2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sample at the Eurostash tasting on 04/30/09: Bottle from the brewpub. This beer is a hazy orange color with a medium thin and creamy white head that dissipates steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Tart fruit aroma with bits of earthy malt. Medium body with flavors of nearly sour fruit, pale malt and a metallic tinge. The finish is tart fruit that lingers awhile. Considering this is a Vienna I am assuming the bottle was past its prime. Will have to revisit at some point.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled at Dogbrick’s Eurostash tasting on 4.30.09. Cloudy amber pour with a medium beige head. Tart aroma with yeast, malt and metal. Crisp and sour flavor with a bit of fruit. Judging by the other ratings I’m guessing this shouldn’t have a sour flavor, but hell, it didn’t taste bad. They should change the name to "wild lager" on the bad bottles and charge five times as much for them.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Huge offwhite lasting head. Amber body. Aroma of dried fruit and malts with milky caramel notes. Hard to work out against a background of cigarette smoke, but think I did it. Dry-sweetish honey and dried fruit taste with resiny straw and earth notes. Soft, mild mouthfeel. Fullish body. Dry wooden resiny grassy aftertaste with chalky notes. Grassy caramel taste lingers for a long time. Excellent! (0.33l bottle at U Medviku.)

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. A hazy golden-amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet malty combined with notes of fruit - especially citrus fruits. The flavor is sweet malty combined with citrus notes, leading to a dry finish where a thin note of citrus lingers. Thanks KimJohansen for sharing.

Bottle, 5.2% at the brewpub. Almost clear amber colour. Small semi-stable light brown head. The flavour is quite sweet. Very caramelly, like a sort of homebrew note. The bitterness kicks in late, along with a spicy and sweet hoppiness.
