77ships (3313) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JAN 5, 2013
375 ml. Mikkeller styled green bottle with cap served into my Mikkeller Teku @ home. Purchased @ Hopduvel – higher class beer. Brewed originally exclusively for Noma – allegedly the greatest restaurant in the world – but now apparently widely distributed. This is a beer brewed with lemon verbena with which I am personally not familiar & named after Noma’s sommelier. Other herbs appear to be used going by the ingredient list but since I do not know Danish, I have no idea which ones. It is interesting to think the kind of crowd this beer might attract, not necessarily a beer-centric one either. Appearance wise this looks like a perfection of what most people think that beer looks like, namely bright sun golden & clear with a slightly foamy, tad creamy powder white head. Smell is intensely herbal, I presume that it is entirely dominated by lemon verbena but I cannot judge about that since I don’t know how that one smells or tastes like. I am getting strong aloe vera here, botanical garden, lots of herbs, very floral, clean with rosemary & small mint-like hints with light citrus. Taste ones I am picking up similar notes, lots of aloe vera, botanical garden, rosemary, bitter floral, touch parley & mint, flowers, citrus, bakers yeast & floor, substantially bitter in the back in a herbal, slightly ester-type of way. Light, perfect carbonation. I can imagine that this would pair well with the type of dishes that Noma serves. I find this to be quite interesting, it is doing original & great things and introduces a lot of new and highly enjoyable flavours. This is frankly a brilliant beer from the Mikkeller brand in my opinion and one that I greatly enjoyed drinking.

Bottle @ il pretesto. It pours clear golden with a white head on top. It comes first something brett-like and citrus hints, then appear mint-like flavors. Interesting beer.

Effervescent golden pour. Big white head. Plenty of lacing. Minty, peppery, slight lemon. Peppery taste with plenty of malt. Citrus notes as well. Pretty good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

sebletitje (6326) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUL 14, 2013
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.

Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 30, 2012
Bottled. A yellow beer with a lazing white head. The aroma has notes of spices - must be the jernurt on a malty background. The flavor is sweet with notes of candy, herbs, malt, and caramel, leading to a dry herbal finish. Very interesting.

pintbypint (2379) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 6, 2013
375ml green bottle. Pours out a pretty standard yellow shade with some light haze. The head is very full and white, the lacing is good and sticky. Herbal and slightly grassy aroma with detectable minty, lemony notes, it’s kind of like a Ricola cough drop. Fairly light start with some slight biscuity malt, minty and herbal middle with grassy notes. Aftertaste has grain, grass, floral and herb notes with a light minty sensation on the tip of the tongue. Light in the mouth, crisp mouthfeel. This beer is at the same time slightly odd and very refreshing. Not sure what it aims to be, but I like it.

Leighton (9833) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2013
Bottle shared at the Pre-Zwanze tasting - London. Thanks to Fergus. Pours clear yellow with a light, creamy white head. Quite herbal in the nose, some lime, too. Light sweet flavor with dried herbs, some lime, dry pale malts. Light bodied with fine to average carbonation. Further dry herbs to finish, more lime, dryish dough. Pretty tasty stuff overall.

rand (1220) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 19, 2013
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.
