1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle from an Öko-supermarket in Berlin.
Spicy aroma, peculiar taste profile. Wheat-like flavour, some pepper.
Thin, weird and unpleasant beer.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Blonde. Grainy aroma with a hint of orange. medium bodied. Grainy vague bitter flavor with fruity notes. Hints of orange and flour. Feels heavy on the tongue. Best gluten free beer I’ve tasted so far, but that doesn’t say much.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle (thanx to joss !): Golden coloured, mid-sized, a bit lacy head; robust sweetish-grainy, a bit bubble-gum-like aroma with bready or doughy notes, some shy hops detectable; moderate sweet-bitter flavour, quite light bodied; sweet-fruity finish with quite a restrained bitterness. Strange, but drinkable.......

Clear blond coloured beer with average carbonation and an average white head. Sweet, artificial citrus fruity aroma, with grainy touches. Medium smouth palate. Finish is sweet malty, special (dough) and dry. Feels heavier than the 5%. Ok.

2.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Unfortunately, it’s a weak beer that I had after a stiff short espresso, so my taste buds were not entirely in good shape. Pours golden, with a nice head if you try, but it dissipates within a minute. Strong fruity scent upon opening dissipates quickly once poured. Aroma turns to a earthy cilantro with faint metallic overtones which is not too pleasant as you bury your nose in the glass for a sip. Flavour is quite unremarkable by itself; a sort of sweet fruity chalky taste. A sort of citrusy barnyard, if you will. Poor palate is due to its being a sweet, weaker beer with small carbonation. A difficult beer to rate, as it’s entirely unremarkable and yet is very remarkable. Quite different than anything I’ve had before, yet it is unmistakeably a beer. Overall, a must-try, but probably will never be a favourite.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Golden, big bubbles, off-white creamy head. Sugary dmf aroma. Light bodied sugary grain base, light sulphury hop counterpoint. Ok I can see why the grainbill might taste unusual, but why not bring it up against much more floral hops instead, or make it top-fermented to add some fruity notes? This is just boring.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottled. A golden beer with a bubbly white head. The aroma is sweet with a light note of wheat as well as some dishwash water. The flavor is very sweet, cloyingly so with notes of malt, wheat, citrus, leading to a dry wheaty finish. Not my thing.
