3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is malty and sweet, with cherries, caramel, oak, dry with a slightly carbonated hint. Ruby red color with a nice off white head that slowly settles, leaving behind some very nice lacing. Flavor has caramel and malts, slightly sweet, and little less exciting than I was lead to expect from the aroma. Still a nice brew.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A friend of mine had a few selections of this beer and generously shared a couple with me. I thought it was an odd combination of a belgian style ale and a bottle of liquified dried fruit (well then it wouldn't be dried fruit anymore would it) maybe reconstituted dried fruit. At any rate, it wasn't too bad, I think it was an old bottle that doesn't age well... poured nicely with a large pink head and a ruby colored body, decent flavor of oak and malts. Hmm, interesting.

A good Chistmas style beer. Clean, crisp taste with fruity, sweet, and bitter flavors.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from Ica, Vikersund. Clear, reddish brown colour. Finger-thick offwhite head that reduces quickly. Slightly sweet malty aroma quite well balanced with soft hop bitterness. Finishes too sour. Very average brew that failed to induce xmas emotions.

cloudy throughout. Tons of barley in the nose, I like that familiar Aass aroma. Nice and malty, with a dry-ish finish. Sweet stuff.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
weak caramel, malt wort and a hint of spices in the aroma. Amber with a off white head. Medium sweet and light bitterness. Light body with a lively carbonation. Overall totally OK, but not something to remember.
