Maakun (321) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 11, 2014
Slightly hazy golden with white head. Massive herbal spices, I guess this is the gagel. Nice medium sweet malts, lots of berries, some citrus and light herbal bitter finish. Interesting stuff.

Vignale (1806) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 28, 2014
Flaska från beernavigator.com. Disig, gyllengul högt vitt skum. Örtig doft med tydliga porskaraktär, lite blommigt tvålig och korianderfrön. Frisk med tydlig porssmak och om man inte gillar det gillar man inte den här drycken för smakbilden är ganska endimensionell. Lite oljig, lätt men tydlig beska. Trevlig i vårsolen. Gott

fkoolen (143) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - JAN 18, 2014
Hazy golden colour with a slim head. Nose is a bit thin, apple and citrus fruits are distinguishable. Taste has fruity sweet- and sourness (berries, apple), malts and a pleasant bitter note in the aftertaste. Medium-high carbonated, medium body.

I do appreciate a spicey beer, even with obscure spices and herbs. But this one just didn’t work for me. It had a nasty tardy taste. Blech.

Swaroga (1108) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 17, 2013
33cl bottle. Clear golden/orange with big head. NOSE : Strong aromas of fruits and herbs. Strong citrus notes. Some apple like aromas. Biscuit, dough. Cheese. Wood and gooseberry. SIP : Strong carbonation with fluffy texture. Medium body. Medium sweet grain like start. Carbonation spikes attack with dry and fruity notes. The flavors are if they put a whole apple or pear tree with the fruits in it. Also strong gooseberry like flavors mostly revealed with dry/sour notes. Bitterness is not attacking the back of the tongue and the throat. It stays in mouth while in the throat I feel more dry notes. Very interesting mouth feel. Aftertaste is dry and bitter. OVERALL : very interesting brew. Easy to drink, dry and bitter with peaks of sweet grains. Seams off balance but in fact it holds a very balanced spicy character. Really nice.

brokensail (9935) - Orange County, California, USA - NOV 29, 2013
On tap @ Beer Revolution. Slightly hazed golden straw pour with a white head. Aroma is apple cider, herbs, menthol, and cough syrup. A bit of candied orange peel, too. Weird. Flavor is a touch bitter and quite sweet. Lots of apple, cider, and candied orange peel. Some cough syrup, white grape, and yeast.

Grzesiek79 (2964) - Radom, POLAND - NOV 13, 2013
Bottle 0,75cl. Dobre piwo o intensywnym zapachu jakby kamfory lub jakiejs masci leczniczej. Woskowina jest roslina lecznicza i pewnie to zawdzieczamy ten aromatyczny zapach. Piana nie za wielka i jesli jest nie jest trwala. Metnosc za do zadowala i jest tego tak duzo ze piwo staje sie brudne i jakby brzydkie. Ogolnie smak slodkawo miodowy ale bardzo przyjemny. Piwo mimo niskiej zawartosci alkoholu udeza do glowy. Minus za korek syntetyczny.
