Palme (4857) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 24, 2013
0.5l bottle. This is a crystal clear golden one with a small quickly islandy and sidesticking bubbly white top. It smalls quite nice this. Inviting, hoppy and slightly fruity. Traces of caramel and a strong present citrus aroma. Also some faint diacetyl hints when it’s heated a bit. Not bad at all actually. It’s thin watery on the mouthfeel and the carbonation level is about average. In the taste it’s not as fruity, but the citrus is present. Almost lime-like with a clear slightly pungent floral touch. Without having had to much of the elderflowers in my mouth before I actually recognize this flavor. Quite dry and light grassy bitter in the finish finish. Well, it is what it is, but the aroma wasn’t all that bad. Probably the best I’ve had from these guys, 18.02.2013

On bottle from Meny Løren. Golden color, good foam. Good well integrated hoppy aromas, good fruitiness,soe citrus. Light body & medium complexity. Good bitterness- well balanced. Very Enjoyable

Golden ale with high wheat content, flavoured with elderflower, clearly trying to mimic continental weissbeers, but the balance isn’t quite right. It looks and smells fine but it is a bit thin on the palate with a slightly bitter aftertaste.

500ml bottle - a clear golden (almost lager-like appearance) with a white head, Faint nose of hops and grass, a bit of carbonation and a bitter after taste. Okay.

kiwianer (3428) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 12, 2012
The head is ok. It smells, malty. The first taste is a bit citrus, then it is low aromatic, but a bit malty. Could be more flavour 11/10/9/9/12/9

WeissGary (290) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - JUL 6, 2012
I wasnt too wild for this one, quite a strong citrus aroma, soft tasting but quite bitter, dry and all round rough experience... This is a good brewery but this particular beer is one I am not keen on from them.

Nilz (524) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAY 12, 2012
A clear pale yellow with a decent head that lasts. The aroma is a fresh floral hops. Tastes are a light dry bitterness with some sweet maltness.Rather pleasant as a session ale.

jamestulloch (4421) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 13, 2012
Aroma: Fresh lemon and grapefruit. Grassy scent.

Appearance: Clear golden body. Small, lasting white head. Very lively carbonation. Slight lacing.

Taste: Very sharp, citrusy taste. Dry, woody finish.

Palate: Light, watery texture. Fizzy carbonation.

Overall: Ugly packaging, beautiful beer. Crisp, light and refreshing.
