5000 (6184) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - SEP 19, 2013
Bottle:   Golden hued dark straw, very hazy, thin sudsy white head, decent lacing.   Soft floral aroma, bright wheatiness, along with minor spices.   Wheaty and grassy at first, with the soft floral notes.   Flavorful, strong, but not sharp.   Spices don’t translate onto the tongue as much as the nose suggested.   Body and mouthfeel are full to moderate.   Very wheaty finish, grassy, with faint floral notes.   Clean, but its like some parts of it need to be more pronounced, mainly the spices and floral notes.   Still tasty tho.

FlacoAlto (3759) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - DEC 26, 2013
A steady pour into my large Tripel Karmeliet tulip produces a three finger thick, pale tan colored head. The beer is a rich amber color that shows a mostly clear, bright, yellow-gold hue when held up directly to the light. The aroma has an earthy, peppery, sort of grassy note that reminds me of other elderflower beers that I have had. The earthy note also plays up a cracker like and straw like pale malt character. There is also a substantial fruit character here in the aroma, softly citrus, perhaps a touch of pear, and other general, green, and ripe fruit notes. The musty notes and earthy character are substantially contributed by the fermentation character, as are the fruit notes, and even a touch of spiciness.

Effervescently carbonated, a bit prickly in the finish, and quite light bodied without being watery. Spicy, herbal, green floral, and perhaps a bit of that elderflower bell pepper character that balances a lightly cracker like malt character, and a finish that has a pear and perhaps floral grape character. Peppery notes, perhaps a touch of ginger, a bit of clove in the finish, and some spicy higher alcohols add a bit of bite to this beer. There is a touch of hop bitterness here, actually a tad more than a bit, but the beer still finishes with a bit of fruit character and a perceived sweetness.

This is nicely balanced, elder flower can get a bit overwhelming, but this manages to be held well in check so that the rest of the beer can be noticed.

Thanks to 5000 for sending me this bottle. Pours a golden color with a white head. The aroma is full of floral notes with some wheat and yeast notes. The flavor is similar, but a bit more complex. I get some strong berry character as well as some floral notes, wheat, biscuit malt, yeast and pepper. As the beer warms there are also some strong herbal notes coming through. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Nice beer.
