Erg lekker kruidig bier! Zeer aparte smaak door het gebruikte gagelplantje uit turnhout!

33 cl. bottle split with Kogymo. Procured @ Willems. Clear apple golden with basically no head. Nose is intensly herbal, herbal garden, lots of what I assume is Bog Myrthel, very typical. Carbonation is totally out of control, this beer just explodes in your mouth once you take a sip, weird and not beneficial in any way. Taste is same odd bitter herbal, plant-like nature with aspirin & lousy BE slightly boozy apple juice & sweetener taste, medicinal almost in its herbal nature. Okay, somewhat interesting but the base & the overall taste are not really my thing.

If funky beer is your thing, you may find this an interesting change of pace. Murky golden/orange with a lot of carbonation. The Bog Myrtle gives this a bitter herbal taste, and the finish is more bitter (kind of nasty).

Wow!! This thing is seriously carbonated. Not, gusher overflowing carbonated. But, lots of bubbles coating the inside of the glass. Clear yellow body with huge two finger white head. Aroma reminds me of a domestic pilsner. Flavor is rather sour/bitter/woody, which lingers on the palate as well. My first Bog Myrtle brew and probably my last. ;-)

Strange/nice chocolate aroma, otherwise not spectacular. Would not seek out again, but ok.

Bottle, pours a hazy light amber, small head. Nose is very faint; unique spice. Flavor is fairly bitter, slightly citrus; full carbonation. Bog myrtle in the house!

markschiedon (184) - NETHERLANDS - APR 29, 2014
Drinking from a 33 cl bottle. A subtle sweet flowery aroma. Some spices come up when it warms up. The unclear orange beer has a medium white head. In the taste I have honey and a spice I can’t define, probably the gagel... Medium carbonated.

Maakun (522) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 11, 2014
Slightly hazy golden with white head. Massive herbal spices, I guess this is the gagel. Nice medium sweet malts, lots of berries, some citrus and light herbal bitter finish. Interesting stuff.

Flaska från beernavigator.com. Disig, gyllengul högt vitt skum. Örtig doft med tydliga porskaraktär, lite blommigt tvålig och korianderfrön. Frisk med tydlig porssmak och om man inte gillar det gillar man inte den här drycken för smakbilden är ganska endimensionell. Lite oljig, lätt men tydlig beska. Trevlig i vårsolen. Gott

Drunk from 33 cl bottle bought from Malting Pot, Brussels. Pleasant blonde beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
