Benzai (6459) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, - MAY 11, 2013
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.

Idiosynkrasie (3273) - 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 (3591) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - 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!

TheJvd (682) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 9, 2013
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.

goozen (2727) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - MAR 30, 2013
Bottle 0,33ltr: Hazy amber coloured brew with an nice taste of thyme. I drunk some French beers with thyme, and this Dutch version is more gentle in taste.

Bottle @ Home
Cloudy murky brown, decent off-white head. Aroma is dough, yeast and malt. Taste has some additional lemon freshness. But that’s the only aspect that would make you think about spring in this beer. Rather bitter aftertaste.

thanatosti (821) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 15, 2012
33 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ Traverse, Utrecht. Hazy dark yellow with a white head. Yeasty thyme aroma with some aniseed. Taste is thyme all the way, maybe a bit too much. Short aftertaste. An interesting combination, beer and thyme, but not well executed.
