Strykzone (4933) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - NOV 17, 2011
Sampled at an esbls tasting. I brought this one. Very hazy orange gold with a decent even layer of white foam. The nose is apples and yeast with light fruit. Not a lot of flavor. Wheat, and apples are prominent. Alcohil is tasted but is not over bearing and bitterness is mild. Carbonation is significant. This needs more going on.

Bamsen78 (3142) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - NOV 2, 2013
Bottle. Pours hazy yellow with airy but stable white head. Clear aroma of yeast, hops, malt and banana. Sweet flavour of malt, banana, caramel, and alcohol. Fruity and floral notes towards the finish, which is rather bitter. High carbonation. OK but a rather boozy thing.

Defreni (2601) - Husum, DENMARK - DEC 19, 2013
Flaske: Lysegul helt diset øl med et stort skumhoved. Meget frugtet duft primært fra gæren, Smagen er tydelig wit men igen med en kæmpestor frugt smag. God bitterhed gør frugten bærbar, men det er lidt for meget i længden.

BMan1113VR (7858) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 5, 2011
Bottle (odd looking). Pours with a hazy golden hue and a somewhat quick to fade white head. Aromas are extremely floral, rose water, potpourri, estery, phenol, alcohol, grainy. Flavors are of clove, phenol, ester, alcohol, bready. A bit sweet. Floral. Finishes with an odd, nearly cedar like note. Strange beer. Medium carbonation. Alcohol makes it a touch flabby.
