darkseduction (737) - Zweibrcken, GERMANY - JUL 30, 2011
Bottle 30cl. Pours a cloudy brown beer with off-white head. Fruity and floral taste, a sour-sweet experience, hides alcohol very well. Refreshing.

erickok (5805) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JUL 27, 2011
Brown body with tan head. Surprising aroma with ginger, cough drop, fig, lavender and tea. The herbs used instead (or accompanying) hops make and break this beer as it gives originality but Im not a fan. Definitely try this. Palate is good, nice mild carbonation. (33cl bottle)

MMR (752) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 21, 2011
Smells very fruity and has a somewhat spicy taste but most notably caramel. Its aftertaste shows more of an alcoholic flavor and its an overall very nice and surprising dark amberish beer. Havent really tasted anything like this.

jaghana (5875) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - JUL 16, 2011
Bottle 30cl, a cloudy amber beer with huge head and good lacing. Nose is ginger like and spicy. Aroma is syrupy sweet, caramel malt but very fruity on pepper, ginger and licorice. Herbal notes are there and very pleasant, finish is on fresh hops. I really like this beer, a bit sweet anyway.

prawlie (1564) - East Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2011
30 mL bottle from BOE poured into a Hoegaarden glass. Dark brown with a little fizz and generous head (although a bit cornetto like, but that could be the glass). Smells unusual, sweet and herby. Particularly sweet, tastes like it smells. Tates a little bit garlicy, but thats probably my knowledge of herbs letting me down. Weird but kind of pleasant. Covers the alcohol content very well.

Koelschtrinker (19394) - Kln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 20, 2011
Stark kruterartiger und ebenfalls hefiger Antrunk, der schon sehr stark erscheint, kurz darauf aber bermig nachlsst und einen fast laffen Grundton hinterlsst. Dennoch bleibt die Kruternote, nur durch einen wssrigen Ton ergnzt, bestehen. Dennoch etwas zu intensiv in die Kruterrichtung gehend. Ein ziemlich eigene sbIer, das bei geringerer Intensitt besserwre. 12/9/9/10/10/9

chriso (7533) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2011
On tap at Jopenkerk, Haarlem on 4 April 2011. Darkish red / brown colour. Described by the server as made without hops but subsequent research suggests that may not be entirely correct. However, Koyt is a Dutch equivalent of gruit and various herbs and spices are quite dominant here. Language differences made an explanation of the herbs used difficult but I believe Bog Myrtle (aka Sweet Gale) is in the mix. I picked up notes of coriander too. Some medicinal cough syrup accents in the flavour too. Quite sweet but not too sticky. Overall, interesting and enjoyable.
