500 ml can. Light, sweet and mild great-tasting wheat beer. Mismatch to a fatty steak dinner (my mistake). Big, white, long-lasting foam.

A refreshing beer that needs to be cooled. Won't win any prizes but fine for a summer BBQ! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cunningham (6891) - Halden, NORWAY - FEB 2, 2012
Bottle at Coop Prix. Light golden colour with a white head. Light fruity and a bit grainy nose. Thin grainy and grassy flavour, a huge dissapointment.

Enjoyit (3754) - Vadum, DENMARK - OCT 7, 2011
Pale golden of color with a white head. A very weak aroma with weak malt and sweets. A flavor which is grainy and thin.

Mezcalmannen (395) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 13, 2011
Medium sweetness, lightly bitter. Aroma of grass, citrus. Very little on the palate. I was quite disappointed at this beer. (50 cl can)

Can. 1 month past ’best before’. Pours a pale yellow with a small white head. Weak aroma: a bit grainy, that’s about it. Flavour is tart, dusty and sweet with an off-flavour of blue cheese (!). Dry, sweetish finish. Overall not particularly good, and not the least bit close to a weizen. 12.08.11.

Can. It starts out with clear golden-colored body that tells me one thing: this will be a pretty weak weizen representation. The off-white head is large and rather well retained, although not as good as what I would have expected. The lacing is decent, clinging to the side of the glass for a few minutes or so. All-in-all, the body looks to fair. The nose is fairly aromatic: largely sweet, but far less fruity than the typical fruity heaven found in most weizen. The mouth feel is rather watery and oily. The taste is decent: a bit malty (just as all the other Aass Gourmet types, regardless of the style), and far too bitter for a weizen. All-in-all, it’s a decent beer, but far off the mark in terms of style.

What? A crystal clear golden body? Ah, it’s supposed to be a kristallweizen, ok then. The huge, white head leaves plenty of lacing but is quite short lived. The aroma is very faint fruity and a bit lager-like. The taste is light sweet, light bitter and quite sour. Unpleasant sour flavours. Watery texture, soft carbonation. A huge disappointment after tasting the Aass Gourmet Stout.
[50 cl can, from Meny Telemarksporten, Porsgrunn]
