yngwie (14774) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 9, 2012
Bottle. Almost clear, golden in color and topped by a finger thick off-white head. It’s lightly funky on the nose, lemony, with hints of maltyness, as well as canned peaches and some orange peel. Canned peaches, generic fruityness and sugar in the flavor, lacking on bitterness in all phases. Medium body, a bit low on carbonation. Well, I gave it 3.1, but I’m not sure it deserves that high a score. 110916

DutchDrebus (4528) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - FEB 17, 2012
Hazy orange, no head. Smells quite hoppy and fruity. Tastes sweet, watery and a bit iron like. For me way too much carbo. Makes it hard to drink.
