This is a freakish and glorious brew. It is a lager brewed to Belgian white characteristics that’s spiced with cardamom, chamomile and orange. The aroma is fragrant and exotic – vanilla came to mind at first and then incense and an old girlfriend. Like a perfume or a passion.

Visually, this appears to be a Vienna lager. It is clear and bright yellow with a slight blush of orange. The head is blindingly white though it soon recedes. It is served with a wedge of orange and though this provides a charismatic enhancement to the flavor profile, it is hardly necessary. The herbal / floral balance to the taste is artistic and compelling.

This brew tastes like nothing else and is truly one of the best herbals I’ve had anywhere.
