Tried at Kroegske October 2001. Appearence: Golden yellow, clear, big rocky head. Aroma: dominated by complex herbs, but also some malt. Flavor: Herbal spicy flavors, including what tastes like licorice. Very complex, the spices are intruiging, and yet mellow for a gruit style, which is really what this is. Finish: Spiciness and creamy malt.

Me and 2 other guys payed six quid for this one. defintely not worth the 6 bloody quid. Lots of menthol, citrus, some yeasty sourness. Some clove, toilet cleaner and vomit, fizzy and detergenty. bittersweet flavour, a huge dissapointment(750ml bottle- ChelmsfordBF-03')

When I opened this bottle during the Super Bowl, everyone looked my direction. The cork popped like champagne, The bubbly brew poured effervecent and a cloudy yellow. The wine drinkers loved it. So did the beer drinkers. The aroma was subdued but the corriander came through. The taste also was not strong but satisfying. If finished somewhat sweet. The mouthfeel was near that of champagne and tingled the tongue. I found this beer very drinkable and enjoyed both glasses. I did not notice the alcohol in either the taste or the aroma, but I will look for another bottle to keep for special occasions.
