Ljunkan (530) - NORWAY - MAY 3, 2009
Bottle from Systembolaget, Karlstad.
Pours a cloudy yellow/orange color with a mediumsized white head. Aroma is nice; spicy/yeasty and fruity with notes of banana and citrus. Fresh, unusal and exciting. Flavour is spicy, there’s notes of grassy hops, citrus, apricot and some light banana. Almost a bit perfumey, but not in a disturbing way. Well hidden alcohol with a slightly bitter finish. Medium to full body with a rather oily mouthfeel, carbonation is maybe a bit lively. Gets better and better after a while in the glass, and it’s dangerously drinkable exactly as Aventinus. I think the latter one is slightly better though, even though I haven’t had it since March last year or so. Well made stuff.

FatPhil (12719) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 1, 2009
UPDATED: FEB 27, 2011 500ml bottle (Janoinen Lohi, Helsinki) (7-:4:7-:3:12=3.3--)
Rich toffee/caramel colour, small head. Sweet caramel and banana aroma from Schneider. Tons of nettles from Brooklyn. Perfumey palate, but also nettles retronasally. Quite alcoholic, but also perfumey in the taste. Still rather nettley. Not as good as Aventinus. Had a sip from someone else’s glass too - that was soapy and tasted of disinfectant - not good (so docking 1 point overall).
Rerate: 500ml bottle (Alko) as Tap 5 - shared by Jari - thanks!
7 Massively hoppy aroma, sharp and fruity, reminded
4 Turbid toffee, almost sahti-like.
7 Sweet and fruity, plenty of bananas there, loads of bitter hops.
4 Full and smooth. Lovely bitter hoppy finish. A touch perfumey and soapy
14+ Wonderful balance, bitternesss huge, but nettles kept in check. Alcohol nowhere to be seen. Way way better than the Brooklyn one, IMHO.

[2016-20090222] 500mL bottle. Lovely hoppy citrus aroma. Murky, light brown orange body with a long-lasting foamy white head and lots of floaties. Toasted yeast flavour has citrus lemon hops throughout. Medium body is a little bitter. Nice aroma.

altonbrownd (5098) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - APR 24, 2009
On tap at Wildeman. Wow. Another excellent team-up of two choice brewers. Grapefruit-colour body with thick head. Taste of wheat, hops, rice and sweet fruits. Quite nice and I could recognize both brewers in the flavours and texture. ABV is very high and very well-hidden. Goes down very well.

Ober (2813) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - APR 21, 2009
A very hazy golden colored beer, with a thick foamy white head. A very strong aroma of hop bitters with sweets of wheat and fruits. like banana’s with citrus. The taste is hop bitter with the sweets of a German Weisse. These taste are having a battle. In the aftertaste the bitterness of the American hops is predominating.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 20, 2009
Sampled draught at Bishops Arms Folkungagatan, Stockholm. Pours out in a cloudy dark golden colour with a rich, sticky white foam. Fresh, fruity and fragrant aroma of spicy and floral noble hops, yeast, cloves, cookies, mild lemon and apricots. Medium to full-bodied with notes of yeast, cloves, oranges, apricots, fresh grassy and spicy hops with touches of dough and crackers. Long medium-bitter and hop aromatic finish of orange-peels, grass, mandarin, yeast and spices.

crowderm (382) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 18, 2009
Awesome looking pour, cloudy amber body with a big soapy head. The aroma is stunning. This has got to be the best smelling beer I’ve ever enjoyed...its the standard wheaty/banana goodness of a hefe, meets a bizarre, but wonderful citric/spiced cider fruitiness. Wow. Ok, the flavor is pretty good too - something like a toned down version of the aroma. Many of the standard hefe notes are present, the tropical/citrus hop flavors really add an extra kick. Medium bodied, relatively dry, and pretty refreshing for such a big beer. Mild alcohol warmth late in the finish. This beer rules...I would like to see a lot more hopped up hefes after drinking this thing.

sayravai (4706) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 17, 2009
(Bottled) Opaque orange with a small, lightly lacy and partly lasting head. Very pleasant, exotic-fruity, citric-aromatic-hoppy nose with peppery-coriandery spiciness, and a touch of alcohol. The neutral flavor is wheaty-malty with orange-peel-fruitiness, but also some dull-ashy touches. Medium to full, slicky body with soft carbonation. Definitely an interesting hybrid, but unfortunately the somewhat dull flavor is no match for the great, hoppy aroma.

mike_77 (4780) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - APR 15, 2009
Dark, hazy, orange colour. Sweet citrusy aroma with strong hints of orange oil. Light texture, sweet on the tongue with lots of orange coming through which pairs well with the bitter (but fresh) hop finish.
