fonefan (33333) - VestJylland, DENMARK - APR 2, 2007
Bottle. Cloudy medium yellow color with a average fizzy fair lacing white head. Aroma is moderate hoppy, elderflowers. Flavor is moderate sweet and acidic, light bitter with a average duration. Body is light to medium, texture is watery, carbonation is soft. A light and refreshing beer.

yespr (29691) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - FEB 16, 2007
33 cL bottle. Pours unclear yellow with no head. Low on carbonation. Distinct sweet elderflower aroma which also dominates the taste - almost a freshly pressed juicy cider wiyth some sourness. Interesting encounter is the spelt corn which adds some wheat like notes but different. Fruity sour finish.

Ungstrup (28458) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 15, 2003
An unclear orange beer with no head. The aroma sweet and fruity with a strong elderflower note. The flavor is flat, acidic with strong notes of elderflower. A very refreshing beer - OK, but not fantastic.

Papsoe (25094) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 14, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) Pretty amber with a fizzy head that cannot wait to get out of the bottle - collapses quickly though. The elderflower extract is present but not overwhelming. Weak wheaty notes (spelt actually).
This was developed by the father and son owners of Ørbæk (Nils and Nicolai Rømer) when they’d sacked their brewmaster. So it’s not that bad considering it’s been developed with no real brewing experience. 290903

oh6gdx (20003) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 1, 2005
Bottled. Hazy yellow colour, white creamy head. Flowery and citric aroma. Very sweet flowery fruity flavour. Almost too sweet, but the more you drink the more pleasant it gets. Dry fruitish aftertaste.

Hazy yellow colour with a white head. Sweet fruity aroma dominated by elderflower, with notes of citrus. Acidic flavour dominated by elderflower with a slightly bitter finish. Nice on a warm day.

Draught
Cloudy blond color. Evident elderflower aroma, leaning on the fruity side. Not interesting taste and simple palate.
