Svesse (8580) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JUN 26, 2017
(Bottle) Golden colour with brief, foamy, white head. Malty nose with bread, grass, coriander, ginger, a touch of juniper, banana and doughy wheat. Malty, fruity taste with bread, ginger, banana, yeast, some syrup, juniper and a finish with low bitterness. Medium body, with just a touch of sweetness. Interesting and well balanced, but doesn’t really stand out. Quite enjoyable.

lupuLust (268) - Franke(n) im Breisgau, GERMANY - JUN 22, 2017
Good balance between barely malt, wheaty palate and taste and the sugar beet sweetness. Nso sign of hops in aroma, taste or on the label. Subtle hints of juniper and ginger (beer) sweetness. Spicy wheat beer without any disturbing bananas or too silky palate.

kermis (12869) - The Hague / Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 28, 2017
Draft at Craft Beer Corner, Cologne. Hazy golden with an off white head. Aroma of green weedy hops, prunes, floral notes, yeast, citrus and light fruits. Flavour is light moderate sweet and moderate bitter. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

SinH4 (4719) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - MAY 26, 2017
Bottle. Deep golden color with small white ring. Aroma is banana, ginger, juniper, a bit oxidized. Taste is banana cream, just a touch of ginger, a touch oxidized, some fruits, juniper. Low carbonation. Very interesting!

Trübes dunkles gelb bis orange, schaum Ok, im Geruch sehr würzig holzig Muskat ingwer wacholder irgendwie etwas stechend, im Geschmack wacholderbeere beerig sehr würzig etwas ingwer leichte Brause stich erinnert an irgendein Bonbon etwas staubig wenig Säure, muss man sich ein bisschen rein trinken in die Nummer...

DrNosha (2287) - Württemberg, Germany, GERMANY - MAY 6, 2017
0,5l Flasche. Trüb oranges Bier mit hellem Schaum. Der Geruch ist erstmal seltsam. Gewürze, Wacholder, Zimt, sanft säuerlich. Ich werde mit dem Duft nicht richtig warm. Beim Geschmack geht es mir auch so. Ingwer und Wacholder recht kräftig. Dazu Holz, Harz und Säure. Wenig Kohlensäure. Abgang recht flach. Die Gewürze bleiben aber auf der Zunge.

R4N5H (1166) - NETHERLANDS - APR 14, 2017
50cl bottle from Oedipus Brewery & Taproom, enjoyed on 14-Apr-2017. Slightly hazy golden amber colour with a medium sized white head which dissipates quickly but leaving decent lacing down the glass. Aroma is a little funky - vegetables, wheat, malt and spices. Medium body and carbonation. Taste is spicy and herbal. Ginger, juniper and hops prominent. An interesting spiced witbier.

Maracuja05 (1206) - Mainz, GERMANY - MAR 13, 2017
05-03-17 // 500ml bottle. Hazy dark golden beer with foamy white head. Interesting taste as it is a spicy wheatbeer with some ginger and herbal notes along with some lemony tocuhes and also hints of sour nuances.

Iznogud (3710) - CROATIA - FEB 13, 2017
Bottle, 500 ml, courtesy of Max, shared with him and others. Pours hazy golden, small white head. Interesting, spicy, fruity, citrus, horse blanket, herbal, sweetish. Medium bodied.

zenkis (834) - Ogre, LATVIA - NOV 19, 2016
bottle, Biervana, Munich
6.5.% on the label
Pity that it was recomended to me as sour beer, but the only sour aspect is aroma - it kinda reminds Belgian beers - toilety, a bit like fermented/salted cucumbers, a bit brettanomyces, funky barnyard. Flavor is totally ruined like unbalanced mix of everything, sweetish although overall with hints of juniper and gingery savoury. I was not able to drink whole bottle, too messy flavor. Poured light brown, unclear with not much foam.
