saxo (14158) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - DEC 29, 2013

yngwie (14115) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 28, 2007
Bottle, shared by papsoe. Orange-yellow pour, with a white head. There’s sediments in the bottle. Pale malt, citrus and a sweetish note in the aroma. The flavor is sour and sweet, quite malty, with some spice notes and hints of orange. Medium to thin body, and a fruity finish with a little acidic touch. Drinkable and refreshing, but the beer didn’t convince me it was worthy. (071006)

Draught at Birreria Paradiso. Hazy straw colored. Aroma of freshly mown grass. Light spice toward the middle, balanced bitter finish. Nice example of the style.

Tap at BCTC. Pours cloudy orange with a mild, white head. Aroma holds some modestly tart citrus. Flavor is sweet and spicy with some pear, banana and bubblegum notes. Light in body with fine carbonation. Fruity, sweet finish, clean with light tartness. Very nice.
