Bottle shared. Pours cloudy straw with a white head. Aroma of weeds, freshly mown grass, citrus, coriander and other herbs, spices, light nutmeg. Flavour is light to moderate sweet and moderate bitter. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Nice for the style. Bov (13004) - 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 mR_fr0g (12908) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2013

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. 77ships (10436) - 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 Noma’s 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 don’t 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. deanso (10178) - Chiang Mai, THAILAND - FEB 18, 2013
37.5cl bottle courtesy of and shared with Kermis.
Herbal citrus aroma. Thick white head. Hazy blond pour. Quite refreshing and easy to drink. sebletitje (10178) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUL 14, 2013
Bouteille 37.5cl, BB 04-10-2016.
Dorée claire, col blanc crémeux laissant une belle dentelle.
Arôme offre un bouquet fleuri presque de sureau, ce dernier est très agréable et procure un bouquet assez unique. Malt pils se fait présent également.
Palais est sympa, sec avec ce côté pils et un fleuri très agréable entre sureau et citronnier. Pétillance est moyenne, palais reste sec voire poussiéreux. Fine note d’épice et de levure arrivent en fin de bouche. Franchement une belle surprise, complexe tout en restant facile à boire. JorisPPattyn (10061) - BELGIUM - MAR 3, 2013
Medium white head over clear golden beer. Strong nose of rosemary or lavender. Very spicy - I’d guess green cardemom too. I know it’s really the lemon verbena, but that’s 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. I’m 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. Let’s state that it deserves a chance with the food...
