thewolf (11261) - Kolding, DENMARK - DEC 22, 2007
Bottle, bought @ Willems, Grobbendonk. Pours a clear golden with a small bubbly off white head. Aroma is very spicy, the lavender jumps out at me, oranges, ginger and some sort of leaves. Lively mouthfeel. Flavour is very powerfully spiced. The lavender is still there, some flowery hops appear, a little menthol and a great warming viniousness. Not nearly as perfumy as I’d expected from the aroma.

Koelschtrinker (11063) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 3, 2011
Kräuterartig hefig-süßer Antrunk mit eindeutigen Tendenzen in eine hellmalzig-würzige Richtung. Stark kräuterartig-gewürzig bleibend, es kommt im Mittelteil eine hopfige Note auf, welche aber gleich darauf von einem voluminösen Kräuteraroma verschlungen wird. Dieses, die Würzigkeit lenkende Aroma kommt etwas plötzlich vervor, man erwartet eher einen gleichbleibenden Aromenstrom. Zum Ende pendelt sichd as Ganze wieder ein, der Alkohol brennt etwas, das Bier ist süßlich und deutlich malzig neben der weiter vorhandenen Kräuternote. 7/11/12/12/10/12

330ml bottle (One Pint Pub, Helsinki, Belgian Week 2008)
Sweet fruity aroma. Taste matches - sweetness is caramelly, but with loads of malt too, very malty. A bit of ginger too. Very tasty and clean despite the sweetness.

pivnizub (9036) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - MAR 29, 2009
Bottle: Gushing, cloudy with lots of floaties and an astonishing sediment, smaller, slowly collapsing off-white foamy layer; bread and exotic fruits in the nose, completed by not very well hidden traces of herbal (peppermint ?) hops; moderate to solid sweet-bitter flavour, full bodied, creamy, soft MF; a tinge of warming alcohol (a bit brany-like) in the fruity-yeasty and bready finish. A powerful goody.......

MoritzF (8590) - Bochum, GERMANY - APR 7, 2009
(33cl bottle, as Hofgrobberke 2007, Lentebier, 8.0% abv) Cloudy, orange colour with yeast flakes swimming around and a short white layer. Sweet bready malty aroma with strong spicy notes of ginger and pepper. Moderately sweet flavour, medium bodied, slightly fizzy carbonation. Malt-accented base yeasty and light-fruity taste with spices getting stronger towards the sweet and bready, also pretty alcoholic finish with shades of herbal hops. Imo not particularly rounded and a bit too spicy (07.IV.09).

JorisPPattyn (8035) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - AUG 11, 2007
Yellowish small head, fast gone over orangey-gold beer, with a slight haze and a lot of UFO’s next. Very perfumey beer, lavender, rosemary, Canada poplar leaves, willow leaves. Very estery-spicy (Szechuan pepper?), and markedly bog myrtle, as well as again lavender (even when the ingredients don’t speak about such addition). Point, if unmistakable, of restsugar, and a touch of alcohol. Medium bodied, grist slickness. Aftertaste is spicy bitterness. Spicy, rather original beer. I keep wondering about the lavender.
