j12601 (9549) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - DEC 16, 2015
Bottle at James’ for cider and Big Alice night. Pours a hazed amber with a thin white head. Skunky on the nose, soft musk and a hint of citrus behind it. Medium bodied, tart with a touch of citrus, soft musk. Gentle musk into the finish, light and tangy. Very tasty.

Foffern (1643) - Bodø, NORWAY - NOV 30, 2015
Bottle. Pours a hazy orange color with a white head. The aroma is fresh and spicy with nutmeg, lemon balm, orange peel, herbs, Martini and grass. The flavor also has a lot of spices with fruits in the background. A little sour. Here’s hops, lime, lemonade and dry hay. Quite short aftertaste. Has a slick mouth feel, medium body and a light bitterness. A fresh, fruity, spicy and easy drinking ale. Very interesting and well balanced.

fkoolen (924) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - OCT 30, 2015
Big bottle at home. Cloudy golden, white creamy head. Spicy, citrus fruity, grassy hoppy, lightly tard and funky, nicely creamy malted. Fizzy carbonation, medium body, soft mouthfeel.

conway (2210) - - OCT 22, 2015
Bottle. Hazy gold with a big white head and lots of floaties. Truly bizarre aroma and taste. Sort of dominated by oregano, with some hints of mint, pencil lead and spelt. Light and spritzy. Wouldn’t drink it again but I’ll never forget it.

John25 (1291) - Middletown, New Jersey, USA - OCT 22, 2015
Bottle. Not my thing. Huge sage, mint, and oregano aroma and taste. Way too much spice. To be fair this bottle is a couple years old and probably should have been drank fresh. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SlackerMads (2820) - DENMARK - OCT 1, 2015
Bottle. Hazy yellow with a medium sized white head with good retention and lace. Very spicy nose with lots of cloves, flowers, herbs. The flavour is also dominated by spices and herbal notes. Again also some flowers, dust, grain, light golden bread, pepper, pear, lime, dandelion, aloe vera. Medium body, fine carbonation, some sweetness, light acidity, no alcohol showing, mild bitterness. Fantome when it is best and infection free. In theory this is too heavy on the spices for my taste, yet here I am in the real world enjoying it quite a lot. Just like it is the case with analingus.

CanIHave4Beers (3999) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - SEP 18, 2015
Bottle, shared by me... in my dining room... just now.
Pours a very hazy gold color with a thick medium sized white head atop.

The aroma is musty with some mild barnyard stuff. It’s got some grape, and some herbaceousness. It’s got some alcohol.

The flavor is really quite pleasant, drier than the aroma would have ever let on but not bracingly so. The bitterness and general herbal character of the beer is the primary player here, but there are some pear and white grape fruity notes along with a mild grassiness. The beer is tart, but only lightly tart with a long lingering bitterness.

Really nicely balanced and surprisingly drinkable given the boost level.

danielecamo (839) - ITALY - AUG 31, 2015
In bottiglia. Colore giallo dorato, schiuma fine e persistente, leggermente velata. Aroma di rosmarino, zenzero, limone. al palato lieve acidità, limone, rosmarino e zenzero soprattutto. Buona birra anche se una 33cl sarebbe più che sufficiente
