Immediate gushng upon opening gets rid of a small glass worth of beer. Despite the relentless foambuilding, hardly any head in the glass... ominous. Fully hazy amber beer. Sour nose with clear lavender, acids, citrus. Some other strange aroma that I tend to correlate to the heather. Sour, with a resiny background (again the heather?). Lavender retronasal up in force. Bitterness - probably more the dandelion than hops. Light body, acidthinning and -burn. Letís say it are the flowers that make it Interesting, rather than the other dread I-word.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Beer & Beyond, Tel Aviv. Cloudy orange-bronze with small off-white head, with lots of sediments. The aroma is very floral, soapy, lavender, chamomile, spicy, with some citrus. Very spicy and floral aroma, very soapy, green tea hints, green apple, grapes, chamomile, lavender, dry sour finish. Light carbonation, medium-bodied.

DSG (8627) - Tel Aviv, - DEC 20, 2014
Bottle sample at a Beer And Beyon,d sour beers tasting at their shop. Muddy orange-amber with small dark floaties and almost no head. Floral spiciness aroma with lots of lavender, somewhat soapy, and a funky note. Sour funky flavor with fruits and big floral spiciness. Medium-bodied. Way too spicy for my liking.

Nice. Sour but not acidic. Lots of subtle mulled cider spices , reminiscent if a grut beer. Very drinkable and refreshing. Unique

KnutAlbert (6393) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 6, 2014
Sample at Zythos 2014. Yes, it is sour and flowery. Rose petals, sour fruit, balsamico. Maybe a bit too flowery?

Countbeer (5337) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - MAY 23, 2014
Bottle: Served in a shaker: Foam snake. Off white foamy head on top of a hazy to murky orange amber colored beer. Aromas of spices, musk, apple pie/apple cake, cloves, some citrus, some rose mary, cinnamon and a hint of 7up. Flavours of white pepper, apple pie, cloves, citrus, bitter, sprinkle of rose mary, malts, some ginger, cinnamon and herbs... Aftertaste is cloves with yeast and light peppery touch, some bitters, citrus and malts. Low carbo, light creamy mouthfeel, medium bodied and a light watery texture. This is strange stuff, not bad but canít finish a 75cl of this strange beer... Though I came really far!
