2.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
2007 bottle, 750 ml with caged cork. Ready with a big Duvel glass in case of a gusher… but nope, not a problem this time. Pours reddish brown, fizzy like a soda, thin head. Smell is, um, like a rubber inner tube in the glass! Definitely, this got corked like a red wine. But a light herbal quality in the bottle. Wha hoppen? Okay, I can get past the nose and sip some of the beer, which is not as herbal as, well, other traditional ales, in fact, milder than some other old beers I’ve kept too long. So beyond the spoiled nose I find a slightly fruity ale, not too spicy and herbal, with a slight bit of tart marred by too much horseblanket. It’s a sign. I need to clear out my cellar!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A muddy, brown color with almost no head. Aroma is sweet, herbal, somewhat fruity, with a tad of liquor. A sweet taste also significantly marked with herbs - fruity, somewhat malty. A medium body, an oily texture, and a soft carbonation. Finish is long and unsurprisingly also herbal with a more notable bitterness. Overall the beer is atypical but nonetheless good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

Geruch leicht medizinisch, ein bisschen wie Campari. Zudem Sirup und Lakritz. Geschmack dann wie Lakritzschnecken und ein bisschen Schokolade. Kräftig, aber ausgerissen.
