Sampled 1-9-2007. Pours a cloudy straw gold with a big off white head. Nose is yeasty, but gently floral as well. Flavor is quite unique. Starts off like a milder Belgian style brew and then you get an acrid flowery edge to it that leaves a plant-like aftertaste in your mouth. Feel is carbonated but light in punch from ingredients. I think it is drinkable, but for people who are not into this style, I can definitely see them not liking this at all since it is such a unique production. But for me, I'd probably give it a go again. Even though the price is a bit high.

330ml flip top bottle. Pours a cloudy yet sparkling golden yellow with no head, almost wine like. Aroma and Taste is mild sweet herbal spices, light malt, slightly pungent yeast with light bitterness, some alcohol essence and tartness. Palate is a medium body, smooth, with light carbonation. Finish is sweet and bitter herbal spices, sage, Belgian yeast, some fruity notes, almost like a white wine. Overall an interesting brew that grows on you as you drink, a good after dinner brew.

Golden amber color with a very thin head with low retention. Some very small particles floating particles and gets cloudy in its last pour.
Quite yeasty aroma, Belgian kind. Notes of honey, herbal, kind of pine or juniper and rotten oranges and lemon. Not overly sweet, perfect for the style. A hint of Bretta soapiness.
Excellent taste that follows nose. A pleasant citrusy with some piney hops.
Medium body with appropriate carbonation, with a second fizz phase.
Awesome beer, I guess there are more than chocolates in the gastronomy space in Switzerland. A pleasant surprise. I found this under rated, not sure if my sample were rightly matured (it looked old though did not have an expiration date), or I am getting used to funky beers.

Interesting brew that I do not have much to compare to. Pours almost no head yet the carbonation was fairly balanced. The beer is very herbal, just a different kind of beer then I am used to. That said it was worth drinking.

Bottom Line: Expand your beer experience and give it a try.
