3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Medium offwhite head. Clear golden body with carbonation. Floral
earthy aroma with elderberry notes. Dry citric floral taste with
strawy herbal notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, fizzy mouthfeel. Dry
herbal wheaty aftertaste with dusty mealy elderberry notes.
Nice, if perhaps a little bit too bitter. The elderberry is
fairly subtle, don’t think I’d have picked it up, if it didn’t
say on the bottle. (0.5l bottle, Meny Strømmen Storsenter.)

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Flaska. Guldfärgad, lätt bubblig, med mediumstort vitt skum. Doftar citron, av något sött parfymigt, så fyller också en örtighet på. Mycket märklig och kort smak. Det är mest jordigt, lite dammigt - och bakom detta anas citron och gräs, men de får aldrig plats att mer än anas.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Meny Manglerud enjoyed at home
Golden, bit white head. Smells of malts, spice, hints of spices and floral perfume. Moderate sweet, quite fruity for a golden ale, malts and wheat. Medium bitter, green grass and leaves, some resins and alot of that perfume like elderflower and citrus they have put in this beer. A strange beer - not a total failure but not a success either

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.5l bottle. This is a crystal clear golden one with a small quickly islandy and sidesticking bubbly white top. It smalls quite nice this. Inviting, hoppy and slightly fruity. Traces of caramel and a strong present citrus aroma. Also some faint diacetyl hints when it’s heated a bit. Not bad at all actually. It’s thin watery on the mouthfeel and the carbonation level is about average. In the taste it’s not as fruity, but the citrus is present. Almost lime-like with a clear slightly pungent floral touch. Without having had to much of the elderflowers in my mouth before I actually recognize this flavor. Quite dry and light grassy bitter in the finish finish. Well, it is what it is, but the aroma wasn’t all that bad. Probably the best I’ve had from these guys, 18.02.2013

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Golden ale with high wheat content, flavoured with elderflower, clearly trying to mimic continental weissbeers, but the balance isn’t quite right. It looks and smells fine but it is a bit thin on the palate with a slightly bitter aftertaste.
