Bottle. [thank you, omhper]cgarvieuk (25705) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 1, 2007
Pours a wonderful dark red-brown amber with a small creamy head that leaves lots of lacing. Aroma is hoppy, slight pine and fruits. Very creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is powerful, extremely hoppy. At first it feels like sucking a pine cone, but as it slowly mellows, there are smoky tones mixed with fruity hops as well. Good, but probably a bit too harsh in its hop character.
Bottle RBESG 07 ... Brown copper colour ... slight vinegary nose ... deep fruit and odd mustyness, little smokey ... didnt really work for me. RoyceH (1200) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - AUG 30, 2007
Bottle, RBESG Grand Tasting 07. Thanks per. Coppery red, thin off-white head. Smoky charcoal and plenty of malt. Some chocolate and slightly lactic showing. Mouth is very smoky, plasticy malt, smoked sausage. Finishes sweet smoky coating feeling. Bitter dry right at the end. Liked it. rlgk (18852) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 30, 2007

Bottle at RBESG. Rich amber colour with an off white head. Fruity aroma with light smoky notes. Hoppy and floral flavour with some nice smooth maltage and a bitter finish with good length.

Bottled thansk to Per, rbesg07. Alround i couldnt figure out if this was a wheat beer or pale ale? Anyway good balanced biscuity/wheaty malt, creamy texture with good hops balancing it out. omhper (25547) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 5, 2007
Bottled. Clear copper colour, brief average sized head. Rich aroma of pineapple, gooseberry and peach. Dry and very light bodied with fairly clean mouthfeel. Loads of perfumy hops takes over. There is just sufficient malt to makes sure it avoids being thin. Lingering really bitter finish. Best folköl ever?
