Holmen1 (3265) - Stavanger, NORWAY - APR 6, 2015
Flaske delt med Willy på brygga 2.påskedag: lett uklar brunlig ravfarge med krydderaroma (og et aldri så lite snev av røykmalt?). Krydder (ingefær, kardemomme og en knivsodd nellik) dominerer smaken. Vi savner maltrkopp til å balansere dette, blir for tynn i kroppen og noe vandig i avslutningen. Jula varte dessverre ikke helt til påske denne gangen.

tfredvik (1318) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 11, 2015
Pours a slightly hazy amber body with an off-white, long-lived head that ends up as a thin layer, excellent lacing. Quite strong aroma of juniper berries, sweet fruits and hay. Pretty strong flavour of juniper berries, spices, pine, faint fruits and citrus in the back, and vague hints of smoke. Light sweet and light bitter taste. Light body, dry and with a moderate carbonation. Very nice!
[50 cl bottle, enjoyed 2 years before BB date, from ICA Ullevål, Oslo]

Pours white-brown head, disappearing within second. Tastes a very slight amount of citric fruits. Nothing exciting about this beer.

Rapp (9) - NORWAY - DEC 27, 2014 does not count
God lukt, fin farge, ok skum og god smak. Altfor tynn. Ville gjettet på en ekstra krydret, men litt utvannet blonde.

RickFifty (630) - Fredrikstad, NORWAY - DEC 3, 2014
Hazy amber color, off-white head. Ginger nose, caramel, cardamom, cinnamon, dried fruit. Caramel taste, fruity, ginger, citrus, juniper. Dry, fruity and sweet finish. Medium body, soft carbonation. Nice Norwegian grocery store Christmas beer.

asimeow (181) - Sandsli, NORWAY - NOV 22, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 6, 2015 22.11.2014: 0,5l bottle. Brown,fuzzy,cloudy. Caramel head. Long lasting. Malty aroma with hints of oranges, plums, and some spices. Lovely flavour, dark, malty, ripe fruit. Very good Xmas brew. Slightly watery for a top score, though, but again...for a 4.7%, this is good. 06.05.2015: 0,5l bottle. Last one at the local store. Really watery, but still a decent beer. Expected this to have "aged" better, though.

Wischylini (160) - Grimstad, NORWAY - JAN 15, 2014
Pours a hazy brown-red colour, with a small white head that fades away quickly. The aroma is dominated by clove, amongst other spices, and a medicinal aroma. There’s also some raisins and malt. The taste is medium sweet, and somewhat bitter. The mouthfeel is slick and oily, and the carbonation is medium-low.

nilsas (2119) - Bryne, NORWAY - JAN 11, 2014
Duft av malt, krydder, rosin og frukter. Brun farge. Tynt lag skum langs kant. Friks smak av krydder, rosin og frukter.
