COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Bottle at Känguruh Pub. Mild, refreshing, easy drinkable but also a bit watery. Good but nothing special. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bamsen78 (3949) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAR 7, 2015
Bottle, courtesy of fonefan, opened at The Unholy Trinity Meets Again, Sønderborg. Pours cloudy straw with airy white head. Clear aroma of yeast and malt, with some subtle spicy notes. Bitter and dusty flavour of hops and spices, with estery and malty notes. Estery and malty finish. Okay but nothing really impressive. I don’t know whether the dusty notes are meant to be there.

Ysok02 (204) - MOns, BELGIUM - MAR 1, 2015
Robe trouble, mousse peu persistante. Nez agréable fruit et épices. Bouche ronde, mais manquant d’ampleur et de complexité. Une blanche assez banale.

Icedwarf (566) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - DEC 21, 2014
Lichtgeel, licht troebel bier met schuim. Smaak is fruitig en ietwat zoet-zuur en hoppig, jeneverbes ? Duidelijk anders dan de meeste witbieren. Verrassend goed.

33cl bottle. Hazy pale yellow colour with a small white head. Lemon, coriander and wheat in the aroma. Average carbonation and medium body. Taste is light with some spicy notes. Overall, a nice refreshing beer but nothing more than that.
