3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
At the brewery restaurant. Very cloudy with a massive head and quite effervescent. The aroma is yeasty with vanilla and a light lemon accent. Yeasty character, hint of lemon, touch of hop similar to regular Timi. Fairly refreshing for a nefiltrata.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at the brewery. Warm yellow cloudy with thick white head and an incredible liveliness--so many rising bubbles and fluffy head that lasts forever.
Aroma is super fresh with ample pale malts, nutty and clean, with no interfering esters. In fact, it barely smells yeasty.
The palate is yeastier but not cloying, and allows that nice pale malt character to shine
The finish is dry with a hint of pineapple
The overall is impressive, nourishing, balancing, and refreshing

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
19/08 Draught at Timisoreana brewery restaurant. It poured hazy yellow body with small head. Chalk, herbal and grainy aroma, acidic. Flavor is yeasty, typical for an unfiltered beer, while hay and grainy notes that are best felt in ordinary version, along with lemony notes are evident as well. Medium bodied, but had some short watery, chalky and lemony finish. Slightly sour. Not bad, they should pack it like this anyway.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft at brewery-restaurant with Heavy and Marko. This was a grower for all of us. Hazy banana-yellow. thin creamy head. Hazy smoked grain, cigarette nose. Juicy pineapple, hazy grain, corn. you can tell this isn’t a very good base beer. Odd ’unfiltered flavors’, not too much added.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: AUG 22, 2011 Draught at the brewery restaurant. This porued a murky, full yellow body, Slightly sickly husky nose, slightly acidic and yeasty. Soft yeasty taste, too bad the yeastiness isn’t all that great. One can see at first that there’s a crappy pale macro lager underneath. And yet... as it got warmer, interesting herbal notes started popping up near the end. I’d venture even notes of watermelon, propelling it from the initial 2.3, 2.4 to a 2.7. I completely didn’t mind it in the end and figured it was better than everything else we’d ordered at first (though Stejar Strong and Redd’s Fresh are hardly tough competition).
