UPDATED: DEC 26, 2007 Bottled. Clear golden,rich head. Dusty orangey nose. Sweet and juicy with light-medium body and clean rounded mouthfeel. There’s no esters, so it remains more like a wheat ale, but then there is very little fruitines so my guess would be that it’s bottom fermenting... Low bitterness,

yngwie (16423) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 18, 2007
Bottle. It pours a clear, golden with a white head. The flavor is quite grainy, but there’s also a strange fruityness, reminding of a blend of bubble-gum, sweetness and cooked vegetables. Add some wet cardboard to that, and your there. I am not sure if it even deserves a 3 for aroma, but it isn’t that bad. The flavor is quite grainy as well, but with a strange lemony fruityness to finish it. It becomes a bit better when it warms up. That’s a pity, such a beer should be enjoyed at lower temperatures than this one need. It has a quite grainy finish too, and there’s a little lemon here as well. According to the label, there’s more wheat-malt than barley-malt in the beer, but it isn’t reflected in the flavor I think. I guess Aass tried to make a wheat beer for those normally drinking the pale lagers and pilsners we normally see in Norway, why would they else go for a kristallweizen instead of a hefe-weizen? And they sell it as a gourmet-brew. A pity that is. Sorry Aass, not a lucky beer, probably not even derserving the total score of 2. (070618)
