HenrikSoegaard (14704) - Randers, DENMARK - NOV 24, 2010
Bottle at Torben Mathews tasting. Creamy white good mostly lasting head. Yellow colour. Moderate malty and light hoppy aroma. Strong anis/absinth notes. Moderate bitter flavor. Anis powering through. Average moderate bitter nice finish. Watery palate. Interresting.

saxo (19569) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - NOV 23, 2010
Bottle at Torben Mathews tasting. Nice head with good duration. Color is amber. Aroma and taste are dominated by anis and fennel like Pernod. Some caramel and sugar as well.

thewolf (12940) - Kolding, DENMARK - NOV 18, 2010
Bottle @ YNWA, Austria Tasting.
Pours dark golden with a small, frothy, off-white film head. Aroma has wormwood, light mint, some slight cardboard, light caramel and herbal liqourice. Medium carbonation, okay mouthfeel. Flavour is soft (no cardboard), caramel, lightly toasted, wormwood again, liqourice, walnuts, light vinious. Long, lingering dryness. Far better than I expected.

ogivlado (8316) - Zagreb, CROATIA - MAR 2, 2009
Bottled(330ml). -The only one not so good Forstner beer however still better than most of other Austrian lagers. Dark orange coloured, small white head that went away fast, dry peppery (almost chili)nose. Unbalanced spicy-beet-herbal taste without any notes or presence of absinth. Pitty.

Marko (6285) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - FEB 26, 2009
Bottle (Bière d’Absinthe, spelled "biére" on the label) that ogivlado got at the brewpub and shared with me (thanks!). Poured a murky lovely dark amber/red body with scant head. Malts and beets in the nose. Bitter taste, husky, beets, that’s all. Slightly acidic in a herbal way, but not much. C’est tout. The brewer did a good job preventing the wormwood from utterly dominating the taste, but might’ve overdone it because not much can be felt, if anything. It’s probably better than any other beers with wormwood, but on its own, especially after Brew-Secco and Triple 22, it’s nothing special.

Geiserich (4660) - Linz, AUSTRIA - JUN 14, 2008
Draught at Falstaff Bierfestival 2008 (Vienna): Light swet aroma, intensive herbal. Light amber color, huge foamy head. Flavor is first grainy/malty, light sweet and sticky. Second impression is a intenisve herbal note, very unusual. Finish with herbs, sweetish components and dry bitterness. Light alcoholic. Very unusual brew, pleasant herbal beer. Brilliantly
