Nice color, instant rosemary nose, has a creamier head than many beers of this style. Easy to drink with note of rosemary and honey.

Pours very fizzy with a soap sudsy head. Smell like ginger ale. with some Belgian yeast. Taste is smooth with noticeable spice and a nice little crispness dryness in the finish. Yes perhaps even slightly tasting like ginger ale but not as sweet. A mix of herbs going on in the taste. Seems like something DFH would release. Also finishes a little like a saison but with a touch of honey. Fizzy on the tongue which isn't desirable to me.

Its an ok beer. I could drink again, but not anything really exceptional by any means.

Review based on the BJCP2008 guidelines (style 21A). Bottle 33 cl - batch L020216. AROMA: very interesting subtle rosemary aroma mixed with a sweet honey and malt profile. slight DMS present. Very faint hop aromas. APPEARANCE: golden orange color with particles in suspension. thin ivory head with low retention. TASTE: unbalanced rosemary flavours that overpower the base beer style. very low bitterness and very faint malt and honey flavours. very low esters. finishes medium-dry with some astringency. PALATE: thin body with low carbonation and some astringency. OVERALL: a nice and inventive approach to a spice/herb beer that lacks a bit more of balance between the herbs and the base ale.
