Pours a slightly hazy golden orange with a thick white head. Aroma of wheat, citrus, and yeast. Flavor is wonderfullly refreshing with a slight sweetness. I am not a big fan of this category of beers, but this takes the cake for me.

rusos (571) - Stupava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - AUG 31, 2016
Bottle at 100 piv. Hazy yellow golden colour. Almost no head. Aroma is not very significant, some hops, citrus, lemon, tangerine. Taste is hops, wheat, not very fresh. Nothing special.

Gurthnar (4867) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - AUG 31, 2016
Bottle at a tasting. Feeling rather stale, oxidized. Almost none of the hoppy goodness remains. Really not much joy in drinking this.

From an icecold bottle. Pours a hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma has spicy yeast notes, spicy hops, macaroons light wheat, fruity hops. Taste is medium sweet, wheaty, spicy, coriander seeds, white pepper, light lavender. Very low bitterness. Average carbonation and a light body.

Pours a cloudy, murky orange color. Lots of little flecks floating in there. Nicely carbonated, the flecks are swirling around nicely. About two finger thick, firm white head. Light retention, okay lacing.

Aroma is wheat, yeast. Maybe a little coriander. Orange juice.

Taste is bright, light orange and orange zest. Yeasty and wheaty. Maybe some light earthy hops. It’s leaning sweet, not bitter. A little spicy from coriander. It’s not super flavorful, but pleasant tasting.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied. It has a creamy and smooth taste. This is 5.8%, no way....There is some spiciness in the finish, I’m thinking it may be from hops, not sure.

Overall, it’s pretty good. Keeps you guessing, sweet, mildly spicy. I don’t know if I’d call it a session beer, because of the ABV, but man, it’s good. Yeah, I would buy this again. I would also recommend this one.

Can from Kihoskh in Copenhagen. Fruity smell. Fruity smell with some bready malts. Feels like the hops has faded in this one, still drinkable though.

kaserov (120) - Oviedo, SPAIN - AUG 23, 2016
Color amarillo plátano con capa de espuma blanca de menos de un dedo de grosor. Carbonatación media tirando a alta. Restos de levadura/sedimentos/especias (diría lo último), altamente concentrados en el poso de la lata. Tan concentrados que cuando eché las últimas gotas el color amarillo pasó a ser blanco. Más bien parecía leche. No es algo que me eche para atrás, solo lo comento de pasada, para navegantes. El aroma es, en cierto modo, distinto al sabor y más pronunciado: trigo, especias. No capto malta y no capto lúpulo. El sabor es una variación del aroma, sin arriesgar. Sabe a trigo, de nuevo, a especias (no sé si cilantro), pero no capto lúpulo alguno. Unidimensional, refrescante y para de contar. No suelo hablar de precios, pero en este caso haber pagado 5 euros por algo tan plano (y viniendo de Bells) me hace recapacitar por enésima vez sobre mis gustos y los gustos de los demás. No voy a mentir, me la bebí entera porque costó lo que costó, pero es una total decepción.

Burk från Mikkellers webbshop. Smak och doft av humle, jäst, vete, citrus, apelsin ohc persika. Lätt kropp och beska, fin sötma, mjuk och juiceig känsla, beska med smak av citrus- och apelsinskal. Gott!
