joet (2538) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - NOV 9, 2002
The best hemp beer I’ve had. Incredible aroma -- it must be a distilled fraction -- incredibly bright, like dandelions. Refreshing, lemony citric, belches could land you in jail in the States.

DJMonarch (9179) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2006
Bottle at Chillout Zone, Dietikon 13/01/2006 Clear golden coloured and smooth on the palate with a skunk aroma. Spicy and fruity lime flavours. Some dryness in a crisp malt flavoured finish.

Embrouille (2835) - SWITZERLAND - APR 19, 2008
Bottled 50cl. It pours a hazy yellow beer with a beautiful creamy white head. The nose is dominated by hemp. Some gooseberries appearing. The taste is mainly of hemp. A subtle bready component sneaking in. Wonderful lacing. Sweet and hoppy accompanied by a hint of lime. Some gooseberries. Decent mouthfeel. A hint of marzipan and wild strawberries in the finish. A very good beer.

Pindoc (121) - SWITZERLAND - SEP 6, 2014
Das Hanfbier hat einen dichten weissen Schaum. Die Farbe ist ein trübes helleres Ocker. Dises Bier trägt zu Recht den Namen Hanfblüte, denn ein satter Hanfduft steigt in die Nase. Die milde Hanfflüssigkeit umspielt sanft den Gaumen. Man hat wirklich einen Hanfgeschmack im Mund, der nicht bitter ist. Ein Bier das wirklich hält was es verspricht!

Bov (11965) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - NOV 28, 2001
pale orange colour, fine head, earthy and nutty nose with a subtile note of hemp, full and slightly oily, the sweetness is well-balanced by the dry hemp aftertaste - very nice; reminds me the space cakes of Amsterdam

IlBevitorediLA (452) - ITALY - MAR 17, 2012
Si presenta con un aroma erbaceo e di canapa, tipo amaca, con qualcosa di pompelmo. Il gusto è molto erbaceo, di canapa, liscio, con qualche aroma di zest di agrume e si presenta con un perlage molto fitto e persistente. Beverina e rinfrescante.

nazzty (1271) - Ödåkra - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - AUG 2, 2013
Sour as a Berliner Weisse but slightly milder in taste. Good and refreshing to slightly heavier food.

jmgreenuk (7675) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - NOV 1, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 2, 2012 Bottle at Drinks of the World, Bern. Straw colour pour with a thin white head. Aroma, what aroma. This beer stinks of grass man! Refreshing spicy peppery bitter flavour with a hint of grass. Well actually loads of grass! Why don’t they sell this in Amsterdam? Much better than I expected. Shame I couldn’t smoke it :-)

squarta (68) - - DEC 9, 2012
Particolare e’ il primo aggettivo che viene in mente sorseggiando questa birra. Nel profumo prima e nel sapore poi emerge con prepotenza una spezia che la mente fa fatica a catalogare... a me e’ venuta in mente la cannella ad esempio. Voltando la bottiglia si scopre che l’ingrediente "segreto" e’ la canapa e allora mi accorgo di quanto sono stato troppo un bravo ragazzo da giovane :) La birra e’ molto interessante anche se un po’ sbilanciata nel sapore che pur essendo raro non ha corpo ne’ amaro sufficiente a mantenere equilibrate le sensazioni in bocca.
