GBZ59 (1063) - BARCELONA (Catalonia), SPAIN - JAN 27, 2014
Botella de 330ml (Embotellada en feb´12. Saboreada en Ene´14). Copa Borgoña. Color ámbar anaranjado y apariencia turbia. Espuma blanca, bastante buena retención, corona tupida y persistente capa fina en la superficie. Aromas herbales, cítricos -naranja y pomelo- y malta moderadamente tostada con notas de galletas y toques fenólicos. La entrada de tostado moderado y cremoso es barrida por un amargor cítrico y ascendente. Cuerpo medio y carbonatación moderada aunque chispeante. Paladar picante y burbujeante. Final amargo y retrogusto con leve cítrico. Refrescante, aterciopelada y densa pero, desafortunadamente, la carbonatación arruina el resultado final. 330ml bottle (Bottled on feb´12. Enjoyed on jan´14). Wine glass. Orangish amber color, foggy appearance. Off-white froth, fairly good retention, close crown & lasting thin layer on top. Citric -orange & grapefruit-, mild toasted malt & herbal aromas with biscuit notes & phenolic touches. Mild toasted & creamy upfront is swept it out by increasing citric bitterness. Medium body. Moderate but lively carbonation. Spciy & gorgeous palate! Bitter finish & slight citric aftertaste. Refreshing, velvety & dense but, unfortunately, carbonation ruins it.

Lagerboy (1172) - British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 23, 2014
33 cl bottle. Ridiculously huge white foamy head with some mostly clear orange copper liquid beneath it. Aroma of coriander clove citrus and wheat. Tastes mostly like a wiezen, citrus and Belgian yeast, a bit floral, mild spicy herbal hop, smooth oats are also noticeable. Excessive carbonation, light-medium bodied, lightly hopped. Light and lusty finish. NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

hobsch (409) - Cologne, GERMANY - JAN 16, 2014
From tap at Zly Casy Praha. Pours hazy with small head. Aroma is pine, fruit. Taste is medium sweet, medium bitter, pine, floral. Low carbonation, easy going. But sweet.

FatPhil (9007) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 7, 2014
330ml bottle (BierKompass.de)
Pale orange, optionally hazy or cloudy depending on how much you pour, huge loose head - carbonation high. Sharp fruity aroma, white grapey, a touch sour, some sourmashy light grains, light spices, coriander-seed. Hazy one had more cakey breadiness, which is a bit nicer. Carbonation high in the mouth, a bit watery, but in a way smoothish too. Retronasals a bit earthy in the hazy one, not so good. Some swimming pool retronasals in both of them. Just a simple pale ale with OK hopping, nothing much going on for me. Nice orange zest and hoppy bite in the finish in the clear one. Better as it warms, less bubbly, fuller in the mouth, and a little sweeter in the fruitiness - worth another point overall to 13. Clear is the clear winner, IMHO - so drink clear. And therefore don’t drink this straight from the bottle! Jookos - bad juovo!

jookos (1928) - FINLAND - OCT 28, 2013
Bottle, served from bottle. Seems like a dry bitter citrus light corianderish ale. Has flavours, but hard to digest straight from the bottle, keeps foaming up. Pale malts, citrus. Refreshing.

olio (5856) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 11, 2013
33 cl bottle.
Pours mostly foam but there also seems to be a small amount of copper colored liquid. The head dissipates rapidly though. Lots of things going on on the nose; very crisp citric fruits, apricot, wheat and spices, herbal notes and yeast also. Surprisingly smooth palate, lemony fruits, some hay and yeast with a hint of spices at the end. Quite an interesting brew but definitely a one-time try.

jeverszeuge (543) - GERMANY - SEP 14, 2013
# 3355 ersma: klingt ja recht deutsch, der name. das „licht“ sind immerhin noch 5,2 volt. riesiger schaumberg, der sich sehr stabil gibt und das probieren zur geduldsprobe werden lässt. ansonsten orange-bernsteinfarben und trübe. der geruch ist fruchtig mit viel zitrus (nachgehopft mit cascade)und etwas beeren und kirsche. der antrunk ist zitrusartig und leicht bitter, aber auch fruchtig-süßliche noten sind vorhanden, dazu etwas hefe. zur mitte hin deutlich mehr hopfenherbe, die fruchtigkeit steigt ebenfalls an. der abgang bleibt bitter-fruchtig mit zitrus und kirsche, vermehrt malzige aromen, die süße akzente mitbringen. die flasche ist wie immer informativ und in ihrer schlichtheit ansehnlich. fazit: sommerlich erfrischend. probierenswert 13,11,11,12,12,11 - 11,40 - 14/9/13
