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

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap at 7 Stern. It pours hazy golden yellow with a small white head. The nose is spice, herbal, dough, butter and some sweetness. The taste is spice, herbal, dough, bitter grass, light butter, metallic and some lemon pith with a long, dry finish. Medium body and pretty lively carbonation. No nearly as bad as I had feared. Not bad, just not too much to it.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
0.5l bottle brought from Vienna by a friend (thanks Ivana!)
A little past its bb date but still ok. Murky orange-yellow body with a medium sized white head taht took its time to go away. Strong yeasty nose. The taste is hoppy, with an obvious presence of hanf, nicely spicy/herbal. Yeasty, light acidity, long yeasty aftertaste. Ok overall I guess. Just a little off (the yeast is too prominent). Might rerate it at the brewpub.
