3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A bit boring and lacking of originality for me. The pour is a brilliant bright yellow with a thin dense white head. The nose is lightly spiced and crisp with wheat and clove notes. Sipping with a mild grainy sweetness and a fresh and clean wheat malt. The finish has a mild bitterness that lends well to the balance.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 375 ml from erzbierschof.ch. Veiled blonde, nice white and lasting head, numerous laces. Grassy and floral aromas, fresh herbs, culinary and cosmetic. Soft mouth with a taste of herb, coriander, zest, always cosmetic with hints of verbena and lemon. Stay on the grassy bitter in finale. Interesting.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 375 ml. Hazy pale yellow with a massive bubbly white head, good retention. Nose is not unlike that float soap from provence with lots of delicate floral and herbal notes. I think: Lavender, thyme, honey, ginger.Taste is medium sweet and light to medium bitter. Not unlike a saison with very low carbonation. Dry herbal finish. Odd, but sort of OK. No need to retry this, though.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle thanks to Fergus at the Pre-Zwanze. It pours golden-amber with a small-white head. The nose is spice, dough, herbal, floral and ginger notes. The taste is dough, earth, hay, citrus, pithy, floral and soapy notes with a crisp, dry finish. Medium+ body and prickly carbonation. Not something I would drink a lot of, but it is interesting and pretty well balanced. A good option to match with food.

Lightly hazy pale gold beer. Big fluffy white head. LIght crisp palate. Mild creamy malt. Minerals. Nicely judged zesty lemon fruits but not too sharp. Semi dry finish with a slightly annoying paper note. Overall a good beer though!
