Koelschtrinker (9999) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 25, 2011
Wässriger Antrunk mit dezenten Fruchtnoten, ähnlich einer Fruchtschorle mit geringem Fruchtanteil. Im Mittelteil kommt die Fruchtigkeit deutlich hervor, überraschenderweise ist dieses Mischgetränk nur wenig süß und daher angenehm zu trinken. Es ist um so überraschender, dass trotz der Milde der Fruchtigkeit und der geringen Süße trotzdem kaum Bieraromen erkennbar sind. Wenig herb im Abgang, erneut Frucht, weniger als im Mittelteil. Erfrischend und untypisch. 9/8/11/7/11/7

Ungstrup (29018) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 29, 2011
Bottled. A brown beer with a thin tan head. The aroma has notes of black currant. The flavor is sweet with notes of black currant, leading to a dry berry finish. The body is light. Thanks yespr for sharing.

MoritzF (8389) - Bochum, GERMANY - JUN 14, 2011
(bottle, 33cl) Clear, opaque colour with a medium-sized tanned foamy head. Slightly mouldy fruity aroma with notes of black currant. Moderately sweet flavour, light bodied with a crisp carbonation. Low to none beery accents but a moderate fruitiness; slim and fruity finish with a shy malt-character and traces of bitterness shining through. Dispensable, but better than expected. 12.VI.11

Bov (9245) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - SEP 1, 2011
courtesy of Markus Wernig - clear dark ruby-brown colour with a moderate pinkish foam left; robust aroma of black currant and black cherries; light citrus notes; sweet and thin-bodied; slightly dry and short aftertaste with lingering notes of black currant - not without interest... for a soda
