rane (999) - Nibe, DENMARK - MAY 31, 2011
Bottle. Pale yellow with small white head. Aroma quite weak malt and caramel maybe a little earth. Taste sweet malts, very soft and mellow, a little grassy. I don´t know much about this style, but people are probably right, when they say they shall be drunk in Köln.

crossovert (10681) - Illinois, USA - MAY 5, 2011
An ale in theory but a lager at heart. 0,33 cl bottle MHB: 14.09.11. It pours a clear and bright gold with a foamy but frothy bright white head. It leaves little bit of small speckles behind. The smell is grainy with a light bit of light fruit and a kiss of hops. The flavor is interesting. It has a unique fruitiness that i haven’t yet tasted in this style. It is like white wine/grapes almost. It has a slight bit of hops, but the main flavor is an overriding fruity sweetness. The mouthfeel is not as light as expected, it is under-carbonated. It is an interesting beer, at least it isn’t monotonous. Don’t be araid of this style, it isn’t that bad.

Martinus (4350) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - APR 20, 2011
Straw yellow, small but firm white head. Aroma is quite sweet, malt tones and light notes of hops. Taste is rather sweet, malts, notes of corn, bit grassy. Only very light hops. Mild and drinkable, nothing really exciting. (from 0,5L bottle)

Yellow with a big white head. Clean bready with a slight fruitiness and some flowery hops. Dry with a medium bitter finish. Would do well as a thirst-quencher in summer time.
