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.

Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were sweetness, caramell, berries, malts, hint of tartness, moss and quite low bitterness. Aftertaste had sweetness, spruce needles, moss and low bitterness. A very different brew but also a tasty one.

Sample at ÖÖWF 2012. Interesting spiciness, hard to describe. It had a mouthfeel that reminded me of how it feels to eat kiwi. It had a meaty taste as well. Weird beer, but interesting.

On tap at temple, pours hazy orange with last creamy head and nice lacing. Awesome appearance. Flavor is eucalyptus, root beer bark, Christmas tree, mooseberries, plum, fig, mothball executives, and nice malts. Medium bodied. This one surprised me after seeing most of the ticks.
