3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Supposed to be 2005 bottle) at Kulminator, best before October 2009, so maybe more recent. Hazy golden with a beautifully dense offwhite head. Grainy aroma with quite a bit of coriander. Malty flavours with coriander overdose. Still a bit sweet. Very fizzy. A good enough blond.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, bought @ Skjold Burne, Aarhus.
Pours pale yellow with a great, staying, medium, creamy, white head. Looks great. Mild fruity aroma, some overripe bananas, apples and oranges. Light vanilla and coriander notes. High carbonation, okay mouthfeel. Flavour is a bit vinious, lots of nice, fruity zestiness. Apples, oranges dominate, but pineapple, mango and banana creep in as well. Light yeasty finish. Even though these elements combine well, it still is a bit too strong and just a bit ill-composed.
