Sampled @ GJBF Yokohama: Gold, light white head, nice lacing. Nose of light malts, some hop very bland and vague. Some malts. Ok, but light. Not too noteworthy.

TimE (3802) - Tokyo, JAPAN - SEP 19, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2012 Clear golden color. Thick white head. This brew showed excellent malty breadiness through out with some toasted malt. Very good example of the style.

@ GJBF 2007. Pours hazy gold. Alright aroma of fruits, earth, and yeast. Body is a bit thin. Flavor is earthy, some grass, light citrus. Pretty decent if the flavor was more intense.

330 mL ‘pull’ cap bottle…straight from Japan via Santa’s (IslandHaole) USPS box, Cheers!: hazy sunshine yellow. Full, growing, tightly bubbled head. Sweet, fruity aromatics with light grains carrying the floral hops, bananas, and honeysuckle. Doughy tartness on the palate and a creamy mouth feel. A strange sourness lingers and is not totally unwanted…I really like these crazy Chateau beers…

omhper (20556) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUN 14, 2005
Bottled. Cloudy pale orange, near no head. There’s a tart citric edge in the aroma that is disturbing, but beneath that it is a fine beer. It’s fairly well hopped with rich malt character and clean, rounded mouthfeel. I wish I could’ve tasted this brewery fresh.

Not sure about this one. On one hand, it was pretty tart and bottle-conditioned. I’m not a fan of bottle-conditioning lighter styles because they pick up infection really quickly. But I can’t guarantee that’s what this was. It was a very clean tartness, no gusher, full body, no excessive carbonation. And it didn’t inhibit the drinkability of the beer, either. It was a lot like some of those French microbrews that always have this character (apparently intended).

Doughy, slightly spicy aroma with a hint of banana. Fairly yeasty, tart, with hints of bready malt.

JoeMcPhee (8819) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 19, 2005
Orange beer with fast dissipating head. Bottle conditioned. This is a strange duck. Aroma of sweet heather and clover honey. There is also a funky barnyard and leather character going on here as well. Slightly sour. Finish is sweet and floral. Maybe infected, but I get some similar notes off of the dunkel. Still an interesting brew.

IslandHaole (1091) - Yokosuka-Shi, Kanagawa-Ken, JAPAN - MAR 7, 2004
Slightly hazy, rich golden color with an eggshell colored head. Floral & clover honey scented. A tasty Helles, sweet but not cloying, a pleasant tangy follow makes for a well balanced taste. IMHO, the best of the CK line.

Ungstrup (29988) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 1, 2004
An unclear light yellow beer with a beutiful head. The aroma is dominated by oranges. The flavor is dominated by wheat malt in the begining, turning to oranges in the middle, and to end of on a very dry hoppy note.

Hildigöltur (5103) - København, DENMARK - DEC 29, 2003
Hazy pale yellow coloured. Honey aroma. Very sweet flavour with notes of candied orange.
