reebtogi (6403) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 17, 2012
473ml can pours a golden color with a finger of white head that leaves a few specks of lacing on the glass. Aroma is grassy with with hints of yeast and spice. Taste is a grassy hop bitterness with an underlying malty sweetness and hints of yeast and spices. Light to medium bodied with some decent carbonation. A fairly common beer from a supposed uncommon brewer. Ok, but nothing really special.

mansquito (6972) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUL 15, 2012
Total Wine Fairfax 4-pack of cans: Pours an orange colour with a white head. Aroma is very fruity, with a noticeable amount of yeast. Taste is somewhat sweet. Hops are present. Uncommon Brewers always throws in some extras in there of weird flavours. That being said, this beer is much more standard than their bizarre Gemini Ale. This was also pretty good to drink on a roasty summer day out in the hot sun.

At Copenhagen Beer Celebration. Golden with a small white head. Aroma of grainy malt, tropical fruit and phenolic spice. Dry fruity and spicy flavour with a yeasty touch.

tfredvik (2055) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 29, 2012
Hazy yellow body with a tiny but long-lasting white head, ok lacing. Very pleasant sweet and crisp aroma with yeast, spices and citrus. Light sweet taste and an unusually prominent acidity. Extremely crisp and citric flavour profile, lots and lots of lemon! Also yeast and spices. Lovely thirst-quenching mouthfeel. One of the most refreshing brews I’ve ever had!

JoeMcPhee (9587) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 28, 2012
Tap at Rogue Wetbar. Pale golden straw colour. The nose is lovely and a little bit spicy. A touch of coriander and clove along with a touch of soft honeyed sweetness. A little touch of something like toffee but it’s got a nice softness as well. Spicy yeast with a touch of light white pepper on the back. Simple, but nicely dry and spicy. Like a saison brewed with witbier yeast.

visionthing (5561) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 24, 2012
On tap at Gaasa, Oslo. Slightly hazy golden with a small white head. Fruity aroma with lightly yeasty notes, citrus, pineapple and malt. Lightly sour with some bitterness in the finish. Sour and citric aftertaste with hints of apples. Quite nice and refreshing on a sunny afternoon in the backyard of Gaasa. (2012-06-22)

Cunningham (8459) - Halden, NORWAY - JUN 24, 2012
Hazy golden colour with a white head. A nice acidic (lemon?) and fruity (mango?) aroma. Milde moderate sweet flavour. Also acidic and fruity. A mix between lemon and mango. Nice refreshing beer.

Kestral (506) - Årnes, NORWAY - JUN 22, 2012
[email protected] Hazy orange, small white head. Looks innocent enough. Aroma is very subdued at first. Only a hint of lemon and some wheat. The first sip slaps you in the face with a barrage of lemon/lime, bananas, spicy fenols, loads of wheat. It’s probably the most lemony beer I’ve ever had. Quite acidic, but with just barely enough malt sweetness to keep it reined in. This is actually pretty extreme, like an IPA though it’s not bitter. I just now read it’s brewed with poppy. I don’t know how poppy tastes, but I guess that’s what, amongst other things, gives it its lemony side. Otherwise I would have thought this was brewed with a ton of lemon zest and a couple of tons of sorachi ace. Light bodied, fairly mellow carbonation which suits it since the acidity already rinses the palate well enough. This is refreshing, raw and very different, and a great summer drink, though perhaps the citric acidity is a tad too much for some. I dug it.
