Rating #1043 - March 27, 2014 - @avbc tap takeover @revolutionYEG - Clear golden amber pour with a weak, white head that bubbles away to a ring. Aroma is strong with hoppy overtones, spicy earthy hops, toasted malt. Taste is more of the same, dry hops and paleish malts dominating the flavour, with a hint of sweetness. Finish is dry, but balanced and satisfying. Delicious.

Benzai (11825) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - FEB 4, 2016
Bottle @ weekly tasting shared by Dutchdrebus. Lightly hazy dark orange to amber color, medium sized off-white to beige head. Aroma is malts, some caramel and I also get some dark fruit like black currant somehow. Taste is also a bit weird. Some hops in there but again quite strongly some dark fruits like black currant and something else I can’t put my finger on. Solid bitterness, but again it’s a bit weird. Medium body and carbonation.

Copper colour. Aroma has a strong floral herbal sweetness. Flavour is also sweet with pear juice and candy. Hop bitterness in the finish but not enough to counteract the overall sweet floral flavours.
