Both looks and smells like a white wine. pale yellow with buttery-passionfruit aroma. Very much a beer when you taste it though. Full of NZ passionfruit hop. slightly thin in the mouth.

Bottle: Old school danish ØL-bottle, wonder where they get them from... The beer is about as colorless as beer can be, not much head. Slight corn on the nose but very clean, some passionfruity hops. Clean flavor, malt, passionfruit. crisip medium bodied. prettty good pilsner

Out of the keg at the brewery. Golden body with a receeding head. Smells of malt, fruit and then the nice hoppiness that hits just right! Overall, a very nice beer.

Bottle at Minibar, Queenstown. Pours golden with a medium white head that diminished. Aroma of malt, caramel and floral notes. The flavour is caramel malt, fruit and honey. Smooth and crisp mouthfeel with light bitterness in the finish.

snuffla (156) - Chch, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 16, 2009
Very pale gold. Clean rich, maybe slighty floral/honey taste for my money. Very good either way in the middle then a nice balanced clean hop finish. All in all a great beer. Shame its not more widely available

Ungstrup (30476) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 9, 2009
Bottled. A hazy light yellow beer with a thin white head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of citrus and vitamins. The body is thin. Thanks Papsoe for bringing this home and sharing.

Demise (57) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 19, 2009
Pours a very clear, pale golden with a white head which does not last long. Caramel and clean citrus hop on the nose. The smooth caramel and vanilla flavours are follwed by a sudden hop bitterness, which is then balanced by a sweet malt flavour. A very smooth beer with a beautiful aftertast of toffe and malt. Lovely to drink and surprisingly good.

A somewhat nutty flavour dominated the beer for me, different for a pilsener but makes it less one dimensional.. Some nice hops and bitterness there as well. Perhaps a bit stronger hop flavour would have made this a more standout beer, but quite unique for a pilsener.

skortila (4829) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - MAY 13, 2008
Bottled. Thnx to Noize. Very strong flowery and fresh hoppy aroma. First impression was it had to be perfumed, but I don’t think so after finishing. Hazy, golden coloured with a white head. Taste is slightly sweet, mild bitterness. It has floral and citric hops. Very fresh beer, top beer in the style.
