Ungstrup (28458) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 7, 2009
Bottled. A golden beer with a thin white head. The aroma sweet buttery combined with notes of elderberries. The flavor is sweet with notes of butter, elderflowers, and wheat, leading to a lightly tart finish. Thanks yespr for sharing.

hopscotch (8552) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 31, 2009
Bottle... GSRARO Throwdown... Clear, light yellow ale with little to no head. Not very aromatic – maybe some pale grain and herbal notes; maybe not. Power of suggestion? Wishful thinking? Light-bodied and fizzy. Perfectly balanced, but bland, lifeless, watery and thin. Short, crisp finish. Bottle courtesy of TheCheeseMan!

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JAN 31, 2009
Bottle, courtesy TheCheeseMan. Pours a clear, medium golden color with a minimal, fizzy, off-white head. The nose is vegetal and buttery, with intense juniper that overpowers whatever underlying wheat there might be. Favors are yeast and bready up front, with acrid juniper and weird, bitter vegetable notes. Light bodied and fizzy, even the mouthfeel disappoints. This one is a drainpour.

Ethereal (2409) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JAN 2, 2009
Bottles from the brewery prototype box, 21st Dec 08 and 1st January 09. Pale gold with a line of head. Aroma of wheat and lemon peel & passion fruit with a hint of honey and toffee. Taste of honeyed malts and a decent hop bitterness. Surprisingly hefty mouthfeel. Good lingering aftertaste. Bit of a dusty dryness too.

bobinlondon (1250) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2008
Bottle from brewery mixed case. Clear blond with dense white head. Not to mch aroa but juniper berries just about detectable. Subtle flavour with no outstandind notes. Smooth and refreshing.

harrisoni (12675) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2008
Bottle in the mixed prototype box. Clear gold, lasting white head. Juniper on aroma, some yeast. A very tasty slightly spicy beer. Cereal isnt overly evident. Good hop stong on finish. Bit of creamy wheat on aroma maybe. Finish is excellent, that bit of spicy juniper and hop. Finishes better than it starts.

Nightfall (1307) - Hamburg, GERMANY - DEC 22, 2008
Bottle (no label orange cap) thanks to Magic Dave6. Golden orange color. Thin white head. My first Wheat ale. It tastes indeed like a mixture of Wheat beer with an ale. Slightly bitter. Hints of banana (much less than the average Hefeweizen though). Other fruit also present (mostly citric fruits). Rather refreshing and enjoyable.

Rune (7361) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 14, 2008
Pint, cask served in excellent condition and at a comfortable drinking temperature at Aikman’s Cellar Bar in St Andrews. Clear, copper-golden body under a decent white head that laces moderately around the glass. Great appealing aroma of hoppy freshness. Sappy fruits in flavour with notes of grapefruits, juniper and berries. Has also got a slightly wheat beer touch. A fresh, dry, living and well-bodied product [04.11.2008].

maeib (8404) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - NOV 30, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 14, 2010 Bottled A clear orange coloured beer with the tiniest of whitish heads. A sweet perfumed aroma with a hint of toffee. Again sweet in the mouth, hints of honey. Floral. Difficult to categorise. Late bitterness. It’s OK Score 3.1
Subsequent ratings scored 3.4 and 2.8. Average unalterted
