Eructoblaster (3022) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 9, 2014
Bottle - 500ml. Cloudy golden body with a thin, lasting white frothy head. Decent malty/hoppy aroma with spicy and yeasty hints. Its bland malty/hoppy taste carries grassy, citrusy, and ginger notes. Ends with a short bittersweet finish. Ordinary.

Wieder mal ein Schuss in den Ofen, der zu Beginn zwar hefig und prickelnd beginnt, jedoch durch seine Pfeffrigkeit und einen Hauch von Kotze alles zunichte macht. Ich wollte es mögen - und wurde bitter enttäuscht.

McTapps (4083) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - SEP 7, 2014
Bottle from the brewery. Pours out in a hazy orange-brownish colour with big steady head and medium body. Aroma of wheat, yeast and juniper. Taste of wheat, bread, acid, herbs, ginger, lemons and peat. Acid-wheaty finish. Drinkable.

kappldav123 (5000) - GERMANY - AUG 31, 2014
Huge thanks to Erzengel for that one! Bottle looks really, really good. Beer in the glass very zippy, huge head. Wonderful hoppy-spicy aroma. Starts very spicy with notes of a lot of herbs, hints of sorrel. Light yeasty-dry background. Finish well balanced, spicy, some fruity notes, bitter background. Very interesting beer!

ThirstyBird (1567) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - JUN 22, 2014
Thanks to erzengel! Pours a hazy, dull, yellow/orange with a nice light tan head. The smell is tart fruit, sweet tarts, green apple, must. The taste is dull wheat, tart fruit, a touch of spice ending dry. Light+ in body and a bit silky with nice carbonation. Interesting beer.

bartlebier (1724) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - JUN 4, 2014
50cl bottle traded beyond koelschtrinker’s leftover crate, danke. Sweetish aromas of green apple juice/mash and a wild grab into nan’s herb garden. Had to adjust to taste, as I was under the brief impression this was a spinoff of a Berliner Weisse, not a Bavarian Weisse, Prussia style: more apple juice and herbs-a-gogo: thyme, basil, smoked and even salty notes - must be that juniper. Did not pick up on any ginger or beet sugar. Undercarbonated, reinforcing the impression of wild apple juice. A bit like stumbling into a kitchen drinking apple juice where rosemary, thyme and wayside herbs have been mistakenly used to grill a trout instead of dill and the served for dessert. Strrrange and consciously historicist.

BOTTLE 50CL from Erzengel. Thanks, Gabriel! Look: hazy amber with flakes, off-white creamy head. Aroma: fruity - banana, pineapple, green apple tartness, wheat tartness as well as some "wild" acidity. Not much ginger or juniper. Taste: wheat tartness, some kind of lollipop sweetness with a certain astringen but pleasant spiciness (juniper?) in the finish.
