3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. A wonderful label. An interesting beer, but not quite as odd as I was expecting. Cloudy yellow, with a foamy white head. A fair bit of yeast sediment throughout. Wheat, grass, slightly sweet bread. Much like a hefeweisse in taste - more of a spicy/herb flavour up front with a more traditional wheat and banana finish. Nice.

330ml bottle from Borough Wines. Very interesting taste indeed, and aroma actually. Hard to place what it is. Fresh herbs, coriander, mint, rosehip, flora, nettle, pot pourri... ok, but not sure Iíd go for another.

Cloudy gold beer, big white head. Palate is light and crisp. Sharp minerals. Fresh herbs go well with minerally crispness. Trace of sweet citrus. Interesting beer. This has been improved upon from a recent tap taste at the Cock Tavern. Cleaner and with a touch of mint. Overall a decent herb beer.

Keg at Leeds International Beer Festival. 4.0%. Cloudy straw colour. One of the brewers invited me to guess the herb in this. The nearest I got was fennel. (Well, thats what the missus thought). He then went on to say he wanted this to taste a bit like a red sauce. I thought, oh yeah, it does too. Slightly spicy, fruity. Good job. Except later his colleague said to me, "Bread sauce, not red sauce!". Iím not really cut out for this tasting lark...
