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? RoyceH (1199) - 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. ante (3373) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 30, 2007
Bottled. Pours out in a clear brownish amber colour with rich firm head. Fruity and hoppy aroma of nectarines, flowers and kiwi with notes of burnt rubber. Light-bodied with a strong hop charcter; pine-needles and grass with an metallic edge. Long bitter finish of grass. MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2007
A Mes rate:

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.
Bottled (thanks omhper!). Coppery amber colour with mediumsized beige head. Aroma is big grassy and flowery hops along with some balancing up caramel. Flavour is really hoppy, grassy and earthy. A wellbalanced and quite fullbodied beer. DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2007
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. rlgk (18851) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 30, 2007
(RBESG 2007, Glasgow. Bottle) Amber color, offwhite head. Fruity, malty and a bit hopyy aroma. Hoppy, grassy and a bit metallic flavor, some bready biscuit notes. Bov (13005) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - OCT 1, 2007
courtesy of Per - clear dark amber colour with a little pale beige foam; good hoppy aroma with a fair load of caramel; a modest malt body, clean palate; a respectable late bitterness introduces a dry bitter and aromatic hoppy finish where more caramelish notes appear Rastacouere (6177) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 2, 2007
Hazy copper, 1cm white head. Sharply hoppy, spicey, herbal, floral and highly mineral offering. The aroma is bursting and makes a statement at wanting to showcase hops and caring little about balance. Faded malt character confirms that. Salty, meaty almost in its deployment, still a bit of toastiness can be felt under the brash hops, but you find yourself kinda digging the concept even if you’re not a hophead.
