"Mit dem Boltens Landbier haben wir ein Bier gebraut, welches natürlich die besten Zutaten der Landwirtschaft nutzt, aber vor allem, welches einen vollen, aromatischen Biergeschmack hat, der nicht nur aus einer überzogenen Hopfung herrührt, sondern aus der besonderen Malzmischung. Der obergärigen Brauart sind wir selbstverständlich treu geblieben, schon alleine wegen der Bekömmlichkeit, aber auch weil die obergärige Hefe wegen der höheren Gärtemperatur mehr Geschmacksstoffe bildet, insbesondere Geschmacksstoffe mit einer leicht fruchtigen Note. Und weil wir natürlich alles an Geschmack erhalten wollen, was da so entsteht, belassen wir das Boltens Landbier - genau wie früher - so wie es ist, nämlich naturtrüb." (Info from the homepage of the brewery)

Ungstrup (29851) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 16, 2008
Bottled. An unclear golden-amber beer with a lazing beige head. The aroma is very sweet with notes of fruit and some notes of vitamins. The flavor is sweet with strong ntoes of straw and medium notes of malt, leading to a dry bitter finish where the straw note lingers around.

On tap at Bruxellensis. Cloudy pale gold colour with lasting white head. Pretty good, nice character. Nice light lager, being unfiltered gives it character.

MiP (13799) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - FEB 14, 2008
Bottle, 4.9%. Citric aroma with OK rough hoppiness. Cloudy orange/grey colour. Big, stable, creamy, tan head. The flavour has a very faint hint of fine hop aroma. Apart from that, the hops are rather rough and uncompromising. OK, but cheap-tasting hops. The yeast gives a nice mouthfeel. Gets a little chunky at the bottom.

Koelschtrinker (11070) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 21, 2011
Hopfiger Geruch. Dass das Bier gut gehopft ist, wird bereits im Antrunk deutlich. Leicht würzig, dafür etwas bitter geht es im Geschmack weiter. Im Nachgeschmack weiterhin bitter, ein herber Ton ist ebenfalls präsent. Sicherlich kein herrausragendes Bier. Test vom 14.1.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 10,8,8,9,10,9 - 8,85

pivnizub (9039) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JAN 1, 2007
Swing-top bottle (diky, MoritzF): Hazy, golden coloured, lacing fluffy white head; wheat, yeast, citrousy hops in the aroma; soft MF, light bodied, moderate sweet-bitter flavour; sweetish-grainy finish with a fruity, citrousy touch. A well crafted beer of an unknown style.......

MoritzF (8590) - Bochum, GERMANY - JAN 2, 2007
(swing top bottle) Cloudy, pale golden colour with a short and creamy, slightly off-white layer. Yeasty, slightly sweet grainy, also a bit wheaty aroma with delicate citrousy hops and light notes of barnyard. Moderately sweet, light bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with a smooth carbonation. Yeasty, malty taste, again slightly wheaty with a faint fruity note; dryish malty and yeasty bitter finish. Well-quaffable top-fermented brew.
This brew reminds me of descriptions of Keutebier, a top-fermented style, originated from the Lower Rhine area, that was very popular between the 15th and 19th century. It was one of the earliest beers brewed with hops (instead of herbs, Grutbier for example) and contained besides barley- also amounts of wheat- and spelt-malt. Keutebier can be seen as a predecessor of Kölner Wiess and Kölsch.
