Bottle, thanks Hirigalzkar!
Pours orange golden with a small white head.
Lots of oranges, sweet but mainly bitter. Still balanced despite the bitterness and 3.5%

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours golden/orange/yellow... [I can’t really decide what to call it :-) ] with a soon disappearing white head. Sweet hoppy aroma with notes of gooseberries, pineapple and citrus. Taste is very hoppy, citrusy, with a crisp grapefruit bitterness in the finish. The aftertaste has got some kind of strange floural and metallic notes that also adds some sort of dryness. It’s also herbal. A bit thin, which is not entirely bad thing in this case, cause it adds some lightness and drinkability. A litte too carbonated for my taste. Overall: The hops dominates this, rather good, folköl from start to finish. Very promising debut beer from this brewer!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle. Thanks to SaintMatty) Golden amber colour, slightly hazy. Frothy off-white head. Fruity, hoppy nose with notes of tropical fruit, citrus, passion-fruit and hints of resin. Fruity, hoppy taste with tropical fruit, biscuity malt, citrus and generous amounts of floral, slightly resinous, hops in a finish with a fairly short bitterness. Rather thin body, quite dry. Nice and tasty. Very promising.

Clear golden color, fairly big lasting white head. Hoppy citrus scent, though mixed with rubber and sugar. Hoppy, bitter, mineral, sort of unbalanced taste. Hoppy citrus and bitter aftertaste. Spritzy mouthfeel, medium high bitterness. Lasting dry afterbitterness. Also notes of phenoles, mainly rubber and some plastic.

Slightly hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma of citrus, gooseberries and some grass. The same in the thin but quite refreshing taste. The finish was rather bitter. Descent stuff.

Bottle. Cloudy, orange/straw liquid with small to medium off-white head. Aroma of tangerines, tropical fruit, grapefruit, resin, sweet cereal and caramel malt. Taste is dry and light to medium bitter, but sadly quite bland taste. Light to medium bodied with OK carbonation. Good for a folköl.

UPDATED: OCT 9, 2013 The best "folköl" I’ve had (peoples beer, beer with 3.5% abv)
Appearence: Thin white head that dissipates quickly. Hazy golden colour.
Nose: Lemons, passion fruit, mango and green apples.
Taste: Citrus, grass, hay and a lingering bitterness.
Palate. Thin, but this is still a 3.5% abv beer.

For being a folköl, this one is superb.
It lives up to it’s name, it’s truly very hoppy indeed.
