3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden opaque beer with reddish highlights. Lots of bubblies in columns. Frothy generous persistent head.
Bready yeasty smell with fruity hints; pear and peach. Subtly spiced, cardamom and cumin, I think. Reminds me of frankinsense!
Dry on the mouth with a well balanced body of sweet and sour. Watery but with well developing taste. Delicious beer.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Yellow, light golden coloured. Ok sized head, but colapses a bit to quick for sure. Nice sticking to the glass. Smell is unpleasant spices. malts, yeast. Donít like the smell. Taste is about the same, the spices used are just not my thing at all. More to put into medicins then into beer I think.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from City Beer. Pours hazy golden with a foamy white head and a honey and spice aroma. There is a sweet herbal flavor, bog myrtle I guess, with a peppery perfumed finish. A very odd brew, but not altogether disappointing.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 from Bottle Barn in Santa Rosa, CA. Pours dishwater gold with a foamy 3.5 finger white head. Aroma: bog myrtle. Been there before. Wouldnít have known the name without help, but the aroma is familiar. A Bon Secours I think. Medium body with lightly foamy carbonation. The flavor is like weird blueberry with wood. Odd flavor aside itís pretty drinkable. Much better than the other version I had. Itís a bit sweet and gingery, but thatís good considering the base flavor. You should try it. If you go back for more, you may be weird.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
330ml at Toad in the Hole. Foggy yellow with medium white head. Initial aroma of soft malt, digestif herbs, and chicken excrement. Flavor is a lot more appealing - sarsaparilla and cream soda notes come through over an almost hospital weirdness. Strong carbonation, light astringency, and a slightly sweet finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. It pours a hazy, orange body topped by a nice, off-white head. The aroma is flowery and gingery, rather boring, but far from bad. Itís a tad better than the flavor, which is sweet and fruity with flowers and a certain acidic touch. Lemony hops towards the finish. Medium body, nice carbonation level. I like it, but itís too special to be a favorite. 100326

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours golden with thick, dense white head. Aroma is pleasant graininess with citrus-like or even eucalyptus-like essential oils, mild earthiness, light spice. Flavor is mild sweetness finishing with fading mint/citrus delicately oily herbal flavors and very light alcohol astringency. Very good. Iíve had english-style gruits and they were much harsher, the belgian interpretation has a higher abv yet is much smoother and coherent.
