3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
50 cl bottle (4,3%) @ home. Rated on 11.10.2009
Lots and lots of foaming after the bottle was opened – and even more foam when pouring. Aroma feels a bit messy with wheaty notes and some citron. Palate is surprisingly too high on CO2. Flavour has soapy citrus, some spices and wheaty notes. Also a vichy‐like feeling typical to beers too high on CO2. Too messy but not hopeless.

Spicy aroma of citrus and yeast. violent foam shower and immediately disappears almost completely. The carbonation destroys the flavor. Again one must wonder how the beer got through quality control ... (almost as sour as gousse)

50 cl bottle, total gusher, pours reddish with a huge white head, aroma is spices and wheat, taste is slightly sour with spices and wheat malt, weak finish, thin body, not my kind of beer and borderline drainpour.

500 ml bottle. 4.3%. Finland.
Hazy darkish yellow orange colour with massive fluffy foamy white head.
Foams out of the bottle and it’s hard to pour because it foams like hell. BB is 16.07.2012. Yeast, wheat and spices in aroma.
Yeast, malt, wheat and spices in flavour. Mild metallic notes. Thin and watery.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Hazy yellowish orange colour with mediumsized white head. Aroma is wheat, coriander, spices, some slight fruity as well as acidic notes. Flavour is coriander, zest, some wheat, mild acidic wooden notes as well. OK Witbier, but a rather "mainstream" beer by Hornbeer...

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottled (BB 07/2012), alc. 4.3%
Hazy orange color, huge foamy white head. Coriander, orange peels and herbs in the nose. Very active carbonation. Flavor has wheat, coriander and vegetables. Too crisp, slightly odd. Not the best of Hornbeers.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
500 ml bottle. Straw color, insane white head that just goes everywhere. Slight, spicy aroma. Watery flavor with some wheat and spices. Desperately needs more body. High carbonation.
