Pours a hazy pale yellow with a good head and some nice lacing on the glass.
The aroma is nicely floral with almost like a rosewater or perfume-y character. Inviting in an odd way but certainly unique.
The flavor of course rides the line of pleasantly floral and spicy & tasting like you’re drinking perfume. It’s lightly bitter, sort of malty, fairly dry & quite herbal.
Unique, fun... I like it but then I can also see really not liking it if I wasn’t in the mood.
Che birra! Meravigliosa, schiuma molto persistente, come una nuvola, corpo deciso e gusto molto particolare. Sembra di essere in paradiso. fillepolo (1019) - SWEDEN - JUL 15, 2016

Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately to heavily bitter.

Kind of an oddball but I guess that can be expected of many beers with herb/spice adjuncts. It’s not too obnoxious with the obvious added ingredients, though they are still the most prominent things about the aroma. It’s a bit overboard in the mouth, though, especially considering the medium level alcohol content...it comes off more like an 8 to 9% beer; lots of sugar, lots of finishing bitterness (probably helped by the spices), and lots of apparent booze. But like a lot of Belgian-style brews with those characteristics, still not a lot of body. So I dunno...it’s not bad, but it’s very hard to get excited about it, mostly for subjective reasons.
