KansaiBeerLvrs (3566) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 25, 2014
Bottle from the LCBO. A glowing copper with a solid head of foam. A lovely fruity & herbal hop bouquet. Very soft velvety mouthfeel. The taste is a simpler woody pine bitterness with a bit of residual sweetness from the malts.

DuffMan (8321) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 25, 2014
Bottle, shared with TylerDurden. Hazy pale gold, lively white head. Aroma is more hoppy than anything (I think I was expecting more of a wit-bier aroma for some reason), and to be honest I have no idea how yarrow or sweet gale should smell or taste. Biscuity pale malts, unripened mango, nettles/grass. Finish is bitter and dry. I would never guess this is anything other than a well made American pale ale, but I mean that as a compliment.

60 cl bottle, Mulmur, ON, Canada. Slightly hazy gold, thick head. Caramel and resin aroma. Bright and sweet, then a peppery vanilla finish.

Lagerboy (1663) - British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 5, 2014
600 ml bottle. Clear deeper orange, firm off-white froth settles and lasts. Pungent herbal floral aroma with some c-malt. Taste is very Gaelic, heather, rose hips, a hint of treacle, pale c-malts, evergreen burps. Average carbonation, light-medium bodied, moderately hopped. Crisp and dry, delightful.

flip_soeperman (879) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 24, 2014
Such a delicate yellow hazy floral beer. Not that bitter, and not that sweet. Just a perfect balances of floral fragrances and some herbs in the taste, bit reminiscent of thyme. Great summer beer.

jdobbs (411) - New Brunswick, CANADA - JUL 14, 2014
A very dry, herbal beer. Some great dry, grassy, green hoppy notes, with some minerals, and cereals. Quite floral, and herbaceous. Light honey, and more grassy, green hops in the finish. Quite bitter, but very pleasant
