from crackedkettle.com - pours a translucide bronze colour with a solid creamy white foam; estery aroma of pear and apple, some undefined spices; sweet and slightly acidic; medium to full-bodied; short and a bit sweetish fruity and slightly spicy finish - fresh, dynamic and with an interesting character

Thx to Joris. Botle conditioned. Poured a light gold blond beer with a minimal head, quickly dissapearing and no lacing. Medium carbonation. Aroma of hay, barnyard, this beer is infected but I liked it, very nice. The taste is slightly sour wit h a note of bitterness, hay and barnyard all around. Very nice lasting bitterness in the aftertaste. I think a rerate would be appropriate whenever I can get my hands on a non infected one.

This is a pretty decent pale lager, light bodied, slightly oily mouthfeel. Sweet and grassy. Got this in a gift pack from the original Groninger, Paul.

Disparate light head, fast gone, over very carbonated beer, with a champagne-like colour and appearance. Nose of sour hay, yeast - this is a benign infection! A bit of ’t putteke . Fleetingly sourish, then an equally short-lived bitterness, tad metallic, reverting to more classical pilsner flavours with some grassy and hay - but hay that’s been long out there withouth drying. Very light bodied. A bit sharp, but not burning MF. As said, this is infected, but in a pleasing way. It’s quite original in it’s style! Thanks Dean.

Slightly herbal, grassy, citric aroma. Citric, grassy flavor with an upcoming grapefruity tarness (infection?) and a light hop character, especially revealing itself in the aftertaste. Not bad.

Some people here called it metalic and that is a fair description. Has some hoppiness and grassiness too.

Bottle. Creamy white excellwnt fully lasting head. Yellow colour. Light malty moderate hoppy aroma. many fruity esters, banana? Moderate bitter flavor. Tastes of barnyard, really not my style. Very creamy palate. Strange beer tastes more like a light belgian ale. I wonder what yeast is used here.

Bottle at home. Sour scented Lager. Appel color. Some texture of taste - not much. An apple-flavoured beer. A bit weak. Hoppy finish.

Bottled. Golden colour, mediumsized white head, which lasts for long and leaves nice lace. Aroma is malts, hops and some slight estery notes. Flavour is fruity slightly hoppy along with some sweet malts also.

lachesis (757) - St Idesbald, BELGIUM - JAN 16, 2007
Very pale cristal clear yellow beer with a quick disappearing head. The aroma is domiated with hints of green bananas, dried grass, cheap fruit candies, toilet soap, and some herbs. Taste is original for the style, it has a lot of taste but it has no finesse at all. It is sweet with a dryish caracter, banana accents all over and herbs and some hops in the end.
