3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle split with JF at his gaff - the 60+ insect bites tasting, thanks to he, 09/06/13.
Lightly hazed blonde with a medium white head that retains well.
Nose is citrus, lemon rind, spice, herbs, grass, menthol notes.
Taste comprises bitter orange, lemon rind, herbs, mint leaf, citrus, grass, tangerine.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, dry finish with light bitterness, crisp and clean.
Interesting offering, not the kind of beer I’d look to revisit on a regular basis but well made and a great palate cleanser at a tasting in between bigger beers.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Medium white head over clear golden beer. Strong nose of rosemary or lavender. Very spicy - I’d guess green cardemom too. I know it’s really the lemon verbena, but that’s not a herb I use in my kitchen. Again this spice in the mouth. To me, it tastes as lavender, but a co-taster thought indeed of verbena. I’m a bit reluctant towards the flavour, but maybe in combination with algae, served on pebbles... Spice is really imposing, soapy. Finish has some grains. Spritzy, very refreshing, light body. Let’s state that it deserves a chance with the food...

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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Slightly hazy bright yellow with a very dense thick persistent white head. Aroma is floral lime, galangal, and pepper. The palate has light malts that allow the delicate spices to shine. There is a touch more floral pepper in the flavour (grains of paradise), with some cucumber green character too. Finishes with light bitterness. This really impressed me.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bouteille 37.5cl, BB 04-10-2016.
Dorée claire, col blanc crémeux laissant une belle dentelle.
Arôme offre un bouquet fleuri presque de sureau, ce dernier est très agréable et procure un bouquet assez unique. Malt pils se fait présent également.
Palais est sympa, sec avec ce côté pils et un fleuri très agréable entre sureau et citronnier. Pétillance est moyenne, palais reste sec voire poussiéreux. Fine note d’épice et de levure arrivent en fin de bouche. Franchement une belle surprise, complexe tout en restant facile à boire.
