4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
750 ml. bottle. Pours a small head that fades soon, but there’s a lace all the time until you finish. Sediments are cre clearly visible. Smells like walking through a forest: pine, rosemary, lavender, eucalyptus... Fresh and creamy palate, dry finish and taste again of forest, rosemary dominates but with notes of almost of the plants you can think. Exceptional, IMO.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
It’s a big boy: 75cl and 6% and comes in a stylish, minimalist design with just a gold label attached to give any clues to its contents. Full marks for design, then. It poured a hazy amber with good carbonation and a healthy white froth on top. The aroma was promising; a little herbal with ginger spice and some rosemary.
The beer was medium-bodied and hid the strength well. Initially it seemed herbal in nature, rather sweet followed by a pepperiness. However, the rosemary soon takes hold, followed by another wave of rosemary and then more rosemary. There is something of a bittering finish, but it’s quickly replaced with, yes you guessed it, rosemary.
This beer can be summed up in one word: ROSEMARY. I like rosemary but here it completely overwhelms the malt and everything else. This is definitely a specialist beer. Interesting, yes, but although it may be a good match for pork dishes or something of a similar nature, it’s just too much on its own.

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....
