3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The rosemary here is just more pleasant on the nose than the palate. Smells like a rosemary forest. But upon drinking, one soon discovers the rosemary is truly alone. No interest from the yeast, no backing from malt, and no balance from hops. Really an interesting beer, and I am not sorry to have tried it, but it just doesn’t have the complexity that would have made it great.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
0.33 l bottle from Alko (Arkadia). Copper color. Aromas of piney rosemary and caramel. Sweet taste is dominated by earthy and piney rosemary with some resiny and gingery notes. Rounded full body. Completely overpowered by rosemary and tastes more like a fizzy herbal tonic.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Medium gold pour, decent head. Nose is light rosemary, herbs, and malt. Sweet on the tongue. Middle is the interesting part; woody, honey coated, rosemary flowers. Finish is lightly bitter and long. Not for everyday, but this beer could grow on you.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 8/20
Aroma is mildly herbal; rosemary, ginger. Floral fragrances are also present. A cloudy orangish amber pour with frothy, mostly diminishing, off-white head and clumpy lacing. The taste, like the nose is herbal with peppery ROSEMARY being the predominate flavor! Medium body with soft carbonation. Overall, refreshing, like "adult" herbal tea Not something I would drink all the time, but I would definately drink it again.

Had this beer on tap at Jester King 2nd Anniversary Party. Really surprised. Rosemary and honey were very prominent and blended wonderfully with the base. Refreshing and different.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sourish. Nice light twist of ground ginger, elder flower and maybe honey. Structurally sound. Light but apealing. Love Rosemary but I don’t get much evidence of it here as it lacks that appealing green rosemary intensity. Definitely ginger though without that gingery heat.
Interesting. A nice Spanish surprise.
