3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy yellow with a white head, looking very much like a wheat beer. Fruity citrus aroma. Flavour of citrus, some pine hoppiness. Good bitter finish, but needs a bit more. Pleasant though.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
2.5oz on tap at Ei8ht Ball. Mildly hazy yellow color. White head. Grassy, herbal aroma. Some brett to this, which I wasn’t really expecting, and not really enjoying here. Aside from the brett, there’s some spiciness, maybe a touch of wit-style yeast... Medium body. Soft, moderate strength bright tingly carbonation. Dry finish. Moderate sour taste, light to moderate bitter, light to moderate sweet. Way off. If the brett was intentional, then this is just clunky. Doesn’t taste any different from way-old brett-infected "white IPAs" I find in liquor stores in Georgia. Not enjoyable, pretty unpleasant, Brett is super-distracting.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught @ Ølhus København. Aroma has citrus, some caramel and mellow mineral tones. Flavour has grapefruit, peaches and hints of herbal bitterness. Finishes odd; floury and with mellow plastic tones. Creamy and smooth palate. Nice, but does not reach the top.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Au Grain d’Orge, Crissier
Pale blond color, cloudy, with small head. This beer has plenty of citrusy character, lemon peel above the rest, and light notes of tropical fruits; it has a moderate wheat/spicy character, and correct bitterness. The mouthfeel is rather dry.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at olhus Copenhagen. Hazy hoegaarden like color. White head with big bubbles. Very light wheatiness, citrus and coriander. Medium-to-light body and medium carbonation. Quite to my taste! Bit of lemon and apple and lingering bitterness. Very easy drinking beer. I could name it white pale ale. Ibu/biterness seems not High and lacks some more passion fruit/grapefruit flavors. A bit thicker body would be Nice. But i presume that is not easy for the style... If you want a long beer session and you re in summer you will like it!

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Keg at Ølhus Helsinki, 20150220) The beer poured pale golden and hazy. Its head was small and white. Aroma had fruitiness, coriander, pine and citricness. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, citricness, coriander, malts, tartness and bitterness. Aftertaste was fruity, spicy and bitter. A twisted witbier. Not my thing.

Tap@ölhus helsinki. Pale yellow. light hazy. Wheaty strong citrus, lemongrass, gingery nose. Ok bodied, not too weak, some sweetness to round the well bittered, very wheaty, slight hay, malty body. Nice clean flavourful. The wheat is strong in this one, and if you’re into that, pretty good.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tap (Olhus Copenhagen, Helsinki)
Stinky stanky aroma, plenty of armpit in this. Pale, hazy, small head. Taste probably worse than the aroma, it’s a slimy sticky palate, some sharpish sour fruit notes, basically quite unpleasant to have in the mouth. Even the pleasantly bitter finish can’t convince me to finsh the glass. In fact, it’s better not in the mouth than in the mouth, so the latter is being avoided.
