Ughsmash (7135) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 2, 2008
Many, many thanks to Edo for sending this my way.. I never would have thought to ask for it. Poured just slightly hazy golden with a bit of orange hue to it.. short, swirly cap of white head. The aroma was soft and seductive with lemon and sweeter bread upfront.. dry, tart lemon zest built up behind it.. subtle hints of earth, peppery spices, and honey also made a presence. The flavor had bready and pale malts at the core surrounded by an ample dose of lemon zest and earthy bitterness.. sticky, refreshing bitterness on the finish. Very dry on the palate and lighter-bodied.. refreshing. I sure wish this was available locally.

raw hop skunk and sweat bread. Flavor is fructose and dry hop that compliments nicely. Smooth and ballanced. Slight harshness to the overall flavor mostliky from the cask... Ballances out the sweetness.

henrikb (1258) - Aarhus, DENMARK - MAR 19, 2008
UPDATED: OCT 12, 2008 Bottle - Beautiful clear golden body with a fine white head; Beautiful big elegant earth hoppy nose, fine malt notes; Very good and interesting body, very bitter from both malt and hop, barrel like harshness is present and fitting, it is a very little to watery though; The finish is a little to watery as well, hop and malt bitter, lots of earth hop aroma that lasts very long. Very very good beer, very interesting, very pleasant, complex and new (to me at least)

Hunsell (400) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAR 12, 2008
Bottle @ Kafe Belgie. Fruity smell, herbal hops coming in. Nice fruity sweetness in taste with a lingering piney hopbitterness. Fullbodied, considering its abv.

MiP (13598) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - FEB 27, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 16, 2009 Bottle, 5.0%. Very nice hop aroma, fruity, refreshingly grassy, and sweet. Hazy golden colour. Small stable chalk white head. The flavour starts off with a distint, clean bitterness. There is also some of the same hoppiness as in the aroma, though more flowery than fruity. Has a little watery notes in the finish, but still nice. 7 3 7 3 15

Cask at GBBF08. Weak tea aroma. Cloudy orange colour. Small head. Teaish flavour. Very low carbonation. 6 3 6 3 13

Bottle, 4.5%. Citric grassy hop aroma. Cloudy golden colour. The flavour is citric and grassy from the hops. OK mouthfeel and OK beer considering the ABV. 6 3 6 3 16

sayravai (4673) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 27, 2007
(Bottled, 5% ABV) Hazy light amber with a medium to large, lacy and lasting head. Freshly flowery-piney-herby-hoppy aroma with strawberries and tropical fruit. Aromatic-flowery-hoppy, quite fruity flavor with a dry finish. Medium-bodied, quite carbonated palate. Pleasantly dry, and extremely aromatic for a Dutch beer. Nice, and not even watery, IMO. Too bad I didn’t get a big bottle of this...

altonbrownd (3702) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 9, 2007
Bottle from Bier Koning. Orange cream colour. Decent head. Nose is hoppy. Quite soft and unassuming. Some caramel. Fruits too (peach, mango.) Well-balanced. With a nice hoppy finish. Enjoyable. A new type of bitter for me.

dirkbreedveld (288) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 29, 2007
Low alcohol beer, with lot’s of hopflavour. Fresh in the mouthfeel, golden colour, a little watery maybe, but the oparoma’s are the best i’ve tasted in a bitterlager.
