PapaVillum (826) - Valby, DENMARK - MAR 21, 2016
Mahognifarvet Traditional/Herbal Ale med offwhite skumtop på 3-4 cm, som svinder til landskaber og senere kant og overflade. Rolig, ufiltreret og med gærrester fra eftergæringen. Dejlig krydret, næsten medicinsk, aroma af bl.a. timian og koriander. Dejlig blød mundfølelse leder vejen til en lækker bittersød smag præget af krydderier og noter af hostesaft. Middel sødme og let til middel bitterhed. Mellem til rund fyldig krop og en karbonering på et nyk under middel, som giver førnævnte bløde mundfølelse. Konsistensen er olieret, næsten cremet. Afslutningen er bittersød og tør. Overall: Et dejligt eksemplar i genren Herbal Ale med rigtig god mundfølelse. 330 ml, flaske, 8.5 % ABV, BB: 18/12/16, købt i Kvickly Allerød. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bobson (67) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - MAR 12, 2016
Bottle @ Buitenlust. Looks quite dark with a small foamy head and consistent overall. Smells a bit burned and hoppy and not too strong. Taste gives you more of that expectation with a hint of sweetness, reminds a bit of caramel. Overall, a solid beer I would happily drink again.

Moebbels (661) - FINLAND - FEB 23, 2016
A clear dark brown body with absolutely no head. Nose is herbal with notes of yarrow, juniper and dandelion. Taste is sweet with a jagermeisterlike herbal bitterness that is very smooth and soft. Soft carbonation and rich, sticky palate. Very nice beer with a lovely smooth herbal taste instead of the expected harsh bitterness.

jamaty (1750) - Madrid, SPAIN - FEB 16, 2016
Marrón rojiza, espuma ocre que no dura nada. Aroma licórico, notas ácidas y herbales. Recuerda licor de hierbas. En boca disimula bastante el alcohol y tiene un sabor poco convencional como resultado del añadido de hierbas. Base de miel, y hierbas aromáticas, que le dan en todo caso un sabor que recuerda al de algún licor. Interesante.
