Abio (1683) - Waasland, - 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.

Even, thin, lasting lace. Sweet, herbal aroma. Floral, and sweet yeast taste. Kind of leafy on the tongue too. Really enjoying the tea-like flavors.

11.2oz bottle, thanks to aabean for bringing this back from her cali trip and sharing. Date on the cap reads 06/06/14. Hazy orange amber color. Thin off-white head. Decent ridges of lace. Medium to bigger body. Kind of slick. Light carbonation. Very interesting sweet, herbal minty afroma, I guess that’s that myrica gale (you know, bog myrtle). Moderate sweet taste, mild bitter, less spicy than most belgian ales. Very tea-like. ginger. Enjoying it a lot more than I expected to. Pleasant to sip on.

blackisle (1049) - IJburg, NETHERLANDS - MAR 6, 2015
Bottle 33cl. Slightly hazy medium golden, large frothy white head, diminishes slowly, fair lacing; strong sweet bog myrtle aroma, anis, orange peel, yeasty; taste medium sweetbitter, herbal, bit medicinal; medium body, oily to creamy texture, soft carbonation; aftertaste full of herbal bitterness; a very interesting beer, not for everyday but on the whole quite nice.

BlackHaddock (4593) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAR 3, 2015
7th Feb 2015: Brugge Beer Festival. Golden pour from the tap, white topping (just about). Bog Myrtle? Spicy, floral and herbal nose with a mild yeastiness in the background. Taste is maltier than the aroma hints at, finish is more bitter: decent and different.

bartlebier (2432) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - FEB 9, 2015
Tap opener@BBF 2015, ZA. Pollenherbal, flower bitters in aroma, unlocateable nettle tea-like "bog myrtle" battling it out with honey malts, dressed in soft yeasty mittens. Mid creamy palate. Elegant finish, well composed. The bulky Belgian honeyed cousin, Proef-smooth, to Ricklinger’s sourish & still wild Porsebier.

Tognetta (197) - Campinas, BRAZIL - FEB 3, 2015
Amarelo vivo, convidativo. Aroma herbal levemente adocicado, transparece um pouco do álcool. A carbonaçao se faz presente e enche a boca com o sabor, que vai ficando mais adocicada. Aftertaste persistente. Uma cerveja diferenciada, não conhecia nada parecido em questão de sabor, muito boa!

Icedwarf (584) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - DEC 26, 2014
Helder geel bier met weinig schuim. Smaak is bitter hoppig bitter en licht zoet met sporen van anijs en een kenmerkende kruidige aparte smaak van waarschijnlijk gagel. Al met al een goed bier.
