Bottle shared at a tasting at tomerís place. Murky honey-brown with white film. Honeydew, yeast, a little spicy, perfume-like aroma, sweet and yeasty taste with some honey. Medium-to-full body, some plastic and soft fizz.

Bottle sample at a tasting. Thanks kerenmk. Hazy orange amber color. Smell of candy, yeast and fruity esters. Sweet sugary flavors of honey, candy and alcohol. Medium-bodied, sticky, quite hard to drink.

tomer (2523) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - AUG 31, 2015
At a tasting, small bubbly head, cloudy rusty orange to very light brown color, honey and wax aroma with some candy in the back, flavor of manure and a strange spiciness with some dried fruits in the back as the beers warms up, very sweet and alcoholic. Over the top, almost undrinkable.

750ml in Peja, Kosovo. So great, Alberto! Rosy bright red, thick soapy foam. Great bright aroma. Finishes darker caramel than expected. Some alcohol richness. Some smokiness to malts too. Dry finish. Really lovely.

mansquito (4644) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUN 24, 2015
Owl Farm, Brooklyn tap: Pours orange with a white head. Aroma is dark fruit, earthiness, a little bit of alcohol, and some yeast. Taste is a little bit sweet. Plenty of fruitiness and earthiness. It is more subdued than one might have expected. That said it was good.

A loud pop when I popped the cap, which has a curious plastic cylinder thingy attached to it. Hazy copper coloured with plenty of sediment floating around. The smell is big on toasted malt with side notes of Belgian yeast and some conglomerate of spices. The taste is spicy, again, not easy to distinguish which, with toasted malt, Belgian yeast...maybe that spice is or at least reminds me of rye. No mention of rye in the beerís deScription but that wonít stop me from mentioning it. This also has a dankness and earthiness to it. And the finish? I get light fruity tones that make it on the dry side. Okay, this beer really has me befuddled; Iím now getting hints of horse blanket as it warms up and you probably know what that would suggest. Overall, Iíd say smell wins over taste. This is weird and I will just have to let the cards fall where they may. If you see bottles of it, give it a go.
