larsga (6213) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 2, 2013
Big offwhite head. Clear amber body with carbonation. Fruity herbal aroma with minty notes. Dryish earthy resiny herbal taste with grassy notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, mealy mouthfeel. Dry resiny fruity mealy aftertaste with herbal grassy notes. Nice, drinkable, maybe a little bit austere, but with a good bit of sweetness to it. (0.75l bottle, from Kihoskh, Copenhagen.)

elbernays (506) - Dublin, IRELAND - OCT 5, 2013
Cloudy orange. Low carbonation. Fulness of a Belgium ale with a hop hit. Bread notes with banana and apricot. Nice beer.

Sigmund (5119) - Tau, NORWAY - OCT 1, 2013
750 ml green bottle, probably from Voldby Købmandsgaard. ABV is 6%. Hazy golden colour, huge white head. Strong aroma of spicy / peppery, herbal and grassy hops. Distinct hoppy flavour, fairly dry, strong peppery and herbal notes, bitter finish.

Embrouille (2827) - SWITZERLAND - SEP 25, 2013
Bottled 75cl. Hazy golden with a tall chunky mountainous white head. Peppery yeasty nose which is reminiscent of tropical fruit, earthy spicy hops and cloves. Mediocre hop profile which isn’t all that well integrated. Flawless and very belgian but fails to convince me. Dandelion in the finish.
