3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can shared in Copenhagen - thanks to Juhamatti for the trade! Pours hazy gold with a creamy, white head. The nose holds some light, citrusy hops and bready pale malts. Light sweet flavor with mild citrus pith, more bready pale malts, light straw, tangerine. Light bodied with average carbonation, nicely balanced on the finish, a touch weighted towards the pale malts versus the hops, but still some nice citrus hop elements. Not especially bitter. Very drinkable stuff.

1.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 4/20
Many thanks to Rosenbergh for this can! Golden in the glass, very floral in the nose with hints of malt. The beer starts smooth, dry, but nor very floral or full at all. Quite disappointing. The mainpart is smooth, bitter-dry, a bit floral, but quite boring-neutral. The aftertaste is bitter-malty, slightly metallic. Not that great, slightly sweet.
Disappointing for that great smell! --> 4/12/5/4

1.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Unfortunately stale, gone. Must be an old can, because the life is just gone. The nose was really nice, with some good American hop tones upon smelling, even holds some foam. But it's stale and old. Suspecting unfiltered, as it's a very unclear beer -- normally fine by me -- but also maybe the reason it turned in that cool can faster than I could get to it. Disappointed, but should try a fresh sample sometime.
Looked again at the can ... is over a year past expiration date.

Thanks erzengel! Pours a hazy apricot with a large committed head. The smell is big fruity hops, stale malt lingers underneath the hops though. The taste is tangy stale overall with the fruity hops mixing in....unfortunate really. Light+ body with decent carbonation.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can, 20/04/14. Pours orange with a good-sized, off-white head. Aroma is slightly weizen-yeasty, peach and orange. Tate is dry, somewhat bitter. Citrus - lemon and its peel. A bit lightly all. Somewhat grainy body. Light but the strong carbonation masks it well. Alright.
