Fra fat på Carinaltreff des-12 (gml. notater): gylden og med deilig aroma av belgisk malt, kandis og ølgjær. Krydder og fruktighet både i aroma og smak. Sødmen er balansert med humlene, og dett er er deilig øl.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Cardinal. Clear, dark golden body with a nice, dense, off-white head. Aroma has distinct Belgium yeast, spices, caramel and a hint of honey. Flavor is sweet malt, gentle caramel/candy sugar, spices, Belgium yeast and warming alcohol. Fine body, feels thick and soft. A damn good interpretation of a Belgium syle where good samples is rare. Well made.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
From tap @ Grünerløkka Mat & Mikroølfestival. Beautiful apperance; Deep gold with an orangey hue. Medium-sized off-blond cream head. Sweet-scented, brown sugary malt aroma, with an inviting whiff of bubble-gummy, belgo-style yeast. Taste is brown sugar-sweet malty, balanced by pepper and spice tones and a distinct fruity bitterness. Thick in the mouth, More than medium full. Sweet, spiced and mild bitter ending. A well-crafted one, maybe a tad too sweet on my tongue.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. Deep golden to amber colour, hazy. Moderate white head. Beguiling aroma of Belgian ale yeast, malts and kandij sugar, with distinct spicy and fruity notes. The fairly complex flavour is sweet and fruity, but not cloying, and the sweetness is balanced by a distinct spicy character and tolerable hops. Not a quick thirstquencher, but a truly enjoyable beer!
