2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear golden color and littered with the largest amount of vegetable manner I’ve ever seen floating in a beer. Oaky vanilla on the nose with some grassy and citrusy hop noted earlier after the pour. Creamy mouthfeel with some carbonation on the rear of the palate. Sweet corn flavor, with a touch more of a sign of that oaky vanilla noted in the nose.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a medium golden color with a finger of foam. Nose is light floral malt and some honey. Palate follows with a soft palate not a whole lot going on. Drinkable but uninteresting with a simple beer flavor. Grain, light faint bitterness and lingering floral grass.

Bottle from the LCBO. Very pale cloudy yellow with a small white head. Nose is quite floral with some honey and grass as well as vanilla. Moderately sweet throughout with very light spice in the finish. Mouth is light and thin with soft carbonation. Nice and refreshing even if a little watery.

Appearance with golden color, slightly cloudy liquid and very little head.

Flavor with vegetable flavor, plant, floral, etc.
Very little carbonated, surprising, but in the end I consider a good beer.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
It has a golden honey colored body with a lightly hazy appearance. There is not much of head, just a small light foamy covering that fades out to nothing quickly. There is no lacing to mention at all. The aroma has an interesting full floral bouquet with some honey like sweetness, some light grain notes and fresh salty sea air. There is an odd dry grain with a hint of mineral flavor like sea air and a solid floral character throughout. Underneath there are some sweeter malt, honey and buttery notes that mix with the floral heather notes. The floral notes build up to the finish and add a pleasant bitterness and dryness to it. The palate is slick and smooth with light carbonation and a light to medium body.

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
The aroma was light vanilla, with mild hay. I loved the appearance, nice light orange/yellow color and mine had lots of apparently small heather flower pieces suspended in the beer. Tasted lightly sweet with hay and mild spice. Smooth and full bodied on the palate. Overall a great and different beer I would definitely recommend to a friend.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
The aroma is very faint; a little bit of honey, a little bit of peach, probably some herbs. Pours yellowish orange with a minute head. The taste is slightly sweet, even slightier bitter, spicy. Body halfway between low and medium, almost flat, finish sweet and a tad tart. Nothing special; much as I’m pleased I got a chance to taste such an ancient recipe, I’m happy we also have different ones these days.
