UPDATED: JAN 30, 2013 Bottle, bottle date oct 23 2012. Murky orange amber with tiny off white head. Aroma is sour berries, sour lactic, mild caramel, butter. Taste is medium sour, medium body, slick texture, near flat carbonation. Finish is lactic sour. Off and made me remember Eric Gadd. Double whammy.

Bottle 330 ml at home,from a trade with Countbeer, thanks. Poured into a lager glass, ABV 6.2%. Twenty months past its BBD according to the label.
Lots of yeast on the bottom of the bottle. Pours clear nevetheless, dark orange colour on the body, huge off-white head, very thick, wiht great retention. Vey intense activity in the glass.
Aroma of grains, nuts, hops, tropical fruits, oranges.
Taste is also grainy and nutty, fruity on the finish and on the aftertaste with orange marmalade, light citrus.
Medium thin body, good carbonation, moderate dry on the palate.
Overall a more than decent beer.

Notes from backlog. Some hopiness, but not enough to keep me excited. Felt quite bland.

Not very exciting, but quite good if you consider this is a lager. Has some fruit and hops, but it’s not very outspoken.

Bottle 33 cl from erzbierschof.ch. Reddish amber beer super fluffy and nervous crackling. Aromas of flowery hop on malted sweetness and yeast. Taste soft-bitter-grassy with a sourish note of sour cream. Grassy hops with earthy and citric hints, any kex yeast, zest and Saison. Nice bitter-sweet.

1.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle from Bierkoning, thanks! Aroma of white grapes and honey. Subtle herbal note. Nice though I’m wondering what is actually Bohemian about it. Tastewise it feels slightly infected, with an unpleasant acidity hindering me from finishing the beer. Very dry because of that. And contrary to the amount of IBUs the bitterness is pretty light. Not a good beer but I’m wondering whether it was infected or done so on purpose.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a caramel colour with a fairly big fluffy head, good lace. Nose is yeasty, malty, floral, damp grass, touch of cumin and cinnamon stick. Mouth marmalade, coffee creams, hazelnut, slight hint of -almost- diacetyl, bergamot tea. Very fruity swallow, orange cream Quality Streets all over the back of the throat. Odd, not unpleasant, just odd.
