edpeg (856) - Berlin, - FEB 17, 2012
0,33l botle . Pours pale yellow murky cloudy with white thick head. Aromas citrus, wheat, fruits. Palate is medium full-bodied watery with smooth slick medium carbonation, texture mouthful. Taste has witbier kind of middle taste with wheat-like yeasty structure and bitter acidic finish in mouth. Green tea bitterness is somewhat distinct in the finish. Quite interesting and refreshing style, there’s definitely some similarities with Belgian witbiers (see brewed by...), but the taste is more sweet in the finish. Green tea and yuzu flavours are nominal. Could drink this again.

Holmen2 (1791) - NORWAY - AUG 1, 2015
Bottle on board Fridtjofen 01.08.15. Hazy pake yellow. Foamy and persistent white head. Aroma of banana, coriander and some citrus. Taste of boiled vegetables, lemon and lime marmelade and green tea. High carbonation. A bit waterish

Gangstergafje (274) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - JUL 19, 2015
The beer pours the roughest white foam I have ever seen. The beer is very pale. The color is yellow with a greenish glow. The beer doesn’t really look like beer. The smell is almost absent. There is an extremely little malt aroma, in a far away distance. There is a little sweet fruity aroma, which is nice. The taste is also quite weak. The taste is nice, but to weak. The taste is sweet and fruity, nice. There is a kind of hoppy bitter/sour-complex. It is a nice beer, unique, but the aroma’s and tastes could have been a little bit more distinctive.

Gurthnar (3022) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUN 30, 2015
Bottle from Seoul Plaza. Hazy deep golden colour. Quickly disappearing head. Aroma mostly yeasty, not much else going on. The same can be said about taste, there is some zesty citrusy fruitiness, but quite light and the rest is all yeast, kind of like in a young beer. Not bad, easily drinkable and even somewhat tasty, but nothing special.

Pale yellow close to white looking beer... Well, more a soda than a beer, cause that doesen’t taste like beer. Watery. Refreshing

massingasetta (419) - München, GERMANY - JUN 27, 2015
An interesting mix green tea and beer. A bit like a radler, but somewhat more smooth as the herbal notes of beer mix well with the tea. Godd alternative to a shandi or radler.

jamaty (1242) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 5, 2015
Amarilla anaranjada, turbia y con abundante espuma blanca. Aroma plano, ligeramente herbal. Aguada en boca, con escaso sabor como a caramelo de miel/limon. Dicen que lleva té verde. Es un invento friki. Si te pilla de primeras y bien fría te la tomas. Pero no vale mucho.

PapaVillum (659) - Valby, DENMARK - JUN 3, 2015
33 cl, flaske, 4,5 % ABV, BB: 15/11/15, købt i Asian Market på Østerbro, 3. juni 2015. Gylden, økologisk og ufiltreret Spice/Herb/Vegetable med stor flot hvid tætskummende krone på 4-5 cm. Denne svinder langsomt, først til snelandskab og senere gardiner samt knap 3 mm. Meget perlende i glasset. Øllet står i beskrivelsen på ratebeer opskrevet som belgisk, mens Holland og byen Den Bosch er oplyst som Iki Beer's hjemsted ifølge informationerne på flasken (?!). Let syrlig og endnu lettere sødlig aroma af grøn te. Humlearoma af blomster og citrus. Efter "åbningstiden" er der krydret af koriander. Smagen er let krydret og sødlig med minimal bitterhed. En anelse syrlighed. Opsummering: let mild sødme og let bitter. Let krop med middel karbonering, og konsistensen er tynd. Eftersmagen er fin, let bitter og medium lang. Fin, frisk sommerøl til terrassen og meget let drikkelig.

Pinball (11408) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 1, 2015
bottle from el corte ingles palma mallorca. cloudy yellow, white head. very mild aroma, i don’t get any tea. faint note of malts thouh. flavor is or seems to be pretty straight lager, with a little bit of herbal tea added. flavor is in fact pretty good, well brewed, and quenching. You have the dryness you’d expect from an european lager of some quality, and then a delicate sweet herbal note from tea. even if i try i can not taste any yuzu in here. perhaps i don’t know the fruit well enough.
