Straw colored with stringy lacing. Wow! That has just a touch of juniper in the nose. Kind of a sweet citrus in a lemon cough drop way. Finishes with a slight vegetal quality. A little bit of medicine as well. I found it just plain weird.

(Draught) Sampled at Dix X-mas Xtreme Caskival 2007. Smells like ginger beer. Cloudy amber colour and great conflicting flavours: tinny, leaf, pine needles. A very pleasing elixir.

Cloudy straw colour. Very herbal nose - juniper, sage, mint, maybe goji berry. Slightly spritzy, rather spicy, with a smooth juniper finish but the malts come off a bit flat. Good potential in the concept, though.
