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.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle 25cl. Horrible green sugar sauce that smells nothing natural. Not fresh at all a very bad try.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Green... yes green beer. Transparent with a fizzy head... looks more like 7up than beer :-) Dry, citric, lime-like smell. Very fresh with a wierd kinda dry meat smell - like meat that’s been on a bbq for too long. Hint of yeast.
Sweet! Soda sweetness which doesn’t work very well with the beery taste. The carbonation is also more soda than beer. VERY STRANGE BEER!

Urgh a parte che è verde e vabeh, ma è un robo terribile: io non sono un gran bevitore di genepì, ma sta cosa puzza di sciroppo e ha un sapore stucchevolissimo. Bah ne avrò bevuto sì e no un sorsino. Che brutta idea comprarla

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Clear bottle shows off a lime green liquid. A longer lasting head than soda pop, but otherwise it looks like something from a soda jerk. Lots of carbonation floating upward.
Smells like Underwood Deviled Ham. There’s a spice I recognize but I can’t describe beyond being green and being a cross between oregano and basil.
Quite sweet with a spicy twang at the swallow--not nearly as bad as the smell might indicate. Still, this isn’t beer to me. I love the attempt to do something completely different but this isn’t for me.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Sample Date: 3/21/2009 Source:Mekong) Clear 12 oz bottle courtesy of An at Mekong. Light fruity almost lime like citrus aroma. Clear light lime colored with a small white head. Flavor is lightly sweet lime like with corn sugar notes. Apparently the Genipi flowers used is what gives the beer its color and lime like floral notes. Very interesting.
