UPDATED: JAN 7, 2018 330ml bottle (Pien, Helsinki) (6:2:5:3:11=2.7)
Gusher - fuck that shit. Cloudy pale orange scummy head. Spicy Alvinne fingerprint to the aroma, funky, wheatish. Perfumey taste, sweet, light wheaty grains, floral, some funk, yeasty. Lightish palate, crisp carbonation. Finish pleasantly bitter but earthy, and a bit dirty with yeast. Something doesn't quite work. Apart from gravity failing to keep it in the bottle. Bad Newton, bad.

Borup (16055) - Albertslund, DENMARK - OCT 26, 2017
Sample at Beavertown Extravaganza 2017. A hazy yellow coloured beer with a white head. Aroma and flavour of fruit, citrus, hops, citrus and sourness.

LCI. Van de tap @Kaapse Brouwers. Licht-zurig, houttonen aanwezig, licht-fruitig. Fris bier, maar qua smaak niet uitgesproken

Troebel blond bier gebrouwen met de uit de natuur gehaalde morpheus gist waar Alvinne terecht trots op mag zijn. Lichtzure smaak (door de gist) die me een beetje aan Geuze doet denken. Het bier smaak naar gist, tarwe, kruiden, lichtbitter. Vrij uniek bier, best wel lekker.

UPDATED: SEP 20, 2017 Lett tåkete Gulbrun med høyt hvitt skum. Lukter korn , gjær, noe Floralsk og noe trevirke. Lett. Smaker samme som lukt, med søtlig karamell og frukt.

Lyst saison aktig øl med mye korn og friskt gress. Min første grisette var en lett og frisk opplevelse.

thellgren (1182) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 26, 2017
0.33 l bottle from K-Citymarket Ruoholahti, Helsinki. Appearance is golden, hazy and huge head. Taste has malts in a way similar to Czech lagers. Far in the end there is also something dry, probably from the hops and yeast. Taste is not really hoppy, but mellow. Easy to drink. If your throat is full of coal dust, you might not want to drink hoppy beers.

Zilverenmaan (336) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - AUG 18, 2017
Poors slightly hazy straw-yellow with medium but dense, lasting head. Aroma very inviting and clean: light apple-sourness, yeast. Taste apple-sour, yeasty, some sweetness with a lingering light astringent hoppy bitter aftertaste. Yeast residu reveals tropical fruits. Taste maybe a little thin but complex. Pleasant surprise for such a low abv.
