750 ml. bottle. Pours a small head that fades soon, but there's a lace all the time until you finish. Sediments are cre clearly visible. Smells like walking through a forest: pine, rosemary, lavender, eucalyptus... Fresh and creamy palate, dry finish and taste again of forest, rosemary dominates but with notes of almost of the plants you can think. Exceptional, IMO.

A - clouded gold/orange with a white head that did not fade out right away (lasted to the end of my glass). The lacing was thin but what showed up stayed with the glass.

S - sweeter ale with some earthy notes from the rosemary honey. Nothing overpowered as this was well balanced.

T - Sweet honey notes just over the ale flavor. The hops do not stand out at all but instead support the flavor.

M - mild carbonation lets me enjoy this without excessive bubbly. Numerous beers should take note of this. The balance of the malt with the hops with the honey is good. It is not jumping around rather flowing through and nicely so.

D - Yes, yes and yes. This is one to figure out how to make around here and see what we come up with.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A = Honey-colored with wispy white lace. The lacing's light, but it clings to the sides of the glass.

S = Like a mountain meadow -- with rosemary plants.

T = The rosemary's there, but it's not overpowering. (My husband doesn't like rosemary and he likes this beer.) He says it tastes like a cousin of the French farmhouse ale. No bitterness. Lots of floral undertones and spicy finish. Hint of yeast and mustiness.

M = Dry and slightly carbonated, almost tingly.

Light and easy to drink. It might be overpowered if it was paired with a meal, but it's a nice after-dinner drink before bed.

Easily the best beer I've ever tasted from Spain. Though that's not saying much.

Interesting beer. From a s,all, champagne like bottle, the beer pours a honey colored, very effervescent (gusher) liquid. Nice head and slight haze. The smell is phenomenal. Rosemary really stands out. Fresh, shrub/tree, outdoorsy, perfume aromas...not beer like, but amazing. The taste is similar, but the honey begins to stand out with a sweetness and flavor. Medium body. Very interesting beer.
