ben4321 (5359) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 20, 2011
Location: Draft at La Trappe Cafe & Trappist Lounge, 5/12/11

Aroma: The nose is a rather interesting combination of lemon, dough, hay, and wormwood
Appearance: The pour is a hazy golden-orange color, fairly large, fluffly white head
Flavor: The taste is rather complex with an interesing mix of sweetness and barnyard
Palate: The body is medium, it has a pretty decent mouthfeel, and barnyard/yeasty finish to it
Overall Impression: I enjoy a good meaningless stat, so hereís another one, my 50th Spice/Herb/Vegetable rating! And you thought my stats couldnít get more useless! This was a really interesting beer. It was really complex, and yet rather enjoyable. The wormwood gives it an almost brett-like feel, which I rather enjoyed. This was some pretty good stuff.

bhensonb (13522) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 20, 2011
Bottle from Hi Time. Pours lightly hazy gold with a creamy 3 finger white head that collapses in dimples. Aroma of spicey cooked light fruits. Flavor is reminiscent of absinthe/wormwood, but thatís a long ago memory, so I could be off. Itís astringent. Itís woody. There are uncommon spices and maybe some bergamot. Grabs the attention, and itís very refreshing.

Then aroma has spices, malt, sugar, yeast, and a touch of paper. The appearance is pale gold with a nice fluffy head. The taste is like the aroma with an herb bread taste up from and a dry hoppy finish. The palate is smooth. Overall this is interesting.
