3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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
I enjoy a good meaningless stat, so here’s another one, my 50th Spice/Herb/Vegetable rating! And you thought my stats couldn’t 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.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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 that’s a long ago memory, so I could be off. It’s astringent. It’s woody. There are uncommon spices and maybe some bergamot. Grabs the attention, and it’s very refreshing.
