annunz123 (948) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 11, 2012
Sweet aroma with a little sour funk. Flavor starts sweet with some spice, almost a hint of ginger ale. Citrus and a trace of sour funk in the finish. Carbonation gives a creamy mouthfeel. I liked this better than I expected given the ratebeer rating.

Bontus (742) - Flanders, BELGIUM - MAY 10, 2012
Bottle from Geers. Pours dark yellow, almost orange, hazy with the yeast. Sticky retaining white head. Nose is rust/iron and when the head dies down more sweet peaches and such. Aroma is slightly clinical over syrupy grains. Flavor mostly sweet. Medium to low carbonation. Not very inspiring.

Shaney (2424) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - MAY 8, 2012
#1265 Das Bier wird mit Gagel, einer Strauchart, gebraut. Es hat einen medizinischen Grundton ähnlich wie Salbei und ist daher überhaupt nicht mein Fall. Kann man zwar trinken, hat mit dem eigentlichen Biergeschmack aber nur bedingt zu tun.

Travlr (20923) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAR 29, 2012
Bottle. Cloudy golden yellow, large fluffy white head. Aroma of bog myrtle. No, I’m kidding, I don’t even know what a bog myrtle is, let alone why you would put it in a beer. Anyway, this one tastes like hay with moderate spice, decent body and a bitter finish. Drinkable. Addendum: I guess bog myrtle was an ingredient of gruut, in the medieval non-hop brew. So it’s the pope’s fault that it’s in my beer :-)

nihilistfranz (14) - Massachusetts, USA - MAR 26, 2012
This beer poured out with a tall white frothy head. Foggier then most Belgium styles I think. Rich taste and a creamy carbonation makes for a delicate palate. Good lacing around the glass the whole time. Has a strong aroma of honey suckles.

HenrikSoegaard (12930) - Randers, DENMARK - MAR 17, 2012
Bottle. Frothy white good fully lasting head. Moderate malty and hoppy aroma. Moderate bitter flavor. Average moderate bitter finish. No spice here. Oily palate.

imdownthepub (12917) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 12, 2012
Bottled, 330ml from Burg Bieren, Ermelo, Netherlands. Clear gold with white head. Well, the old Bog Myrtle flavour then, must be the 3rd of these over the years. Can’t say that I noticed it that much, the beer was crisp, lemony, a tad sweetish with a Belgian yeasty spiciness. A pretty decent beer overall.

BelgaBart (51) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM, BELGIUM - MAR 7, 2012
Got this from a organic supermarket in Antwerp. This is a beer made/trough natuurpunt (a organisation welfare of nature and animals in Flanders). This beer, looks very nice. Golden colour, hazy, nice froppy head. Nice floral smell, with a small hint of a sweet hops. Flavore is very herbal, soft with a slide of bitter aftertast. texture kinda biscuity. Very easy drinkable, very nice :-)
