paulvanpelt (524) - Reusel, - DEC 19, 2012
Bleekgeel, blond bier. Weinig schuim, maar toch levendig. Kruidig en gistig aroma, wat logisch is met de vele kruiden die erin zitten. Maakt het complex en interessant, maar niet perse ontzettend lekker. Wel een prima bier met een bitterdroge nasmaak.

Beerhunter111 (16457) - Hasborn, GERMANY - JUN 19, 2016
33cl bottle. Pours almost clear pale golden colour with a huge most good lasting white head. Aroma of mild spices, lime and pale malt. Taste of pale malt, spices, herbs, lemon, okay!

Hazy yellow, white coloured beer with a small white head. Aroma is weird and spicy. Flavour is evenly weird. (Bottle 75cl)

75cl. Dull pour, small foam, dark amber. A: anise, malts, lime note, some spices and herbs. T: malts, orange zest, anise note, pleasant herbal bitter development. Feels like Eastern brew. Long bitter finnish, herbal.

Bontus (749) - Flanders, BELGIUM - MAR 1, 2016
Bottle, 33cl. Pours golden yellow, dense head. What a list of herbs! Alas no golden ticket to aroma heaven. Quite balanced, spices not distinguishable, slight bitter. Maybe a bit underwhelming

GSAP (689) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 31, 2015
Aparte smaak combi, thijmhoestsiroop, suikerwerk en appelsap. Aroma heeft die elementen ook, maar lichter, meer dikke pils. Weinig kraag op licht troebel geel. Zachte smaak, fijn overzichtelijk complex.

Icedwarf (1217) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - SEP 5, 2015
Licht troebel lichtgeel bier met weinig schuim. Smaak is bitter hopppig en kruidig, iets van basilicum en oregano met zuur fruit. Aparte maar toch goede smaak. PMPRNL versie gedronken.

TheFoamhead (261) - Vught, NETHERLANDS - MAR 13, 2015
Maybe I should start with the list of ingredients: besides the ordinary beer ingredients, Jessenhofke uses brown sugars, burnet (pimpernelle), savory, hyssop, thyme, mirthe and garlic! Whet do you think now? Well, I think I thought the same - but itís not that disgusting! Honestly, itís not disgusting at all. Itís different, sure, and the taste is obviously very complex. But itís well balanced, has a flowery sweetish mouthfeel and a nice heavy alcoholic finish. Itís so different and against the stream of the IPA hype that itís something I really can appreciate. A challenge for beer sommelliers and a nice beer from time to time. This is not a normal beer - itís like a well composed dish! You donít know whatís in, you cannot differenciate all the ingredients but the taste composition is lovely.
