What appears to be a 12 oz. bottle, hand delivered by a friend of mine who was on vacation in Germany. Thanks Rick! Served in my only Kolsch glass, thanks Brian! Medium sized fizzy white head with fair retention and a small amount of stringy lace. Clear, straw colored, pretty effervescents. Nose is minerally, lightly grassy, lightly bready. Body is light, fairly well carbonated. Light maltiness, lightly grassy flavors, lightly sweet malts are a touch doughy. An almost dry, maltyesque finish, a touch salty. Not alot going on.

A Mes rate: draught at GBBF.
Bright yellow gold with an impressive white head and lace. Fresh as something that’s really fresh. Really soft and drinkable. Could be a sub 3% beer given how it drinks. Slips down an absolute treat. This was the first beer of the day on the Saturday after a whole week of drinking probably a little more than I should and anything else would have been a struggle. Stylish and elegant. Breakfast beer for the masses. Amazed I have not rated this before but I’m pleased that I waited until I could get a draught sample as it really is the only way to drink this stuff. Lovely.

Draft at the brewpub. Clear straw with a white head. Weak leafy herbal nose and flavor. Not a fan.

Borresteijn (5205) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 23, 2008
Bottle @ home. Straw golden colour, white head. Aroma of grass, malts. Taste is sweet, grassy, a little dry towards the finish. Starts really refreshing, becomes a bit cloying later on.

TrefwoordPunk (820) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - JUL 15, 2008
Bottle 50 cl. Pours a clear pale golden with a small and fading white head and a malty, maybe fishy aroma. The taste is malty and a tad sweet, but not too much. It’s really mild, I would have liked more of a "bite".

Maria (10187) - Thisted, DENMARK - JUN 14, 2008
The color is light golden and the head is nice and white. The aroma has malty and floral notes. The flavour has a light sweetness, notes of flower, light fruit and a slightly dry citrus. It’s mild, smooth and quite enjoyable.
