Bottle from Erzbierschof, Bern
Hazy blond color with medium sized head. Delicate aroma, there is some funkiness, light citrus fruits. Carbonated and smooth mouthfeel, very dry, with spicy character, also some light funky trait; reasonably bitter.

Large but short lasting white head on a solid cloudy straw body. Yeast on the nose not huge on the hops in the taste but very drinkable

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Attempts to gush, but waiting a bit solves that. Medium white
head. Yellow body made hazy by visible small particles. Earthy
oily fruity aroma with herbal notes. Dryish earthy oily resiny
taste with mealy herbal fruity notes. Mid-bodied. Mild,
slightly fizzy mouthfeel. Dryish resiny oily earthy aftertaste
with dusty minty herbal notes. Nice, drinkable, full of
character, and rather unusual. It’s realy the hoppy, minty aroma on
top of a mealy, earthy farmhouse base that defines the beer. (0.65l bottle, from Kihoskh,

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A bit odd. Orange coloured and unclear. Has a white head, medium duration. Hoppy aroma with fruity notes too. FLavor starts medium sweet, acid too. Moderate bitter finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
My Bottom Line :
This very dry and effervescent Belgian-style Ale showcases doughy yeast and earthy hops with their herbal angles.
Further Personal Perceptions :
-A sheet of foam covers the misty amber-hued golden.
-The earthy hop bitterness is prominent.
-There is lots of yeast in the bottle. Had to be careful upon pouring the second glass.
-Mild orange fruitiness appears midway.
-Although lots of fun, this is not a very memorable brew.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear golden color, and a nice head. Bottle fermented, so pour gently. Not a huge hop finish... earthy is a good description.

Très belle robe, très belle mousse consistante et qui tient.
La bière en elle même n’a pas une longueur en bouche hallucinante malgré les quelques pointes houblonnées qui restent en fin de bouche.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from trade but I forget who. Thanks! Labeled Batch #9/10, APR 2014. Pours a hazy orange gold with a nice creamy white head. Aroma if orange rinds, funky yeast, lemon peel, apples,and some spice. Flavor is citrus up front with and interesting hop bite and lingering spicy funky yeast to finish. Light bodied and lots of carbonation. Funk is very much on the front end and all the way through. Not bad.
