"I’m not sure how I got so lucky to find this beer. Picked it up at Charles Street Liquors in Boston. The bottle was enticing but the reviews weren’t too glorious. Paid $10.99 for this bottle that filled 6 Champagne flutes among friends. My advice is to let it sit for a bit after opening. The flavors became more pronounced after 15 minutes.
Label said ""1/11"" on the side. I’m going to assume that was the manufacture date and not drink by date because I’d be a year too late.
A - Hazy tan color of a very mild wheat beer with bubbles that resemble champagne. The coloring also reminds me of a hazy pinot noir wine. Three finger head that subsides after 5 minutes. The plethora of bubbles that come from bottom to top never really stop.
S - Pine comes through a lot. Maybe even spruce and maple. I’m gonna say this smells like a Butterscotch candy very sweet and mild but earthy.
T - It’s taste is hard to pinpoint but after a few minutes, I’d say the taste was Robitussin or a cough drop. Very medicine like taste. If you like cough syrup, you’d like this.
M - Very dry like champagne or white wine. It’s a solid beer, very little carbonation when you swish it in your mouth and doesn’t stay with you except for a little cough syrup taste.
O - This is a nice solid beer but not something I’d drink often. I can actually see, as the label suggests, pairing this with asparagus and salmon. Fatty fish dishes would go really well with this. I had this with some English butter cheddar and it was a nice pairing but something was missing. This is a sipping beer and at $10.99 a bottle, share it with friends because drinking the whole thing is insane not because it’s high alcohol (it’s not) but it’s a very heavy beer."

You can definitely feel the hand of a genius such as Ferran Adrià behind this... Zargas (7) - NORWAY - JAN 28, 2012 does not count

Pours hazy yellow into a tulip. Bright white head with medium retention recedes leaving spider lacing. Dusty cookie aromas. Thin with sweet cookie and biscuit. Mild, dry yeasty finish. AlexGR (167) - GREECE - JAN 15, 2012
Pours a light hazy yellow yeasty color with a good white head. Aroma is yeasty, spicy with hints of coriander. Sweet bready taste, with a lot of spices, coriander and nutmeg. Light body, fresh to drink. A bit sweet finish. Well it’s well made beer, interesting combination of styles and tastes. Its’ purpose is to much a nice meal on a good restaurant, and think it does it well. Just too much spicy in my opinion. And i don’t like that much nutmeg and coriander. edgallow (4629) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 14, 2012
