Palme (3637) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 24, 2013
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 itís heated a bit. Not bad at all actually. Itís thin watery on the mouthfeel and the carbonation level is about average. In the taste itís 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 wasnít all that bad. Probably the best Iíve had from these guys, 18.02.2013

Golden ale with high wheat content, flavoured with elderflower, clearly trying to mimic continental weissbeers, but the balance isnít quite right. It looks and smells fine but it is a bit thin on the palate with a slightly bitter aftertaste.

kiwianer (3428) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 12, 2012
The head is ok. It smells, malty. The first taste is a bit citrus, then it is low aromatic, but a bit malty. Could be more flavour 11/10/9/9/12/9

WeissGary (286) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - JUL 6, 2012
I wasnt too wild for this one, quite a strong citrus aroma, soft tasting but quite bitter, dry and all round rough experience... This is a good brewery but this particular beer is one I am not keen on from them.

Nilz (490) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAY 12, 2012
A clear pale yellow with a decent head that lasts. The aroma is a fresh floral hops. Tastes are a light dry bitterness with some sweet maltness.Rather pleasant as a session ale.
