   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 12/20
ComradeK (1045) - The Vale of Dundas, - JUN 12, 2013
375ml bottle. Pours a slightly hazy medium gold, with a medium white head, which lasts well without leaving too much lacing. The aroma is dominated by lemon verbena, which gives it a herbal, citric almost sauvignon blanc character. More lemon verbena up front is combined with mild spice hops. Very light white bread and caramel malt notes in the mid-palate are again overcome by zingy lemon verbena, which persists into the finish. This is not a bad beer, although very one-dimensional. It feels like the beer itself is just there as a plinth on which to mount the herb, and it definitely feels like a beer designed for white wine drinkers. It is pleasant enough, and to give NOMA their due, it is better than Ferran Adria’s beer.

angel77 (1062) - oviedo, SPAIN - NOV 20, 2014
Botella de 37.5 cl de el rincón de la cerveza tomada el 20-11-2014 en el momento en Belmonte. ---Ingredientes: agua, malta, trigo malteado, avena, el lúpulo, verbena ( hierba de santa Isabel o de san Juan) y levadura--. Con fecha de cons pref para antes de 04-10-2016. Color amarillento con algo de poso que lo enturbia y con espuma blanca con buena retención. Aromas herbáceos y frescos cítricos. Cuerpo medio con 5 vol bastante fácil de beber y con bastante gas. Sabores herbáceos pronunciados con toques cítricos de limón y lima con bien de gas, acabando con un ligero dulzor maltoso que se nota mas al final al coger temperatura y que se mezcla con un ligero ligero amargo. No esta mal, tal vez demasiado herbácea y con gas, aunque bastante refinada. Buena, sobretodo original.

NBird (402) - Perth, West Australia, AUSTRALIA - SEP 12, 2014
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. Classy.

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.

37,5cl bottle hauled by embrouille, merci! Most aspects of this beer, especially the condensed, pure, herbal aroma, reminded me of the master cleanse days accompanied by the mild distractions of liters and liters of verbena tea: this beer has all the herbal corduroy, guava coatings and unsweet wild honey characteristics of a boiled-down verbena broth, mercifully without its diuretic effects. Like a marine herbal lemongrass/elder tonic, save the brine, save the citrus. Elegant light yeast profile, dry. Very monothematic beer executed with puristic minimalism, in line with both Mikkeller’s and noma’s culinary worldviews, I suppose, less with my own. Could have used a gently crowd-pandering citrus note, of any kind. Specialised audiences, aka upper echelon only.

DuffMan (6974) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 3, 2014
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.

Underbar aroma, svårt att Sätra fingret på den men närmsta jag kommer är väl en sommardag på en äng och en citron i handen.

Den här tillhör inte någon av mina favorit-ölstilar, men det här kan vara den bästa representanten från sagda ölstil, som jag provat i alla fall. Smaken var lätt som en fjäder med toner av mint, äpple och torkat gräs, balansen var fin och kroppen var liten men på ett passande sätt. Slutsats; kul och god öl.

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.

Someday I’d like to get to the Noma restaurant, but for now I’ll just drink the beer. Incredibly unique aroma. Lemon lime grassy herbal and floral aroma. Very interesting and vibrant. Light yellow body with white head and lacing. The taste is less strong, perhaps so it wouldn’t overpower food delicate food pairings I assume. Taste is lightly bitter and has the quality of a nice fresh tonic water or something. Quite unique.
