sebletitje (7793) - Enghien, BELGIUM - APR 23, 2011
33cl bottle @ a metal shop in Vosselaar with different label that had a viking in a bog with ’beer for metalhead’ description. Bière ancienne selon la recette gruit. Couleur dorée/orangée, col blanc. Arôme houblon, herbeuse avec le Myrica Gale aussi connu sous nom de Gale odorant, Myrique baumier, Piment royal ou Bois-sent-born qui donne ce côté typique à ce breuvage quoique ce dernier reste un peu faible. Malt aussi à noté et reste modéré. Une bière qui se laisse savouré et dont l’ajout de cett fleur suave un peu de tomber dans la banalité des ales belges. Levure et sucre avec au fini une touche de houblon citronné ainsi que un profile grains et malt.

Martinus (3711) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - APR 19, 2011
Pale golden rather hazy body. Cream white head, which gives a rather nice lacing. Aroma of orange, sweet honey and an herb (guess we found the bog myrtle). Some peach juice and unripe chilli pepper. Slightly sour nose. Flavour is sweet spicy, with a slight hoppy accent. Pronounced malts. Again the bog myrtle comes through nicely, giving an interesting and fresh touch. Sticky mouthfeel. Long finish, reminds of heather honey. Nice and interesting. (from 33cL bottle)

doublebock (527) - California, USA - APR 5, 2011
Cloudy golden-orange color with solid white head that lasts for a while. Honey-orange aroma. Initial flavor is surprisingly malty with brown sugar followed by notes of ginger.

I had never heard of bog myrthle before I tried this beer. It makes an interesting herb beer.

Tranquillity (1453) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - FEB 20, 2011
Bottled from a biostore in Amsterdam. Wonderful aroma. Flowers, chocolate, ginger. Very nice taste, balanced and still this strange chocolatey feeling. Nice, long, bitter finish. Blond, bit hazy, big white head.

borisz (376) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 13, 2011
Bottled. Hazy yellow colour with meadiumsized white creamy head. Aroma is spices, zest, yeast and some slight glueish hints. Flavour is spices, wheat, orange, citrusfruits and some yeast. Also a lot of herbs and spices as it warms up.

KyotoLefty (7540) - Kyoto, JAPAN - FEB 12, 2011
Bottled. Slightly cloudy, strong blonde beer, seems quite a bit like a spiced up tripel. Fruity aroma, crisp taste. A bit of fruity sweetness, but not too much, leading to a good, dry finish. Good hop taste, plus herbal flavors from the myrtle, but not really bitter. Interesting, though one is enough.

jzzbassman (1523) - New Albany, Mississippi, USA - FEB 5, 2011
Clear gold with a foamy white head. Aroma shows the bog myrtle similar to the floral Myrtle I use at work, peppery, with clove. Light candy necklace flavor and light fruit. Effervesent and light body.

Bosskie (587) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 26, 2010
Golden opaque beer with reddish highlights. Lots of bubblies in columns. Frothy generous persistent head. Bready yeasty smell with fruity hints; pear and peach. Subtly spiced, cardamom and cumin, I think. Reminds me of frankinsense! Dry on the mouth with a well balanced body of sweet and sour. Watery but with well developing taste. Delicious beer.

Abio (1773) - Waasland, BELGIUM - NOV 19, 2010
Yellow, light golden coloured. Ok sized head, but colapses a bit to quick for sure. Nice sticking to the glass. Smell is unpleasant spices. malts, yeast. Don’t like the smell. Taste is about the same, the spices used are just not my thing at all. More to put into medicins then into beer I think.
