With its mild and fresh demeanor this one sits well with a day in the sun. Much more than that, unfortunately, it cannot deliver on. There are sweet notes of citrus and traces of something not quite unlike elderflower but they stay only shortly and leaves a pleasantly quenched thirst but little else. The bitterness of the myrica doesn’t really present itself.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pilsener pour, large frothy dense head. A: soapy, fresh grass notes, hint of tea leaves, faint hint of walnuts. T: medium bodied, bit yeasty. First tastes that come through are peppery, bit like almond paste. Development is milder, with hints of walnut and fresh grass notes, faintest floral notes. Aftertaste is mildly bitter, slightly boozy. Ok.

Bottle 33cl. Yellow gold with a medium white top. Aroma reminds me of blond beer: malts and yeast. The taste is a bit more spicy than the aroma predicts. There’s a little bit of sweetness in the aftertaste with a glow of alcohol.

Even, thin, lasting lace. Sweet, herbal aroma. Floral, and sweet yeast taste. Kind of leafy on the tongue too. Really enjoying the tea-like flavors.

11.2oz bottle, thanks to aabean for bringing this back from her cali trip and sharing. Date on the cap reads 06/06/14. Hazy orange amber color. Thin off-white head. Decent ridges of lace. Medium to bigger body. Kind of slick. Light carbonation. Very interesting sweet, herbal minty afroma, I guess that’s that myrica gale (you know, bog myrtle). Moderate sweet taste, mild bitter, less spicy than most belgian ales. Very tea-like. ginger. Enjoying it a lot more than I expected to. Pleasant to sip on.
