Huge snow-white head, effervescent over slightly hazy light-golden beer. SUPERB lunaria nose, incredibly perfumey and delicate. Sweet apple juice-like taste, with a near indigestible amount of restsugars. Near cloying MF, awful. WHY is it, that a beer that smells só good and inviting, can prove so commercially infantile in taste?

Bottled. Yellow unclear colour. Dense off white head. Quite sweet and sparkling aroma. Light spices. Flavour is malty and spiced with some light notes of herbs. Is medium bodied. Has some light bitter notes in the end.

Wow. This came in a BOTTLE and is a specialty brew of the house (not on tap). Cost a fair bit of money by Prague standards. It’s a bit herbal and did not taste of champagne at all, as far as I could tell. It’s weird and I wouldn’t recommend it, unless you’re like me and just like trying weird beers.

Pours a reddish amber with a off-white head. They told me this was an herb beer, didn’t tell me what kind of herbs, but at least they gave me an idea of what to expect. Very earthy with a kinda scented oil mustiness to it. I wasn’t really fond of the aroma, but the taste was a bit better. Started sweet and earthy, but the really nice thing was that the funky soapiness from the aroma didn’t show so strongly in the flavor. Very dry tasting with a nice bitter finish.

pilsnerrogge (2643) - Finspång, SWEDEN - SEP 5, 2005
Golden, almost pink colour. Very weak head. Smelled like some cheap sparkling wine. Sparkling mouthfeel, sweet and thin. Couldn’t finish the bottle.

Very perfumey nose, sweet fruits, quite artificial. Yellow body, small white head. Flavor taste like soap water and is quite unpleasant. Fizzy.

UPDATED: MAR 24, 2008 The Lure:
Citrus and banana soap washing the trunk of a pine tree. A tantalizing perfumy, flowery aroma which succeeds in not getting too far away from its intent. Great lasting foam too from this bottle.

The Festivities:
Portly bubbles transport the citrus fruit, bananas and coniferous flavors follow the shampoo suggestions of the aroma. Sweeter than drier, this special champagne beer becomes rather easy drinking once you get accustomed to the soapy, perfumy originality, and when you embrace its subtle wooden hop bitterness in the end. But it might put you off due to its unbeery qualities.

Exotic desserts can be as fun as they are sickening.

Hazy golden colour with a thin white head. Soapy / perfume aroma. Sweet flower flavor with a lemon touch. Nice smooth palate.

A hazy dark yellow beer with a small off-white head. The aroma is weird - and I can’t really put words to it, but what springs to mind without being a perfect description are notes of citrus and anise. I wonder if it is the yeast that gives it the weird aromas. The flavor is very sweet and very spicy combined with notes of citrus.
