(Bottle). The scent is fresh and slightly tart with aromas of hops, yeast, citrus, lychee and spices (coriander). The taste is spicy and slightly sweet with notes of hops, yeast and citrus. A beer with a special flavor!

Pyobon (859) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 4, 2013
(Bottle) Hazy pale golden with thin white head. Distinctive, unusual and quite appealing aroma. The aroma is primarily tart with lemony citrus and hints of vinegar, there are subtle notes of bread, funk, spice and maybe exotic fruits. Wonderful palate, soft and mouth-filling. The taste is also rather unusual with elements of different styles. The foretaste has some candy sweetness well balanced with a fruity tang. This gives way to peppery spice, and perhaps a hint f alcohol bite, over a bready maltiness. The peppery spice develops into an impressive rich bitter finish. The mid taste is perhaps a little flat between the more intense foretaste and finish. An impressive and distinctive beer that I would happily drink again.

Idiosynkrasie (3232) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUN 21, 2013
330ml bottle. Clear golden colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally to moderately lacing, white head. Floral hop aroma, hints of exotic fruit, lychee, perfume, somehow "East-Asian" flavours. Taste is minimally to moderately sweet pale malty, floral hoppy overtones, fruity hints of lychee, strawberry, a basical strawy note constantly moves along. Not without attractivity, a crossover with Saison-character, but in the end too sweet and perfumed.
