3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 33 cl, at Bryggens Řlbar.Clear golden with a decent white head and some nice lacings. Intense herbal nose with strong notes of rosemary and honey. As the australian bartender said: It has a nose reminding of the filling of a stuffed turkey! The flavor very much follows the nose with sweet notes of fruit, yeast, floral hops and bready malts. Medium bitter. Interesting, but a tad to sweet, especially in the finish.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light amber color out of the cute little champagne bottle with a fizzy off white head. Nose of honey and rosemary. I get a medicinal sense out of this which interferes with my enjoyment a little. Rosemary flavors with some soap, honey, and spice. Sort of like a rosemary scone. Too much carbonation on the tongue. Interesting beer....

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle-conditioned 330ml. lightly hazed amber body with a very thin white head and little retention. heavy ginger and star anise / licorice nose with minimal malt or hop expression and only a light doughy yeastiness. medium body, medium sweetness, low bitterness, medium to medium-high acid. very much like ginger ale in the flavor, and if it weren’t for the barely-noticeable alcohol and round, chewy body, I would guess blind that this is soda. it’s effervescent, sweet and spicy with no noticeable hop flavor but some bitterness. I’m really surprised to see no ginger in this beer at all, but I can see how the rosemary gives a similarly spice / root / bitter vegetable leaf (bay leaves?) flavor. can’t say it’s something I enjoy that much, but it’s made rather well, no noticeable flaws. a little too sweet for my liking, and unidimensional ginger (i mean rosemary) flavor throughout.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pretty gold with a little lacing. Nose started out as rosemary with some greeneness and honey then got a bit stinky. Drinks almost like an IPA with the honey rounding out the mouthfeel then black pepper spiceyness and some rosemary then a honey sweetness and more black pepper. Quite interesting and much better than what it’s rated.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
33 cl, bottle. Copper color; head size is average; creamy and quite long lasting; diminishes into a compact and wide film. aroma is a punch of rosemary and honey. body is alcoholic, oily mouthfeel, low carbonation. The rosemary taste seemed too overwhelming to me. Not very well balanced.
