GT2 (9410) - Oceanside, California, USA - OCT 19, 2011
Tap at Paradiso Georgetown. Poured a clear, straw yellow with a decent white head. Cidery, baked yellow apple nose with huge medicinal overtones like children’s cough syrup and big time sweet white grape juice box. Extremely sweet white grape juice concentrate. Taste is sprtizy, white grape juice box, tons of sugary children’s juice box. Gets to be a bit cloying.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2011
Bottle from Wellington Arms, Bedford. Gold with a large white head. Fishy, yeasty aroma. Very slight background malty sweetness in the taste, but there’s a bit of sour, soapy, earthy artisanale harshness and a faint dry finish. No idea what bog myrtle tastes like. Sat outside for this one, which probably increased my appreciation of it.

MPA (866) - Amager (form. Nørrebro&Aalborg), DENMARK - JUL 30, 2011
Bottle. Hazy golden with a very ’loose’ head with big soapy bubbles. Yeast, field, grain, and fruit in aroma. Slightly acidic in flavour along with spices and a bubbly bitterness.

Benzai (11041) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUL 26, 2011
Hazy cloudy golden / orange color. Average not too strong smell. Also average taste but very nice mouthfeel. Very good for a spice/herb/vegetable beer, which normally have a too strong smell or taste.

Hansen (7807) - Assentoft, DENMARK - JUL 12, 2011
Orange coloured and lightly unclear. Has a white head, mostly lasting. Difficult to detect what the aroma contains, spicy perhaps, malt perhaps. Flavor starts moderate sweet and finish lightly bitter. Dry texture.

sebletitje (8022) - 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 (4065) - 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 (532) - 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 (1509) - 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.
