In short: A wild, crisp, refreshing, tart and bitter yellow beer. Wonderful session beer of high complexity.
How: Bottle 22oz, consumed relatively fresh one month after purchase.
The look: Cloudy bright yellow body topped by a large white head.
In long: Nose has a very clean bright funk, lemongrass, flower petals, dry grass. Taste is lemongrass, super clean and bright frunk, Rice Crispy cakes, lemon zest, a lot of sun dried yellowed grass, a little spicy twist in the grassy hops, more... A refreshing tartness and a bone-dry finish accompanied by a solid dry grassy bitterness. Body does not feel slim despite the below 5% and the active carbonation increases the already high drinkability. Overall the beer comes through as some kind of cross between a bohemian pilsner, a dry rustic Saison and a tart funky brett ale. I thought this was a wonderful beer. A highly sessionnable beer that is a lot more than just easy to drink and refreshing, it is also quite complex and very stimulating. This beer is simply mindblowing, trust me on this, I’m not someone who exaggerates things, I’ve only exaggerated once in my entire life and this was more than 60 years ago.

ansermadide (1521) - Kyle, Texas, USA - JUN 15, 2013
Bright, bold yellow, wit/farmhouse-like in appearance and cloudy with a bubbly, bright white head. The aroma is a little dry, with a touch of sweetness that seems to be coming from what can easily be confused with wheat. THis is definitely a farmhouse beer, and fortunately a very pleasant one. There’s a candy-like quality to it that makes it very pleasing. Thin in the mouth, and very interesting... the grain bill is certainly odd, but they pulled it off very well. It’s calm, smooth, and pretty nice for what it is. You don’t normally think that you’d enjoy such an adjuncty beer as this, but use some Bret and turn it farmhouse and you have a legit beer!

yngwie (13616) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 14, 2013
Bottle, 22oz. A fluffy white head forms over an unclear, yellow-golden body. Lacings. Peppery, brett aroma with quite a lot of fruityness. A bit simple maybe, but damn tasteful, and oh so quenching. It’s dry and well carbonated, medium bodied. Fruity flavor with the brett quite evident. Bitterness both initially and in the end. Certainly an easy drinkable and very pleasant beer that I’d like to see available in my local supermarket. 130614

Suttree (5148) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 13, 2013
First of all, I hate that font. I had to look up the contract brewer to figure out what this actually is. I mean, look at it. Can you make out the word "Premium"? I lookin’ at it and I see "Breminus" or "Dreininuz", but not "Premium". Geez, I’m all for cool labels and whatnot, but c’mon. At any rate, I liked the beer. Very pale yellow, decent head. Smells very yeasty and flowery. Very soft palate. Very quenching. Lots of floral, spicy flavors, with a subtle, peppery hop bite in the finish. I liked it.

daje (2450) - NORWAY - JUN 9, 2013
Bottle from Ølhandleriet at Mathallen, shared march 23rd 2013. Cloudy yellow with a massive head. Gusher bottle. Aroma is funky with lemon, barnyard, leather and berries. Excellent taste follows with a spicy and funky yeast character, lots of grapefruit, almost like a juice, and a crisp malt presence carrying it all. High drinkability for me and it’s so great to see something different at this strength in norwegian stores. Instant hit.

glennmastrange (2272) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JUN 6, 2013
Bottle. Moderate aromas all around, with grain and straw for the malt, grass and lime for the hops, barnyard and earth for the yeast, with green apple and pepper in the background. Head is large, fizzy, white with good crusty lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is hazy but muddy on the last pour, pastel yellow. Flavor starts moderately acidic and lightly bitter, then finishes moderately acidic and bitter. Palate is light to medium, watery with a fizzy carbonation and finishes very dry. The opaque, sickly bile-like color is a turnoff, but the enticing aroma and the refreshing flavor is enough to say this Corn and Rice Beer is a do it again beer.
