Straw coloured beer with big white head. Aroma is malty with some herbs. Flavor is also malty with some hay. Very dry finish.

JorisPPattyn (8031) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - AUG 21, 2004
Big off-white head with big bubbles; dark straw coloured beer. End of bottle is quite flunky. Grapes and wheat (strange, no wheatbeer) in the nose: I get some white candi sugar too. Bitterish first impression, then sweet malt (pale, but also cookie) taste. Finish is hop-bitter again, but not hop-aromatic. Generally very grainy beer, bit like wholeweat cookies. Light to medium bodied. The malt might be there, but there’s little "beef" to it. Bitterish finish lasts very long in the mouth. Nice drinkable beer, more bones than beef, with a very wheat-grain character.

Jeppe (2631) - Ølbutikken, DENMARK - AUG 15, 2004
Medium off-white head, unclear orange body. Sweet and sour aroma with plenty of fruit, oranges and citrus. Quite sour in the flavor. Strong notes of oranges and also spices, yeast and straw. Dry finish.

LoveCaissa (873) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 8, 2004
Hazy deep yellow colour with a big white head. Decent aroma with lemon, yeast, and perhaps grass. Flavour is less pleasant with strange notes of hay or grass. As the beer warms the aroma gets less pleasant too - I am not a big fan of this beer...

MartinKubert (862) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 29, 2004
Quite dark amber colour. Very strong lemon aroma. Sweet artificial flavour with a finish with notes of pear. Also a fruity aftertaste. Somewhat citric. Some yeasty and alcoholic notes.

UPDATED: JAN 10, 2005 Bottle @ Akkurat, Stockholm
I had to ask the very knowledgable bartender if this one’s supposed to taste like this and he said yes. Very yeasty, sour, oddly like human waste products... Makes your mouth taste like the day to come...

Ungstrup (29834) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 24, 2004
A hazy orange beer with a dense white head. The aroma is very sweet with light notes of wheat. The flavor is lovely spicy with a dry wheaty background.

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - JUN 7, 2004
(on bottle) A very plesant experienc for a non-believer in the belgian beer-magic. Has all the good caracterictics for a blond; pale gold color, lots of fermenting and the bana/yeast flavors. But it also has a lots f fresh, dry and sour, white wine feels to it. Never saw about 0,5 cm of yeast in a 33ml. before.

fiulijn (15227) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 22, 2004
Blond color, with floating particles. Very nice aroma, spicy and fruity. Dry and spicy, malty and bitter. Long final. Not strong alcohol, but excellent!
