3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured into a perfect pint. Best before December, 2004...oops.
3.0 A: Lightly hazed orange yellow color. Appears to have no carbonation.
4.0 S: Very fragrant nose. Lots of floral and herbal notes. Smells like a craft store really. I assume a lot of the aroma comes from the gooseberries, but I don’t really know since I have no idea what a gooseberry is. Honey behind the flowers, lots of honey. Wheaty, wildflower funk, and light fruits. Unique and quite interesting.
3.5 T: Tastes like the nose, but is less potent. Honey, big floweriness, herbs. Light fruits, wildflower funk, toastiness. Lots of earth and a light mineral.
3.0 M: Lighter medium body. No carbonation. Drinks like a thickened water. Not bad, but not great either.
3.5 D: I don’t know what this would be like fresh, but with a lot of time on it, it’s quite tasty.
Serving type: bottle

Flaska. Lätt dimmig guldfärgad med vitt skum. Doftar citron, våt hund och något som säkert kan vara krusbär. Krusbären mer närvarande i smaken, tillsammans med en krispig citron och örtighet.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle, shared by robotopera. Best by June 2010. Hazy golden - orange color. Little white head. Medium body. Lighter, smooth, brighter carbonation. More dry texture. Lightly soapy. Some kind of wildberry type flavor, what I assume is gooseberry. Some sweet, kind of blonde malty flavor. Light spice. Weird soapy aftertaste. Ok... Kind of interesting. Better than expected for being about 3 years old

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
33cl bottle bierpost, BB 05/2013. - Pours an unctous pils-type gold with quickly collapsing head. Nose of cereal and lemonade, like a topfermenting Kölsch with stale honey. Hard to pick up on any gooseberry, but I get heather honey and coastal herbs (some tang, almost peat) fruit peel, qumquat, a pleasant late herbal bitterness. A dankish veil coupled with the undefinable green wild currant spice, mild but unexpected peat and oily mouthfeel make this less than refreshing, but not an altogether failed experiment either.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle from Beer Hawk - Light lager style body of a darkened yellow brown nature, with a small fizzy head. Nose is gooseberries, a bit musty, sour winter fruits. Taste is sour gooseberries,citrus, and unripe grapes. Bitter and sour finish, long and lasting.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma: Elderflower, tangerine and sour white grapes.
Appearance: Hazy pale golden body with a white fluffy head. No visible carbonation.
Taste: Sharp lemon and juicy grapefruit flavour. Like a lager but with more of a fruity character.
Palate: Medium body with a slightly chalky mouthfeel. Soft carbonation.
Overall: Given its low score, I enjoyed this more than I expected I would. It’s light, fruity and refreshing - an excellent summer beer.

UPDATED: DEC 27, 2013 Bottle from Brewdog Slovensko. Clear golden colour, short lasting white head. Aroma is a bit strange, spicy, wild yeast. Taste is sweet, some honey, fresh fruitiness. Berries, herbal. Finish fruity, lightly sourish, elderberry (might this be the gooseberry). Interesting beer.
