beardfear (87) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 22, 2010
From a bottle in Zürich. Pours a soft light orange. Pungent floral and herbal aroma. Flavour is of herbs, flowers and dishwashing detergent. Negligible hop or malt influence. Light carbonation. This is disgusting.

TBone (13002) - Pori, FINLAND - JUN 13, 2009
Bottled swing top (BB 11/2009). A bit hazy golden color, small white head, some lace. Herbal, ginger aroma. Thinnish palate. Lemon, herbs, sweetish notes in the flavor. Not much hemp in this beer. More like flower tea or something ...

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - MAR 10, 2009
Bottle at nearbeer’s Spring Cleansin’. Pours gold with tight white head. The aroma is sweet and extremely floral with spring spices, lemon, and even a hint of blueberry. Hemp is detectable, but I think it’s more the power of suggestion. Flavor is herbal and semi-sweet, lots of floral hemp notes, and a light bitter finish. Strange, but I kind of like it.

nearbeer (3847) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 10, 2009
500 ml, cracked at the Spring Cleansin’. Clear gold with a lasting ring of bubbles. Floral, honey and spicy hemp aromas. Flavor is pretty much the same. Light-medium body is tingly and dryish. Thanks to Allen for this one.

lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 10, 2009
nearbeer’s Spring Cleansin’. Sample from a bottle thanks to nearbeer. Pale yellow pour with a thin white ring. Aroma is pale sweet malts, a herbal spice that I can only assume is hemp. Taste is leafy and resinous hemp. A bit sweet and a lot like a heather ale.

LordCorkscrew (1774) - Ronco Scrivia (GE), ITALY - FEB 5, 2009
Non certo la migliore della serata, bevuta la notte (verso le 3 o le 4) dopo averla presa al Pub del Duca (grazie Roberto!); l’aroma è piuttosto curioso/piacevole ed è forse l’unico punto di interesse di una birra altrimenti non molto evoluta, che forse gioca un po’ sulla pubblicità dovuta all’ingrediente e alla polemica connessa.
