2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Clear golden yellow, 5mm white head. Aroma is massive on elderberries, but also some grassy notes, some tartness, and a wierd funky note, almost umami-like. Odd. This beer tastes like massively sugared elderberry juice with a bitter finish. Awful. Body is fairly light, finish is dry. Poured this one out.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: JUN 22, 2009 Botle. Pale yellow with nice medium white head. Aroma dominated by elderflowers and some pepper notes, a little overwhelming. Taste even more dominated by elderflowers and very sweet. This will be a nice summerbeer on a hot day and good considered the low ABV. I think Ørbæk uses the elderflowers a little better.

Bottle 50 cl. Clear yellow with a rough white head. Sweetish aroma of elderflower and malt. Medium body with some malts and sweet/tart elderflower accents with an edge of sulphur. Some hoppiness in the finish. A lot more beery than most other beer/fruit mixes. 270509

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Botella. Pale unclear yellow colour with a medium well lasting white creamish head leaving a good lacing. Soft rather mild aroma of elderflowers, citrus and bit of honey and fresh fruits. Good mouthfeel. The flavour is sweet with pleasant mildly bitter elderflowers, honey, citrus, fresh fruitiness and a mild soft pleasant bitterness. Dry mildly sweet honey and citrus finish. Pleasant and refreshing summer beer.
