Wischylini's rating

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 2/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 5/20
Wischylini (151) - Grimstad, - NOV 16, 2013
Pours a hazy yellow, with a formidable, fluffy white head that stays for a long time and leaves a nice lacing. The aromas on the nose are lively and fruity, the most prominent notes being grapefruits and hops. The aroma in the mouth is mostly dominated by hops, with a spicy tinge and some pale malts, and a slightly metallica aroma too. The taste is very bitter, and the palate is allover average and anonymous. The Humlesus has an intriguing fruity aroma, but the overall taste is simply too bitter for my taste.

DruncanVeasey (7423) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 26, 2015
Bottle from...Norway. Probably Bergen airport. Dulled blonde narrowly capped with white. Rather beautiful aroma of lychee-dripped honeycomb, zested lime and humid green stems. Possibly a Whiff of Burton if you inhale deeper, certainly CE. Cask softness with a punchy sting of grapefruit and lemon zest mellowed with dunked English biscuit. A little rustic around the edges with detritus aplenty. Bonus point. Creamy and stewed hop afters. Could be Mallinsons. Very fine work indeed.

Green-brownish almost muddy appearance, with lots of foamy head that lasts for a while. Quite bitter and somewhat sour with fruity notes.

olsvammel (3835) - Örebro, SWEDEN - MAR 12, 2015
Bottle at a big tasting (Nördprovning 2015). Hoppy smell with grass and herbs. Similar taste, light hoppy. Not overly fresh but drinkable.

DSG (7536) - Tel Aviv, - JAN 9, 2015
Bottle sample at a tasting at Max’s place. Thanks Stas. Hazy yellow with an off-white head. Hoppy aroma with tropical fruits and light graininess. Dry flavor with a bit of graininess, fruity hops and moderate bitterness. Quite light-bodied, kinda over-carbonated.

Aniela (2552) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 6, 2015
A bottle at home in summer 2014. A bit hazy amber beer with a offwhite head. Hoppy and fruity aroma. Similar flavour, feels really refreshing - a nice summerbeer.

BlazerT (150) - POLAND - JAN 4, 2015
Bottle. Golden, little hazy with huge, white, semi-densed head. Great head retention. Medium lacing. Light tropical fruits aroma (pinapple) and light to medium citrus aroma (orange, lemon). Pale ale malts also noticable. Light bitterness Light body, thin texture, semi-dry, lively carbonation. Finish is short, dry and light bitter. Very drinkable and refreshing, good session beer.

fiulijn (15977) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 23, 2014
Bottle from Birratrovo, Como; batch 668, brewed 14.10.13, bb 14.10.14
Hazy blond color with medium fluffy head. The aroma is hoppy, herbal and vegetable (some cabbage too); not pure. Dry mouthfeel; also the flavor takes a bit of the vegetable turn; strong bitterness with an impression of Citra, not as good as in other beers.
Chaotic result; and not delivering fresh hop quality.
