3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
[on tap at brewpub]
Fairly potent citrusy (US?) hops aroma in front of a blast of sweet malt. Hazy dark yellow with very nice clingy, white foam. Fairly bland and soda watery flavour and mineraly bitterness. A little redeeming malty caramel comes in late in the flavour. Apricot and apple notes. Light body and thin with lasting bitterness and moderate carbonation.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle BB 11/06/07; ABV 4.6%; Thanks Jay!) Flowery, hemp-like and citrus fruity aroma. Yellow colour, hazy (small particles) and average size, white head with good lacing. Fruity, grassy, hemp-like (mild), slightly malty and slightly bitter flavour. Medium-bodied and softly/lively carbonated palate. Refreshing one! 03/06/07

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
on tap at the brewpub. one of two beers that i expected to be complete disasters which weren’t. aroma reminded me of a good nz gewuerztraminer. plenty of hemp character especially seed, quite sweet with a grassy finish, a bare minimum of hops in this but i think it works better having a pronounced hemp character

Hazy pale yellow colour. Citrusy, perfumy nose with notes of elder. Rich flowery and fruity in flavour with elder present. Stalk-ish mouthfeel. Notable bitterness and very dry. Flavourful beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Medium hemp aroma. Pale ornage color. Medium hemp taste, a little bit watery, crispy. Dry, light bitter aftertaste. A like the hemp aroma, but this one’s more for a hot summer day.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: DEC 19, 2004 On tap at 7SternBrau, Wien (with Geiserich). Pale orange with lasting head, slight haze. Sorry, but I didn’t get this one, thin vegetable leafy notes in a thin malt. Dry with some hemp on the nose. Not to my taste.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pale golden hazy beer with a good, rich, fruity and unusual taste that gets more intense in the aftertaste. I really like the hanfbier taste, but some people may not - it’s a bit unusual! (Draught at Siebensternbräu, Wien)
