Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a hazy orange amber with a thin white head that has good retention and lacing. Aroma dominated by rosemary, with hints of Belgian style yeast and candi sugar. Smells more like a soda than a beer. Flavor is saison style yeast and malt, rosemary, light honey and lemon citrus. Medium bodied wth active, peppery carbonation. A nice light, and very refreshing farmhouse style spiced beer. The rosemary is very distinctive and surprisingly well supported by the malt body, although it is light and not very malty. A unique and interesting ale that could have been overwhelmed by the stron spicing. Nicely done. I regret drinking this on a cold day in December, because this would be an excellent hot summer day beer. Hope to see it again. There are not many Spanish beers making to this country, but they are doing interesting brews.

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.
