3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours golden with medium white head. Aroma has grassiness, light, almost flowery oily garlic fragrance just barely coming through. Flavor is a little lacking in nuance, light sweetness, mild herbal flavored hop resins lingering through to the finish, definite earthy-vegetable hint of garlic as well. Nicely composed, interesting use of the spice, overall not something I would necessarily seek out, but nice triple to mull over nonetheless.

Bottle from the local bio-supermarket at home. Pours a clear golden color with a creamy white head, leaving some lacing. Aroma of spices, fruits and malts. Flavor is spicy, slightly sweet in the beginning and quite bitter and dry in the finish. Lively carbonation and a creamy texture. Quite a surprising brew, not bad.
