Grumbo (2948) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - JUN 4, 2016
Catching up on my Danish ratings ahead of a visit. Had this one some years ago, a 750ml bottle from one of the big supermarkets in uk. Poured a hazy dark yellow colour with a soon dissipating white head. Aroma of citrus, orange and wheat. Medium sweetness and bitterness, light sourness. I quite enjoyed this at the time and had a few bottles before they stopped stocking it. RexTalionis (3763) - FINLAND - MAY 27, 2013

75 cl bottle.BlackHaddock (7346) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2012
Originally rated on 20090801.
Pours golden color with small head. Aroma of grass, yeast and some hops. Flavor of wheat, hay, yeast and spices.
Brown 75cl bottle, best before 22 Dec 2007, drank in the company of Chad (AWolfAtTheDoor), my first ever BA houseguest. The beer was almost 2 weeks ’out of date’.
I poured the beer in one go, but into three glasses, the beer getting cloudier with each glass, the third glass getting all the sediment from the bottle base, I took that glass.
My Corsendonk tulip glass had a pale lemon/yellow heavily clouded beer with a very small white head that left straight away, as it did on the other two glasses I had poured.
The aroma was all apple and yeast, my wife thought I had given her a cider until she had a sip. As the beer warmed a sweeter toffee apple smell took over from the cooking apple style smell at the begining.
The beer was lively, spritzy and tangy. The flavours were of lemon and grapefruit, refreshing more than tart or cheek suckingly sour.
There was some staying power within the mouthfeel and nothing nasty turned up to ruin the aftertaste.
Not bad at all, different but not a bad beer. A hot summers day drink, not an English dark winters evening beer, which is when I tried it.

330 ml bottle @ home. Rated @ 24.9.2009.
Pours a slightly hazy yellow colour. Witbier-like on the nose with citrus, wheat and mild spices. Same elements on the flavour too where the citrus comes through a bit more. Notes of flowers. Light bodied, watery mouthfeel and decent carbonation. Refreshing.
