2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draught @ Borefts 12. Clear yellow color, small white head that leaves a fair lacing. Smell fingerpaint, weirdness, herbs, spices and slightly sweet. Taste is moderately sweet, grass, weirdness I guess herbs or spices again. Aftertaste had a light bitterness with some kind of flowers and lightly metal. No, not my beer this one. Low to medium body, a bit watery, slightly fizzy carbonation.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Keg @ Borefts 2012. The pour’s light gold with a small white head. The nose is strong sweet herb garden and grass. The taste is very strong herbs, huge medicinal garden patch sweetness. Some honey and yeast. Very interesting, but a small pour is more than enough! The moosegrass dominates the taste. Not particularly balanced. Overall, a novel idea (sort of like a strong herbal tripel) that doesn’t quite come off.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a clear golden color with a white head. Smells really odd. Lots of plastic, chlorine, and lavendar aromas. A bit of soap, some bread sweetness, maybe a bit of hibiscus, too. The flavor is sweet malt, apple, and a lot of the same floral lavendar and hibiscus notes. Not as much in the way of the chlorine or plastic.
