Christian (11021) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 20, 2012
Boreft Beer Festival 2012. Golden with a small white head. Aroma of citrus, especially lime peel, and a phenolic hint of band aid. Sweet malty flavour with a grainy note, and a touch of green herbs

brokensail (10607) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 1, 2012
Pours a clear golden color with a white head. Smells really odd. Lots of plastic, chlorine, and lavendar aromas. A bit of soap, some bread sweetness, maybe a bit of hibiscus, too. The flavor is sweet malt, apple, and a lot of the same floral lavendar and hibiscus notes. Not as much in the way of the chlorine or plastic.

Travlr (9999) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - SEP 30, 2012

Theydon_Bois (7935) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - OCT 13, 2013
Tap at Borefts ’13, 27/09/13. Lightly hazed golden with a thin off white covering. Nose is light hops, floral tones, toasty malts, citric notes. Taste comprises sprucey wood notes, pine forest, fresh tasting and clean, light citrus, pissy floral tang. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, dry in the closure with light bitterness and woody notes. Ok stuff, a good palate cleanser after a few strong numbers!

gnoff (7664) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - FEB 27, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 11, 2013 First rating
Draught at Ölrepubliken during "Närkevecka", on February 27, 2013
Hazy golden color, fairly big lasting cream colored head. Sweet, floral, summer meadow, weeddy flower scent after rain, bubblegum, curious and unusual, though not bad, scent. Sweet, herbal, floral, sugary, flower stems, some red berries, dew or rain infused meadow character taste. Sweet, herbal, bubblegum, floral aftertaste. Smooth mouthfeel, frairly moderate co2 level. Pretty low bitterness.
Since "Älgört/Älggräs" (Meadowsweet) was a farily common herb to use in flavoring of beer in sweden before hops became common this is an extra interesting beer for me. I now feel I want to pick some and make a beer of my own in this "old style" Swedish beer.
Uncommon but very nice and interesting scent and taste indeed.
After a while getting used to the first impressions I pick up loads of cinnamon on both and scent and taste that I didn’t get at first.

Draught at Bishops Arms Järntorget, on June 7, 2013.
Hazy honey color, fluffy white head. Floral, perfume, sassafras, fresh and nice scent. Fresh, perfume, floral, summer meadow after some rain and then sun taste. Floral, sassafras aftertaste. Medium mouthfeel, low bitterness.
Very very nice, especially the scent, and I feel again I want to brew something similar for a homebrew.
