Idiosynkrasie (6317) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - AUG 7, 2013
500ml bottle. Clear orangey dark golden colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Hoppy aroma is minimally piney, more strawy and grassy, malty basis with a honey and elderflower touch. Taste is minimally sweet malty, fruity hints of elderberries, gooseberry, dry overtones of fruit parings, grassy hop with a strawy touch. Cautious or even almost anaemic, but well balanced; not a striking beauty, but worth a second look.

Beermack (725) - London, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2013
50cl bottle. Light hazy golden/orange. Lots of spruce, spices, lemon rind, and lemongrass in the aroma. Taste gives light biscuity malt, some pithy citrus, big herbal lemongrass (gets to the back of your throat), some earthy/spicy stuff too. Lingering lemony herbaceous notes. Crisp and dry. Great sessioner for Sorachi Ace lovers.
