yngwie (13945) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 8, 2014
Bottle, 375ml. A dense, finger-thick, light beige head forms over a hazy, dark golden body. Lacings. The aroma is lightly vinous, with some citrusy fruityness and oak. Citrusy, lightly sourish and citrusy flavor with white wine and an oak touch. Full body, dry and nicely carbonated. Lasting citrusy, lighlty vinous finish. Perhaps lacking a bit on complexity this one, but itís quite tasteful and pleasant anyway. 141108

Bottle 375ml @ Geokkjer
Pours slightly hazy deep golden with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, brett, white wine and some sourness. Taste is light to medium sweet and light sour with a long white wine and slightly dry finish. Body is medium, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is soft.

Lectvay (150) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 15, 2014
Smells funky but not unpleasantly so. Taste is a little astringent at first, then thick syrupy fruit, and a little medicinal. Hard beer to describe but really enjoyed it.

Nice reddish pour with a slightly pink head. Nice berry flavor with a tart finish. Very refreshing.

Alexanderdahl (11) - DENMARK - OCT 5, 2014
bottle. Pours clear and amber. Fresh, and with a very complex white wine nose to it. Absolutely amazing smell! Slightly sour, crisp white wine feel to it and a smooth, soothing hoppy finish. Very nice food beer!

Vestergaard (425) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - OCT 5, 2014
Pours dark amber with a big, white head. Aroma has lots of ripe, fruity notes. Very crisp fruits, with citrus, something bitter that is most likely this lychee. This was head to head with the original, and this has much less spices. A dry wooden oak here as well. Taste has acidic, citrussy fruits and ripe fruitís peel. Much more funky than the regular one. Medium carb and very well hidden alcohol.

Lukasmh (207) - Aarhus, DENMARK - OCT 5, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear orange and sparkling with regular tan head. Aroma has some funk, fruity, almost conserves-like sweet fruits. Also citrusy. Some grapes. Taste medium sweet and fruity, slight sour and some dry mouthfeel from the barrel.

Jaksmart (434) - Aarhus, DENMARK - OCT 5, 2014
Bottle. Clear amber, small tan head. Aroma is funky with a fruity mix of citrus, wet grass, pepper, a light oaky texture, raisins, some funky lacto-stuff, a darker berry-like substance, peach and a strange dry pineapple. Taste is more funky with a leathery base beneath a more dusty body of berry- and fruits. Also some cherry-like sweetness and a somewhat dry finish, where the white wine plays its primary role. Delicious.
