1L bottle, courtesy of argo0. Thanks, Aaron! Pours a cloudy grapefruit appearance; off-white head with good lacing. Tart citrus and grapefruit; spice and floral notes in the aroma. Medium mouthfeel: tart grapefruit and citrus; mild, zesty acidity; yeasty notes. Medium, tart finish, showing grapefruit and some dough.

GregClow (2976) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 11, 2006
Bottle sample at Union Beer Trade Tasting, NYC. Honey-golden colour with a small white head. Aroma is very floral - lots of rose, clover and honey. Flavour is light, with similar floral notes to the flavour but more subdued. Fairly simple, but a nice & unique beer.

eaglefan538 (2942) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - OCT 11, 2006
Poured a golden color with hints of amber, thin initial head, and weak lacing. The aroma was wheaty, floral, spicy (ginger?). The flavor was wheaty, dry, spiced with some pepper and light ginger, pretty odd spicing going on, I liked Berts live "dill pickle" descriptor. Mouthfeel was dry and thin, somewhat acidic. A light but not so enjoyable beer. Good thing this was only 3.8%, as Bert had to down more than half of this on his own after I took off. Thanks, Bert!

1 liter bottle brought to Jimmack Invitational’07. Bottle is now a year old. Pours a murky dark golden with a small head. Aroma is very original, very spiced ala raw meat rub. Spiky on the nose with lots of green herbs. Taste is a bit more died done, a very herbal, organic, green saison. Lots of flavors, light bodied and amply carbonated. Short organic-earthy aftertaste. Very original, would definitely drink again.

iowaherkeye (2698) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - JUL 21, 2006
Had this one for a couple weeks, as it seems it’s now available in the US. 1L bottle. Pours a hazy orange with a huge creamy eggshell head. Aroma is sour fruits and a little funk--kinda saison-y, some floral aromas, misc spices. Flavor is quite tangy--maybe from the elderberry (I haven’t had elderberries in years, so I can’t remember their taste)? Some dust is also in there with some grassy hops, this doesn’t get very bitter. Biscuity finish. Very light bodied, highly carbonated. Nothing exceptional, but not bad by any means. In fact, pretty good.

Carolina Crew tasting. Bottle courtesy of Todd! Thanks! Hazy light amber pour with fluffy white head. Tart aroma. Tart up front with a floral finish

sloth (2637) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - NOV 4, 2006
Small white head, decent lace. Clear gold color. Spicey nose, faint citrus, light floral notes as well as a dill pickley aroma. Strange. Body is light with an aggressive carbonation, with a neat tartness that grows as you consume this 1 litre bottle by yerself (thanks Brian!) in one sitting. Light spice flavors, peppery, ginger, flowery, perfumey, yeasty and citrusy. What a conglomeration of flavors! Finish is dry, tart. An easy drinkin little brew. Kinda grows on ya after awhile, by yourself, alone, with a 1 litre bottle. Thanks goodness for the low ABV.

bartlebier (2559) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - AUG 7, 2014
0,2L draught sample@Internationales Bierdorf, Tettnanger Hopfenwandertag 2014. Pours thin and somewhat milky, aroma of sweet pollen, wild honey, summery petals, some rose-scented bathfoam and mamouchy elderflower. Not picking up any pepper. Taste is sweeter and more lieblich than that, would prefer more attenuation, but still very pleasantly drinkable. More of a spring/summer seasonal.
