oh6gdx (25997) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 17, 2012
Bottled (old backlog). Slightly hazy yellow colour with some stuff floating around. Mediumsized creamy white head that leaves quite a nice lace. Aroma is citrus, zestyness, some yeast as well as some sweet grainy notes. Flavour is wheatlike, mild spices, yeast, citrus and some slight toffee. Some slight notes of alcohol to be noted.

thewolf (12303) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAY 6, 2008
Bottle @ YNWA, Kolding.
Pours clear neon-yellow with small floaties. A nice, creamy white head on top. Aroma is sweet, lemony, oranges, apples and a light doughy tone to the malts. Fine, light mouthfeel. Flavour is softly fruity, good sweet maltiness and apple notes again. Fine, powerful, citric bitterness at the end. Very drinkable.

TrefwoordPunk (1054) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - JAN 11, 2008
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a cloudy yellow with a small white head and an intense grainy aroma with citric notes. The flavor is grainy with some notes of roasted grain. There are lots of different notes in here, biscuits, caramel, mocca, citrus, ripe fruits and spices. The finish is roasty at first, becomes sweet like ripe peaches and then turns on to more hoppy bitterness. I love this brew!

altonbrownd (5898) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - NOV 16, 2007
Bottle from Bierkoning. Nice peachy colour. Slight head. Nose of oranges and citrus. Taste also fruity. Hoppy. Nicely carbonated. Not sure what spelt tastes like but a pleasant tasting beer. Quite spicy in the finish. Really good, actually.

Rastacouere (6174) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 21, 2007
Cloudy dull yellow, immediately fading head despite the active carbonation is a sad sight. Little aroma really. A certain graininess is felt, but not much more. In mouth, the focus is totally and only on cereals and spelt of course. Still, the focus is really well pulled. Even though there are pretty much no other flavours, those feel quite sufficient, hay-like, strawy and pleasantly simple.

Otje (678) - Veendam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 4, 2007
Very soft beer, just like the others from Ooijen Brewery. Hazy yellow, small head. Aromas of coriander, wheat(spelt?) and oranges. Tastes sweetish, wheaty, some spices and near the end there is a typical spelt-taste, like eating spelt-bread: bit earthy, bitterish and nutty. Nice one.

JorisPPattyn (9717) - Ursel, BELGIUM - FEB 18, 2004
Very pale yellow; thick, huge white head, going lacey. End of bottle is full of super-flunky islands. Nice perfumey nose, with coriander and lunaria. Very nice. Taste is rather soupy because of the coriander, but that is the only negative I can find. Sweet, but not overly so, with a spicey character. rather light mouthfeel. Nice - not as great as the Eikelbier, but all the same. Maybe a touch too much coriander?

omhper (24353) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 4, 2003
Bottled. Cloudy pale yellow. Spicy, wheay nose. Soft and light bodied with notes of mustard. Refreshing!

jbrus (4990) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - MAR 20, 2003
Malty aroma with a hint of citrus. Cloudy honey color, white head, very good lace. Light sweet, light lemon, refreshing, medium body. Light bitter finish.
