Pouring at Where the Wild Beers Are. Pours a hazed apricot amber with a thin white head. Soft wood, apples, musk. Super sweet, musky and woody. Wood, musk, caramel, light toast. Musk and wood with some funk. Didn’t really stand out in any way.

Bottle. [thank you, harrisoni]
My first beer after a short-ish beer hiatus of nineteen days.
Pours a lovely, clear orange golden with a great, staying, creamy head. Mostly white, but with a slight yellow hue to it someplaces. I poured a bit more than I probably should, so a few large lumps of yeast plumped into the glass. Probably won’t make a difference. Head stays for quite a long time, descending slowly in a ring, leaving lacings on the glass and a cone in the middle. Lovely aroma. Lots of overripe apple, some oak, toffee, caramel malts and yeast. There is oranges, pineapple and other exotic fruit notes as well. Highish prickly carbonation, but still maintains a good oily feel. Flavour is quite vinious, but never really alcohol-heavy. Lots of apples again, mixed with lovely fat toffee and those yeast exotic fruit notes. Warming finish with very little bitterness. Very nice.

madsberg (11773) - Søborg, DENMARK - MAR 7, 2010
Bottled. Orange colourd. Unclear. Small beige head. Sourness, light yeast, some fruits and calva in the aroma. Flavour is sour and yeasty as well. loads of alcohol notable and wood as well. Tense grape and grass. Medium bodied. Sourish and grapy end. Not really something for me this one.

shrubber85 (11460) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - APR 24, 2011
Bottle at First German Ratebeer gathering at Idar Oberstein. Lemon peel and Calvados aroma. Hazy golden yellow color with small head. Sweet and musty lemon and barley malt flavor. Nice beer.

hopscotch (11161) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 13, 2011
Bottle… Cloudy peach-colored ale with a small, creamy, white head. Good retention. Odd bouquet - spicy, salty, herbal and earthy. Medium-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and prickly carbonation. Like the aroma, the flavor is odd, but enjoyable – herbal and earthy. Spicy mustard seed, anise, coriander, earthy hops, light acidity and a touch of salt. Finishes earthy and herbal. Strange brewery, this one. Lots of hits, misses and almosts. Always off-center.

3.5
daknole (11049) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - APR 1, 2012
A light,clear amber pour, small off white head. Aroma is all over the place! Tons of brandy notes, woody, herbal notes, some earthy aromas as well. Sweet and boozy up front on the flavor, some interesting herbal flavors and spice. Finishes warm.
