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.

Borefts VI. Day 2. ’Craig has blue nipples’ post fest tasting in his room. Light haze on this pale gold beer, good fluffy white head. Airy palate. Mild floralness and light sweetish esters. Dried fruits. Light finish. Okay, bit hollow for it’s abv.

Bottle split in Craigs room, Borefts Day 2 after party tasting, 27/09/14 thanks to the person who brought this number. Lightly hazed orange with moderate off white spotting and edgework. Nose is citric peel, grainy, spice, caramel. Taste comprises tangy citrics, lemon zest, straw, light spice, orange squash. Medium bodied, spritzy and overcarbed, semi drying close. So so, not much going on certainly when you take the 8% ABV into account!

corkyrory66 (699) - BELGIUM - OCT 25, 2014
Bière qui mérite tout à fait son classement en spice/herb (bravo ratebeer), puisqu’elle utilise pas moins de 6 herbes : pimprenelle, hysope, thym, myrte, ail et sarriette de montagne. On se croirait dans le chaudron de la Helleketelbier de chez de Bie … La plus forte proportion est accordée à la Pimprenelle, d’où le nom de la bière. Niveau abv de 8 %, pour un exemplaire ayant dépassé sa date de 4 mois. Couleur doré faible brillant. Clarté nette. Bulles fines en colonnes disparates. Mousse qui est un nappage diaphane. Arômes de blanc d’œuf, camomille, concombre, pointe d’oranges amères, thym. 1ère bouche soyeuse à la prise sur du malt clair, confit d’oignons, vin du Rhin. Arrière-bouche singulière sur malt claire et ail. 2ème aux saveurs un peu poivrées par la sarriette. Arrière-bouche de malt clair et agrumes, avec un peu de thym. 3ème sur des saveurs de grande chartreuse dues à l’hysope. Arrière-bouche davantage sur le thym et la myrte. La longueur donne une meilleure intégration, mais le haut pourcentage de pimprenelle fausse une harmonie qui aurait pu venir. Les jambes sont marquées. La levure est un peu légère, un peu mince, mais valable. L’alcool est bien proportionné, il travaille bien mais ne peut justifier l’équilibre. La finale est en-deçà. CONCLUSION : une bière faussée par l’insistance sur un ingrédient. Il est vrai qu’elle en tire son nom, mais une plus juste proportion aurait pu donner une vraie originalité à cette bière.

Alengrin (2425) - BELGIUM - AUG 22, 2014
Spice ale since 2010 with the garlic that typifies Jessenhofke but also fresh herbs grown by Sanguisorba in Ranst, a well-known brewery supplier of herbs and spices. The herbs in question are salad burnet, hyssop, thyme, savory and myrte. Snow white, regular head, misty peach blonde colour. Complex ’herbalness’ in the nose as can be expected, difficult to distinguish one from the other even though I am familiar with their aromas, very flowery, some candi sugar, some fruits and, as in the other Jessenhofkes, no noticeable garlic. Sweetish spiciness in the mouth and, much to my surprise, there it is: a faint hint of garlic in the background. Light mouthfeel, sweetish caramel malt base, dry finish with the spices further developing alongside a herbal hoppiness. Interesting if you are into spice beers.

Bottle from Douberd, many thanks.. Hazy Golden color with medium white head. Malty aroma with fruity notes. Perfumed malt, harsh bitterness in finish.

Gurthnar (2138) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAY 16, 2014
Bottle. Aroma spicy with light citrus fruits, light bubblegum. Rounded and inviting. Taste is rather sweet, both spicy and malty. A bit weird, not working with me. Finish turns somewhat tart. I am conflicted about this one.

Aroma is herbal with stewed vegetables. Flavour is unpleasantly herbal with disgustingly bitter, garlic-esque lingering aftertaste. Why?
