brnandersen (3352) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 27, 2016
Sample from bottle, CBWF 2016. Muddy, amber colour with a thin, off-white head. Sweet, spiced aroma with herbal notes, grains, fruits, citrus, caramel malts, peppers and sage. Taste is light sweet. Medium body with a creamy texture and a soft carbonation. Finishes slightly dry with herbal notes. Strange, yet enjoyable.

MatusBeer (502) - Košice, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - AUG 1, 2016
330 ml bottle. Hazy dark red colour with stable head off. Aroma of herbs, spicy, sweet. Taste of elderflower, spices, too much sweetness. Don´t know what to think about this beer, aroma of good, but it was really hard to drink this beer.

Bottle at home, 30/07/16. Bought from Saviere Biers. Extremely sweet aroma, unlike a beer. More like dadelion and burdock (spelling) or such like. Murky dark toffee in appearance. Small amount of off-white head. Smooth, medium bodied. The spices come through, a hint of a burning sensation on the tongue. Sweet with an underlying bitterness. Medicine. Tastes like a alcoholic soft drink. Overall I am enjoying it.

dinkle50 (1366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 25, 2016
Muddy brown pour with a very thin head that faded quick. Aroma is sweet, raisin like, maybe fig or plum too. Full mouth. Really sweet. Slight alcohol flavor and a rose water like quality to it. Dry finish, almost astringent even. Leaves your mouth feeling prickly. Sweet fruity notes of stone fruit and raisin. Toffee as well. A little bit of herbaceous quality as it warms. A little lace present.

Tayeth (542) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUL 15, 2016
Geruch leicht medizinisch, ein bisschen wie Campari. Zudem Sirup und Lakritz. Geschmack dann wie Lakritzschnecken und ein bisschen Schokolade. Kräftig, aber ausgerissen.

jgentgesdo (692) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - JUL 12, 2016
Pours translucent brown with a moderate medium brown head. Nose is cherries, some sourness, a little mustiness. Very sweet, flavor is cherries, candied berries, heavy malt. No bitterness at all. Mild alcohol body. Oddly watery mouthfeel, with a little chalkiness. Overall I like it quite a bit.
