sayravai (4674) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 25, 2010
(Bottled, sampled 2010-03-10) Bright poisony-green with a smallish, firm and lasting, lacy head, that looks like pear ice cream. Aroma is dominated by pleasant Belgian-style yeast, fruitiness, and grainy-caramely maltiness. Strongly fruity flavor is slightly Belgian-yeasty and pale-malty. A pleasantly balanced and fruity session ale - one of the best you can find in Finnish supermarkets. No E-codes here, despite the cool color!

TET (1618) - FINLAND - APR 4, 2010
Weird, poison-green colour and almost medium white head. Aroma is pleasant: wheat, sourness, some spicy and lemon. Flavour is similar than aroma, belgian wheats, lemons, yeast and some spicyness. Fresh and quite light to drink with high carbonation, but it fitts nicely within this beer. Refreshning, witbier -like, pleasant and aromatic beer.

33 cl bottle @ home. Rated on 07.03.2010
Aroma has grain, some fruits and spices. Flavour has Belgian yeast, fruits, banana, wheaty notes and some citron. Refreshing, a positive surprise.

lusikka (6207) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 26, 2010
330 ml bottle @ home. Rated @ 14.7.2010.
Pours a green colour with a medium-sized frothy head. Doesn’t look very tempting. Aroma of herbs, grass and mild hops. Flavour of caramel malts, grass and herbs. Slightly hoppy finish. Why did they add the green colour here?

TBone (12544) - Pori, FINLAND - MAR 23, 2010
Bottled (from K-Kamppi)
Colour is of course bright green like an absinth, steady white head, lace. Yeasty nose has bubblegum and apricot aromas. Flavor has grains, coriander, banana, fruity yeast and orange peel. Quite witbier-like. Medium-bodied, but palate is pretty thin. Well-brewed beer which biggest asset is its color.

joergen (20662) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 31, 2012
Bottle at yespr. Clear green coloured with a medium sized white head. Fruity aroma of caramel with notes of bread. Sweet and fruity flavour of caramel and grass. Sweet finish.

oh6gdx (20299) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAR 19, 2010
Bottled (from K CM Kivihaka, Vaasa). Poisongreen colour with pale green mediumsized fluffy/foamy head. Aroma is grass, some herbs, earth and mild notes of rubber. Flavour is bready malts, some grass, herbs and earth. Not very exciting, but the colour is something of the funniest I have seen after I had the stronger grass bock x years ago.

rmasa (324) - Vantaa, FINLAND - APR 19, 2010
Pours green with longlasting light-green head; mild grassy hoppy aroma, also slightly yeasty and fruity; almost medium body, moderate carbonation; flavor starts quite malty, but is soon overcome by grassy and spicy hops; hints of exotic fruits in the finish. This beer is really all about the color - and I don’t even like the color.

Bottle. [thanks, Patrick]
Pours crazy neon-green with a big, frothy, green-white head. Fine lacings. Sweet malty aroma, some green apple notes, a touch of esters. Highish carbonation, quite watery and mildly dry palate. Flavour is mild, fairly earthy and a bit sugary. Not really too impressive. Fun colour, though.
