nice hazy medium copper- a bit darker than some gruits- decent head which fades a bit. Aroma is earthy, herbal, lightly spicy, very flowery with ginger, grass, rosemary, almost a lemongrass hint, and a bit of lavender- light toasted malts and mineral. Flavor is a bit funked out, toasted malts, earth, mineral, grassy, flowery- almost a hibiscus fruity flower pepper, herbs, with a bit of mustiness. Flavor is mostly clean- a bit of astringency and bitter from the herbs and spices but is pretty nice overall.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours deep mahogany into a Sam glass. Mocha head with good retention crackles and recedes leaving no lacing. Sweet summer herb aromas. Slightly tart front to back with earthy caramel and bread upfront turning to mild lasting herb finish. A nice change.
