MoritzF (8776) - looking for a flat around Munich, GERMANY - AUG 30, 2015
(bottle) Hazy, pale golden coloured hue with particles floating around and a medium-sized and minimally off-white foamy head. Yeasty, barnyardy and delicately wheaty aroma with slightly fruity notes, ginger and herbal spice, as well as traces of urine. Mildly bitter and delicately sour flavour, rather slim bodied with a surprisingly tame carbonation. Slim and delicately bready malty and slightly wheaty base with present spicy notes of ginger and garden herbs, also a subtle fruity touch; almost dry, spicy and delicately fruity and sour finish. Lacks acidity and is way too spicy for my taste, wouldn´t have liked it even if the recipe was from 1000 BC. 06.V.15

500ml bottle pours a hazy golden orange color with a finger of white head that leaves a few spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is juniper berry and ginger. Taste is spicy with a malty sweetness and a herbal, grassy hop bitterness. Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, an interesting ale which is oddly good.

From WLVL. Weird, but I liked it. Spice mix was really all over the place. Might be a good winter beer? I’m going to give this one the benefit of the doubt. Serving; bottle

500 ml bottle shared by Werckmeister, thanks!
Amber, hazy body, with a medium, frothy, off-white head.
Aroma of spices, soap, *kanal*, banana, wheat.
Taste is quite light, with spices, bread, banana, some sweet malts.
Medium mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes soft, sweet, spicy, a bit fruity.

Boring. Nose is pretty strange, taste is better, but quite flat. Not my cup of tea.

Werckmeister (981) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - JUN 30, 2015
500ml bottle from trade with Erzengel, many thanks. Shared by 2 with Saeglopur. Did not find the BB date on this one. ABV 6,5%. yellow hazy color, small off-white head. smells reminds me of the soap at 80s 1* hotels, not a pleasant reminder :P some spices, smell not very good. medium body, soft carbonation, slick mouthfeel. taste of spices, some sweetness, soap smell again but less strong than on the smell, fruity notes, peach. finishs with soap notes and light fruits. very weird one, unfortunatly it was hard to avoid the smell, taste is a bit better, but also not so pleasant.

wlajwl (4692) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - APR 19, 2015
Aroma is light caramel, spices and funk. The flavor is fruit, funk, malts and a sour/earthy finish. Not what I was expecting, interesting.

AirForceHops (4692) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - APR 18, 2015
500 ml bottle purchased at 7/11. Clear gold with a ton of yeast and spice particles floating in the brew. Aroma is quite interesting, juniper Berry, herbs and light yeast.

The body is lighter with a huge herbal finish. Lightly sweet with the yeast playing second fiddle to the spice. Slightly fried plantain flavor. Interesting is the only thing I can really say here.

500mL bottle shared by AirForceHops. Thanks, Chris! Pours pale gold with plenty of floaties. Aroma is heavy ginger, mild banana. Taste... Did you ever want a banana flavored ginger ale? Neither did I. Fail.
