Idiosynkrasie (8055) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - DEC 6, 2016
330ml bottle. Barely clear, yellow-ish, pale golden colour with average to huge, fluffy to macropore, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Intense, herbal, hoppy aroma, pale malty background, notes of juniper, a grassy touch. Taste is bone-dry, herbal-hoppy, weak pale malty background, hints of juniper; mineral and minimally soapy finish, watery passages. Intense but quite monotonous.

Bottle from trade with minutemat, cheers! Pours pale yellow with a white head. Fairly spicy yeasty aroma with citrus, green tea and some rubber notes. Taste follows with juniper berries, lemon, grapefruit, black pepper, wheat. Dry and fairly bitter (feels more like spicy bitterness from the juniper berries than hop bitter), with a lasting finish. More saison-like than ipa to me, the hops are certainly there, but more in a supporting role. Nothing wrong with that! SlackerMads (3543) - DENMARK - SEP 9, 2016
Bottle received in the European Secret Santa, thanks to minutemat. Gushes out of the bottle and pours hazy yellow with a medium sized white head with good retention, lace and regeneration. Hoppy nose with citrus, flowers, dry grass and dough. Flavour follows with dry flowers, dry grass, hay, green plants, minerals, citrus. Medium body, soft and filling mouthfeel, low sweetness, medium bitter. Long hoppy finish. Good. zacgillbanks (5535) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2016
Bottle from Coppers, Newcastle. Pale golden with a large white rocky head of foam. It has a bitter, slight tart lemon flavour with herbal fruity notes and a gentle, smooth floral finish. Nice. BeardedAvenger (1197) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2016
Bottle at home, 24/06/16. Ordered from Beerhawk. A sour aroma, thanks to the juniper. Light gold and hazy. Inititally had a lot of sediment floating around. Clear white head - initially very frothy but soon fades away. Hoppy with a sour edge. I had to go upstairs to attend to a crying baby and ended up with slightly sour aftertaste around my teeth and tongue. Medium bodied and smooth, with a small amount of carbonation. The hops and juniper complement each other.

Bottle from The Bottle Shop Bermondsey and drunk on a train. Gold colour lasting white head. Tasty golden beer with just a touch of spice from the juniper berries. A bit like a beer g&t. As with a lot of Cloudwater beers it’s highly drinkable. Good spicy bitter finish. Very attractive. leaparsons (10802) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2016
