Swaroga (2023) - Gdańsk, POLAND - 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 (15595) - Dublin, 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 (3886) - 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.

33cl bottle at home. Hazy orange with a medium white head. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Sweet and bitter. Flowers, herbs, spices and hops. It has its very distinct own taste, which I really liked. Very refreshing.

NikkTwist (2608) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 18, 2013
Draft at Eulogy. Hazy blonde pour with a large frothy lacey white head. Strong honey flavors. Dandelions. Grains of Paradise. Green bananas. Lavender. Sweet, but the floral notes dry out the finish. Different.

EddyBeer1 (1058) - Brussels, BELGIUM - OCT 4, 2013
Orangée, effervescence moyenne-forte, col crémeux beige clair. Fraîcheur maltée et herbale en ouverture pour suivre avec une amertume moyenne des plus agréables, sans oublier l’une ou l’autre note de miel et de fruits. Hélas, le côté épicé reste trop permanent et finit par gêner sur la longueur.
