Bottle, bought @ Randers Vinhus.
Pours hazy yellow with a small, frothy, white head. Aroma has citrus, pine and grapefruit on top of light maltiness. Highish carbonation, fine creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has very mild sweet wheat with some good, fruity and piney hops. Light dryness in the finish. Okay and rather fresh beer.

Christian (11131) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 16, 2009
Hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma of grainy malt, with some sulphur notes. Thin malty flavour, with more of that cabbage-like sulphur hitting me. Nice and bitter finish though.

Leighton (11122) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 12, 2009
Pours a light gold with just a hint of haze. The nose floral and wheaty, with notes of lavender and vanilla. The first taste has some mild vanilla. As others have mentioned, this beer seems a little off-balanced. Not bad but I would opt for other brews.
