Hazy yellow, white coloured beer with a small white head. Aroma is weird and spicy. Flavour is evenly weird. (Bottle 75cl)

Bontus (774) - Flanders, BELGIUM - MAR 1, 2016
Bottle, 33cl. Pours golden yellow, dense head. What a list of herbs! Alas no golden ticket to aroma heaven. Quite balanced, spices not distinguishable, slight bitter. Maybe a bit underwhelming

GSAP (702) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 31, 2015
Aparte smaak combi, thijmhoestsiroop, suikerwerk en appelsap. Aroma heeft die elementen ook, maar lichter, meer dikke pils. Weinig kraag op licht troebel geel. Zachte smaak, fijn overzichtelijk complex.

Icedwarf (1342) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - SEP 5, 2015
Licht troebel lichtgeel bier met weinig schuim. Smaak is bitter hopppig en kruidig, iets van basilicum en oregano met zuur fruit. Aparte maar toch goede smaak. PMPRNL versie gedronken.

TheFoamhead (261) - Vught, NETHERLANDS - MAR 13, 2015
Maybe I should start with the list of ingredients: besides the ordinary beer ingredients, Jessenhofke uses brown sugars, burnet (pimpernelle), savory, hyssop, thyme, mirthe and garlic! Whet do you think now? Well, I think I thought the same - but its not that disgusting! Honestly, its not disgusting at all. Its different, sure, and the taste is obviously very complex. But its well balanced, has a flowery sweetish mouthfeel and a nice heavy alcoholic finish. Its so different and against the stream of the IPA hype that its something I really can appreciate. A challenge for beer sommelliers and a nice beer from time to time. This is not a normal beer - its like a well composed dish! You dont know whats in, you cannot differenciate all the ingredients but the taste composition is lovely.
