Spirula (which is typically sold under the name Spirulina) is a type of edible algae with a high content of proteins and amino acids. It is a very popular supplements that can be purchased in health food stores, and the algae contains a lot of healthy things and recommended, inter alias, to dieting.
This is my first beer brewed with Spirula. It is black and has a nicely persistent foam. Slightly spicy aroma and a taste of hard roasted malt with a spicy undertone. It certainly must be Spirula! How Spirula taste is very hard to describe. I sense it as something vegetable slightly in the direction of gentle kale or parsley. It is a very pleasant tang to a schwarzbier but puts perhaps the beer type bluntly. In this case it is good, because it replaces the hop bitterness and brings a freshness to the beer.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle from bierpost.de. Pours a deep chestnut brown colour with a small off white head. Aroma is very malty, rather medicinal, with some dark fruit. Reminiscent of an African non-alcoholic malt beverage. Taste is an unbalanced mix of sweet, sours and bitter. Didn’t really like it and I’m not sure I’d want this again even if it’s properties were true.

Recht würziges Piwo mit getreidigen Anklängen und etwas Heu. Vom Gefühl her etwas leicht, simpel, unspektakulär. Aber dennoch sehr trinkbar. In Ordnung.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours out of the bottle in a deep black colour with low head and thin body. Aroma of malt and brown sugar. Taste of spicy malt, herbs, caramel, chocolate and woods. Earthy finish with many sweet parts. Too sweet for me, otherwise just a thin but drinkable beer.

DWF; A have to have. Pours clear brown to black with a fading off-white head. Aroma and taste is malty, grassy, dark fruity and caramell with hint off metallic eggs. Is this the secret anti aging incridiens? Medium body, oily texture. Avarage carbonation. Medium lasting, bitter finish. To be re-rated next week and the week after.. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Pours clear copper brown with small and quickly vanishing off-white head. Clear aroma of roast, fruit, yeast, malt and sugar. Roasty and perfumed aroma, with some notes of hops and fruit. Rather watery despite considerable carbomnation. Mild finish. The beer does not offer any gustatory experience worth mentioning. Next time I have a bottle, I will probably use the content as bathing tonic. Perhaps it will make me young again (but hopefully not silly).
