3fourths (8238) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 22, 2012
bottle, best by December 2012.
hazy pale gold body with a medium-sized fine white head. first whiff right off the pour is surprisingly bacteria-like and strongly phenolic - it honestly smells like some brett a pedio, though it breathes out after a few minutes and the smell is much more typical of a kellerbier or zwickel: acidic and pungent dried citrus hops, grass / hay / barnyard mustiness, etc. tingly, zesty acid on the tongue with some graininess and sharpness throughout. this bottle seems a bit faded but the grain husk character certainly seems intentional, and out of place for sure. light body with noticeable syrupiness and a slick, oily finish.

motelpogo (7040) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - FEB 25, 2012
bottle from landbierparadies. poured very pale hay colour with a slim head; aroma of half-cooked porridge; greek yoghurt, lime zest; pleasantly grainy, just needed double the hops - it would have been an excellent beer with a fruitier, more bitter finish

Grima (2124) - Saarburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - FEB 4, 2012
Sorry for the german rating, but this is a lousy rating from my "newbie" time (2007-2009), and it’s not worth of being translated. I just added it for the statistics, and to complete my backlog!
Schöne mittelporige Schaumkrone, die sehr lange hält. Die Farbe geht Richtung Zitrone, und es ist nur leicht trüb. Der Geruch ist fruchtig und leicht säuerlich. Der Antrunk ist schön hopfig herb, mit einer leichten fruchtigen Herbe im Nachgeschmack.
