Borefts VI. Day 2. Craig has blue nipples post fest tasting in his room. Light haze on this pale gold beer, good fluffy white head. Airy palate. Mild floralness and light sweetish esters. Dried fruits. Light finish. Okay, bit hollow for its abv.

Bottle split in Craigs room, Borefts Day 2 after party tasting, 27/09/14 thanks to the person who brought this number. Lightly hazed orange with moderate off white spotting and edgework. Nose is citric peel, grainy, spice, caramel. Taste comprises tangy citrics, lemon zest, straw, light spice, orange squash. Medium bodied, spritzy and overcarbed, semi drying close. So so, not much going on certainly when you take the 8% ABV into account!

Bire qui mrite tout fait son classement en spice/herb (bravo ratebeer), puisquelle utilise pas moins de 6 herbes: pimprenelle, hysope, thym, myrte, ail et sarriette de montagne. On se croirait dans le chaudron de la Helleketelbier de chez de Bie La plus forte proportion est accorde la Pimprenelle, do le nom de la bire. Niveau abv de 8%, pour un exemplaire ayant dpass sa date de 4 mois. Couleur dor faible brillant. Clart nette. Bulles fines en colonnes disparates. Mousse qui est un nappage diaphane. Armes de blanc duf, camomille, concombre, pointe doranges amres, thym. 1re bouche soyeuse la prise sur du malt clair, confit doignons, vin du Rhin. Arrire-bouche singulire sur malt claire et ail. 2me aux saveurs un peu poivres par la sarriette. Arrire-bouche de malt clair et agrumes, avec un peu de thym. 3me sur des saveurs de grande chartreuse dues lhysope. Arrire-bouche davantage sur le thym et la myrte. La longueur donne une meilleure intgration, mais le haut pourcentage de pimprenelle fausse une harmonie qui aurait pu venir. Les jambes sont marques. La levure est un peu lgre, un peu mince, mais valable. Lalcool est bien proportionn, il travaille bien mais ne peut justifier lquilibre. La finale est en-de. CONCLUSION: une bire fausse par linsistance sur un ingrdient. Il est vrai quelle en tire son nom, mais une plus juste proportion aurait pu donner une vraie originalit cette bire.

Alengrin (4923) - BELGIUM - AUG 22, 2014
Spice ale since 2010 with the garlic that typifies Jessenhofke but also fresh herbs grown by Sanguisorba in Ranst, a well-known brewery supplier of herbs and spices. The herbs in question are salad burnet, hyssop, thyme, savory and myrte. Snow white, regular head, misty peach blonde colour. Complex herbalness in the nose as can be expected, difficult to distinguish one from the other even though I am familiar with their aromas, very flowery, some candi sugar, some fruits and, as in the other Jessenhofkes, no noticeable garlic. Sweetish spiciness in the mouth and, much to my surprise, there it is: a faint hint of garlic in the background. Light mouthfeel, sweetish caramel malt base, dry finish with the spices further developing alongside a herbal hoppiness. Interesting if you are into spice beers.

Gurthnar (5379) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAY 16, 2014
Bottle. Aroma spicy with light citrus fruits, light bubblegum. Rounded and inviting. Taste is rather sweet, both spicy and malty. A bit weird, not working with me. Finish turns somewhat tart. I am conflicted about this one.
