Ungstrup (30005) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 24, 2007
Bottled. An unclear light yellow beer with a thin white head. The aroma is of ginger, coriander, and citrus. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of ginger and a boring coriander not. The body is thin.

Pours a slightly hazed straw with a white head. Nose is lemon and citrus on the nose with a straw edge to it that just gives an earthy, plant like fragrance. Very perfume like, but also like walking through a field of aromatic flower stems that were just cut. I could take a whiff of this one for hours. Flavor is smooth and even. There is a straw like quality that stays earthen and thick, though still light enough overall to enjoy. Feel is smooth and silky with a balanced carbonation. Definitely drinkable, though it is fairly different and unique which might detract for some. Plus for such a high price (again with the Hitachino), is it really worth it? $5? Hmmm. No.

Soonah (1120) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - AUG 14, 2007
The pour was a slightly cloudy copper color with a compact white head. Some lacing. The aroma was yeast, spice (coriander & cinnamon) along with a bit of citrus. The flavor was dominated by yeast and citrus. Some floral notes as well. The finish was succinct and I thought this was an very nice compliment to my sushi.

Hazy, golden/orange appearance with a small off white head and little lacing. Spicy aroma with a good dose of orange zest and lemon. Tart, dry, herbal, spicy taste with some wheaty flavors below deck. Medium-to-light bodied, well carbonated mouthfeel with a dry short lived finish.

i never really liked these white ales. this one starts out much like the rest. mostly ginger carrot type vegetable yeecchh! but let this beer settle in the glass for twenty minutes or so and you get some really good flavors mainly lemon that complement the texture (which is slickish). Aaron you did alright. first white ale i like! don’t know if it’s exactly beer,but it is a good brew.

minch25 (577) - Medford, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 5, 2007
Extra pale cloudy yellow. Spritzy. Spicy/bitter orange peel flavor. Wheaty. Not bad, but could be more refreshing, and a 750ml is too much at once.

slimchill (1044) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 1, 2007
Bottle. Delicious sweet nose, lots of coriander with some peach and apricot. Cloudy yellow with a slight ring of foam and unmoving bubbles that just kind of hover. Lots of coriander taste, with some hints of citrus and vanilla. Very well done, extremely smooth palate. Surprising from this brewery, as I’ve been disappointed by other efforts. Really great wit.
