Bottled. Slightly hazy yellowish golden colour. Aroma is big time citrus, some grass, nectar and some slight bready notes. Flavour is bready, nectary, some citrus as well as some slightly hayish notes. A bit thin, but otherwise quite nice considering the abv.

Cybercat (3307) - Georgia, USA - AUG 19, 2013
Pours a clear solar yellow with a thick, fluffy, white head. Aroma is wheaty with a varnish-like overtone. Hmmmm? Wheaty flavor is rather watery, unfortunately like a lot of "lite" beers. Texture, though, doesn’t seem watery, though it is average. OK, had to try it, but definitely not Mikkeller’s best.

Bottle in Iowa City. Thanks to adnielsen for sharing. Pours a hazy golden color with white head. Wheat, cracker, spicy aromas. Interesting beer. Starts out like a full beer with wheat and spicy flavors, but the body disappears at the back end. Very nice take on a low abv beer.

adnielsen (9077) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 14, 2013
Bottle @ Holiday Inn Iowa City picked up @ John’s Grocery. Pours a clear golden appearance with a bit white head. A bit spicy, dull grapefruity, cracker, a touch citrusy aroma. A touch tangy, dry bready, cracker, lightly citrusy, a touch spicy flavor. Not sure if this is really two years old but fuck man, sure doesn’t taste like it. Picked it up to tick one of the world’s highest rated low abv beers but this wasn’t bad.

Koskela (289) - Marysville, California, USA - JUN 12, 2013
Sweet malty gingerie aroma with a lotta white head and a cloudy medium yellow color. Bitter Sour with ginger and tart mineraly. Lit bodied and not so good... It almost has a sour fruit flavor or maybe the skin of a fruit.

douglas88 (6018) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 19, 2013
12 ounce bottle. Pours a mostly clear golden color with a large white head. A sweet nose of soap and marmalade. Sweet peppery and soapy flavor, some rich oranges, bready. Very nice especially for the ABV. The body is nice. Finishes clean with earthy wheat and more soap.

12oz bottle pours light gold with large white head. Citrus aroma. Very light beer taste a bit of citrus.

BVery (6222) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - JAN 13, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Bottle. Pale hazy gold pour with a monster fluffy white head. Lots of citrus and grassy hops. Well over a year old and it’s held up remarkably well! Very nice summer brew.

Imaena (1823) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 9, 2013
Bottle. The smell of this beer is incredible. The pour leaves a blanket of thick white head and a hazy straw colored beer. Of course the body and flavor are different on account of the low alcohol - but its a great brew and I will bust it out again sometime.

Prufrockstar (957) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 6, 2013
Pours hazy straw-colored light gold. Big white fluffy head, decent retention. Aroma of citrus, hay, grass. Taste is ... weak. Dry, very little sweetness or bitterness. Thin body, moderate-high carbonation, crisp clean dry finish. Overall: nice and refreshing. Smells more enticing than it tastes/feels, but understandable for the alcohol. Not bad, but also doesn't really excite me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
