COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The use of Hemp Flowers (among other entheogenic plants) in Beer was a common thing in whole Europe before the year 1512, when the so called "beer purity law" appeared in Germany. This purity law is perhaps the first anti drug law of the menkind... Hemp is an emparented plant with hops. Hemp flowers have more than 140 different aromatic compounds. Many of them are found in hops too and many others that are not produced by hops but fits perfect with hops together. This all different essential oils that results in the unmistakeable hemp flower aroma of Cannabia. Cannabia contains more hemp flowers than hops flowers. The production of Cannabía was autorized in ’96 by the Berliner authoritys. For more on this beer visit: http://www.dupetit.de/english/framer.htm

Golden color. What a strange aroma. Apple syrup. Linseed oil. Cannabis??? Too sugary sweet for that. Grainy flavor, rye perhaps. Thin and rather sweet. Not worth a retry.

DruncanVeasey (7142) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUL 11, 2006
Nauseating stench of spliff, watery yellow body, bitter hemp/mandarin orange flavour that lingers revoltingly. Whether you can stomach this or not will depend entirely upon your experience of the drug. Hemp overpowers any other aromas or flavours the beer may aspire to having. But what the hell did I expect? A one-dimensional gimmick bordering on the undrinkable, but you have to try these things. Bonus point only for flouting the Reinheitsgebot.

Tranquillity (1410) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUN 20, 2006
Bottle, 330ml. Pale amber lager colour, no head to talk of. Sweet rubber aroma. Quite akward. Quite good taste once you get used to it, with a tinge of lemon zest. The hemp is strongest in the finish, which is surprisingly long.

rauchbier (3598) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2005
Bottle, from Beer Cellar in Lincoln. Gold, thin white head and moderate condition. Aromas of honeyed malt and solid flowery herbal hop notes, presumably some of which is hemp flowers. Full bodied in the mouth with sweet grainy malt balanced discretely by hop and again a flowery herbal note. Sweet finish with slight hop bitterness.
