LLaurin (536) - Motala, SWEDEN - MAY 10, 2017
Pours hazy in straw yellow with small head. Nose is rather small with grassy and herbal notes. Taste is sweet also with touch of herbs and green grass. Agreeable in taste with light sweetness from alcohol although not very high in ABV. Palate is also sweet and fruity but lasts longer than expected.

Chudwick (3369) - Taylor Mill, Kentucky, USA - APR 5, 2016
33cl bottle best by July 2017 with an ABV of 6.2% per the label. Lentil beer, why not? Smells like an amber. Sip adds grass, hay and a little spicey. I love lentils but I do not detect any lentil flavor. File under typical French beer.

Tometclo (333) - Paris, FRANCE - AUG 9, 2015
Mousse blanche, couleur jaune troublée, petites bulles, arôme malt. Une douceur. 33 Cl

jaghana (6284) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - DEC 27, 2014
Bottle 33cl, kindly shared by Dominique. A cloudy golden beer with medium head. Aroma is sweet like, notes of grain, same notes as the beer after brewing and before boiling, very sweet, bergamote notes, floral, candied orange, medium bitterness even ginger touch. This beer is very unusual, not nice but not ugly.

erickok (6036) - Leuven, BELGIUM - NOV 8, 2014
Small instable foam over very murky body. Vegetable, yeasty, murky, sweet, pear. Alcohol heat, not too sweet, but oddly canned vegetable taste... I didn’t expect much, but with its poorly developed palate and bubblegum sweetness I can’t find any highlights at all really. Some superficially stupid ideas are really just that... (33cl bottle from a hamburger food truck in Bourges...)

Fin (10918) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2013
Bottle picked in France in June 2013 whilst on holiday. Consumed at home Sunday 1st September 2013 Gold in colour with a white head, looks pretty good. Sweet malts waft from the nose, the flavour which with green lentils in I was rather dreading was actually ok with no sign (to me) of lentils anywhere. However I did find this beer to be far too sweet with just a maltiness to show, almost creamy with a little vanilla. A6 A4 T6 P3 Ov11 3.0

czar (9430) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 27, 2013
bottle from stepdad - thanks. drain pour. clear light yellow, no head. apple juice, pepper, light ginger and sugary malts, almost cloying. average carbonation, light body. awful.

olio (10552) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 27, 2012
33 cl bottle @ Gastropub Tuulensuu, Tampere. Thanks Sami!
Pours hazy golden color with minimal head. Aroma of vegetables, fruits, grass and mandarin. Flavour of malts, sweet grain, light fruits and spices. A bit weird but drinkable.

lusikka (7833) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 27, 2012
330 ml bottle @ Gastropub Tuulensuu, Tampere. Thanks Sami!
Pours a pale hazy yellow colour with a small head which fades quickly. Aroma of sweet honey, grass and some vegetables. Flavour of sweet honey, vegetables, citrus, some metallic notes and weak bitterness. Light bodied, watery mouthfeel and a citrusy, honey finish with some vegetables. Weird.

laiti (8514) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 27, 2012
33 cl bottle (6,2%) @ Gastropub Tuulensuu, BBE 11/2013. Thanks Sami!
Aroma is sweetish with brown sugar and citron. Also hints of wheat and hay. Flavour is sweet with honey, some grain, brown sugar and hints of citron. Sticky finish with honey. Weird stuff, both aroma and flavour feel a bit like homemade alcoholfree mead.
