Poor Appenzellers! I wonder how they could call this beer! It tastes a little like soap in fact!

lupuLust (86) - Freiburg, GERMANY - SEP 26, 2016
UPDATED: SEP 27, 2016 24.09.2016 Basel - Golden yellow pour with medium unstable head. Breath of growing hemp and Lagerbier. Smooth and slightly hoppy also with a note of hemp. Interesting but way too sweet bubblegum taste.

Bosbouw (2686) - Gemonde, NETHERLANDS - SEP 6, 2016
Troebele citroengele kleur met een volle fijne kraag. Ruikt zoetig kruiden, gras, de hanfblute ruik ik denk ik ook goed. Smaakt bijzonder kruiden, wederom de hanfblute. Weinig koolzuur.

Clear yellow. Nice aroma and taste, judging from drinking out of bottle which makes it hard. (Rigi 201609)

Too strong taste of hemp. Taste similar to bay leaves. I didn't like it at all.

Bottle (Zeughauskeller, Zurich) pours cloudy gold with a white head; strong herbal aroma dominates all other scents; taste is also very herbal with some faint malt and spice notes; herbal finish; the overpowering herbal aroma and taste are a bit of a turn off for me on this one

500ml Bottle from Drinks of the World, Basel (4 CHF):
Strange but interesting, I was expecting a pale lager going in but instead got tonnes of spice, herbs & particularlly strong hemp flavours. Unusual & surprising with it growing on me the more I drank, it was unlike anything else I’ve drank but I’m unlikely to pick it up again.

330 ml bottle (even if I’m pretty sure that my bottle had less than that). Bought it in a Coop in Lausanne. Comment below me can’t say it any better: smell like herbal and pharmacies, is it good? I guess... at least is different. Color is a deep golden with low white head. Taste is also different, very herbal, guess it’s not bad, but it just taste like something that is good for my health, and when I’m drinking a beer I definitely don’t want that. Is not that easy to drink, even that being so peacefull has it is. Not my cup of thee, but I really could understand someone that deeply hate it or love it. Was great has a different experience.

Erzengel (7888) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - SEP 15, 2015
Bottle in Switzerland. Smooth mild beginning. Hints of sourish freshness, hints of dusty yeast. Slightly sweetish but not too intense or characterful. Nice sessionable but a bit too sweetish for me with hints of grain.
