Scopey (14218) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2013
Bottle thanks to Fergus at the Pre-Zwanze. It pours golden-amber with a small-white head. The nose is spice, dough, herbal, floral and ginger notes. The taste is dough, earth, hay, citrus, pithy, floral and soapy notes with a crisp, dry finish. Medium+ body and prickly carbonation. Not something I would drink a lot of, but it is interesting and pretty well balanced. A good option to match with food.

Bov (12623) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - DEC 26, 2012
from Erzbierschof - clear and bright blond beer with a modest foam left; perfumy aroma with strong notes of medicinal herbs; medium-bodied and with a biting astringency; very dry and bitter with long herbal and spicy notes in the finish - surely interesting yet very hard to like

DuffMan (10139) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 3, 2014
Bottle. Slightly hazy bright yellow with a very dense thick persistent white head. Aroma is floral lime, galangal, and pepper. The palate has light malts that allow the delicate spices to shine. There is a touch more floral pepper in the flavour (grains of paradise), with some cucumber green character too. Finishes with light bitterness. This really impressed me.

sebletitje (9951) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUL 14, 2013
Bouteille 37.5cl, BB 04-10-2016. Dore claire, col blanc crmeux laissant une belle dentelle. Arme offre un bouquet fleuri presque de sureau, ce dernier est trs agrable et procure un bouquet assez unique. Malt pils se fait prsent galement. Palais est sympa, sec avec ce ct pils et un fleuri trs agrable entre sureau et citronnier. Ptillance est moyenne, palais reste sec voire poussireux. Fine note dpice et de levure arrivent en fin de bouche. Franchement une belle surprise, complexe tout en restant facile boire.

JorisPPattyn (9907) - Ursel, BELGIUM - MAR 3, 2013
Medium white head over clear golden beer. Strong nose of rosemary or lavender. Very spicy - Id guess green cardemom too. I know its really the lemon verbena, but thats not a herb I use in my kitchen. Again this spice in the mouth. To me, it tastes as lavender, but a co-taster thought indeed of verbena. Im a bit reluctant towards the flavour, but maybe in combination with algae, served on pebbles... Spice is really imposing, soapy. Finish has some grains. Spritzy, very refreshing, light body. Lets state that it deserves a chance with the food...

77ships (9350) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JAN 5, 2013
375 ml. Mikkeller styled green bottle with cap served into my Mikkeller Teku @ home. Purchased @ Hopduvel higher class beer. Brewed originally exclusively for Noma allegedly the greatest restaurant in the world but now apparently widely distributed. This is a beer brewed with lemon verbena with which I am personally not familiar & named after Nomas sommelier. Other herbs appear to be used going by the ingredient list but since I do not know Danish, I have no idea which ones. It is interesting to think the kind of crowd this beer might attract, not necessarily a beer-centric one either. Appearance wise this looks like a perfection of what most people think that beer looks like, namely bright sun golden & clear with a slightly foamy, tad creamy powder white head. Smell is intensely herbal, I presume that it is entirely dominated by lemon verbena but I cannot judge about that since I dont know how that one smells or tastes like. I am getting strong aloe vera here, botanical garden, lots of herbs, very floral, clean with rosemary & small mint-like hints with light citrus. Taste ones I am picking up similar notes, lots of aloe vera, botanical garden, rosemary, bitter floral, touch parley & mint, flowers, citrus, bakers yeast & floor, substantially bitter in the back in a herbal, slightly ester-type of way. Light, perfect carbonation. I can imagine that this would pair well with the type of dishes that Noma serves. I find this to be quite interesting, it is doing original & great things and introduces a lot of new and highly enjoyable flavours. This is frankly a brilliant beer from the Mikkeller brand in my opinion and one that I greatly enjoyed drinking.
