UPDATED: JUL 4, 2008 Unclear dark brown with a lasting tan head. Toffee and roasted malt in the aroma with very little typical wheat yeast notes. Dry and malty flavour with rich toffee notes. This final version of a long time work in progress is easily the best.

Tap @ YNWA. This brew is insanely underrated. One of the best experimental brews I’ve had in quite some time. Missing it (sadly) at both previous beer festivals, YNWA in Kolding managed to get hold of one keg. After writing with the brewer, he told me that the beer I tasted was from the original batch, perhaps different because of aging, but no matter what, it was certainly stunning. It poured a muddy golden red with a brown hue to it. Head was stunning, creamy off-white and stayed there throughout an entire pint - and that even when most of it were stuck to the glass from top to bottom at the end :o). Aroma was very sweet with a definite wheatyness to it, but there were tones of fruit, raisins, plums and cherries. Mouthfeel is very creamy and round, gliding down easily. Flavours are very well balanced between wheaty sweetness and a softly warming alcohol backbone with a clear fruity sourness coming through it all. As a drank it, I sat thinking: "Is this the worlds first wheat lambic?". During the pleasure of drinking it, I found notes of cinnamon, smoked malts and plums. As a surprising afterthought the beer manages to hit me with a clear peppery bitterness that never seems out of place. As I started this review - one of the most underrated brews in Denmark - sadly only brewed once (and never on bottle).
