jdjuice (500) - Kumamoto, JAPAN - OCT 13, 2015
Came into this not knowing what to expect. Pours pale gold with white head. Aromas are bananas, wheaty, slightly yeasty. Flavors are really quite unique, starts of with a rough, roasty grain flavor, nutty and very flavorful malts even for a beer of this light a color. The hop bitterness comes out on the finish, but is not overly strong. Also has a slight tang to it that is very pleasant. Like a saison with a very unique, interesting malt character to it. A very pleasant surprise.

RexTalionis (3763) - FINLAND - OCT 3, 2015
Bottle. Darker golden in color, off-white head. Sweet sugar, floral and malty notes in aroma. Some christmas spices and vinous notes too. Interesting. Sweetish malty and hints of greenish herbs in taste. More on the sweeter side but smooth nonetheless. Light spicy and biscuity finish. Quite heavy one to drink.

Dermi (1188) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 3, 2015
55 cl, bottled. Pours clear orange with a decent white head. Very hard for me to get the zesty characters of Sorachi Ace (IMHO: Probably a good thing, too). Aroma: Grains, cereals. Plastic wrapper of smoked whitefish (Coregonus spp.). Taste: Sweet, cereals. Corn flakes! Some light bitterness, caramel. Mild but complex floral, wood and vanilla tones. Somewhat savory taste. Palate: Medium body, some carbonation. Slightly dry aftertaste. Interesting, more malty than hoppy, balanced feel.

Truly one of the stranger beers I’ve ever had. One sip, and I could not get the comparison to those pink-iced starbucks cake pops out of my head. Aka, mishmash of sweet, oily flavours, that taste..artificial (which I assume this was not). Still, bubblegum, butterscotch (I assume the sorachi ace), and odd melange of fruits. And something grainy, somewhere. Not sure if I like it, but definitely not lacking in flavour.

Jado (798) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - SEP 11, 2015
From 650 ml bottle. Pours a slightly hazy orange-amber with a tight and lasting white head. Aromas of grass, white bread and dusty orange. Taste is rather different from what the nose suggests. Starts out with fresh pear and apple before a pepper and orange zest lift in the mid-palate along with some Belgian yeast characters. Sweet biscuits, spice and a little cut grass at the end. Medium bodied with a slightly sweet fruity aftertaste. A bit odd, but really interesting.

drjoeng (1291) - SINGAPORE - SEP 7, 2015
6.5%ABV. Pilsener. Poured out of the bottle a gold blonde color, about 8ºSRM. Aroma is nice grapefruit and lemon zest. Clean herbaceous pine like aromas. Mouthfeel is soapy. There are bread-like, water cracker and biscuit flavors. Hop-balanced with plenty of citrus hop character, with grapefruit, lemon zest with that very nice bitter finish of a fresh citrus peel. Nice but with a slightly less than pleasant after taste, a little umami.

3.2
anders37 (26641) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 2, 2015
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a small white head. Has a fruity malty spicy weak yeasty aroma. Fruity malty spicy yeasty weak hoppy flavor. Has a fruity malty spicy yeasty finish.

anstei (2254) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - JUL 4, 2015
Bottle, on recommendation of Josh and Toni. Pours amber with very little head, almost no lacing. This beer features a typical amber ale taste with clearly unusual hops and malt. Satisfying complexity, but also a bit odd.
