Inbreak (2131) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - AUG 30, 2014
30.08.2014, 0,33l bottle @ home:
Big slightly fizzy-creamy longlasting head. Aroma is strange woody, cedar, rubber, bark, pine needles, soil, harsh hops, leafs, alcohol. Taste is harsh woody, weeds, cedar, bark, leafs, harsh hops, lawn, pine needles, moss. Longlasting bitterness, dry harsh mouthfeel. Not my cup of tea. Way too woody....

Koelschtrinker (10676) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - AUG 20, 2014
Süßer, etwas grasiger Antrunk. Milde Bitternoten, steigend gewürzig, hell hopfig malzig. Süffig, nie alkoholisch. Vollmundig rundes, deutlich kräuterartiges IPA. 9/12/12/12/9/12

Lisowczyk (55) - POLAND - AUG 17, 2014
Butelka 0,33 Barwa jasne intensywnie opalizujące złoto z odrobiną osadu. Piana na 2 palce, wolno opada. Zapach eksplozja cytrusów, świeżo startego cynamonu i gałki muszkatołowej. Można wąchać i wąchać. Smak to bardzo złożony bukiet, a nie pojedyncze doznania. Igły choinki, żywica, drewno/kora, cynamon, gałka muszkatołowa, cytrusy z dominującym kwaskowatym grejpfrutem i dużo więcej. Niesamowicie intensywne i naturalne. Goryczka wysoka.

Can you imagine, it has a taste and smell like pomelo. Real nice taste, never had something like it before. I wouldn’t say it’s close to cigar, but definitely unique taste, class of its own.

Tap at Animal bar, stored as a offline note. Pours hazy yellow with a long lasting white head. Sweet, flowers, a bit dusty, citrus. More like a IPA.

4/VII/14 - 33cl bottle from Geers (Oostakker) @ home - BB: 16/IX/15 (2014-700) Thanks to Sebletitje for sharing the bottle!

Cloudy dark orange to beige beer, big creamy yellow head, adhesive, leaving a nice lacing in the glass, pretty stable. Aroma: lots of cedar, very soapy, potpourri, funky, deodorant. MF: lots of carbon, medium body. Taste: very weird, soapy, shampoo, dry, some citrus, woody, bitter tannins, resinous, very strange, spicy. Aftertaste: very soapy, dry bitterness, bit medicinal, weird weird stuff!

vanelst (152) - AUSTRIA - JUL 14, 2014
Interesting beer with an aroma of ceder, pine, citrus, passionfruit. Taste is cedar, bittersweet with long finnish, a tad smoky even. Good!

sebletitje (6700) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUL 6, 2014
Bouteille 33cl de Geers, BB 16/09/2015. Orangée, col épais crémeux blanc cassé. Arôme offre de suite ce bouquet typique de cèdre, et les versions de CCB viennent de suite à l’esprit. Je trouve ce dernier fort dominant et accompagné d’un rétro subtil d’agrumes et une levure très belge. Palais offre cette marque de CCB de par son usage de cèdre. Ce dernier ajoute son caractère unique à la bière, boisé, épicé, assez sec rappelant une boite de cigares. Houblonné arrive plus en retrait et malheureusement le cèdre est trop présent pour vraiment que un caractère unique des houblons puisse prendre place.

Stuu666 (2299) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 14, 2014

martjoobolut (731) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 31, 2014
0,33L bottle. Pours hazy golden with huge white head. The head stays. Aroma is floral, pine, citrus, mango, and other tropical fruits. Taste is sweet and bitter, pine, grapefruit, mango, malt, slight alcohol and slight metallic notes. Finish is intense pine bitter. Overall: very nice hoppy brew.
