A very quirky "pre-commercialization" interpretatiion that both hits, and misses the mark...I love the aroma, which reminds me of an alpine meadow in springtime, and the color, which is a very deep green that carries through the louche, however, said louche is definitely on the thin side, no matter how slowly, and carefully I water the glass.



The flavor is definitely on the medicinal side, and there is a bubblegummy quality to it that reminds me of a Belgian Tripel style ale,and I mean this in a complementary way. However, the finish is just a tad on the metalic, or burnt side, so it has to lose points.



Overall, a very worthwhile effort that I found mostly appealing, and I can't wait to taste the final version.
