onystrom (1321) - Magellan Hunter! - Skanderborg, DENMARK - MAR 19, 2008
Hazy golden color with fine head. Very nice aroma but the flavor is a bit disappointing. Too much carbonation and some biiterness.

Maria (10187) - Thisted, DENMARK - FEB 2, 2008
Light straw with a huge, nice and white head. The aroma has sweetness and notes of coriander and citrus. The same goes for the flavour, and the body is quite full. Easy to drink and quite pleasant. 2556

Rastacouere (6148) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 2, 2007
Big spritzy white head gets fed by very strong carbonation. The body is of a cloudy golden colour. Wheaty and grainy aroma erupts from the coriander soup. Very soft on the palate, but also quite bland and stale, cheesy and dishwater reminiscent in its spicy, soapy lack of evolution.

KnutAlbert (6312) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 4, 2007
Bottle, RBESG 07. Soft and round, a fairly typical wit. A little citrus, a little soapiness.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 5, 2009 A Sim rate (RBESG tasting): Smells of meat to me. Very slightly citric and VERY wheaty. The flavour is also wheaty, with all the grains very pronounced. The palate is quite full and impressive.

A Mes rate. Bottle at home.
No idea where this one popped up from and part of me wishes it had stayed wherever it was. A fruity, cardboardy white bier. Very pale yellow. Shite. Drain pour.
