JDBaker11058 (1958) - Maryland, USA - OCT 15, 2016
appearance: opaque purplish brown, creamy tan head, minimal lacing. aroma: dark malty notes (hint of chocolate) with nuts, caramel, and a bit of stone fruit. taste: semi-sweet caramel and molasses notes, with cherry, raspberry, hint of balsamic vinegar. finish: sweet-and-sour fruit notes give way to a little spice character--almost some root beer characteristics. notes: Bear with me here: tastes almost exactly like a traditional Kotbusser, although the traditional nutty notes are restrained, and combined with a bit of stone fruits. Creative; would drink again. Bottle from the Rare Beer Club.

floydslip (347) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 25, 2016
Slightly cloudy dark amber beer with a medium foamy tan head. Nose of candied almonds, caramel, and vanilla. Flavor is semi-sweet with some toasted brown bread, brazil nuts, and toffee finished by a mild sweetness that ends rather abruptly leaving a rather watery impression. Has some promise, but leaves me longing for a bit more flavor.

TBone (16194) - Pori, FINLAND - MAY 28, 2016
Swing top bottle 500ml (BDLX)
Murky brown color, small steady off-white head. Aroma is odd perfumic grainy-wheaty. Light to medium-bodied. Banana, grain, some chocolaty-fruity notes. Smooth palate. Decent sweetish wheat beer with typical bio beer grainy problems.

Avetixz (101) - GERMANY - MAY 19, 2016
Malty aroma, spelt, wheat, grainy, oats, bread, barnyard, yeast and some grassy hops. Pours semitransparent hazelnut brown liquid with a small, soapy head. Sweet and slightly sour taste, flavour notes of hazelnut, almond, spelt, tonka beans, dried fruit, lots of different grainy flavours, but also some light fresh citrus and grassy hops. Full body with a silky texture, average carbonation and a little watery finish. This is a decent beer, I like the variety in grains and the natural, organic taste. Due to the strong malty hazelnutty flavour the drinkability is not that high, but it doesn’t have to be.

labeerinthum (565) - Milano, ITALY - APR 30, 2016
Bottiglia. La bottiglia è chiusa col tappo a macchinetta e apertura è col botto, un botto impressionante. Il gusto al naso è di orzo, frumento e luppolo. L’intensità olfattiva è elevata e la persistenza olfattiva è sufficiente. Il cappello di schiuma a bollicine medie con carbonazione abbondante ha una buona tenuta e termina con un pizzo sul vetro. La consistenza del liquido è nuvolosa. Le bollicine sono fini, a carbonazione bassa, persistente ed insistita. Il colore è ambrato rossiccio carico tendente marrone, torbido. Il corpo è pieno. L’amaro è medio con un accenno di umami. L’intensità gustativa è normale e la persistenza gustativa è sufficiente. Le sensazioni boccali finali sono lunghe per una birra impegnativa. Il finale è astringente e complesso. Il retrogusto è di media intensità. L’aroma in bocca rimanda a sentori maltosi e di pane, frumento, orzo e fieno.

Foerdifuxx (230) - Franconia, GERMANY - APR 29, 2016
Hazy brown coloured beer with a medium, creme-coloured, medium-lasting head. Aroma is grainy (amelcorn?), hazelnuts, mold, roasted malt, caramel and sweet cacao. Taste is sweet fruity malty, nutty, bit like drinking chocolate. Finish is unfortunately a bit waterish. Medium to light body, soft carbonation, creamy texture.
