2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Immediate gushng upon opening gets rid of a small glass worth of beer. Despite the relentless foambuilding, hardly any head in the glass... ominous. Fully hazy amber beer. Sour nose with clear lavender, acids, citrus. Some other strange aroma that I tend to correlate to the heather. Sour, with a resiny background (again the heather?). Lavender retronasal up in force. Bitterness - probably more the dandelion than hops. Light body, acidthinning and -burn. Letís say it are the flowers that make it Interesting, rather than the other dread I-word.

Sample at Zythos 2014. Yes, it is sour and flowery. Rose petals, sour fruit, balsamico. Maybe a bit too flowery?
