Koelschtrinker (22517) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - OCT 23, 2017
Wässriger Antrunk nach Blüten. Milde Herbe, süßlich, schwach ausgeprägt. Trinkbar, aber langweilig und den Aufwand nicht wert. 10/8/7/7//7

Zlotta (4253) - Hagen, GERMANY - SEP 30, 2017
Sampled from tap at Borefts 2017. Slightly hazy, straw yellow with a white head. Sweetish, herbal-spicy and slightly floral-grassy aroma of hay, lemon peel and ginger. Sweetish, slightly bitter, rather herbal-spicy and slightly floral-grassy taste of hay, ginger, dill and some lemon peel, followed by a short, moderately bitter, rather herbal-spicy and grassy finish. Thin to medium body, slightly effervescent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Okay!

@ Borefts 2017 Nose is spiced, tad smoeked, fresh herbs, citric. Taste are the elements I found in the aroma but less interesting. The herbal touch is a bit off track. Palate is slightly wry. Aftertaste is not long lasting.

Draft at Borefts Beer Festival '17. Clear golden with a white head. Aroma is floral with light fruits, citrus and yeast. Flavour is light moderate sweet and bitter. Light to medium bodied with soft carbonation.

bierkoning (13898) - La Tropica/Doarp, NETHERLANDS - SEP 25, 2017
Tap @ Borefts 2017. Citrus and hints of boiled rice in the vinous aroma, herbal, spicy bitter flavor with citrus. Vinous finish. Lacking in balance, but interesting.

77ships (11639) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 25, 2017
Thank you for sharing! Sampled draft @ Borefts 2017. Day 2. Hazy golden, creamy lacing white head. Nose is interesting, strongly mineral, floral, almost salty. Alas another Shiga Kogen beer where smell beats taste for me. Taste is weaker, paper, doughy, yeast, missing a lot of the interesting stuff from the smell. Body is yeast & paper.
