4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at Bank Street. Spicy floral citrus aroma, reminds me quite a bit of rose geranium. Clear golden with a large white head. Just like the aroma, the flavor was very rose geranium .. spicy floral citrus, with a light malty backbone. Light body. I found this unique and very enjoyable. Glad I got a bomber to take home.

Another fine "New Albanian" brew that I purchased from Liquor Direct in Covingron. KY - Yo, this is a most berrycentric blonde (I knew a lady like that before).. it’d a good beer, just not my taste and style,.

22 ounce bottle. Served in a tulip, the beer pours a slightly hazy orange/amber color with a half inch off-white head that didn’t stay around for too long. There’s a small amount of lacing. Aroma is nice, it smells like honey/blue agave, lemongrass, citrus, apples and some peppery spice. The brew tastes like honey/blue agave, peppercorns, lemongrass and some citrus. I liked the taste of this brew more and more the longer I drank it. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it’s a bit slick and smooth with low carbonation. I think this is a good overall brew, I liked it.

22 oz bottle, not a ton of carbonation left, though it wasn’t flat. Poured an opaque orange-brown. Smelled almost-flowery, maybe some rose in the scent. Flavor was very sweet and nearly syrupy, had a very thick mouthfeel with a bit of the flower flavor as well. I don’t know where I got the flower from. Enjoyable.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear orange with a thin white head. Aroma of bready malt, floral perfume, light fruits, herbal notes. Flavor of herbal tea and light fruits up front followed by a very bready finish. The sweet agave is pretty faint here, doesn’t overpower the beer. Plenty of herbal/floral notes abound. Interesting and tasty saison.

Clear medium amber with a long-lasting white head and swaths of lace. Taste begins with malt and biscuit that grows sweeter through the palate, finally allowing a touch of hops bittering to bring things into balance. A full-bodied saison, exceptionally well done.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber: pours dark, clear amber with a little white head.
Aroma is powerfully floral and sweet...Roses.
Taste is rose, flowers, spice, agave, yeast.
This is a very different beer.
Slightly peppery, sweet tea.
I’m impressed....and not sure how to adequately describe it. Shrubber said "citronella"...the more I think about it, I do believe he’s right...a slight waxiness to it....beeswax?? whatever, I like it.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle from Louisville Beer Store in Louisville, KY. Pours a mostly clear, orange-gold colored body with a finger-width, frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is flowery with soft agave giving off just a light sweetness, lemon-grass, and pepper as advertised. Clean pils malts with a bit of a doughiness and a light yeast spice. Flavor is similar. Very floral up front with a nice black pepper note and a light lemon-grass. Touches of yeasty spice in the middle with a clean, somewhat grainy and doughy pils maltiness. Light agave note towards the end that helps this dry cleanly with a lightly spiced bitterness. Medium length aftertaste following a light-medium body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a pretty nice beer. Simple, clean pils malts with a pleasant flowery quality throughout as well as a light black pepper and lemon-grass. Enjoyable.
