Alengrin (2425) - BELGIUM - SEP 4, 2014
Elaborate, experimental take on the ESB style with several malt and hop varieties from all over the world (including wheat malt, unusual in English beers) and even lemon zest and elderberry flowers... Cream white, sticky, stable head, orange blonde colour, clear. Aromatic, with sweet spices (probably the elderberry flower), elegant floral hops, lychee, wheat, honey, caramel, lemon sorbet, chamomille, grass, red berries. Soft fruity taste, apple, orange, smooth maltiness, honeyish, caramelly, subtle and complex floral hop bitterness in the finish, less powerful than I had expected based on the aroma. Fascinating.

500ml bottle. Pours golden orange with foamy, quickly dissipating head. Complex flavour, dominated by malty sweetness. Love it

ogniskowicz (179) - POLAND - AUG 21, 2014
Słodowy zapach z akcentem owoców i mocny kwiatowy element. W smaku solidna słodowa baza, lekka kwaskowatość, niezła cytrusowa goryczka. Lekkie, pijalne. Niby przeciętniak, ale czasami jakże miło takowego się napić :)

doradobotella (122) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 10, 2014
Apariencia: De un tono dorado pálido translúcido, con una corona de espuma blanca no muy duradera. Aroma: Cítrico con evidentes notas florales, resulta muy fresca nada mas servirla. Sabor: Es muy cítrica y frutal, con un interesante toque amargo y seco al final.

Bottle received as a gift. Pours dark amber colour. Fruity, malty and very tasty indeed. One of my favourites of recent times

SamTheBarrel (496) - Vallentuna, SWEDEN - MAY 28, 2014
500ml brown bottle, poured into a pint glass. Appearance is slightly hazy orange colored with a medium sized frothy beige head, that when reduced left some lacing. Aroma of Elderflowers, lemon zest and orange marmalade. Flavours of Elderflowers, orange peels, lemon zest, wheat bread and caramel. Taste is light sweet and medium bitter. Palate is medium bodied, slightly oily texture and average carbonation. An interesting beer with a quite notable pleasant presence of Elderflower. Refreshing, citrusy and light, easy to session. According to the brewers description Seven Giraffes is an "aromatic IPA", and I would unquestionably agree that it is.

Hazy yellow. White head and lacing. Aroma of flowers, elderflowers, lemon and newly mowed grass. Similar taste and aftertaste. Refreshing and well balanced.

ComradeK (1052) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - MAY 19, 2014
500ml bottle. Pours a clear golden amber, with a small off-white head, which lasts reasonably well and leaves good lacing. Floral hops mix well with the elderflower and a touch of citrus, to sit over a caramel malt aroma base. Elderflower and citrus hops come in first, with slightly sweet lemon zest joining them. There is a good malt backbone, with plenty of caramel in the mid-palate. Lemon zest and citrus hops give it a nice refreshing finish. This is a good bitter, elevated nicely by the elderflower and lemon zest.
