3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
650ml bottle. Clear orangey deep golden colour with average foamy firm lacing white head. Fruity aroma with mandarin, citrus, lemongrass - late the mate explicitly shines up. Taste has trouble to present some fruit notes before an initially tolerable bitter note gains weight, that almost ruins the taste in the end by drowning everything else in a flood of soap and unpleasant acerbity. Demands habituation. Therefore the "almost".

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
10th May 2012
Bottle from Olbutikken, Copenhagen, shared with Lorna, Paul and Jason in my hotel room. Light haze on this amber beer, small white head. Palate is light and a little dry. Subtle floral notes. Mild citrus, a little minerally orange. Something else going on that is hard to pin down which I guess is the Yerba Mate. Dry finish. Interesting beer without being particularly moorish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, thanks to Ken at a pre-Sour & Bitter hotel tasting. It pours golden orange, with a thin white head. The nose is sweet orange, tangerine, mango, floral, spice and herbal notes (Yerba Mate?). The taste is floral, citrus pith, straw and herbal notes akin to matcha tea, with a bitter-dry finish. Medium body, moderate carbonation and foamy mouth-feel. Doesn’t do much for me....

Bottle 65 cl. Clear golden with an off-white head. Spicy aroma - quite exotic. Medium-bodied, sweetish fruit and again these fairly exotic flavours - must be the Yerba Maté. The finish is dry. Interesting. 280412
