Bottle shared with northropfrye on Easter Sunday, 2014. Smells like grassy lemon lime and tastes like the outdoors, lemon grass, a forrest and 7-UP (but not so sweet). As far as I’m concerned this beer is magical.

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. 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.

Aroma is amazing, fresh flowers, sea salt, and lemon. The taste is a bit disappointing only in comparison to the aroma. It is very light refreshing slightly bitter and dry. A very well crafted beverage, a compliment to a meal with no over powering properties.

Looks..hazy straw yellow, sml-med white head.
Smells.. Hay, citrus, floral and spice.
Tastes..a citrus fruitiness, mellowed by floral spices and clean/crisp malts.
Really is very great for the style of beer.

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.

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.

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.
