MichaelAwesome (5287) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - FEB 5, 2015
Weizen und Hopfen gemischt ein wenig Kotze und Säure, die jedoch nicht wie eine Himbeere anmutet, sondern wie etwas zu lange gestandene Milch. Süffigkeit ist ok, trinkbar ist es eigentlich auch, aber einige Aromen sind in gewissen Moment etwas unangebracht und mehr als unausgewogen.

McTapps (5319) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - FEB 5, 2015
Bottle from Meilby - many thanks! The beer has got a clear golden-amber colour with a big, big steady head (like beaten egg white) and medium body. Aroma of bread, hops and barley. Taste of mild hops, bread, mild citrus fruits, vanilla, flowers and biscuits. Easy drinkable with a well-balanced bitter finish. Nice one.

Foggy orange with small head. Aroma is hoppy bitter, malty, fruits. Taste is bitter with crisp co2, rather fresh really. Not my favorite style but okay and refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Troebele geeloranje kleur met een volle blijvende kraag. Ruikt fruitig, banaan, citrus. Beetje weissbier achtig. Smaakt bitterzoet, fruitig, hop, citrus, banaan. Wel een goede bittere afdronk.

Lett uklar farge. Lite hint av karamell i duften. Lett og kort smak. Kjedelig helhetsinntrykk.
