Benzai (8545) - 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 (6768) - 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 (6800) - 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 (2892) - 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 (507) - 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.

txspartan (968) - Wilrijk, BELGIUM - MAR 9, 2011
I had never heard of bog myrthle before I tried this beer. It makes an interesting herb beer.

Tranquillity (1419) - 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 (6571) - 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 (1516) - 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.
