2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
My beloved says that it deserve points for being green and smelling like beer. She said it was the funnest beer she’s ever seen. Personally, to mee it looks like either a Berliner Weisse or like a previous commenter said, absinthe and lemonade. It looks odd. It smells like some sort of evil lemon lime and bitters. There is a definite resonance with an aroma in my memory, but I can’t quite put my finger on what it is. It tastes sweet, like lemonade with lime and lemons. Not like beer at all. This beer deserves points for making my Mrs happy if anything.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle 330ml from King&Godfree. Pretty average taste, I don’t like the artificial colour. Aromas of citrus and grass. Taste is sweet, with light bitterness, and short-lived. Palate is oily, with a medium body. Green! With a thin head.

14/II/2012 75cl bottle @ Klaas’ place - BB: 13/VI/13 (2012-123) Thanks to Klaas for sharing the bottle!
Clear green beer (?), small white head, unstable, dissipates quickly. Aroma: all marijuana upon opening the bottle, seriously. In the glass more of the same, accompanied by lemon and green herbal aromas. MF: soft carbon, light body. Taste: very sugary sweet, herbs, lime, lemon, lemon zest, soapy. Aftertaste: sweet, bit fruity, little bitter. Didn’t finish.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
With Ogi & Maja. Unnatural pale green body, tiny white head. Skunk attack, Tuborg Green class, as Ogi put it, when it was poured, but the aroma turned to be vaguely herbal, soft, sticky, sweet and dull. Joy! Taste? Sweetish creamy, vaguely tart shit. Bready, kinda. Not offensive, mind, and if I didn’t have a good genepi beer just before, I would’ve rated it higher, maybe, it’s gimmicky, too gimmicky and tastes like a sweetened pale lager.

Une très belle couleur verte. Et sur la longueur le goût du génépi est bien là. Nous trop présent ni trop absent.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle looks good, beer in the glass more like lemonade than beer. Starts mild, spicy-grasy, with some exotic notes, a bit moldy. Finish still mild, not very "beery", tastes more like lemonade with spices. Not so good!

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
bottle form La Cervoiserie
pours green, light white head.
aroma, rather simple, not sure how the Génepi floral is put into the brew, the beer has a mild floral/moss nose along with some citrus.
flavors was disappointing. Given this is a brewery that prides itself in using Alps-Mont Blanc products, I was looking forward for a BFM approach of using alpage herbs and plants. This beer is too much like a soda, a little too sweet with lingering bitter hops/citrus along with a mild touch of the Génepi.
Nice concept, just not well executed.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottled@The 1st Vaasa CS/ES beer session (thanks SV!). Slightly hazy pale green colour (like some of the really pale absinthes), with virtually no head. Aroma is quite much citrusfruits, mild cardboard as well as some slight herbs. Flavour is quite much the same along with some papery notes. Quite tonguetickling.
