fkoolen (671) - 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 (2171) - - 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 (1245) - 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 (2354) - 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 (3677) - 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 (845) - 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

fletchfighters (1298) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 11, 2015
Hazy orange amber color. White head that falls to a thick collar. Some soapy lacing. Nose is sea salt, grass, lemongrass, white pepper, beach smell really. Taste is salty, grassy, lemon and orange peel with white pepper. Slightly thin in the mouth. Lingering orange, lemon and grapefruit peel finish. Clean but slightly oily finish.

scirtes (235) - POLAND - AUG 4, 2015
Bottle, bb end 2018. Golden hazy beer with large white head. Aromas of citrus fruits and a lot of spices. Bitterness is low, but well marked. Very spicy, pepper-like with phenolic notes. Low to medium bodied, lively carbonated. Drinkable and refreshing.
