33cl bottle @ DHVL. Pours a cloudy golden with a large white head. Yeast and spices. Bog-Myrtle and ginger feel all over. Reminds me of De graal Gember. One dimensional but well made.

Bottle, bought @ Willems, Grobbendonk.
[thank you Skou, for bringing this home]
Pours murky yellow with a fine, creamy, white head. Heavy earthy aroma with lots of spices. Ginger and what must be bog myrtle. Highish carbonation, fair frothy mouthfeel. Flavour is spicy, but not perfumed. Dry, some sweet biscuit malts, oak, ginger. Feels a bit out of balance.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle 33 cl. from natural food store in Leiden. Pours a slightly hazy orange with a medium white head and hoppy aroma with earthy and spicy notes. The falavour is a herby, bitter fruitiness with notes of citrus, cinnamon, malts and hops. The finish is a medicinal bitterness. A very nice surprise! Good beer!

Bottle from natural food supermarket in Amsterdam. Hazy yellow. Bitter nose with herby edge to it. Fruity, tart and rough. With slight citrus. Okay.

Great looking dark gold beer with thick tight head. Aroma is very strong. It has a medicinal edge to it caused by the gale/gagel. That comes through in the flavour too. Overall it is dominated too much by the herbs.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
It’s a slightly hazy, warm golden beer with a white, creamy head. The aroma is spicy, but I do not find the bog myrtle, and it also has notes of malt and alcohol. The flavour has sweetness and notes of spice and herbs, but no clear sign of the bog myrtle, it also has notes of tannic acid, malt and yeast. IMO it quickly becomes cloying.

330ml bottle (Punavuoren Ahven, Helsinki, Belgian Weeks)
Mustapippuri spicy aroma. Deep hazy orange, initially doughy head. Slightly vegetal hoppy aroma, metallic too. A touch sour malts, but peas and green beans come to the fore. Pretty yeasty too. Not my bag, too much plant matter. Decent hoppy bite, but not the prime focus, alas.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Dranken Geers. Hazy orange gold. Thin lasting white head. Spicy floral aroma. Definitely got something flowery or herby added to it. It’s got a real tinned peach flavour, crazy bizarre and tasty. I’m not a big fan of these perfumed beers, but this is good. Actually it does become a bit annoying.
