Huge, very dense & fine just yellowish head, persistent and leaving fine lace over golden beer with orange highlights. Fruity, hot malts, gassy, garden weeds & herbs. Toasted malts, bit of caramel, tad sweet with a fine bitterish finish, and a CO² enhanced sourishness. Flowery, more garden herbs. Delicate but sure balance. Titillating, not fizzy; light to medium body. Excellent, light drinking ale - pity about the too discreet nose. Worth looking for! Skinnyviking (9720) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 10, 2007
Bottle. Lovely high lasting and creamy white head. Hazy yellow and thick looking body. Very sweet and fruity, astonishingly much banana like in a wheat beer. Flavor is fruity, lemon and oranges, and fresh with a good deal of carbonation. Short sweet aftertaste. gunnar (9697) - Sandnes, NORWAY - FEB 22, 2011

Svesse (8803) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - OCT 12, 2007
(Bottle) Golden colour with brief, frothy, white head. Fruity, floral nose with notes of lemon, citrus peel, jasmin, incense and honey. Fruity, floral taste with apricots, banana, pineapple, white bread and honey. Some sweetness, dut drier than expected. Delicate notes of spicy hops in the rather short finish. Fairly friendly and nice example of the style. Plovmand (8623) - Grindsted, DENMARK - MAR 12, 2010

Yellow and hazy, has a white head, mostly lasting. Aroma of fresh water, yeasty, flour. Flavor is light sweet, moderate acidic, light bitter. Dry, watery texture. Soft carbonation. BlackHaddock (7690) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2012
Brown 33cl bottle, best before 31st Dec 2012. Poured into a ’Hoegaarden Grand Cru’ stemmed tulip. This is the first beer in an ’odd ball reviewing evening’ (June 2011).
Almost pilsner in looks, bright golden yellow with a good deep snow white foaming head. I left the sediment in the bottle, hence the clean, clear appearance.
The yeasty aroma tells you it isn’t a pilsner, the smell is a good blend of mixed herbs and spices along with the yeast esters.
The flavours found in the smell are all there within the taste also, lovely well balanced brew which has good carbonisation and an alcohol content that is happy to stay in the background rather than taking over like some beers within this style. A peppery feel in the aftertatse, very pleasant.
A good beer, easy to drink and one of the best I’ve had from France (who as brewers are going up in my estimation).
larsga (7656) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 31, 2011
Big offwhite head. Slightly hazy yellow body with strong
carbonation. Fruity herbal aroma with papery notes. Fairly
bland. Dry-sweet herbal fruity taste with honey and paper notes.
Light body. Mild, mealy mouthfeel. Dryish mealy honey
aftertaste with papery notes. Very bland and boring, but
perfectly drinkable. (0.33l bottle, I forget where from.)
