On tap at Borefts 2013. Dark reddish-brown look, middle foam, middle carbonation. Slightly sweet-bitter taste with sidetaste which reminds me to some kind of candy from my childhood. Light density, pleasant aftertaste.

Poured amber with a tan head. I loved the unique aroma of this one. Lots of herbs with anise, coriander, and vanilla dominating, also hints of bread, honey, banana. Medium dense with plenty of carbonation. Very good.

Taste is not balanced in my opinion. Tastes like cough drop, I just did not like it, the taste was not pleasant. Not as complex as advertised.

Bottle@Voldby Ølmesse - Dark brown/red pour with tan head. Sweet spicy grainy malts, caramel, dark dried fruits, backing of hop nuances with floral and herbal notes. Pretty impressive.

MarcoDL (1545) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 3, 2013
Currently, it’s a trend to use gruit. This Jopen beer was one of the first to reinstate this old brewing tradition. It’s a very grainy beer, full of spices. Really tasty and quite good.

R2k2 (306) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 30, 2013
Dark, ruby-red beer, with a firm layer of foam. Somewhat sweet aroma, but it’s hard to find. Full, cola-like taste with a touch of alcohol. Slightly bitter, dry aftertaste. Donker, robijnrood bier, met een stevige kraag. Iets zoetig aroma, maar dit is ver te zoeken. Volle, cola-achtige smaak met de toets van alcohol. Licht bittere, droge nasmaak.

smaken: redelijk zoet, matig bitter, sterk, sterke caramouten, graan, droppig, lichte zoethouttonen

vreemd bier, niet zo bijzonder lekker
