Nuffield (3667) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - DEC 10, 2002
I bought a bottle of this at a French grocery store near the French-Belgian border. My friends’ annual 2001 Christmas beer tasting ranked it the lowest of 12 beers in the tasting. Perhaps our palates were already shot.

Miksu (4947) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - SEP 2, 2007
0.33 l bottle. Golden color with fluffy white head. Sweetish, mainly malty aroma with vanilla, toffee, clove, pepper and restrained fruitiness. Sweet, malty and spicy flavor, a bit cloying due to very low bitterness. Some alcohol, some clove and pepper as well as some estery fruitiness.

Ingevara (795) - SWEDEN - OCT 11, 2007
Frothy steady head. Sweet and malty, slightly syrupy. Strong in alcohol which is quite apparent. Aromatic - but not in an entirely positive way.

tarjei (1954) - Bryne, NORWAY - NOV 6, 2007
33 cl bottle. Golden color, ok white head. Fruity. Not very exiting. (RBNAG’07 in Grimstad Nov. 3th.)

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - NOV 22, 2007
33cl bottle from systembolaget. Clear golden body with a nice, firm white head and visible carbonation trails. Fruity, citrusy aroma, with some harsh alcoholic notes. Medium and smooth palate with nice lively carbonation. Not too much bitterness, sweet up front leading to a dryer and slightly unpleasant alcoholic finish. Mild hops. I was expecting a lot more from this, but it turned out to be a fruitier and slightly less harsh version of a strong swedish lager; better made for sure, but the hefeweizen went much better with thanksgiving dinner than this did.

austone (1062) - Turku; Pori, FINLAND - SEP 17, 2008
Orangey golden, small foamy white head. Very plain, alcoholic aroma, little wheat and spices. Sweet alcoholic, softly malty and spicy flavor. Little wheat. Medium bodied, strong carbonation. Plain and alcoholic, could be better ice cold.

Brandman (2063) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 14, 2011
Golden body, white head. Aroma has nice malty grains, some banana. Flavour adds some alcohol, metal and dry sharp sugary hoppy finish. Foamy.
