Alengrin (2431) - BELGIUM - AUG 23, 2014
Spice beer with ginseng; snow white, regular, fairly thick head, pale yellowish golden blonde colour, cloudy. Aroma of sweet malts, apple, peach, liquorice-like, resinous and earthy spiciness which I suppose is the ginseng, lemon, hay, grass. Restrained fruity sweetness like the Amber, quickly drying under a sharp, resinous, medicinal spiciness like coughing syrup, medium hop bitterish finish. Out of balance but kind of in-your-face and certainly unique, the kind of beer you either love or hate. I kind of appreciated its special profile.

Heel speciaal bier, een hele speciale smaak, maar ik vond het niet mijn ding.

ruigo (1244) - PORTUGAL - JUL 29, 2014
Shared a 33cl bottle. Pours an hazy very pale yellow colour with a thin white head. Grass, earthy and fruit aromas. Average carbonation and light body. Taste has some light sweetness and earthy notes. Overall, not something I would like to taste again.

MarcoDL (2384) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 22, 2014
Weird, don’t know what to make of it. The spices are nice, but don’t work too well with the other ingredients.

Bottle @ home thx to benzai. Hazy, misty yellow with a full white head. Little to no smell, mostly some herbs and spices. Tastes herbs and spices, malts, kinda weird. Thin to medium body, quite a lot of carbo.

sebletitje (6895) - Enghien, BELGIUM - NOV 16, 2012
33cl bottle. Dorée, col blanc disparaissant vite. Arôme de ginseng donnant ce profile herbacé rappelant des feuilles bouillies, le tout mélangé avec des houblons nobles et une présence levure. Palais profile me rappelant les sushis, poussiéreux, houblonnage à cru, sec et citronné/herbacé, aspect de feuilles de thé vert avec une effervescence haute.

Swaroga (1445) - Brussels, BELGIUM - NOV 1, 2012
33cl bottle. Hazy, yellow and green with small white head. Nose : earth and root aromas. Overall this beer has very delicate aromas overall. Sip : Delicate sweet cloud dominated by heavy ginseng flavor and bitter hopping. Some citrus notes and estery straw feeling in the background. The beer has a distinctive ginseng flavor but lacks a bit of roundness and richness. I’ll drink the whole bottle so it is enough of compliment.
