Ungstrup (34376) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 29, 2013
Bottled. An unclear golden beer with a lazing yellowish head. The aroma has notes of lemons, straw, and malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of brettanomyces, fruits, malt, and wood, leading to a tart finish. Thanks Theis for sharing.

Rune (11123) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 10, 2013
500ml bottle, batch 291, many thanks to OleR. Shared in the company of Finn during a session at his place. Straight apricot coloured body. Decent off-white head leaving nice lacework behind. Barnyard aroma with fruity acidity. Taste of basement dry, tart oranges and and lemon. Sweet, dry and tart ending, long-lived. Palate cleanser. Quite alright, however, not a big deal in my book (Tromsø, 08.05.2013).

Mora2000 (6155) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAY 8, 2013
Yellow with a white head. As I guess you can expect, the aroma has some sweet, sugary notes as well as some tart lemons. The flavor is similar. I get a lot of tart lemon notes up front, as well as some leathery funk and some light vinegar. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

I wonder which seasonal they mixed it with? I mix beers sometimes. This tastes like there Bavarian wheat and a Haandbakk. I really like it. Has a sweet & sour finish. Made want some Asian food. Crazy amount of big ugly floaters but it still tasted good. Don’t stir it up. Imperial wheat color. Great aroma.

Lilja (2792) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 12, 2013
Smak och doft av citrus, gräs, hö, humle, lätt ekfatskänsla, välbalanserad mellan sötma, syrlighet och beska. Mycket god.
