2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
0.33 l bottle, thanks hanniku! Hazy yellow color with thick sorbet head. Sweet and spicy aroma with pepper, menthol, menthol, cheese, tart berries. Dry, bitter and spicy flavor with nutty maltiness . Strong lingering bitterness towards finish. Oily palate, medium body. Spiciness and strong bitterness is not such a great combination.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Ølhandleriet. Amber/golden, a bit hazy body, good white head, lasting. Crispy aroma of malt, lime, grapefruit, subtle sourness. Fruity and bitter taste, hoppy with citrus fruits, though a very thin body. Hardly notable malt profile, though at 3,8% that’s forgivable. For a beer of this low strength I find this a very good option.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
33 cl bottle @ home. Batch #609(_uu): BBE 07/2014
Foam fills my big Tripel Karmeliet ‐glass and there is still beer in the bottle. Aroma has urinal cake, earthy notes, some lemon, grassy notes and hints of caramel. Flavour is sourish and tart with urinal cake, earthy notes, biscuits and hints of caramel. Definitely not your typical bitter – more like a Belgian ale. And actually quite close to Orval.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
¡CUIDADO AL ABRIR LA BOTELLA! La espuma brotó como la lava de un volcán y puso la mesa y el suelo perdido. De color marrón claro y cuerpo espeso. Muy espumosa. Con espuma abundante y pegajosa. Olores a cítricos y pino. Sabor ligeramente cítrico con fondo amargo/malteado. Lo bueno: refrescante y con poco alcohol.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
BEWARE! The head is a f*cking foam bath! It didn’t explode out of the bottle though. The aroma is soapy and smells a bit like a fart. The body is watery but there are pleasant flavors of citrus and pine needles from the hops. There’s plenty of crispiness from the carbonation. This is actually pretty damn good.

33cl bottle from Varnaveien mineralvann, Moss. Pours slightly hazy golden with an enormous white head. Hoppy and fruity aroma with citrus, spices and some yeasty (bretty?) and floral notes. Lightly sweet and fruity with a solid citrussy bitterness in the dry finish. Bitter aftertaste with grapefruity. Flavourful and refreshing.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle, Nuetnigenough, Brussels, 18 Oct 2012) Hazy golden colour with huge, white head. Spicy, hoppy nose with citrus, grapefruit, earthy hops and slightly spicy yeast. Fruity, spicy taste with notes of citrus, grapefruit, spicy yeast, grass and a generous earthy bitterness in the finish. Light body, quite dry. Very nice hop character. The low abv makes this very drinkable. Nice one.
