Maria (10136) - Thisted, DENMARK - JUN 16, 2010
Blindtasting at Fonefan 12.06.2010, thanks Jan and Charlotte! It’s hazy golden with a creamy head and the aroma has notes of malt, light syrup, candy sugar, light yeast and fruit. The flavour is sweet with notes of clover-flower, malt, light yeast, light elderflower and light fruit – it’s refreshing and easy to drink.

Drake (8536) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - APR 5, 2014
Bottle shared at the WWGT2D? Charlottesville tasting, 4/5/14. Pours a hazy amber color with a large fizzy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of honey, nuts, grain, green notes, citrus. The taste is lime jello, candied citrus, spice. Thin bodied, slight lingering spice. Reminds me of Starr Hill Lucy, which is not a good thing. Weird beer.

Rune (8042) - Tromsø, NORWAY - APR 17, 2012
100ml sample, 6% abv., from tap at Open Baladin. Unclear amber with a layer at the top. Fragile lacing. Fruity nose with lighter notes of spices. Mild juicy fruits in flavour added by semi-tart apples. Sweet and spicy to the swallow. Summer feel and session-like (Roma 31.03.2012).

JorisPPattyn (7907) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 9, 2012
Medium, whitish head over hazed orange beer. Citrus (orange), wheat, spices, orangeliqueur. Again citrus & wheat (or speciality grain...) mainly; possibly coriander, but restrained (enough). Still perfumey, and rather slanted towards the artificial. Warming up, ginger. Soft, velvety MF despite the more than adequate carbonation. The problem with del Borgo - and more Italian craftbrewers - is that their flavours are often a bit forced. This is no exception.
