Again that weird, unfresh smell. According to other raters it’s probably ginger. But anyway this beer is just off. Totally unbalanced, just weird.

Sehr trockener Gewürzantrunk mit etwas Herbe. Modrig nach Traube, hellmalzig, prickelnd. Zunehmend trockener, im Abgang dann insgesamt schwächer, nur noch belanglos herb und würzig. 7/6/7/5/6/6

Hazy murky orange color, small white head. Cellary, earth aroma. Flat mouthfeel. Earthy, a bit fruity. Propably infected and seems that MiP had same problem.

Bottled. Citrus aroma with some flowers. Orange/golden color, off-white irregular head, fair lace. Very spicy, gingerale-like flavors (yuck!), light sweet, metallic bitterness, rather thin. Not my kind of flavors and rather amateuristic.

Bottle shared by TBone, thanks!. Hazy golden colour, not much head. Aroma is very much wet earthcellar and mild caramel. Flavour is raisins, yeast, earth and caramel.

Thin head. Aroma has yeast and blackcurrant. Yeasty, very fruity flavor with some licorice. Fairly thin, just a bit watery. Nothing special.

I poured this beer looked at the colour, and while i was judging the colour i smelled something weird. Took a good sniff and i smelled Chinese food. That’s the best way i can describe it. Probably ginger-like. Also noticable in the taste. I like Chinese food, i like beer, but i don’t like Chinese food in my beer.

Bottle, 5%. Oxidized cardboard aroma. Cloudy copper colour, small white head. OK cardboard flavour, a little plastic. Does not seem fresh.
