2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Geers. Pours dark yellow, almost orange, hazy with the yeast. Sticky retaining white head. Nose is rust/iron and when the head dies down more sweet peaches and such. Aroma is slightly clinical over syrupy grains. Flavor mostly sweet. Medium to low carbonation. Not very inspiring.

From tap with Brewer. Blond color, misty with off-white head. Nose has some Malts, yeast, sugar, spices, cookies. Taste is way overdone in the spices. Finish is bitter, even a bit fry. Creamy finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Gold pour some foamy film. Aroma of mild herbs thyme sage. Tastes thyme, honey, sweet, bitter finish. Like the bog myrtle - gold base is underwhelming.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Commissioned beer spiced with bog myrtle, which was commonly used ages ago. Has received a loyal following throughout the years especially among metalheads, I have no idea why. Snow white head, misty golden blonde, yellowish colour. Very sweetish spicy aroma from the bog myrtle, accents of banana, caramel, cinnamon; fruity taste with powerful spiciness coming up quickly, sweetish, almost medicinal, herbal hops in the end. A beer that separates itself from most others and that in itself is at least interesting.

Dit is nu eens een bier met een heel uitgesproken smaak. Veel mensen zal dit niet bevallen, maar ik vind het super. Wel niet voor heel de avond te drinken, maar zalig voor 1 te drinken.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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).

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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. ;-)
