Ungstrup (30414) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 23, 2005
A hazy orange beer with a nice white head. The aroma is sweet yeasty, and spicy with coriander standing out. The the flavor is just as the aroma and with a dry end.

harrisoni (15059) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2006
65cl bottle from Auchan, Calais. Hey my 100th different French beer and there was me thinking it was all Kronenbourg and Export 33. Clear gold colour with thick white head. Spicey lemon aroma. Very drinkable blond beer in the mouth, bit of spice, oranges too. Bit soapy on aroma and in mouth. Very soft mouthfeel. Finish has some interesting orange fruit notes. Yes, for my 100 not a bad biere de garde. Spice and orange fruit over a soft lager style body.

thewolf (11492) - Kolding, DENMARK - DEC 30, 2011
Bottle, bought @ LIVA, Kolding.
Clear golden with a super-nice, staying, creamy white head. A truly perfect looking blonde. Aroma is sweetish, citric, doughy. Light herbal. High carbonation, lightish mouthfeel. Flavour has some pilsner-feel to it at first, citric and sugary, but redeems itself with an okay malty sweetness with a finish with a light vinious finish. Average, but truly pretty.
