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

Tranquillity (1410) - 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 (374) - 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 (6299) - 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 (1511) - 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 (382) - 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 (1569) - 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.

dEnk (3775) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 18, 2010
Bottle @ home. Aroma has some malt, faint fruit, quite faint overall. Flavour is some fruit, some malt, a touch of metal and some swamp. Meh.

jeremytoni (2980) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - OCT 11, 2010
From a bottle poured an amber color with a good amount of head. Light spicy malty flavor with a quick finish.

marcus (6421) - Sacramento, California, USA - AUG 6, 2010
Bottle from City Beer. Pours hazy golden with a foamy white head and a honey and spice aroma. There is a sweet herbal flavor, bog myrtle I guess, with a peppery perfumed finish. A very odd brew, but not altogether disappointing.
