yespr (30631) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - AUG 17, 2010
12 fl oz bottle, courtesy of fiulijn. Pours cloudy orange with a small white head. Aroma is mild herbal malty and hoppy fruity, slight oxidised. Peachy and slight citrusy flavoured. Bitter and dry malty into a bitter and dry hoppy finish. Dry and bitter lasting impression.

Ungstrup (29018) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 22, 2004
An unclear orange beer with a small disappearing lazing head. The aroma is very slight, but what is there is of oranges. The flavor is sweet hoppy and malty with a hoppy dry end.

joergen (20476) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 15, 2010
Bottle at fiulijn. Clear golden coloured with a meidum sized white ehad. Fruity aroma of hops, grass and pine needles. Fruity flavour of hoips and grass with notes of grape fruits. Dry hoppy finish.

oh6gdx (20216) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 7, 2006
Bottled. Orange opaque colour with small white head. Sweet caramellish hopping along with a bit cartboard in aroma. Flavour is strong grassy hops along with some salty and even weaker caramellish hints in aftertaste. Quite good, but not that impressive. Very dry palate.

omhper (19185) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 26, 2003
Bottled. Cloudy yellow. Appley, grassy aroma. Dry and clean. Hard mouthfeel, salty bitter finish. Less distinct than how I remembered it.

anders37 (16232) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JAN 19, 2006
This beer pours a golden hazy colour into the glass. It even looks a bit cloudy. Doesn’t pour much of a head. It has a big hoppy smell with some hint of citrus. And a bit fruity smell too. The flavor is fruity and hoppy, with some malty flavor too. It has some fruity aftertaste with some hint of citrus.

fiulijn (14290) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 14, 2010
Hazy golden color; small creamy head. At first it has a pungent vegetables aroma, beans. Quite simplistic malt profile; there is again some vegetables flavor; ordinary bitterness. Another one unfortunately staying too long in the cupboard.

TBone (12323) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 26, 2006
Bottled. Hazy aroma, small off-white head. Yeasty, wheaty-malty aroma. Crisp mouthfeel, bready malty, hops pop up in the finish. Balanced APA, but as uninspiring as the major part of this beer style.

bu11zeye (11925) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - APR 5, 2004
(Bottle) Pours a golden color with a medium white frothy head. Many tiny white floaties and lots of carbonation make this beer resemble some science experiment from the movies. I am waiting for the eruption of fumes from my beer beaker… The aroma of wet grass and florals ascends from the glass. Has flavors of grass, light hops, citrus, and sour milk.

argo0 (11316) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 20, 2003
Hazy golden body with floaties, topped by small white head. Aroma is mild floral, mild sweet. Taste is mild for the most part, finishing floral bitter. Acidic. Medium/light body.
