Bottle from the Bierkoning Amsterdam. A bit hazy orangy color, full sized off-white head. Smell and taste malts, lightly herbs and spices, a slight bitter touch. A bit boring. Low to medium body and carbonation.

oh6gdx (21618) - Vasa, FINLAND - JAN 27, 2015
Bottled. Hazy amber colour, mediumsized off-white head, which leaves some lace. Aroma is herbs, spices, some malts along with some fruity notes. Flavour is quite a fruity version of the same with some nice herbal notes in the finish. Refreshing brew.

MonsterMagnet (420) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 9, 2014
Bottle, bottled 2-2013, pours hazy dark yellow with a white head. Aroma: thyme, cough syrup, very herbal. Taste: thyme, anise, honey, floral and herbal. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel. Sweet with a bitter herbal finish. Interesting beer, would be better if the thyme were slightly less dominant.

Weer zo'n waardeloze telefoonrating waar ik niets mee kan dan op het eindcijfer na. Hierbij de letterlijke tekst: Pranje amberin witte kraag Red zoet z boyter. Zw body Aardignaar bwaah 2.4 Haha. Ik kan ook al géén 2 dingen tegelijk bier proeven en een rating invoeren.

Douberd (2907) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - APR 26, 2014
Bottle 330 ml at home, into a big tulip glass, ABV 6.5% Dark orange to light amber colour on the body, slight hazy, with two fingers of white head on top. Okay retention, leaving light lacing around the glass. Aroma is of malts and yeast and although at first not so strong, the thyme is there, giving a nice touch. Taste has also quite some thyme in it, along with malts,yeast, floral notes, quite nicely hopped with a god bitterness on the aftertaste, with long duration too. Medium thin body, average carbonation, quite dry on the palate and every now and then a numbing feeling there. Overall nice beer, interesting for sure.

Idiosynkrasie (4468) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUN 16, 2013
330ml bottle. Cloudy amber colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, moderately lacing, off-white head. Herbal aroma with a thyme note, cautious fruity background with hints of pear. Taste has a minimally soapy thyme note, an unspecific fruity touch, in the finish dry, minimally astringent, herbal. Not bad, but sadly slightly soapy.

jmgreenuk (5320) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JUN 11, 2013
Bottle from ABC Beers, Den Haag. Poured a hazy dark amber with a frothy white head and a little broken lace. The aroma is of spiced fruit leading to an unusual weak bitter, slightly resinous, fruity, spiced, yeast flavour with a smooth palate and finish. A very refreshing spring ale I must say!

Bottle. Pours hazy orange/amber with a small to medium white head. Aroma is malty, caramel, some thyme and some spices. Taste is caramel malts, some spices, thyme and a soft bitter finish. Decent body and a medium carbonation. Thyme is not too much, bot overall just a dull beer.
