KimJohansen (10347) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - AUG 28, 2009
Clear golden with a tiny head. Sweet malty aroma with caramel and wheat and mild hoppy notee. Flavour was sweet and wheaty with hops, lemons and malty notes. Finished mild bitter.

phaleslu (7419) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 28, 2009
12 oz. bottle from Baba Budanís in Cincinnati. Pours clear gold with virtually no head, and the little there is vanishes quickly. Weak aroma with notes of hops, wheat, fruit, and sugar. Flavor is also disappointingly weak, with a little each of wheat, citrus, and hops. Light body and very smooth, medium carbonation. Crisp, quick finish. Very easy to drink but underwhelming in every way. Southern Tier can do so much better than this.

TBone (13848) - Pori, FINLAND - SEP 12, 2009
Bottled (Konttori, Tre).
Slightly hazy orange color, small white head. Honeyish malty aroma, some orange peel and wheat. Flavor is sweetish malty, spelt wheaty, grainy. Short grainy aftertaste. Not very exiciting: aroma was ok but taste is not very good.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 13, 2009
Dark yellow colored with cloudy appearance. Little white head. Lemony hopped aroma with thin wheaty note. Thin to medium bodied, carbonated palate. Flavor is similar with lemon and sour bite, hops last in aftertaste with some soapy tangy dryness.

madsberg (10684) - SÝborg, DENMARK - DEC 23, 2009
Bottled. Golden coloured. Unclear. Light white fluffy head. Aroma of grape, fruits and vet veggies. flavour of grape, fruits, light spice and sterin. Quite thin bodied. Fruity and sweet end.

FatPhil (10724) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 21, 2010
Keg (Pikkulintu, Helsinki)
Pale orange, tiny head. Vaguely beery aroma, light fruitiness I guess. Crisp carbonation. Slight hint of freezer ice and nettles. Very dull, and the carbonation detracts from the experience. Drinkable. The simple grains were nice.

BREWMUSKCLES (2368) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 3, 2010
uninspiring. not offensive just almost medium in body with a somewhat bitter finish, with a taste a bit like vegetable and hardly anything else. perhaps a bit of black tea. some hop in the bitterness and soft i suppose for the style it is pretty good but still the very description fortells one " lack of flavor". a paradox

SSSteve (3934) - - MAY 21, 2010
12oz bottle. slightly hazy pale gold under a small white head. light, pale aroma with hints of honey and pear. flavor is mostly cereal grains and honey flavors. hints of light bittering hops. doesnít even come close to the greatness of "Hop Sun" IMO but still a good sessionable drink.

slowrunner77 (6925) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 6, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2014 sawingandamiss for southern tier. thatís a first. uninspired muddled malts, wheat, and a touch of hops on the nose and in the flavor. not what iíd reach for as a wheat, or a hoppy beer. easily their weekest.
