vanvenlo (1312) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - MAY 20, 2012
19-May-12 - Slowbeer on tap - Ginseng-ginger earthy citrus aroma. Cloudy deep amber colour, nice head and fluffy lacing. Starts with a lemonade flavour when cool, but opens to a lovely complex herbal sweet earthy apricot bitter finish and subtle ginseng like herbal aftertaste. Impressed with the crafting of this beer, along with the complexity of flavours.

En frisk, blommig och balaserad ale. Smak av honung, örter, trä. En trevlig bekantskap.

thewolf (11257) - Kolding, DENMARK - APR 8, 2012
Bottle, bought @ Mundus, city vest, Aarhus.
Pours hazy pale yellow-amber with a firm, staying, creamy, white head. Aroma is very floral, malty sweet, doughy, hay, a bit of mint and peach. Thistle as well. Highish carbonation, fine dryish and light mouthfeel. Flavour is simple, doughy malts sweetness, some hay-like earthy bitterness and an underlying, elegant herbiness with bog myrtle, mint, oregano notes. Fine lingering dryness with some bitterness.

randy1301 (265) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 7, 2012
12oz bottle from Chan’s Wine World in Destin Florida. Pours a pretty golden , clear yellow with a creamy white head. Nose is yeasty and citrusy with a slightly musty nose. Taste is slightly sour, creamy and tart with a hop bitterness that shows through just enough. Wow. Really beautiful beer.

Bottle 75 cl. Pours a cloudy golden with tiny impurities and a white head. Sweet fruity nose with a little spice. Medium body, sweet fruit, a little yeast and quite a fresh spiciness. Ends dry but not really hoppy. Pleasant. 180218

yngwie (14146) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 18, 2012
Bottle, 75cl. It pours an almost clear body, golden in color and with a small, off-white head. Lightly spiced, licorice-like aroma with pale malts and some sugary notes, dried fruits and a hint of something honey like. It’s smooth on the palate, slightly flat, with flavors of pale malts, sugar, spices and some licorice. A quite tasteful beer that I wouldn’t mind drinking again. 120218
