Luneylane (233) - Taipei City, TAIWAN - NOV 7, 2017
A bottle from Jason's near NCCU, drunk at home. Aroma: not much, rather sour. Appearance: hazy orangeade, no head to speak of. Palate: light-bodied, rather thin, average carbonation, not much doing at the finish. Taste: lightly sweet. An impressive list of adjuncts, which however tastes like cheap chewing gum. One's more than enough.

UPDATED: NOV 6, 2017 Bottle unfortunately expired, pours from the bottle murky gold with visible fizz and quickly dispersing white head, sourish aroma (might be because it's expired, smooth drinking, sweet, notes of honey, herbal finish

330ml bottle at home. First one got stole, so had to go back for a replacement. And glad I did this is good. Pour is hazy yellow with a frothy white head. Nice witbier nose with spices and fruit (oranges). A little more hops to it than some others - citrus peel, grass. Crisp, zesty finish. Nice.

(bottle) hazy golden colour with a frothy white head. strange aroma of green bell peppers, brown sugar and lime juice, slightly perfumed, with a touch of sourdough and thyme. flavour is mostly pale malts and stale black tea, rather leafy, with some more lemons, pizza dough, mouldy peaches and a semi-dry finish. medium-bodied with lively carbonation. just ok.

sarauckelman (550) - Durham, Durham, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2017
Cloudy lemon yellow with no head and a lot of particulate matter. Strong aroma of something I couldn't place, similarly strong flavor. And then my husband said "I can really taste the nutmeg" and I was like Ohhhh, yeah, that's definitely nutmeg. It's all you can taste, and it leaves a tingle in the mouth. It's an interesting beer.

Alebarasi (162) - Dobrova, SLOVENIA - SEP 13, 2017
Hazy golden yellow color with a short lasting white head and a lot of yeast particles. Medium body, soft carbonation, no lacing. Floral aroma of citruses and their zest, coriander, honey, wheat, lychee, tropical fruits, bubblegum, yeast and cider-like aromas. Kind of a bland taste of oranges, sparkling wine, wheat, straw and herbs. Notable tartness. A bit watery - soda-alike brew. Easily drinkable and refreshing.

p0urmeac0ld0ne (208) - Merthyr Tydfil, WALES - AUG 22, 2017
intense, weird, experimental white beer. floral, fruity, almost perfumy on the nose, and a bizarre light citrus zing on the palate. texture is unusual and the taste is far more complex than i can construe using the descriptors available here lol. piles of belgian-looking yeast floating around which is almost impossible not to disturb. good luck not getting it in the glass! bizarre drink, glad i tried it, unsure if i would buy another but would be interested in seeing a draught version.
