Svesse (6157) - Hässelby, - JUL 15, 2012
(Draught at Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen, 6 July 2012) Amber colour with frothy, off-white head. Malty, fruity nose with orange peel, citrus, apricots and tropical fruit. Malty, fruity taste with notes of grainy malt, blood oranges and dried apricots. Good citric bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with balanced sweetness. A bit different, but I kind of liked the fruity character in this one. Nice.

On tap at Ridgewood (Raleigh). Amber with an ever-do-slight reddish tint. Malt and hop aroma. Taste is a big complex - better than your average pilsner. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Drake (8563) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - FEB 19, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 20, 2014 Kentucky Fried Charleston Trip Beer #28. Draft at County Club. Pours a slightly hazy red-orange color with a large foamy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of big citrus notes, pale malt, mild breadiness, faint herbal hops. The taste is citrus, pith, pale malts, hoppy finish. Medium bodied, fairly bright, slight lingering bitterness, good balance.

Very interesting. Bitter hoppiness right up front and throughout. Slightly sweet but has a really strange mouthfeel, light and sharp. I'm pretty much indecided about this one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft. Poured clear copper color with moderate fizzy white color head that diminished slowly with good lacing. Good sweet fruit aroma. Medium body with smooth texture and soft carbonation. Moderate sweet flavor with a moderate sweet fruit bite finish of medium duration. Interesting beer.

DrSilverworm (6400) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 14, 2013
Swing-top half growler from Party Source, filled about 4 hours ago. Labeled as a "blood orange pilsener". Clear orange copper color. Good thin white head. Nice spread of dotty lace. Smooth, very light carbonation. Lightly dry texture. Very easy drinking. Nice mild tart taste, pretty refreshing. I dig the blood orange flavor, kind of some tart raspberry notes to it. Tasty, drinkable, refreshing stuff.

Finn (4210) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 3, 2013
Fra fat på Craft Beer Co, Brixton 4 Nov 12. Mørk gylden. Litt uklar. Litt skum som fester seg til glasset. Litt tung plommearoma. Smaken som aromaen. Bra - men litt kjedelig.

Rune (8065) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 2, 2012
Half-pint served chilled from keg at Craft Beer Co in Brixton, shared with Finn. Apricot coloured body, near-clear. Fragile layer at the surface. Fresh and dried fruity hops to the nose. Fresh apricot fruity taste added by red oranges and by mid-sweet malts beneath. Long-lived bitter finish. Medium bodied. Good last drink at the place (Greater London, 04.11.2012).

POLK (2219) - Hørning, DENMARK - NOV 7, 2012
Tap @ Fairbar: Very hoppy with balanced fruit beer. Tastes like there used English hops. Where is the taste of the blood orange?

On tap at Craft Beer Co. Okay, this one was such a bright, delicious surprise. Blood oranges in a dry, zesty, hoppy beer = YUM. Healthy, vibrant orange body with a medium prickly head. Nose was righteous hops and fruit, and there was a bit of malt sweetness to balance things out in the taste. Oranges weren’t over-assertive, thankfully, and complemented a nicely realized hoppy base quite well.
